Me thinks a number of JF members think about VACJ7 more than he knows.

That supports my theory about why places like Texas and Louisiana can support such high prices for vintage Jeeps: there just aren't many of them here, probably because they weren't needed so much for practical off-road use.

Went on a nice day hike today. Started at Maroon Lake and made the hike up to Crater Lake. Not a very difficult hike but was fun. 4.2 miles round trip and it only goes up 600 feet to and elevation of 10350 feet.

Its the first real hike the kiddos have been on and I must say they all champed. I knew Gabby would do fine, but I was a little worried about Liam. I was Gabby's age (7) the first time I made this hike and Liam is only 4. He is a rock star. Took up 2 hours up and 2 down. We ate lunch at Crater and spend around 30 min up there. Rained on and off a little.

The only real disappointment was that my mom only made it about 1/2 before deciding she could go no further. She and my dad turned back. I think this might have been her last hike. I noticed she struggled last year on our little hikes. I guess older age has caught up.

Picking up our rental jeeps tomorrow morning and heading to Leadville to ride over Mosquito Pass.

No jeep of the day today. Didn't see anything special.

Wow, MoC... pretty sobering thinking of the "last hike", but I doubt I could do that myself. When you look at your pics of you and the kids it gives perfect definition to "carrying on a generation". Teaching/showing your kids the values you share, the experiences of a lifetime... something that they, too, God willing the country is still free at that time, will pass on to THEIR kids, all because your parents shared it with you. Tradition, Brother... a powerful thing. Makes me smile "watching" you share with your family. There is NOTHING more rewarding than that.

^^What Scott said^^

MoC, you've got it all, my friend. All the beautiful pictures make me feel like I've gone on a trip there!

Wouldn't you like to own the only home on that lake, and wake up to that view every day? No landscaping necessary!!

Thanks for sharing.

My parents are both in their 70's so we figured it was coming. Thanks for the kind words Scott, and you are 100% correct about values and tradition. I hope I can visit here with my kids kids.

Another great day high on the mountain..

Picked up our rental jeeps at 7:30 this AM. We got 2 2013's 2 doors JK Rubicons and headed out to Leadville to drive Mosquito Pass. First time I have driven this pass and it was WONDERFUL. Its pretty high at 13,185. Leadville is over 10,000 so we were pretty close to being above the tree line from the get go. The wild flowers were in full bloom.





Ride was nice and rockey and the switch backs were nice and tight.















Hit the top of the pass and did lunch.
]





Had a guy in a nice looking JK come up behind us with a guy in a ATV. When he went to start nothing. Relays started clicking, no lights, no horn. Looks like the alternator went and the battery died. His friend went down for cables, I told him they needed a battery to get down so they could check the alternator but they thought better. Hope they made it...



Headed down the pass in to Alma. On the way down found the North London mine and a little further down the mill. The signs said it was the first mine in Colorado to use a over head tram to bring the ore down to the mill.













Was a long trip but well worth it. We did around 200 miles round trip.

I have been laughing about it all day!! I am SO GLAD you finally said something! I am laughing about it right now. One of my all time favorite scenes, and one of the best two word lines in cinematic history. Hysterical.
