just driving it! Enjoying the nice weather and getting pumped for the Rubicon...I have decided to wait on painting the hood until after the summer. Brakes and steering are working fantastic...

I went camping this weekend and also volunteered to help take campers into Hawley Lake for their week at Camp Wampler http://rockonsteve.org/programs/ About a 12 mile drive in on mild forest service roads but the company was fantastic and the scenery is incredible.





Camped out Saturday night with some friends and took the long way home today.

No, I only help to transport campers in and out. Going back in a couple of weeks to pick campers/equipment up at the lake and bring them out.

Well done Mr. Vigo. Looks like you helped make some kids very happy! Great pictures and I'm sure you enjoyed every minute of it.

Jim,

I did enjoy all of it. But well done should be sent to all the counselors, organizers and Steve Wampler himself for making it happen...take a look at who Steve Wampler is:

he is, plain and simple, a stud...

Dang that's pretty! Makes me want to move! Looks like a lot of fun Mike. Tell the truth... did you hunt for any gold!?

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!
