  1. At some point I'd like to mount a GMRS antenna up front in the hood area for my handheld Wouxun. I just need to noodle through running the cable etc. and of course the finances.
  2. Those trails are not in my comfort zone financially or whatever other "illy" you can conjure up. I am kinda boring that way.
  3. I want one of those one of these days. The price and the power set up for it are what's in my way. Someday I'll get one.
  4. Fiona looked good, sounded good and did awesome on the trail! You guys did some great work on her and that's pretty damn cool in my humble opinion.
  5. Here are a few my wife took. Nothing, quite an accurate description. A gaggle of Jeeps and their humans. A view from the top.
  6. Home safe and sound. It was good to see everyone. Just like Ryan and D we ate too much of everything and it was glorious! Thanks to everyone who worked on this and to @theksmith for leading the run!
  7. I am also going to bring a variety pack of chips (Small Bags/Lunch Box Style) and I'll bring my spare tire trash bag to haul some trash out.
  8. Sounds good D. I am looking forward to Saturday. Haven't been out since October and this get together is always a good time!
  9. Wilderness first-aid sounds like something I'd like to learn too along with off-road recovery. I may add them to my "to learn" list.
  10. One of my goals this year is to wheel more and get more camping in. I am in a wanting to learn and grow mode lately. Here a few things on this list. I would like to learn more about route planning. This includes finding trails, finding camping spots and POI's on over-nighters or day runs that I lead. I will be picking people's brains a little more as part of this process. I need to up my camping organization game to be more efficient & comfortable. If I can do that it would make doing more multi-day overland runs in the future easier/plausible. Improve camp cooking. Improve reading trails and obstacles. Rig wise I am pretty happy with where Betty Lou is build wise for the upcoming year(s). She's due for some scheduled maintenance (Spark Plugs & PCV Valve) later this year. Other than that the plan is to keep up on regular maintenance and fix things as they come up. She may be due for ball joints this year too so I need to start planning that financially, this includes stocking up on generic Mac & Cheese. I may do some research into an external antenna set up for my handheld GMRS radio. It seems to work good as is so I am not in a rush yet but I do want to look into it at least.
  11. My wife suggested you guys set up a scavenger hunt type of thing for the girls with gifts that are wrapped differently, one for each girl. Give each of them a clue that has the color of the wrapping paper and general area they can find it. That may keep them entertained as well. Or maybe an Easter Egg hunt type of activity.
  12. Very nice. I'd like to know how these hold up for you and @theksmith after a few months of use. I have read a variety of things, some good and some bad. One thing I read was they throw the hood out of alignment. I am not sure how that's possible, but I am sure a determined person can make that happen.
