      ..If you are new to the area, a returning member, or even a long time local but new to the Forum, this is the place to stop in and say Hello and chew the fat..

      ..It's kind of like a family campfire setting to pop in and discuss local topics that are of interest to all of us in the area from the weather to where a good place to go and visit might be..[​IMG]

      ..If you are new to the area and have questions about pretty much anything regionally, feel free to ask them here..

      ..No politics, business, or such...:nono:

      ..Let's keep it light..[​IMG]

      Hmm, I'd be REALLY thirsty by the time I got there. Good thing I have a mixed case of Alaskan Amber and Pyramid Hefeweizen in the trailer fridge.

      Headed to Eastern WA in a couple hours, supposed to be mid 90's there.

      ..I really wish we had more time in Moab this last trip...

      ..Between this :burnout: and this :hammer:, I wish we had more time at the campgrounds getting to socialize a little more like this [​IMG]

      Why does the planning for the trips seem like they are forever away but the actual trips are so brief?

      ..Since it is the weekend for the 100* temps throughout the Southwest, here's a cold one for all..:chug:

      Hey gang, its TOOOOOOOLTIIIIME! Was surfing around when suddenly the smell of beeeeer pointed me to this here deal. Im in Vegas, I like to go fast in my 02 2wd sort of pre-runner project. When its time to head up in elevation, I hop in my Toyota 4-Runner with the few mods on it, point and shoot onwards and upwards! Im pretty handy with most types of vehicles and chassis setups. So, ask away! :chug:

      What is CCR, aside from the great band Credence Clearwater Revival?
      Im kinda in prep mode myself. Getting ready to pick a complete rear end from a boneyard, springs and all. My 02 ST has drums in the rear, the wrong gear,and the front eyelet bushings of the rear springs are gone. So for just a tad more than what Ford wants per bushing, I found an 8.8 from a 97-01 Eddie Bauer Expy with everything I need. Springs, Discs, 4.10 gear, and Limited slip. The 4.10's will be just ok. I think I would rather go with a 4.30, or at max a 4.56. And I could use the extra leaf springs so I can toy with spring rates and handling. But hey, for under three hundred Im in!:burnout:

      ..This is something you might be interested in...;)

      ..2 wheel gofast, 4 wheel crawling, camping, movies, buffet, 24 hr. entertainment, and more..:D

      ..It's a great place to meet forum members, their vehicles, and just socialize...We actually have people who just fly in so they can grab a spare seat just to ride along and other people just bring the minivan and kids for the day to meet everyone..

      Life got busy at the beginning of the summer and into June. And the last few weeks I've been spending time by a pool or by the beach.

      My brother is still with the S10, currently down with engine issues.
