      Never thought I would see an FJ, playing with you guys out there. How did it do with that IFS?

      A lotta three tire action, but he only touched the body once where you see my big ass laying on the ground moving the rocks from being against the side of his truck. He christened the hell out of his rock sliders though. It helped that he had a rear locker and front trac-loc thing that kept killing power on him to cause the truck to grab.

      If that's all that was done to it, I call that a good time!

      Hats off to him for bringing it, and pushing it out there.

      I don't have many pictures of the group run. I will get the ones my wife took when I get home. This post is mostly for Tom. I am camped out near Borrego Springs off Rockhouse Road. I might stay a few more days because it's really nice weather right now, and why the heck not.

      I went into Coyote Canyon today. All 3 water crossings are shallow, and they practically paved the part of the trail that kept people out. Never even locked the hubs. I came across a solo TJ, 3 YJ's and 3 Tacomas throughout the day. It's still green and beautiful, but with more people and a bunch more signs. Here are a few pics.

      We made it home Monday night. Of course, we wish we stayed down there.. The air is just horrible, we hit some wind in the Riverside/San Bernardino area.

      Brian, next time we stay longer and do coyote canyon with you.. Awesome pictures.

      Made it home a few hours ago. Got a few more pictures of Post Truckhaven. Went to Inspiration Point yesterday. It was one of the few areas I haven't been into before. Nothing too difficult, but scenic. Some sand dunes I didn't try since I was alone and the Explorer is like a beached whale in soft sand.

      This is on the only road into and out of Coyote Canyon. WTF State Parks???

      My RV was parked near the base of the hill in center of the picture.

      This marker is where the first group of people came through in 1775 to settle Alta, California. They used the pass through Coyote Canyon up to what is now Anza. When I was a kid, we did the trail several times. State Parks closed it several years ago because the off-roaders were bothering the wild horses, which they later removed. Road is still closed though... Looking straight ahead in the picture, you can see Coyote Canyon in the distance

      I noticed when I got back from my Wednesday solo run that my driver side front axle seal seems to be leaking. I must have nicked it when I changed out the axle shaft U-joints and it just now decided to start leaking. Dang, one of the most pain in the rear seals to replace.

      seeing how freaking close I was getting on the waterfall in that spot just makes it that much more aggravating! just needed a little bump to make it over that one lip that the rear tire was getting to but wouldn't go up. definitely trying this sucker again next time I'm out there

      Wow, they really did fill it all in? It was easy last time I did it, but it wasn't filled in with sand like that.
