First run - local group

Tonights pics are the preparation of taking off the doors, removing the windows, adding mirrors. Tomorrow night should have some actual trail pics even if it is a shake down run to get a feel for the new ride and to have lunch in Virginia City. Hey Pa, I'm just going to go get the mail.






I liked this idea so much I went out and got a cheap set of mirrors. I will improve upon the mount some with some more rigid material for the arm. But it should work good enough for the federalies up in VC.




This won't really be my first off-roading with the Jeep but it will be my first time I actually did a run with anyone else. They did some work over the winter and are looking for a fairly easy run to shake the bugs out. I will use it to test the sidehilling and get used to some more trail characteristics that I wouldn't test out alone.

Again tomorrow night I'll post up some actual trail shots.

Trail leaves 7-11 in Washoe at 10am.

Looked at the pictures on Reno4x4. Looks like fun! Can't wait to get past the 600 mile mark on the jeep that way I can get out there with you guys. The car is in my name, but since my parents were kind enough to get it for me I thought it would be nice if I agreed to their one rule (no wheeling before 600 miles). After that .

Dennis, Thanks for posting those. I have been busy, playing with the video. So here is my rookies attempts.

Ok I am new at this video stuff but here is two. The first one is 135mb! But has some of VC in it. The second is just the wheeling part and is 26mb. I'm sure I'll be able to figure this out better later and make smaller file sizes. The first big file will be start to download then go make some popcorn and pour yourself a soda.

135mb Big Jumbo avi file
26mb Lite Jumbo (mpg)

Let me know if this works and how you like them!
