Hello,
New to the area (Irwin/Barstow), but long time Jeeper. Have an old 82 CJ5 back home. Army guy for over 16 yrs. Married with a 7 yr, 5 yr, and 6 month old. Been lurking the forum for a couple years but was overseas so never joined. Look forward to meeting others around here.

Just picked up a new 2012 black Altitude tonight. Like the Godfather said, " make him a deal he can't refuse." Not exactly what I wanted, but I can live with it and make it better over time. Hard to pass up. Anyway, posting from my phone, and can't get a pic to load, but will post some tomorrow.

Congrats and welcome!

Welcome Champs... You still active. We have quite a few from Irwin on here. Lots of runs for a family guy to go to. We are doing a Meet and Greet in Calico this weekend. Friday is campfire night, saturday is trail day. Mild to wild. Sunday is a wedding in the Ghost town. 70+ rigs coming. Be a good place to just stop by or go on an easy trail for fun.

Welcome to the forum, congrats on the new rig. You are in a good place to launch from. You will enjoy exploring Death Valley from where you are. Plenty of fire roads to explore most with an obstacle or two that keep it interesting.

Welcome, beautiful Jeep. Of course there's a five minute window with black, that's how long it stays clean :D But boy does it look awesome for those five minutes :thumb:

Here's the link for the Calico run this weekend, go to page 1 for the updated information. Hope you can make it out, it will be amazing to have so many Jeeps in one place.
