I might be able to make it. If any of you San Diego guys want to get some wood I have almost 2 cords of wood that needs to be burned. It is all split and ready to go. Only thing is that is very messy and I wouldnt recomend putting it in the back of the explorer as it will make a huge mess.

IT would probably add a good 3 plus hours to your trip. I am right by qualcomm stadium. It is a solid 2 hour drive out to truckhaven from here. Probably only worth it if someone is pretty close. It burn hot and super fast as well so if would make for some short fires if that is all that was there.

Rock Ranger, I have been looking for a nice early 90's 4X4 Ranger for you. If I impound the right one, I'll let you know. You can buy it at the lean sale for cheap. ;)

Bad news

Well, unfortunately, I am not going to make it. Had a major :roll: and the Ex is :thumbdwn:
Check the whoops section later tonight for a list of damage and pics. Just to give you an idea though, 30ft down a cliff off a fire road is where I ended up on my roof. Myself and the two kids in the vehicle walked away with minor scrathes and bruises.

Anyone got a 1st gen for sale cheap, I know I need a new body and frame.

Sorry to hear about the RollOver Diff, but you are the Leader of the Posse. I guess you are up for a major rebuild. Glad to hear you are all okay, cause you can always get a new X.

If everyone brings firewood we should be fine. I can bring some large pieces of wood, and some leftovers from our Shaver trip (I kept all the wood someone, I think it was Positive Vibes, left).

Lets just say that the white door is no longer the major flaw in my paint scheme.

Sorry to here about this Kevin.

I'll still be waiting with the bender to cage the next one up (next time, should I just bring it up to you, since it's portable?)

We'll see. I have only been allowed to buy another Ex by the wife if the first thing I do to it is putt in a roll cage, with the proper seats and 4 or 5 point seatbelts. In other words, before I can transfer any parts from the old one, it has to have a roll cage with safer seats and harnesses.
