So alternator issues aside, It was a nice weekend. I went camping, fishing, met a few new FSJ people, said hi to everybody at the trail head, then went home.

Jeep ran flawlessly up into the mountains and over all the passes (regardless of the busted bracket).

Great trip. Good people and good times. I had some issues but they are more or less fixing some mistakes I made in the suspension swap. no big except two new shocks will have to wait for funds from some fictitious, nonexistent FSJ donor. Sonora pass is a killer of all vehicles. I'll post some pics for all that are interested.

So where do we want to go next? I know we just had a day out, but I'm already looking forward to another!

Not that I don't like road trips but maybe somewhere closer to Reno?

Are there any longer trails than Geiger toll road that head up to Virginia city or any cool places like that?

I second the Dr. I would be more apt to go on a ride with a few less miles........

With or without me and my Jeep, the offer to provide a semi-difficult wheeling loop and overnight camp out up on my property near Pyramid Lake is still there. For years the men in my family would go up on the 30th and spend the night. For the last 17 years it has snowed there on Halloween Day!
Maybe a spring trip is in order?

While not next I would like to run some of the Plumas NF back county discovery trail (http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5428383.pdf) next summer after the snow melts.

I would be down for something near Reno after the new year.

Pyramid Lake sounds like an awesome idea in the spring.

We could do signal peak in cisco grove up off highway 80 its closer to Reno than the last two trips, and if you really want to mash up your rig you can do the Fordyce creek trail but being high elevation it would have to be before the snow starts or after it melts.

Unless you are rocking 37's, stay far away from Fordyce i an FSJ ;)

All forest roads close Dec 15 regardless of snow depth except the designated winter roads. Won't reopen until June once snow is gone and roads are dry enough. So any planning will have to keep that in mind. I'd say we are in but I'll wait till last minute so I don't curse myself again. No problem making a run to Reno area. We have some grand nieces to see any way.
Dr. M may have to bust out a map book and start following roads. My friends that hunt that area only know of your basic desert roads that wander all over the place.

I'd be game for a wrench day if somebody needs one.
