      Just got my time off approved so I'm definitely in. Going to rent a toy to bring out there since I can't afford to break the explorer (no AAA tows until November) thinking of either a 2016 Limited 4WD just to see what it can do, or a Jeep Renegade Trailhawk. Ideas? I've seen that the trailhawk is actually pretty good off road, aside from having no travel

      Don't worry about being a "little dog". I don't think there will be enough of us to split into different groups. There are so many optional trails in Truckhaven, there is nearly always a bypass trail if you can't make it through. Its a great place to learn your rigs capabilities.

      Well, the explorer is still ready (mechanically)... I changed the steering box out on the van so the sector shaft is no longer moving sideways...

      I did find another issue..


      That's the trac bar (runs a weird double trac bar)... I'm using Ford radius arm bushings.... So I need to find a set (maybe go poly this time).... That slop plus the sticking outer tie rod isn't bad but I'd prefer to not have that issue when pulling the trailer...

      On a different subject.... Is there still a count of how many people are going to make it AND I didn't see a popluck thread? No potluck this year?

      Also interested in potluck info. I'll be bringing some Mac and Cheese to share. And not the Kraft in a box kind either

      Just finished putting JP back together. Everything lined up good the time with the new locker. I'll test drive tomorrow when I get home from work, but it should be good.

      Bummer, Dave!

      It looks like I'm not bringing that YXZ after all. Someone at the office rolled it last weekend and totaled it. I'll be bringing a Wolverine instead. It's really more suited for the area, but I was looking forward to driving the YXZ.

      Getting excited to be out there. :thumbsup:

      I'm on schedule to leave the house Wednesday mid-morning. Should be all packed and ready today, with the exception of filling the holding tank with H2O and hooking up the Explorer.

      Looks like its going to be hot out there https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/18755:21:US
      Same temps as predicted here in San Diego.

      Like I posted earlier, I have a new to me RV that most of you have seen before: I sold my RV and took possession of my parent's rig, that has been mostly parked for the past few years. Its the double slide-out white 35' Dolphin, so don't look for the Winnebago. I will park the Explorer so its visible to approaching vehicles.

      Rick has been up there before, but I plan on parking a few hundred feet further down the mesa.

      I think we have a few RV's, one creepy white van sleeper :confused:, and the rest are tent campers. The spot I have in mind worked well for a similar group at TDS last year. There are a several soft and smooth spots for tents.

      Still on target to go, though I don't know which day yet (Thursday or Friday). Either day will be about an 11 AM arrival.

      Sigh.. That's the one thing I don't have this time....

      I are an idiot.. I had my weeks wrong until last Sunday (which is how I got tomorrow off.. different week)... so I didn't make it to the lumber yard to grab the 1/8th cord and they aren't open tomorrow... Of course, it's supposed to be hot so we won't need too much.... I can grab 5 bags from the ampm.... might even save me money since I won't be hauling the wood all the way...
