I’m canceled.
A deluxe cabin became available yesterday, I don’t know which one.
These new owners are terribly disorganized.

Well that's a bummer Tad. It's best you take care of yourself though. Perhaps I see you at, or before TITD.

Thank Mike, TITD for sure.
I have upgrades going on for Pushmobile so I don’t think I’m wheeling this summer.
Definitely will be in Las Cruces this October again.

Wheeling in the summer and Arizona don't mix. It's f'ing hot out there. I'll be interested to see the upgrades. The pushmobile looked pretty complete last time I saw it so I don't know what more you can do to it. Perhaps a large display screen in the dash or some really cool 'racing' stickers. ;)

Front axle got locked with chromo shafts and Yukon hubs.
Front suspension has been rebuilt (bent more stuff in ‘Cruces last October.
Rear suspension is next, the 63’s are wavy noodles now.
Going to need a new windshield soon but I will wait until it fails and finish the interior cage then.

Thanks heimeken for the update. I called them right before the 30 day cancellation requirement and they told me they were not doing it this year. I had received an email indicating full payment was required.

Are you showing up this year?

BTW - The Jellybeans (FJ Summit) cancelled this year. https://www.fjsummit.org/ And have dates set for next year: July 21-25 so we might want to avoid that week again.

Yeah, but we know in advance which is nice. So I guess we'll probably do the 14th to the 16th next year.

I am happy you guys will be joining again. Sign up for early bird breakfast if you are going to get an early bird. :)

The FJ's are there the 21st to the 25th so I am thinking we will probably go the week earlier.

I cancelled mine on Friday. They moved my deposit to next year. I did bump the dates up a week so hopefully we as a group do that. If not, I will call in a couple of months, soon as the new date is confirmed.

Have a good time this year. Will be there next year and the J10 works AWESOME with the F.I. instead of carb. So no vapor lock!

The weather in Ouray might be kinda miserable this year. Looks like in town it's going to mid to upper 80's for the week.

Colorado weather has been miserable anyway. Hot, dry, and windy.
1977 Cherokee S, Ford 5.0, 5 speed, BW 1356, 33 x 10.50 BFG's. No longer my DD.
2007 Mercury Milan, 2.3L, 5-speed, now my DD. 29 mpg average.

We were closer to 120 than 110 today. I'll take somewhere in the 80's over that any day. It will be nice at night and to too bad in the shade.
