OK I know it's kinda late, but am going to try and get a Kabin and bring the J10. Will have my bro in law as well. If we could find a LONG trailer we would bring his 74 J20 as well. Will have to see. It's been a few years since we have been there. Was at 1st invasion, and I think about 4 years ago.

Anyway, have the J10 running now and registered :) so just need to get the cosmetics done, and the bumper and winch installed, and ......

You know it's a good morning when the gas gauge works for the whole drive.

I suspect that this year will be a dry one and we won't be able to have a camp fire.

Nice! Can never have too many J trucks. I think Matt was trying to see if he could get the gang to bring the most J trucks ever.

Well it did in this picture... Wyatt had to take it off on the drive home for overheating issues. Took him 4 hrs to get from Woodland Park to Conifer! Sad I couldn't be there for that adventure but he sure is a good friend for going down there for me and picking it up.

I don't think I've seen black and white in that pattern before. Most the other black and whites were in my rear view mirror. ;)

wildfire season

Postby fulsizjeep » Sat Jun 02, 2018 6:28 am

FYI - Yes, it is upon us. Currently there is a wildfire that has forced closure of US 550 near Hermosa. You can see Colorado road closures at COTRIP.ORG. Over 1100 acres burned as of last night. There is 30% chance of showers tonight and tomorrow but 30% doesn't mean that much here. I don't get excited until it hits 50%. 30% in Florida... yeah, it's gonna rain. I hope we get some decent monsoons by the middle of July.
