    Ya just gotta have faith Rick . . . well that and more friends apparently. So how about it . . . anyone out there want to help out Rick . . . even if you don't have a 4WD vehicle if you can get there you'll be able to get a ride from someone that does. . . .

    I just now (Noon) got a call that the Jeep is done. Assuming everything works as it should, and the Death Wobble is gone, I plan on attending. I'm not sure about bringing the camper as you are not supposed to tow anything until there are at least 500 miles on the new gears. I should know more this evening after a test drive.

    Just bring some spare parts like Hiram does and you should be all good to go.

    Default Hey Jake!

    Do you know if and when you are coming up? Just to keep you posted. I should be there around 5:30 Friday afternoon. Just so you don't think you'll be the only one there early.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    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:

    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.

    Death Wobble That is funny, well not really. Team Teebow 1's (TOM) truck had a bout of that Memorial Day Weekend. It is all fixed now. Pretty scary when you are traveling behind a Death Wobble vehicle. Not to mention Team Teebow 3 was driving the truck at the time. He has his permit. YIKES!!
    I said WHAT!!! You just took me the wrong way......

    Default Forecast

    Myself and 1manteam will not be headed your way if the forecast holds true, and they call for rain on Saturday. Too far to go and just get wet.
    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    I'm leaving Friday morning and going the round-about way to get there . . . depending on where I end up I may roll in sometime that evening and meet up with you guys (Aaron and Steph should be coming that evening as well) or I may find another campsite and meet up with you guys sometime the next morning.
