Looked thru my stuff and I have a new complete set. I'm think of coming up tomorrow. Does someone have space for the Eagle to park and I'll just crash out in it?

Nope, smooth sailing. On the downside, my dad started vapor locking just climbing out of Denver, so he's going back to get his tundra. I promised him we'll get it fuel injected by next year.

That kinda sucks but we all kinda expect it with our FSJs.

I'm pondering bringing my Howell Fi kit to sell. It's a "universal" V8 that came off a Dodge 360 powered rock buggy. Would need a chip, O2 sensor N bung, fuel pump too I think?but that should be about it. Probably would be good to have Bill build a dizzy and burn the chip.

What trails are being run tomorrow? I'm planning on leaving early in the morning and heading that way.

What is this "planning" you're talking about?

Check out my gear ratio calculator

If you can't fix it with a hammer or duct tape you have an electrical problem.

It's usually poor planning but that's how I roll. May have a friend from Montrose meet me and ride along.

There is room in the campfire site as long as you've got a small tent.
Now this ol' Jeep needs a coat a' paint
But she makes up for what I ain't

I'm "planning" to take at least Wyatt down Blackbear tommorow. Hopefully leave fairly early, take a trail to Silverton and go see the Mayflower mill. Come back to the KOA and cook some food. And then go on a night run if the weather cooperates.

I'll be rolling Friday. Hopefully leave fairly early. Gonna try and drag my feet some leaving Saturday evening. Wish I could stay longer but at least I'll make it... If Walter behaves.

Jeep didn't even make it an hour out of town. Started surging and fuel cutting out. Had to turn back.

We will show up this afternoon in the Element. At least we will have air conditioning... But no low range :(

That sucks man...When was the last time you cleaned your fuel tank? Could it be clogging the prefilter? Have you cut open an old filter to see what it looked like?

Don't worry, doubt I was the only one to see your eagle! I saw you at least 4 times!
