not sure if we are aloud to post trip reports.

But id like to share beautiful alaska with you:


delete this thread if its against the rules, i dont see anything in there about it though.


Order may be messed up alittle but its good stuff to look at
So we went to Start our trip around 1:30-2.
My zj with the girlfriend, her brother, and I. Lars in his nice jeep on 35s snorkeled.

Played alittle before and after Jim's crossing. Easy to cross if you follow tree limbs marking way and ease into it.

Got to the woods

My jeep was getting 2-4 mpg for some reason. (im guessing the o2 censor being missing and the cold weather making it worse.) (you guys were right about the o2, i was wrong..) time for some exhaust.. its been long enough.. hoping nothing else is wrong.

we barally made it back, but decided we would go untill we ran out, and had talked to someone at the parking lot that could bring us 5 gallons so we were alright.

i filled up in eagle river and by the time we got to the glacier i had under 3/8ths tank.

We made the last 4-5 miles on 0 miles to E. and mirically made it back past jims creek to meet the wheeler with the gas.

Made a fire at the parking lot, and cooked some burgers, hotdogs, had a drink.

Put fire out, made it to palmer and got gas. made it to eagle river, took the Saab home!

Had a blast, finally touched the glacier, met some new people.

Looks wet and muddy to me. . .

Tech forum is not the place to post trip reports. Either the general forum or the regional forums.
