I am waiting for the part for my truck to get the 4WD shifter linkage fixed. So that and the leaf spring should be fixed by then. I just hope the clutch holds out. i will not have time to get that fixed.

OK, so I haven't been able to help you out much in terms of coming along as the Jeep Recovery vehicle and I do have plans this weekend . . . but if it helps I'll be there in spirit . . . of course being there in spirit doesn't really cut it when you're mired in the mud, stuck in the sand or the Jeep needs a jump start, huh? ;) :D Shoot me some ideas at some point for possible give-aways . . . I'm thinking one f those throw-away cell phones, flare gun, cold weather survival suit, etc. . . . of course these prizes will only go out to Jeep owners . . . well Jeep owners and Magellan users. ;) :D

lol, why does that all sound like stuff you can take from the fire station... :rolleyes:

i was thinkin stuff along those lines (off road/adventure oriented) maybe get tow straps (for being towed) for non jeep owners and pull straps (for pulling) for the jeep owners... :rolleyes: awww jeeze... why don't ya just get AAA memberships... lol, I haven't looked into it yet, but I was thinking one of those jump start emergency kits, that has the battery booster and roadside emergency stuff in it, I think I saw them at cabelas a few months back for pretty cheap. Map & Compass would be good for the magellan users (but they would have to come with very detailed instructions...) :D

It gives me an idea for a new cache event!! it could be along the lines of geocaching/giving practice to search & rescue crews, it can be called, "The Magellan/Jeep-a-thon" get lost, get stuck, and get rescued! the Magellan/Jeep-a-thon; Where you are the cache... :D :D :D

Been looking forward to this one coming up. Missed it last year due to moving. Question on your definition of off-road capable? Are we talking functioning 4x4 with tires that are not bald? Or are we talking 6 inch body lifts, woolly boogers and a snorkel?

If I promise to bring home-brew to the camping portion of the event can I attend even though I drive a Mercury AND use a Magellan? :D

4x4 with good tires, that has some clearance, we won't be doing anything that requires winching (hopefully) or turning on the bilge pump (hopefully) Take a look at some of the pics on this site and on the old event page (my avatar is a pic that was taken from the last event, the second day of the trip was the best wheeling)

homebrew is always good :D but the campground is a very laid back quiet place that we don't want to tick off... :rolleyes: (or as FFJ puts it, to be "CFH/Campers from Hell" so we'd like to keep all that to a responsible minimum)

But all are welcome to show up for the event, even if ya don't have a 4x4, I'm sure somone will have an open seat.

We'd love to have you come out . . . and in answer to your question it would be Selection A on the Happy Meal Menu . . . a 4WD vehicle should be more than adequate . . . assuming we did the same type of stuff we did last year in terms of terrain . . . no snorkels, Detroit lockers, 33 inch tires, etc. should be needed . . . but if anyone shows up with something like this we would all be suitably impressed. ;)

Oh yeah, I should add that I too am a Magellan user . . . I just have to get my digs in before anyone else can . . . not that it stops anyone else though. :rolleyes: :D

Do you suppose they would miss the stuff . . . I mean it's not like we need the cold weather suit in the summer, right? ;) :D

OK, those are some good ideas . . . in the next couple of weeks I'll take spin out to VIP or some other suitable place and see what I can pick up for some give-aways.

Just to echo this here . . . I should have space for 1-3 other people if anyone would like to come, but doesn't want to drive or doesn't have a suitable vehicle for off-road.

Also, Hiram . . . just to be clear . . . you did say there were ATV trails near or running past the campground???

I suppose that would have been helpful information to give you huh? I'll be making this trip alone. The better half already has plans for that weekend.

I'll bring my kayak along too. Since my wife won't be joining me, that means I'll have an extra kayak available if someone needs a loner for the day.

The 4x4 can fit three other adults reasonably comfortably if there is a need. Of course this all assumes my magellan can get me to the campsite in the first place.

