He's lucky we weren't going faster than walking speed, or my rear might have rolled right over his hood, haha! So I'm wondering, I have locking hubs up front, anything I should check out? I've already told my insurance company that I don't THINK there is any damage to my jeep, but I told them I would take a closer look in the morning. The other guys lexus (or whatever it was), man he's probably going to need a a new front "bumper", maybe a fender, and maybe the radiator. Something was hissing, but no fluid, maybe it was just the overflow reservoir. Scared the mess out of me, I've never had someone just turn right into me, gotta love my TJ though, not a scratch :-)
Damn Daniel, glad to hear your ok and it sounds like your Jeep took it good.

That's what I figured as well. The beadlock rings on my wheels are full of rock rash, I can't imagine this little fender bender doing anything worse.

With a report in with your insurance company, if you should find something wrong even a week or so down the road you should be covered. Drive it for the next few days and do a good inspection.

8 hours of running old forgotten roads through the desert.. Seen a lot of neat old stuff and found a lot of old un broken beer, and whiskey bottles and cans. One beer can that dates back to the early 30's, looks a lot like a brake fluid can. Next time I think I'll go out I-40 past Ludlow and prospect around in he hills on the North side. Always wanted to check that area out. I know there's got to be some mines there with dumps that haven't been picked through.

Yeah I found two whiskey bottles, both with caps on them. One brown glass and another clear, one says Seagrams and Sons from Canada. People always tossed there empty beer and whiskey bottle out before pulling into towns. Along the old roads all you have to do is look for them. I found a beer bottle like that little round one that has a stubby neck also. Rare finding them that aren't broken. Gonna start collecting old coke bottle bottoms. The old ones had where they were bottled embossed on the bottom. Today we found one from Wichita and one from San Bernardino. They use to bottle in just about every city. I think it would be cool to cut the bottoms off flush and either frame them in and stick some LED lights behind them or try to make a lampshade out of the bottoms. The old coke bottles were real think, almost a 1/4" thick and the bottles were kinda green glass.

Today we revisited a old rock shack that we had checked out when we went to Calico. The reason we went back was because there were two old seats there my buddy wanted for his 53 jeep. They need to be recovered but they're kinda cool. While there I found a old diner chair on one side of a building and the post mounts on the other side of the building. I didn't take the two prices but I may go back and get them? The top seat will need to be recovered but it would be a cool piece to have, probably from the 50's?

Under this old rock house there's a huge basement. We chickened out and didn't enter it because we seen a bunch of snake skins on the floor of it. I bet there's some neat old stuff down there. Lol

I don't really collect them, but I love finding old bottles. I've thought about collecting them, and possibly re-using them if I ever start aging whiskey, or brewing beer. Would be nice to have that stuff in some vintage bottles

I just like going out in the desert and prospecting around, it's neat to find old stuff. I even replant stuff for those who'll do it years from now. I'll leave coins on rocks, and under rocks in the middle of nowhere, old hot wheels, an old boot here and there. Old work boots turn green and make a cartoonish shape after aging in the desert. When I find them ill bring them home and give them to friends. ill get a picture of one and show you what I mean.

That puppy got a home today. This guy saw her poster in weinerscnitzle(spelling?) and came to look at her. He was nice so he took her. He was kind of a typical Phelan person I'd say. Said he had 80 acres out by el mirage. My girlfriend is a good judge of character so I feel better about her being gone. Turns out I was much more attached to her then I thought. Wish I could've kept her or one of you guys could've taken her. Worst and maybe best part about finding dogs homes is that you'll never know what happened to them or how they are doing. I still wish people would keep in contact. Oh well.
