It looks like they are allowing campfires with permit same as last year.

We're going to run Swamp the same direction as last year right? I really don't feel like driving down Rooster Rock :(

Anyone know about fire restrictions up there??

Tahoe/Sierra has them in effect, so I'd assume it's the same down there.

I haven't decided what to do - I can't leave early on Friday, so it's a late arrival. I'll think on it this weekend, when I see what I get done around here.

I agree. Who was that that slid down it backwards with all four wheels spinning, trying to go up it??

Tom Come on down! We'd love to have ya. ;)

I just realized something, so don't expect me.

I forgot all about the clutch cable being bad, and I haven't done anything to fix it. I was planning on doing that when I did the engine swap.

Have fun guys!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, WHAT!!??
Now my Wife has decided she can't miss her class and isn't going with us, so it's just Sarah and me again. She is hoping I will change my mind and go camping at a local beach instead with my folks.

Just because it worked, does not mean I trust it...

For those wondering what's wrong with the zuk: The cable sheath blew apart on the Rubicon trip on the way out from Buck Island Lake. So I ducted taped the sheath back together, and then used zip ties to give some rigidity. It held fine, and appears to be still working.. I just don't know how much longer it will hold, and I still need to find another one (either dealer or vendor)

Im not so sure i understand the big issue? there were 14 dead zuks at the wrecking yard in pittsburg last weekend? get one for the zuk, and another for a spare? or is the cable non standard(custom)?

6 pages of advertising, and 3 truck willing to go. it looks like explorer wheeling in northern ca is dead. Swamp trail is hardcore, im not so sure its too bright to go with just 3 trucks. if something big breaks, none of us have onboard welders or winches. The trail is 14 miles of hard rock gardens. strapping a rig half that distance would destroy the tow vehicle and the rig being strapped. Just ask tom about golden spike trail in moab :roll: . just a thought.

I have a winch with 150' of cable, a snatch block, some "D" shackles, a tree strap, and a piece of chain........ :p ;) .
So, are we going, or not? We could just can this whole trip and head up to Big Bear. :( Its alot closer to home for two out of three of us for some light wheelin'

Besides, how many vehicles ran the Swamp last year? I think it was four, with only one winch in the group and no welder among us.
