I was in OC during the last storm but the desert didn't get much rain. Doesn't look like we're going to much if anything from the next one either:(

Its been raining here since about noon. Rained a bunch during the last storm. Flooded out the horse ranch, again. You gotta love a city that refuses to clean out a storm drain to protect a nesting habitat of a bird that may or may not be in that area. I sent them an email stating that since there was rushing water about two feet above the top of their culvert, I guarantee there are no birds living in there so now would be a good time to clean it out. Also reminded them that since this is a known issue as it happened before approximately five years ago, the city is responsible for any damages. They are now considering ways to clean it out without bothering the bird, who may or may not be in that area. Spent two days working on the horse trailer that had a high water mark 18" up the side.

Add Us as most likely. Chris and I are planning at this time to attend, that is if my Father-in-law remains stable.
I still have Fred's water bowl to return.:salute:

...I know I saw and read your post...:dunno:

..Not usually as most are fighting time and traffic but keep an eye on the thread and you might be able to head out with someone.. You might even invite someone else out and plan a caravan out too...:)

Well it certainly feels like winter out here in the desert. The Santa Rosa's (mtn's looking north from T-haven) are covered in snow...they occasionally just get a dusting. The San Jacinto mts. by Palm Springs are covered top to bottom.

Trying to get a deal together for some used tires. If all goes good I'll be there with the Ranger, otherwise I'll just come out with the DD and hang out.

I'm in for sure now. I will most likely drive out Saturday morning and I think I'm going to stay overnight this time.

Yes:), and so are the temps :eek:. Bring warm things AND whatever firewood you can. Christmas trees burn hot and fast but don't seem to last.
Looking forward to getting together.

What about just bringing the ZukMAM rig? The baby hummer? Is that still a thing?

Also, I have a transfer case sitting here I could let go cheap. Won't help for this trip but I could drag it out with me.. Its an e-shift 1354 from a first gen.

I knew I should have kept the old trans and t-case when I did the swap. Let them go for basically scrap price.

He actually has a manual t - case to put in it. Just no time to put it in.

I was leaning very much to going, but some things are happening at work that may make me have to stay home....in a good way.;)

Well the magic genie appeared and a t-case has appeared! Looks like the H3 is up on deck.
Mud is still under the knife getting new axles and other goodies.
