Were in at Ray & Carol's!

Rick,

We signed up quite a while ago, but reserved our room at Ray & Carol's Last week! They still had rooms when we talked to them, so If anybody's interested. Ray & Sandy L ? Brett G? $42 a nite...can't beat that!

Are we going to have a prerun?, also Brian K. we'd like to do some of those other trails we discussed,
like Grapevine Canyon!

I'd also be willing to lead another Pinyon Moun tain Run if we get some interest!:p

Ray,
I'd probably be interested in a Pinyon Mtn run. That's the canyon that dumps you out into fish creek and you have to go through the squeeze and down that crazy drop isn't it? It's been a while.

Brian,

I may be up for a day run. I havn't had a chance to wheel the explorer and am looking for an excuse. Post an update when you're going out.

Pinyon Mtn.

Sirhk 100,

That's the one! Hope to have about 7-10 runners!

Mac (Diff Whack)... was that for Pinyon, or just the whole T-Haven Experience? Either way, good to have you back!!!

ALL OR NOTHING

Pinyon is always a great run. As long as I take it easy in the washes I should be able to stay out of trouble. I think I have learned my lessons though about playing arround.

A liitle bit of all

If your asking about the pic in my profile, I ame out of that just fine. On the first run down Pinyon Mountain I hit the front diff doing about 35 to 40 in a sand wash causing major dammage, but still drivable. After the second run, where the pic came from, I rolled it in a sand wash trying to do a donut after to many beers.

Diff Whack Daddy's signature is a pic of him descending "Heart Attack Hill", one of the obstacles on ther Pinyon Mountain Run. Oh yeah, He survived Heart Attack Hill just fine, but a little later..... well, he'll have to tell you.

Ray, I still have my old automatic locking hubs for you, one with the broken plastic piece, one complete. Should make good spares.

As for Grapevine Canyon, its pretty tame, but real scenic. I would be happy to meet up for a day run next month if we can set it up. It ends up at the Borrego Badlands, near the squeeze.

Hubs

Hey Brian, Thanks for the thought, I really appreciate it, but.... Got a brand new set of Warn Manual Hubs, along with new wheel bearings and new Slotted Rotors. I'm going to install them all b4 Truckhaven... just been trying to get as much out of the rotors and pads that are on there as I can.

I'll have to get back to you on next Month-Grapevine. Things are pretty crazy at work! Don't really havef a schedule anymore.

Brian,

I noticed you're a CHP and live in Escondido. If you see a lifted Red Explorer doing 65, don't worry I can't go any faster and those wobbles are normal cause my caster is way out. I got pulled over last weekend and the CHP officer thought I was drinking cause my Ex. wobbles/rocks back and forth like a boat. I got a kick out of it and thought it was kinda funny.

Anyways, are you guys noticing any different trends in crime or anything since Tuesday?

My Wife and I were thinking of camping. Who all is camping out of the 20 participants who have signed up?
Is camping recomended? We are pretty rugged folks but I dont want to be the only couple.

Due to the lack of lodging close to T-haven the majority of the group has camped in the past. Most either tent it or sleep in their trucks Char and I have a camper as does Paul Bredehoft. Only a few have stayed in the hotels.
