      It becomes a mud run. Last time I picked up mud at truckhaven, it was horrible to get off..

      There's a good flyover vid on the Coachella Valley page on FB/Instagram of the Box Canyon washout.
      I was in Pioneertown Friday night and it was getting pretty bad up there. Roads turned into rivers...it was a little scary getting back home to the low desert.

      Looks like I will be taking the long way to Truck Haven. The amount of material they have to remove to reclaim the road is just unimaginable.

      It rained fairly hard most of the night Friday, but nothing since. Maybe it cleared out and notched the ditches for us.

      Camping locations:

      We have two excellent places to camp at Truckhaven. The mesa to the north of Marina Rd and above the Truckhaven Arches is my preferred spot, but I know a few people don't like it. Its an interesting drive up to the top of the mesa but if I can do it, everyone else can. It has a much nicer view and less vehicle traffic.

      The other spot is off the end of Marina Rd. I will be out there on Wednesday afternoon, so I can stake our claim to any spot we want. I am good either way. Its possible a bunch of other groups are camping at Truckhaven that weekend.

      Is @zukman coming?

      We are now planning on trying to get there. Got somethings to fix first. The current plan is to leave here Wednesday AM, be there sometime late Wednesday night, stay till Monday AM, head back that morning after dumping tanks at the Red Earth Casino and filling the Superduty's fuel tank.

      Brian, can you drop a pin once you get out there?

      JP is on jack stands in the front right now as I reinforced the front shock towers today and I'm going to repack all the front bearings. Haven't done it sense I built it.

      Both! LOL

      Yesterday I told Char that I better cool it because I have run my body down over the past couple weeks doing all the things that got pushed aside over the summer. I've done yard work, four oil changes, shocks on the Mustang, brake booster on the Explorer, new center support bearing on the Ram and more...:eek:

      No rest for the wicked though, I still have to give the trailer a once over.

      I can take the bronco as is. There are a few small things that I would like to get done on it before the trip. Camping supplies is what I really need to go through and add to.
