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.

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...
