It will have to be Sunday for me, but we can get an early start.

Working on maintenance... I re-torqued the year yoke nut with a healthy dose of red loctite and hope to not deal with that again. I also took off the front driveshaft just to make sure both of them didn't back off on me. The front was fine. Fixed a rear sway bar link that must have gotten into a rock and almost pushed itself out of it's bushing. Inspected the front end for anything out of the ordinary.... I had a new little faint click every now and then on the last wheeling trip that was pissing me off so I hope it becomes obvious or goes away. Also it looks like I somehow bent my R/F control arm enough to warrant a replacement. I don't know when it happened but their is some nice rash where it's bent. Oh well.... **** happens. It almost motivates me to just make my own arms, ditch the radius and weld up the 3 link brackets. Not a good time financially so I'll throw another single arm at it and have my fun until Spring. I WILL be starting to buy Duroflex joints next week though.... I should be able to pick up the 4 I need for the lowers, and I am really pumped to get them installed. My current R/C lower 1.25 joints are in desperate need of a cleaning and re-greasing and I don't want to do it!

I've got a couple more engine related thing to do also, new plugs and an oil change due to a mandatory smog requirement this time with my registration renewal that's due this month. BOO!

We didn't, screwed with that obstacle for over an hour and still no go. Bummer was like the last 300 feet of the trail. So we turned around and headed back down, which was interesting to say the least.

I have to admit I'll be intimidated by ANY trail that has your rig turn around. I'm very surprised that trail exists! How many have completed SOS?

Mainly buggies, like I said we were at the last 300 feet or so of the trail, could see the end. But then going back down had a cool pucker factor.

Here is a lil trail at the Buttes I want to see you go up, short, but a load of fun, nice steep climb over a bunch of marbles
