So its been nice to have the cash flow. It's been a lot of work though between keeping my GPA up above 3.6 and work i dont have much free time.

Like this weekend i will be doing school all day tomorrow and sunday and wednesday I have a short day at work so i will be doing schooll all day wednesday too but whatev. only 4 weeks left then im done. No more school until like the fall of 2010 then im going to either chico or sac for some welding certs and then once i get those im off to wyotech or UTI to become an auto mechanic.

Its tough rite now for young people like us though i mean here in cali were up to a 20% jobless rate or atleast here in my county we are. And with so many people not having jobs no one wants to put young people to work ya know. They would rather give that position to someone that needs the money like a single mom or a guy trying to support his family but we'll get though eventually

yea it sux. i used to work for my neighbors alot, but now they dont have the money to pay me. I have applied at multiple stores, like safeway, and stuff like that, and its not that im a bad kid, but its the fact nobody is hiring. i remember only a few years ago i saw all the "now hiring" signs on the window, and i would tell my mom, ooo i want to work there, and there ,and there. now im lucky to get a part time job somewhere. I just got to hurry up and get my Eagle Scout (yea im in Boy scouts dont laugh, im not one of the nerdy ones). Because i know that REI pretty much wont turn down an Eagle Scouts application. so hopefully i can get a job here soon so we can go wheelin together. btw how old are you??? 16?

just run a chain thru the pipe that goes from frame rail to frame rail rite behind the front bumper area

just got back and thought id post some pic's . i took over 70 but ill pic a few!
this was a harder trail than i was expecting. i wouldnt atemp it without at least 33" tires . it was a assume trail, i want to go back. it was harder getting out than in, its up hill on the way out, and the ledges we droped of got hard when gravity was against us. the pics dont so it to be as hard as it was in some spots.
















the bad is i punctured a tire and its toast.

i didnt mention my experiment with stater fluid did i.

i really enjoyed today. only one guy ended up coming from ghp club, which i was surprised. 5 jeeps was a good number tho. it was almost 12 hours from when we left Georgetown until we got back.
it was 3 jf members ,a ghp member and 1 prospect. i was probably the west jeep on the pecking order,except for kevin , we are pretty much the same set up. i cant believe how easy you made the hard spots looked derrick.
