Sounds good but I was busy running 8 trails (all in one day) by Big Bear as part of the adopt-a-trail program. It was definitely a long day, starting off with John Bull (East) and getting down into the desert and back up again by the time it got dark AND COLD!

Killer waves? Surf? Whenever I think about surfing all I can think about is my favorite movie Apocalypse Now, lines from which were quoted above.

Well then... You could have made it to our run --- it was at night time when we had all the fun anyways...

Maybe next time Jerry.

I finally found one at Scotty's for $25 which included a sealed beam headlight (now I have three of those as spares since I no longer use sealed beam headlights), and I got it just in time too. Sheesh, if you ever order anything from Scotty's, make sure you follow up to make sure they actually shipped it when they promised to. They "forgot" to ship it on Friday when they said they would so they had to ship it via overnight on Wednesday to get it to me on time. Thanks for asking about it Steve.

The night run to Bronco Peak? Surely you jest, the only stories I hear about night runs at Bronco Peak end up as horror stories where people almost froze to death spending all night there while waiting for parts to be brought up to them.

It wasn't THAT cold, although it was dark. And amazingly enough we had the right spare part on hand.

Ask Joe Dillard about his pitman arm and setting a record for swapping said pitman arm on Bronco Peak last night.

Of all the Jeeps out last night, the most built one

Before:


After:

But it did look like the pitman arm was cracked before and just gave way.

It must of been that JV run...Or Colorado.... OR that run Joe was on in some other part of the world (his world tour)..

It was a fun trail fix though.

I think that someone needs to keep a pitman arm puller in their Jeep toolbox.

Wow, someone actually had a spare pitman arm? I woulda never thought about carrying one, that is for sure. And that's a pretty unusual break... at least I've never seen one break like that. Joe, were you beating on your poor old YJ again?

It was kind of a late night. I found this picture of Eric enjoying an after run nap.

That's what I though. I would have put a spare pitman up there with a spare hood as things to carry.

Who needs JV when you can break your jeep 10 miles from home.
