I was planning on it but my Jeep is DOA in the driveway waiting for this damn rain to quit so I can finish putting brakes on it. Got the fronts done but got rear tore down then ran out of time before I had to go to work and it hasnt stopped raining since...LOL On the plus side, I do have some more goodies that should be here by the weekend. Spare tire carrier, seat covers, hi-lift and mount, and a new steering stabilizer. I've also got new control arms sitting in the back of the Jeep waiting for better weather so I can get them on.

Go even if you can't bring your rig.

Yeah this rain has kinda sucked! Good luck with the projects
I can do that. I have to be to work at 8pm but I can hang out for a little bit. At least meet some local OB'ers. :smiley:
Awesome, Looking forward to meeting up!

Alright, I really want to get a core group built. Family oriented, reliable, capable rigs for a couple group trips a year. I’d like to start hitting the essentials. My son & I will more than likely be heading back to Moab for EJS. After that I want to get to Kansas Rocks & Colorado. I have a wife, 2 kids in tow, 5 & 11.

A lunch or some wheeling is good too. Fair warning - I've done the extreme rock crawling thing in the past and am going a bit more mild with the overland rig (aiming for good performance and economy while still being very off road capable) so I may be inclined to the 'chicken path' from time to time.

I live close to KRocks-- love that place-- Tuttle Creek (North of Manhattan ks) Is a great place too. If you ever decide on a meet at either of those 2 I'm in :-) I heard of an off road park north of Lincoln national forest in NE-- anyone know of it?

Halsey? I have drove by a million times. Never stopped to play. Took my truck to Tuttle once. It was fun but the trails get pretty tight in my full size. Fullerton was fun but again, tight in a full-size. I caved in both of my passenger doors there. I’ll ping you when I get the time to come check out Kansas Rocks, it will probably be soon.

Ha ha if you didn’t care for Tuttle you will not care for Krock It’s about as tight. but fun. My truck is down for a bit while I replace axles. But shouldn’t be too long before she’s back up and running

I'm with you on that. I prefer to minimize the chances of breaking stuff while out in the middle of nowhere. With that said though, the Rubicon Trail is on my bucket list just so i can say I did it, other than that, no hardcore rock crawling or anything for me. The wife prefers the scenic, smooth-ish rides too.

Hoping to get together with some of ya'll so I can put faces to names.
