      I was hoping to make this run but it's looking doubtful. Among other things two bolts suddenly broke on the Superlift torsion bar drop bracket last week. All while pulling into a grocery store. I fixed it but I am worried about all the other Superlift bolts so will be slowly replacing the others.

      Steve, you still got that huge tent? Throw it in the truck and come on out.

      Come-on Joe, you can still come. Throw the extra bolts in the back and we will replace them as they break.

      Wait a minute. ...who said I wasn't coming? :D

      Just means I can bring more firewood :p

      I'll be out Friday or just come out for the day Saturday. Not sure yet.

      Sold the tent last year, and need to go buy one for my girl scouts anyway. So I'll figure it out.

      Hey guys, planning on heading out sometime friday. I'll be in my DD unfortunately, the Ranger is still out of commission.

      I've got a bunch of mesquite wood to bring out. If someone feels like bringing a chainsaw there's some bigger rounds that need to be cut up.

      I tried.. I really tried.. I can't get the time off... I've only been there (as an employee) long enough for 3 paychecks so I have no vacation time yet.

      The good thing is I'll have accrued vacation time by the time October comes around so I'll be able to take time off. I think I'm going to use some of my raise to regear and possibly go up a tire size too...

      More corporate fun is I can't get to EF from work now that I'm on an "employee" computer... and by the time I get home I have too much crap to do.. this has been annoying.

      I am all gassed up and packed up. Only need to pull the Explorer out of the garage, hook it to the back of the RV and hit the road. Was thinking of leaving about 3pm today, but it has been pouring rain here all day. It appears the rain has already stopped at Salton Sea. Hope the flat off Marina is not a mud pit. I will advise upon my arrival. The good news is its supposed to stop raining by tomorrow morning for my drive out, and there should not be much dust out there.

      Well it's raining hard at my house, was worried it might be a mud show this weekend. But it doesn't show it raining at Salton Sea.

      The sign at the Y is missing, but the posts are still there. Turn right here.

      It rained all the way out until I started down the grade into Borrego Springs. Doesn't look like it rained much out here.
