Welp.. just wonderin' what everyone is plannin' on this weekend? By the looks of it the Cracks idea isn't going to go through... supposed to be wet up there!

Where is everyone wheelin? I was trying to decide whether or not to get out and wheel or hang out at home and work on the rig!

No wheelin for me this weekend. I've got some drainage issues to deal with in the backyard and Sunday is Daytona. I plan on going out next weekend for sure.

Busy Saturday, but we thought about running something scenic on Sunday due to the water problem we seem to be having. We will probably run 42. I have not been out there since the lake filled up and want to see it full of water. It has been a good 10-12 years since I have seen it full.

I tried callin 2ice, no luck, straight to voice mail and I didnt leave a stinkin message.

Oldschool and I are lookin fer a wheelin trip... :cool:
We will go ANYWHERE in the AZ area :D even the cracks. What the hell, both the Jeeps have winches and the Wifes would like to stay over-night, cuz you know, the holiday...

You do have first dibs on my trailer for this weekend, so lets do something.

Worst case, would be the White Tanks :rolleyes: ,I know "not again"..
But even worst than that would be TM, cuz the river crossing is :eek: no way.

Shoot me some Idears...

Brian... 42 doesn't sound that bad! I haven't been there in over a year! Is Jennifer goin with ya? I'll talk to Amber and see what she says.

Geno... Sorry bout the phone. I lost it like a week ago and I have not had time to go get a new one. So I left that one activated just for the voicemail. Next time just leave a message... I check them throughout the day.

Thanks for the offer on the trailer, but I think I will have to pass. That is unless I could hook the trailer up behind the Mighty Mitsu Lancer :D Just don't have access to a truck. Thanks again though!

Sunday sounds best for anything.. That way I can fix my junk on Sat. really quick.

Sorry guys on the Cracks. Its too wet up here. If the rain and stuff lets up. we'll have a cracks run in a week or so. It'll be camping in the cold or find a motel or a long drive home. We will keep the planning for under 5 to 7 days in advance so as to figure in the weather.

As for the Cracks.
Its not a matter of getting wetor muddy. We dont want to tear the trail up. When we wheel there the dirt part would get real rutted up if its wet. after a run when its dry the wind and rain wash the tire tracks out mostly except for the marks on the rock slabs and we want to keep the trail as clean as possible. In other words we dont want big ruts in it.

Be patient guys, it'll happen.

I thought you guys were doing the Tanks on Sunday. I was hoping to hitch a ride with Eric if the weather was good. :(

Brian, why don't you and Eric plan for something on Sunday? I know he was thinking about going to the Sportsman show tomorrow and running the rock pile. :D
