Anybody who wants to meet here first, is more than welcome. I'll probably fire-up my BIG party size coffee pot ~7:00am since it takes ~25-30 minutes to brew. I'll have my regular coffee maker set too. I'm sure I'll be up extra early, so if anybody stops by ~7:00am or later, that's fine.

We can chew the fat, have some coffee & donuts, then take off NLT ~8:30am, maybe a bit earlier, I'm not sure yet.

BTW: I stopped by the college again today & spoke with the security folks. They said that since it's Spring Break, we can expect to park wherever we wish close to the Student Center. I prefer lot #2 since it's the closest.

If anybody needs my address or phone number, just PM me.

Are we allowed to repair non-Jeeps at our Jeep repair parties???

I have to replace the rear axle on the ford ranger (not capitalized for respect of Jeeps). The one that is on currently has a bent axle shaft and it starting to feel like death wobble in the back of the truck @ 63 mph.

I am planning on getting another axle from either the junkyard or off Craigslist tomorrow (Saturday).

I think there should be an exception made for you.

Seriously, I don't see why not.

Is the rear axle an 8.8? If so, I have swapped the axle shafts in 8.8's a number of times. Pretty easy job.

Are you thinking about swapping the entire axle, or just the bent shaft & maybe the outer seal?

The Ranger 4-cyl has a 7.5 drum brake axle, the 6-cyl had an 8.8. Good thing is it's a direct swap for the 7.5 from another Ranger, Aerostar or Bronco II with rear discs on some (the Explorer takes more work).

The swap is one of those easy vs. cost vs. benefits things. Can potentially get a whole axle for ~$50 along with a gear change from 3:73 to 4:10 (with LS) at the same time to help the four ford chipmunks squeal over a hill

San Diego Town Hall meeting with Congressman Duncan Hunter & Calif BLM Mike Pool
Several folks from this thread/BB attended. I appreciate the strong support of JF!!!!

This is a cut/paste I typed & posted on a couple BB's:

This morning I attended the above town hall meeting. This meeting was scheduled so that discussions could be expressed to Congressman Duncan Hunter & California State Director of BLM, Mike Pool. The focus on the agenda was to openly talk with these officials concerning San Diego's off road issues/concerns. However, these officials were expecting that there would be mention of Johnson Valley OHV & the Marine Corps potential expansion of its Twentynine Palms facility. There were several people who addressed these officials with JV concerns that were outside the initial meetings agenda.

Not to take away from San Diego's important items of discussion, but some of us were in a unique position to have the ear of some favorable officials and we didn't want to let this opportunity pass us up. Being this was the case, and they were open to hear our concerns, the Congressman wants to formulate a hopeful resolution concerning the potential takeover of Johnson Valley/Hammers by the Marine Corps.

This is only my opinion, but it seemed that if he (Mr. Hunter) had it his way - JV OHV would remain as it is today & that the Marine Corps would look into other options.

California State Director of BLM, Mr. Mike Pool, mentioned that the Marine Corps was not initially aware of the great importance that Johnson Valley OHV has to the off road community. However, the Marine Corps has recently been informed of this great importance.

Mr. Hunter was very supportive of the off road community and mentioned that he will be meeting with the Marine Corp Commandant to discuss this issue. Furthermore, he mentioned that Congressman Jerry Lewis will be part of this ongoing issue since the land JV is on, is in Mr. Lewis' district.

During this meeting I addressed the officials and provided a copy of a Petition concerning JV. This petition was started by Tam, and she deserves high recognition for taking the initiative to start this and follow thru. Over the course of approximately two days, this petition generated ~1,000 signatures, of which, several of them contain valuable comments that these officials will take into consideration during their decision making process.

Another item that was discussed is that there will be an organized guided tour of Johnson Valley for some of the officials. Who all attends, has not been determined, but you can expect that we want this to happen soon and to provide the Congressmen a better perspective of The Hammers and it's great importance to the off road community.

Another item we will be providing to Congressman Hunters staff (specifically, Mr. Michael Harrison) is some photos of JV showing it's unique terrain and some specific map locations of the photos we provide. Basically, what areas these photos were taken and how they make JV such a valued place for us. The gears are already turning to provide this information to the Congressmans staff.

There are other issues that arose, and I don't want to discount other concerns that were discussed. If I've made some minor errors - feel free to correct me.

Thanks to Joe for bring the meeting to light at JF.

A good meeting, people came, quit literally, from all over SoCal and quite a few drove several hours to attend the meeting. There were many concerns raised over land use in mainly the desert regions, i.e. Glamis, Ocotillo and so on. Congressman Hunter was more than receptive and both he and Mike Pool took many suggestions to heart and have scheduled future meetings with some of the groups represented, SD Coalition, Cal4WD, CORVA race sponsors and organizers and so on and is planning future meetings with Congressman Lewis and Congresswoman Bono over off-road land use issues in their districts and a possibility of a meeting(s) with all at one time in the future.

I spoke with Mr. Pool after the meeting and talked about some local issues, mainly the continued closing at Otay Mt and areas along the I-8 corridor. I will be speaking with him and the San Diego Border patrol District Chief about these issues at a later date. Made the discovery that the area in question has already had a study done and approved to open that area specifically to off-highway vehicle use including the existing roads, trails, campgrounds and facilities but in the bureaucracy of the government after 9/11 it fell by the way side. It's back on the table now and Mr. Pool has assured me that he will follow up on this.

Also spoke with Congressman Hunter after the meeting, make no mistake, he is a big supporter of off-roading, I am meeting with his assistant within the next two weeks to follow up on some local issues (I bribed him with Joe's donuts and a t-shirt, it worked).

Finally Jerry Bransford should get a huge thanks. There was a lot of discussion about Johnson Valley in addition to all of the other issues raised but it was Jerry who really boiled the discussion down, and brought to light, the unique singular nature of JV and the importance of the area to off-roading not only in, and it's connection to all off-roading in, SoCal but literally, around the world. Jerry invited Mr. Hunter to visit JV on a Jeep trip, he didn't seem too thrilled about it but he is going to at least tour the area with the Twenty Nine Palms Base Commander. He did however offer to have his son ride-along on the trials at JV, a good choice as he is currently pursuing his own political career. Jerry will be contacting Mr. Hunter's office to setup that meeting and run and I have no doubt that run will do more for OHV land issues than any sit-down meeting.

A very interesting point that Mr. Pool raised was that in all of the directives, laws and Acts that govern the BLM and land usage, conservation, cultural preservation, energy sources and so on, there was no legislation specifically addressing BLM land use for off-highway vehicle activity. Mr. Hunter likes the idea, or as he said, let's not have the off-road people become an endangered species
