Memorial Day Weekend Plans
 
Anyone interested in getting out for a day trip this weekend? Open for Ideas, any day as well.

gregaf3 05-23-2013 12:00 PM

no plans as of yet. Where are the pictures of your lift?

RepairMan 05-23-2013 05:44 PM

I'd probably be down for Saturday. Nothing is nailed down yet.

Saturday is good for me, Still wanting to do Lovell Canyon to Trout Canyon over into Pahrump, with a return via Wheeler Pass depending on Timing. Any other Ideas I am open, just wanting to get out.

I would love too go but I am down for some repairs. Trapping 4 gals in the tank so time to cut a hole and pull the pump. Speedo gear is stripped in the T-Case got to crack the case half flush all the little plastic turds and put in the new parts. Brakes pulling hard left front right must not be working right. So I have 5 days off to get everything done. If I get lucky and get done early I will jump in anywhere.

jokerchief462 05-23-2013 08:31 PM

raythom3 looks real good lifted love the picture. Great work.

Looks good Ray. I do like the little groups within the groups. I was thinking about starting a group of my own. "Non lifted JKU Rubi's with spacers and two toddler car seats"

LOL. You might end up being one of one in that group.

Heading to Big Bear to test the new lift and wheels out

LVRaptor 05-24-2013 02:35 AM

I am so wanting to get out but just have no time.

Stormeister 05-24-2013 10:27 AM

I'm In
 
Lovell to Wheeler or anything else sounds good to me as long as it's after 8 after the Monaco Grand Prix (race on Sunday, qualifying Saturday).
Heck, when I'm not so time challenged I think we could pull off Rocky Gap to Wheeler Pass some day.

Somebody name a meetup time and place...

Xodius 05-24-2013 12:39 PM

Maintenance on my rig. I have a list of things to do on it. I may pull it in garage and start to ought and finish tomorrow. We will see how the wife takes keeping hers outside...plus I have to figure how to snug mine in so I can close the door. Lol. I miss my old garage.

Stormeister 05-24-2013 02:31 PM

A-a-a-gh! Indy!!

Saturday would be better for me since the Indianapolis 500 is Sunday.

Monday'd be OK too, if Ray's not working his crews Memorial Day.

Does this involve rocky gap road? Or is it a trail ride? I don't know if I've seen info on those canyons.

raythom3 05-24-2013 08:39 PM

Wasn't planning on Rocky Gap, just wanting to explore from the Lovell Canyon side over to Trout Canyon down into Pahrump. Still open to another route if anyone else has any other thoughts.

RepairMan 05-24-2013 09:02 PM

I'm good without doing rocky gap.

gregaf3 05-24-2013 09:08 PM

I will be at a buddies cabin in cold creek and playing around wheelers pass most of saturday

raythom3 05-24-2013 09:27 PM

Rocky Gap will Work. Meet at Dunkin Donuts on Charleston just west of the 215 at 9:00am, leave by 9:30. Might still try Lovell Canyon after Rocky Gap. Just have to see what kind of time we have.

RepairMan 05-24-2013 09:30 PM

I'm not interested in rocky gap, that's why I said I'd be good not doing it.

raythom3 05-24-2013 09:47 PM

Didn't catch the without part. Sitting here having a few Patron Margaritas with the wife. I am fine with that. Still meet at 9:00am.

RepairMan 05-24-2013 09:56 PM

Sure, want to edit your first post with 0900 at the dunkin donuts? Lovell, trout and wheelers.

LV.Wrangler.13 05-24-2013 11:50 PM

I would join you guys, but I'm doing a geo-caching run with the Desert Wranglers tomorrow morning. I'll have to catch you on the next one. Have fun!

NO Rocky Gap OK With Me
 
Shouldn't have mentioned a someday trip on a thread for this weekend.

Lovell Canyon starts paved east of Mtn Springs and there's a back way towards Pahrump.
Wheeler is the "short" way from Pahrump to the prison near 95.
They should be straightforward on MapQuest.

I'll be at Dunkin' @ 9 and follow wherever.

LVRaptor 05-25-2013 11:02 AM

Rabbit and I are here at dunkins, made it last min

RepairMan 05-25-2013 09:45 PM

Good run!

raythom3 05-25-2013 10:28 PM

Yep, Interesting route and good people made it a great day. A little longer than I was expecting but overall a decent trip.

RepairMan 05-25-2013 11:40 PM

I might suggest today's intended route as a desert wranglers trip for June or July. One of us could lead it, with another prerun to make it run smoother.

I had fun today and since it was mostly at higher elevation it could be run even in the middle of summer. Especially since we would air down and up at the higher elevations.

LVRaptor 05-26-2013 12:52 PM

Great trip and People always = GREAT TIME!!!!!!! glad we made it.
