This is probably the best picture taken in the area. Nice color balance. The only thing that would have made this better is if my big Charlie Brown head wasn't in the picture.

Last picture for now. My Jeep can easily handle inclines like that. There's Mrs. StupidBunny trying to hold back the awesome. Disregard the tilted horizon and mountain. There is no camera trickery here.

She looked at that, but there aren't any positions available there that compare to her current position. She just got another huge raise and bonus. If not for the medical bills, we'd be doing well financially. Now is not a good time to switch jobs anyway. These days, she's lucky to have a fulltime job on the Strip.

That was our second trip to that mine. We climbed it the first time and didn't notice the trail. We drove it up the last time, but it still only got us about halfway up. You are right that it's difficult to see. Even when you first turn onto it, it's hard to tell if it's actually a trail.

We went into every adit from top to bottom. It's always fun to explore, but we were disappointed that there wasn't much in the upper areas. All of them were just ore chutes to the lower levels. There were 4 main shafts up there. Each trickled down into the 2 main lower levels.

I've got a dark red JK, but if I would've seen your wife I would've yelled "Hey MRS Stupid Bunny!"

I hope to see them on a future episode of 1,000 Ways To Die.
I shouldn't have said "like." It's amazing that people would think it a good idea to blast away at something that might just be the only thing keeping the roof over their own heads.

I'm down for Saturday after thanksgiving trail. Work fri, but off sat-mon. Davidsonlaw- idiots don't think, let alone think about the consequences. The difference between stupidity and ignorance!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Step 4. Strap the bytches to your radiator hose and drive.
I bought a snowmobile a few years ago, it had a "muffpot" a small metal container that clamps to the exhaust. maybe you can fit one on your jeep.

I looked at the picture before reading your post and couldn't figure out what part of the Jeep that was. What an odd name.

There are now microwaves that plug into the cig lighters. They sell for around $200. Would be nice to be able to heat up a quick meal on the trail.

Or this works. Mmmmm...smores.
