      JP is loaded on the trailer and firewood is in the bed, but I realized I forgot to fix something.:confused2:

      I have cracked front shock mounts that we welded last time or two at truckhaven with Rick's welder. I would just weld them before I go, but my welder is down because I have not fixed my 220 plug in the garage yet:banghead:

      I'm just going to take it easy, but I'll bring some scrap metal just in case we need to fix it.

      Who's staying through Sunday? My buddy Tim said he could make it out on Sunday if anyone is still at TH.
      I'm bringing my friend Jason (no vehicle) but he has to be back tomorrow afternoon. Soooo if people are still at TH, I'll drop Jason off and come back.

      Our plan today was to go to Font's point which is a lookout on the other side of S22. My power steering started to whine a short time after crossing S22. Turned out that one of my hoses to the hydraulic assist ram started leaking a steady stream of fluid.

      We found a hose repair shop in Indio, Desert Hose Supply, which built a new hose assembly for $32.00. They looked at the steel braided hose that came off it and couldn't believe it had lasted nearly 20 years without a problem. They said the hose I had was not rated for hydraulic pressure. The new hose is rated at 5000psi:chug:
