      Needs tires, oil pan, registration and insurance. 40s would be nice but my half ton axles wouldn't agree.

      Thanks Rick

      Five more days.

      I know most participants are showing up Friday, but when is everyone leaving? I am planning on staying somewhere out there until the 14th. If everyone is leaving Monday, I am going to move closer to Borrego Springs for the last few days and camp off of Rockhouse Rd. Maybe make a run into Coyote Canyon area.

      Looks like I am in..

      My neighbor is loaning me his truck and trailer. I got the tires on the explorer last Sunday and I've driven it to work a few days (60 miles round trip) and other than the drivers window motor is weak (won't roll up/down on it's own) everything seems to be working.

      Now I need to dig out my old tent and/or find a big ass tarp to just put over the pig board on the truck for a makeshift tent.

      At the moment I'm heading out Thursday morning and coming back Sunday.

      ~Mark

      I had to work yesterday instead of packing. I usually take two days to pack for a week long trip like this. I am going to wait until tomorrow morning to finish packing stuff like tools, welder and firewood, so I probably won't be out there until mid-afternoon. I am not in a big hurry to get out there this time anyways.

      I invited three or four people to come out, and they still all "Maybe". They are all Jeep owners anyways, so no big loss. One of them voiced her concerns at scratching her Rubicon. I asked her why she bought a Rubicon if she did not plan on getting it dirty. She didn't have an answer.

      Lol Still not bringing the H2! The thought of trying to get all the dust and dirt out of it makes me cringe. It's not a 100 point truck but it trys

      I arrived about 3PM, walked around and was looking for a campsite when Sasha the Wonder Dog found it for us. She trotted about a 100 yards off and took a huge dookie right next to a most excellent fire ring. I decided right then and there, that was the spot. Its in the same area as last time we were out here, just farther back. Smooth road back to here. If it gets crowded over the weekend we should be separated from other groups. I am sitting outside working on my laptop, getting paid to camp. I am using the phone for Wi-Fi hot spot, never did that before. Pretty cool, a little slow, but cool.

      Behold;
      20181107_161924.jpg

      I tried to upload a panorama photo but the file was too big to show you all how crowded it is out here. There is not one other rig within 360* view.

      Wish I could join you out there Brian. I'll be halfway there working in Thermal tomorrow at The Thermal Club. It's a high falutin' private racetrack for the rich folks to play with their exotic cars. We are painting all the houses being built there. The houses are basically garages with a house built around it...the garages hold around 15 cars comfortably.
