If early enough, I might be able to make it....but got a wedding to hit later that day (guess we'll just have to take the wife's XTerra to that).

There is also a trail clean-up at Miller that day, too.

What to do? What to do?

Saturday, July 18th. I think around 9am to meet at the trailhead would be fine with most. The most recent trip I went on up there we met at 7am. Way too early for me It'll take roughly 4 hrs to run the trail. The only problem is that I wasn't paying too much attention on the 2nd half of the run, so I'm not too confident in my leading ability.

Last time, I didn't air down or disconnect my front swaybar, so I lost a lot of traction and flex. There is a gas station with an air station about 20 min down the road from the finish of the trail for those of us without OBA. Swaybars are just a luxury I would recommend everyone airing down and disconnecting the swaybar just to make it easier.

As for the "modding party" question, yes they do happen every great while, when someone with lots of tools and space opens their garage for all to use. (Rikrotorhead cooks some mean burgers, and has a very nice garage for modding in ) Keep your ears open for the possiblity of another coming up....

Silverwood lake... My buddy and I will stay til early Monday morning. You're welcome to come up later.

Ok, since I have a few people who are going, is there anyone who knows the trail real well in case we get (directionally challenged)???

I've done the trail once on a motorcycle and I couldn't find my way to the lake. I'll try finding a map online.

This is the one that I found it's not the greatest but it does have waypoints marked so you can find your way with the GPS. I don't have a GPS however.

I have one, but it doesn't always cooperate. I will bring it anyway just in case!! I think the lake is the big thing with water on the back side? But, as for finding the trail to it....... read my signature!! See you all on Sat.

The only thing I know is ... I know nothing!!

Insert clever saying by someone well known here...

Oh yeah... I'll be monitoring CB Channel 3. My CB only goes about 1/2 mile tho, so hit me up once you're close to the offramp. See y'all there!!

*NOTE: I'm going to work for the next 3 days, so I won't be able to answer any questions. Please direct your questions to Tony (ductape1000) and he can call/text me if he doesn't know the answers.

I won't believe it until I'm invited to one, its like high school all over again

The only wrenching party thats going on is happening at the Jeep dealership in Irvine, I broke down and scheduled an appointment for them to take my money.

On a unrelated topic my plastic windows have seen better days, do you guys of any of the local boat / upholstery places that can replace just the clear plastic? Anyone have some nice looking windows they want to sell or trade for my sub par set plus cash?
