Then looked at my forlorn looking buggy and started thinking about doing a bit of fab work. Headed to the steel yard, got some material, plugged the grinder in and boy I am having fun and cutting. It's putting one of these on my face.
If you have the room, you could invert the ar.

The @ss end of my Jeep is taken care off. Looked at doing the inverted thing in the front. Not enough room, with some bending of the arms it might work in a conventional manner. Not in a hurry though, it's a future project to alleviate boredom

I'm driving through, and am thinking about playing till noon or so depending how miserable it is. I'm sure i'll be the only one dumb enough to be there so I may not be doing much of anything but I want to mess around on Choc. Thunder. After you make it up Choc. Thunder is there an easy way back around to the bottom???

Yes after you wrap around the big rock and go a little further you can take a left turn up to the top of the sand hill and then head down hill.
Getting around the big rock is gonna most likely give you trouble and peel some paint of the white ghost. It really lays you into the rock when you try to get around it. Anyway if you get stuck or break call me. I am 2 hours out though so figure atleast a 2.5 hour wait before I get there. Take a lot of water, just in case

Nate it's gonna be cooking



With no wind in the canyons and the heat reflecting of the desert floor you are in for some nice heat.
Not that it's much cooler here. Almost the same here, was just in the garage, did a quick U turn

Nice cooling trend.

I use to go out to Death Valley/Panamint Mountains with my family several times a year no matter what time of year it was. Talk about crazy.