Well only a few more days to O-day . . . any geocachers planning to go that haven't logged on to indicate this . . . right now the group seems kind of small (not that it's a bad thing). I'm going up on Friday to do some caching, but if anyone needs a ride on Saturday I'll have room.

Incidentally Hiram I probably won't bring my trailer or ATV since to be honest I don't feel like hauling around a trailer. I'm also planning on heading up on Friday . . . although I may tent out at another place depending on where I am when it starts to get dark. I'll be bringing some additional give-aways and wood for the campfire . . . I cut down some more trees today (dead ones . . . but don't worry I'm not bringing all of the wood that I cut up today to the event.) I also stopped by this evening to see you guys and take you out for ice cream, but no one was home (insert joke here_____.)

So anyways, what time are we meeting on Saturday morning. I mean there's a place with the posted coords for the event, but no time . . . also are you planning on doing that thing that you said you were thinking about doing (hint: the log book deal.)

Ha ha--spare we have, though an unexpected bout of death wobble may require a spare pair of skivvies.

For the uninitiated, death Wobble (DW) can affect any solid axle, coil sprung vehicle. Here is a video of an early Bronco experiencing DW:
http://www.emotoman.com/videos/dw.mpg

Any looseness/wear in front end components can cause this, as can a bad alignment. In my case, all the front end parts are new, but the alignment (caster and toe) were WAY off, allowing the vibrations to start after hitting a small bump at around 45 MPH or so.

Well it looks like I have the weekend off from work. The only issue I have is that I will not be able to leave from here until late in the afternoon to head out if I can swing coming. I am working on the details with Mike right now. I am not going to hold Mike up waiting for me.

I do have some questions though for those of you heading up Friday afternoon since we will not longer be able to communicate on this web site with you after tomorrow. What are you plans for Saturday afternoon? If I am able to come and I do show up late I don't want to arrive at the campground and have no one be there.

Also I would like to hear from every one else leaving Saturday that is heading up and get a feeling of what time everyone is leaving Saturday and what time you are planning on arriving?

Well it looks like I have the weekend off from work. The only issue I have is that I will not be able to leave from here until late in the afternoon to head out if I can swing coming. I am working on the details with Mike right now. I am not going to hold Mike up waiting for me.

I do have some questions though for those of you heading up Friday afternoon since we will not longer be able to communicate on this web site with you after tomorrow. What are you plans for Saturday afternoon? If I am able to come and I do show up late I don't want to arrive at the campground and have no one be there.

Also I would like to hear from every one else leaving Saturday that is heading up and get a feeling of what time everyone is leaving Saturday and what time you are planning on arriving?


Rick, I am planning on leaving in the am and will get there when I get there when I get there. But then that assumes that I can get my van in all the way. Let me know if you need a ride. Give me a call

Thanks for the offer Rob, but it looks like I am going to have to bail on this one. The earliest I can leave my house would be 1 pm and that would put me there about 5 pm. That is really to later to bother, plus with the rain coming it does not sound promising. Thanks for the offer.

Yeah, that rain was horrible:rolleyes: ...it got so bad we decided to give up and just jump in the lake a couple of times!!:cool: Doggies went swimming too.:p

It was a great weekend! So glad people could make it and/or not chicken out...it really paid off didn't it!! :D

A bit of a side track, Steph - I was so excited last week when up north - I saw a campe sign "Medawisla" and I smiled because I knew what it meant. Had it not been for your choice of screen names, I would not have had a clue!

I'm still drying out my camping gear from this past weekend and my 4Runner smells like wet dogs (no offense to the dogs who came). Oh well, there's always hope for next year . . . maybe we'll get better weather then.

Incidentally, has anyone heard from Hiram . . . he hasn't posted in awhile. You didn't bury him somewhere did you Medawisla.

What happens at TL07 stays at TL07. And leave magumbofoofoo:D out of the Hiram not posting issue. The less he posts the more he'll want to talk to her. And we know that would be sad.:rolleyes: :p
