We went to AAOA today, all we did was drive in circles and go though deep mud puddles and knock over tree's wasn't much fun.
Rausch should be much better.

BroncoJoe96 I had a few deals just come up that I couldn't pass over, so my Round Up fund went to those. With much regret, I won't be making it this year.

I am wheeling Thursday and Friday. I street cruise Saturday as a compromise with my wife and kids - yes, I will be wheeling with 5 people on board! They love it, but they also like to cruise with the EBís.

silent one I've never really checked, just tell myself around 10, I make it there on about 3/4 of a tank and that's doing 75-80 most of the way.

Tie rod is in, gear is packed, probably missing something, but hope I don't have to touch any of it.

Just have to go shopping tomorrow and pack cloths and head out Wednesday.

I would have like to see what your mileage would have been.

I am at about 8.5mpg.

Its 100% up to you guys cuz youre the ones driving, but if its a street cruise, im most likely out.
Baring unforeseen circumstances, I'm wheeling Saturday, so nothing to worry about there. What anyone else is doing is up to them.

Tie rod showed up, and putting it in right after work. Other than that and packing out my bronco tomorrow and shopping for food, I think i'm ready. Have to clean the 79 RC Bronco to.

reptillikus But if you get that done today, thatll leave a whole day where youre not wrenching! You need another project to get done before the Round Up

So what all is left to get done before you load up and head out?


I run this drill every year - I never get my list completely done.

Just need to put the tank back in and connect the lines.

'89Bronco302 So Iím having some major steering issues with the tow rig. Doubt Iíll have time to fix it before and doubt Iíll find something else to tow the trailer with. Ainít gonna stop me, Iím just going to drive the bronco all the way up. It doesnít see as much street time these days but it did back before I bought a trailer.

The weather forecast for this area is insane. In the last 24 hours we went from 0% chance of rain all the way up to 95% and then back down to 47%. Guess what? Its not raining Barely a cloud in the sky. Theyve also changed what days its going to rain, from what they said yesterday. So i wouldnt get too worried about the weather, cuz they obviously have no idea. My guess? That storm front out west is gonna cause some good rain here, but not til next week.


Most likely the trail ride for the JK event is already mapped out, and would be pretty easy to avoid. Depends on the vehicles going out, sometimes they take the jeep events over to the NE side and you never see them, so you wont know for sure unless you ask the park staff. Honestly, id expect that, esp since there will be an event on the comp course; that would get most of the jeep crowd away from the comp course & its spectators for the whole day.
