Nice Trailer. You keep getting better with each film :D

I put together a camera mount for my Digital 8 so I can give you some stock to add to your footage.

Bill, I have a small coolant leak to fix tomorrow. It should only take a few mins to fix that. Then load the wood and camping gear (tent, pillow, sleeping bag, cooler, beer). But, yes I am serious about brining the cord or atleast most of it.

Well I have to work thursaday and friday :fire: So I want be out till friday night sometime. Probably around 8 pm or so.
That sucks Matt, but I'll be sure to get plenty of 'FROADIN' in during the day for you. I'll see if maybe I can even smash a door in... ;)

I'm so ready to try out the new L/S and wristed arm this weekend!

Brian (Gopher), You could ride out there and back with me if you want. While out there the front seat is saved for Mark but I'm sure someone else will have an open seat. Actually I have the whole back seat open while on the trails. If you do, I plan on leaving Friday no later than 10am and coming home sometime Sunday late afternoon or evening. Call me and let me know.

OH sorry, once the elevator/fire personnel are there do what they say.
You see the lift is in manual mode, meaning only the mechanic can move it from the top of the car or machine room. This is the reason for the slow creep speed and the jarring stop.
Elevators are mode to stop smoothly because it is comfortable for people. When the mechanic is riding the car it is made to stop STOP, not slow smoothly.
(less mechanics get hurt in the hoistway when you are riding on top of a slow moving lift). It's called "inspection speed".

Once they come and get you, don't worry about the elevator suddenly moving.
People get stuck in elevators every single day, we actually have it easy in the US with our safety codes and safety personnel.


Anyways you guys have a blast out there this weekend!
I will have to miss this run due to distance and timing, but I'll see you in Moab :)

I hope someone is bringing a box of various Ford tail lights on this run! You can make a small fortune just before the drive home :)

Hey guys, I'm going to join ya Saturday. I'll get there early 8'ish so I don’t miss the run. Unfortunately, I can only stay for the day. Don’t know what dish I'm bringing yet but, I'll bring a Christmas tree! & try to scrape up some wood too.

What CB channel will you all be on? If not, what channel will the handhelds (RF's) be on? Finally, anybody have GPS coordinates (Waypoints) for the campsite, or the trail head.

I'll be in a my Blue Ranger.

Don't feel bad Matt. I am in the same boat. My Friday lunch arrival is now late Friday night.

Not sure when I'll be out there, either tomorrow evening or early Saturday morning if I have to work tomorrow. And I still have to pick up my shortened driveshaft and install it...uugh.

P vibes,
My condolences on your loss...there will be other runs :thumbsup:

Kiadog,
glad your comin out, it'll be cool to see ya again.

Jason69,
Didn't we wheel with you a few yrs back at Los Coyotes, you were in a blue flareside Ranger?

jobunn,
bringing out your brothers? Those guys are a riot :p

Ok,
I plan to be out there Fri. late afternoon, hopefully sooner if I can get out of work earlier but i'm not counting on it. I'm gonna see if I can borrow a camera too since I'll be a passenger.

Tent Dwellers: I've got some 1/2" Insulfoam (laminated styrofoam) from one of the jobs I've been working at which will make for a nice mat underneath your sleeping bag. I only have a couple sheets which could be cut in half so first come first serve...hit me up at camp
See everybody there!

Well good news is I dont have to work tommorow but thta bad news is the truck isnt ready to do. Still need to finish trimming the fenders in the morning. Going to try and get everything else done tonight so as soon as I finish hacking the fenders I just need to load up and head out. Hoping to be there around noon tommorow. Maybe I can catch the afternoon run.
