Thanks for a great day of wheeling probably one of the best days wheeling to date, the weather really made it extra cool Wish I didn't have to cut out early, next time I will not make any other plans.

Thanks guys!

Mike.

My drinking team has a wheeling problem.

They should leave it the fuck alone. I get pissed everytime I go up in the mountains and see all the effort put into closing and blocking OUR TRAILS.
The USFS is OUT OF CONTROL! You should see what they did to Cactus Flats. Absolutely outrageous what these guys can do. USFS needs to be put in check.

Yes sir. The large cabin people have been camping in it and burning parts of the cabin for firewood. So now they see it as a safety issue.....

0 rubbing on the front. But I got really tweaked out on a big rock where all my weight was on the right rear tire and it was touching the seam in the fenderwell. I'll need to add maybe 1/2 to 3/4" of bumpstop back there. Weird though, because WOODS has 35s on his JK with no extra bumpstops and he does not rub. Maybe my 35s are a hair taller...?

Nuther great run, with a great group.

After Tip Top, I headed out solo, to the hwy. I checked out the midget mine, which isn't very small. The gate to the mine was open and I got to check it out.

I got back on the trail and noticed that I had a flat. Plugged the tire and got home safely.

I don't get much in the way of pictures, but here's a cool frog vid:

Looks like a nice area you guys visited. I was under the impression that the desert would be nine million degrees, but a guy in my club was out at the Hammers this last weekend and said it was really horrible out there... the mercury topped 76!?! Holy shit... 76 at the Hammers in the summer? Wow, who would have guessed it was possible?

Love the new heep Mark. Good color and door number choice!

EDIT: Forgot to say that the track on that crane.... holy shit, OLD!!! Any idea of it's vintage?
