We had fun out at Ocotilllo Wells over the weekend. The wind was blowing pretty hard on Saturday but let up in the afternoon. Both night's campfires were calm weather. I got pretty toasted on Saturday but I didn't fall in the fire pit.
We followed Pole Line to the wash, then all the way down to Superstition.
My Jeep blew out the rear shocks on Saturday morning so the rear was bouncing all over the place. I had to drive pretty slow the rest of the weekend. No other issues with my Jeep. I don't think Chris had any real issues with his either. His sand rail started blowing oil so it sat most of the weekend. The kids rode the quads all weekend with no issues.
No flat tires on any of the rigs to or from. I got free electricity (the Obama plan) from Chris' generator most of the weekend. I haven't used my motor home since TDS two years ago, and my generator runs for about fifteen minutes then shuts itself off. I'm dropping it off at the service place tomorrow. Need that generator working well. What if there was a zombie apocalypse or something?
We had a great time out there. I was trying to find the smoothest path along a wash and got on top of a sand berm and slid sideways into the wash wall. I was running 32 pounds in my tires so it didn't handle the sand well. Had to air down to get off the sand berm.
Chris was goofing around going at a wall trying to climb it, hit his front spring knda' hard and inverted his shackle. Just hit the gas and the spring went back into place. It was an ugly looking wound tho'.
I've got some work to do on my Jeep before next trip out.
Here's Chris' battle scar.... I think he has a pic of me up against the wash wall.
