No air bags!
No wenches!
Ill bet they didn't even have stereos!
They probably slept on the ground under the stars.
Cooked over an open fire.
Drank whiskey from a bottle.

I guess we don't measure up these days.

I saw plenty of wenches in those Jeeps. No winches tho'.
I remember my dad's Jeep. No roll bar or seat belts. I'm surprised we were not killed in that thing. My sisters and I would ride in the back seat and bounce all over the place. Fun times.

The video is probably fake because I know you can't run the Rubicon with out a Rubicon or at minimum 3"s of lift, 33's, lockers and alloy shafts, not humanely possible


So I'm out in El Centro, what a mess, lots of damaged buildings, parked across from one on Main St. with the whole front of the building gone.

Coming across the I-8 past Jacumba it looks like a land/rock slide marathon all the way down to the desert. A lot of those big boulders are down on the side of the road

I'm wondering what Sandstone Canyon, Split Mountain,Canyon Sin Nombre and all that area looks like now

If anybody is looking for a nice tow rig/diesel truck, let me know.

A good friend/fellow Jeeper is selling his white 2wd F250 7.3L Powerstroke crew cab short bed with a nice shell. I'm not sure, but I *think* the milage is ~150K. I'm not sure what year it is, but I'm thinking it *might* be an 2001. Maintenance is impecable. It has a cab mounted CB, but I'm not sure if he's removing it or not. I drove this truck to Colorado & back a couple years ago with my trailer & Jeep in tow. It drives awesome. It's set-up with an automatic airbag system as well.

The truck is located in Tierra Santa.

Just a shell? Or is it a camper? Any idea how much?

It's a shell Jeff, not a camper. I don't recall which brand - but it's one of the more popular ones IIRC.

I'll call him & ask him what he's asking for it & I'll post back here.

He hasn't came to a firm price yet - he just now decided that he's putting it up for sale. He mentioned that he's basically going to ask close to whatever Blue Book is on it, and negotiate some from there, which is fair.

I was out in El Centro yesterday, interesting how normal things appear, at first glance.

Drove down Main St., just about every other window is broken, block walls are leaning or down, buildings with support beams holding up walls, telephone poles leaning over; Calexico is much, much worse. Most of the downtown businesses are closed.

They're saying that some of the schools may never re-open, hundreds of homes will have to be torn down, lots of road repairs including I-8. I stopped in to talk with David Wymore and they are re-building almost every water clarify in the area, water pumps, broken pipes and flanges. If nothing else there's lots of construction work out there

We were coming back west on the I-8 when a good size quake hit, the dust cloud all along the hills was pretty impressive.

Coming through the mountains by Campo and points east there's lots of obvious movement, the north side of the cinder cone hill past the check point has slid down, hundreds of those huge boulders are laying down by the highway, the balancing rock near Jacumba/Boulevard is no more, down the grade there's rocks all along the side of the freeway and that big hill near the train tracks and the old gas station west of Ocotillo has a huge sinkhole in it.

So next weekend at Supersition could be interesting. I'm hoping to make a trip up to Canyon Sin Nombre, the arroyos and Sandstone Canyon/Fish Creek/Split Mountain and see how things have faired there.

Makes me wonder if the rocks at blair valley campground fell down. We were camped in the same spot as when we went several years ago, right under the rocks.
