  1. Awesome tires on rocks and streets wet or dry. Great choice, and I think they're going to look bada$$. (Gosh tires went up fast! We got a set of KO2's earlier this summer for ~$250 ea.)
  2. The Bullhead 4 Wheelers have an annual event coming up in Parker. George and I have never been, but we know that these trails are rated difficult.

  3. Happy Birthday WJChris!!! XOXO! ~D
  4. The reason I haven't said anything all week is because I didn't want to jinx us. I'm thinking of changing his name to ClifFord because, duh! Here is a ClifFord update: Sunday: @Number7 G was able to catch up with @stockjeep when we got home from the Gala. He was so kind as to press these axle bearings for us even though he was getting ready to leave for Sand Hollow the next day. Wayne!! Monday: G got it all back together & filled it up. Drove around Valle Vista Tuesday: Axle appeared to be fine. We drove ClifFord to Kingman and back for food. Wednesday: We could see a small speck of oil on the retainer plate on 1 side, most likely residual from the install. G washed everything so we can keep an eye on it. Thursday (today): No leak detected! I/we think we're a done deal!!
  5. I should have this made into a t-shirt

Meet-up: 9:30 AM at Nothing, AZ (an hour north-west of Wickenburg). Map link here...

We'll run the trail to visit some mining ruins and then head back out closer to Nothing for the actual party. We should be airing up back at Nothing by mid-afternoon.

  8. I started a picture thread and did a little wrap up of the winners and such. If anyone wants to share the photos you took please do it in this thread: September 2022 ORP Annual Gala Pictures Thread Thanks!
  9. The 13th Annual ORP event at Dogtown Lake (near Williams, AZ) was a huge success! We filled the group site there nearly to capacity, and it was a little 'cozy' but everybody seemed to be pretty comfortable. The two major complications were the abundance of mosquitoes, and the amazing downpour Saturday afternoon. Other than that everybody seemed to have a great time! I was so immersed in the experience that I forgot to take pictures, so I borrowed the ones below from Ann Marie aka @Riddler. Please post your pics in this thread to share with the group!! We want to thank all twenty-nine of you who came out to the event - you're why this group is so awesome! Special thanks to Ann Marie aka @Riddlerfor organizing the salsa contest! Special thanks also to Michelle aka @Yodamom for help with the 50/50 Raffle and T-shirt sales. There is no way I could do everything, so I really appreciate it! Salsa & Dip Contest 2022 We had a fine selection of salsas and dips to sample at the contest this year. They were all so delicious it was seriously difficult to decide which one was best. I had to go back and fill my plate 3 times! Congrats to both winners of the Salsa/Dip Contest who each won a new design OPR T-shirt. The Dip Contest winner this year was Andrea aka @andimac, winning with an amazing smoked cheese dip. The Salsa Contest winner this year was Doyle aka @Riddler with a tomato based salsa. Although he says he changes it up every year, he now reigns as king of the salsas for several years running!! Here he is sporting last year's contest prize: OOFD - ORP Overland Field Day Saturday morning @4x4tographer lead a trail ride enjoyed by many of the campers! They got back at about noon and everybody at lunch in their individual camps. And then, about the time we were going to start the inaugural OOFD games, we had an utter downpour! By the time it passed enough for folks to move around without getting wet it was too late for the games. 50/50 Raffle This year's 50/50 Raffle netted $142.00 to the club, and $142.00 to winners @Bradywgn71! Congrats guys! And thanks everyone who participated! ORP Trail Leader Appreciation Awards At the awards/announcements ceremony we gave away several of these badges as a way for us founders to say 'Thank You' to these members who generously and regularly lead trails and contribute to the function of the club. We are super appreciative of all your contributions here @4x4tographer, @gearhead, @shellback91, @WILL E, @SonoranWanderer, @Ladybug!! If you weren't able to attend the gala, your badge will be in the mail to you soon! (FYI no I didn't grow my nails out green, that's the person who made the badges manicure! ) Go ahead and post your pics!!
  10. Home safe and sound after a fuuuuunnnn weekend! Sorry about the rain and the mosquitos, I didn't know about that part when I booked it. I had a lump on my forehead when I got up this morning and I thought I must have bumped my head, but wrong; it's a cluster of mosquito bites. Like a little mosquito buffet line on my face. Updates about winners, etc. later!!
  11. We got new spacer rings from Teraflex, g cut the old bearings off, put the rings on, put the new bearings on, and now we're just waiting to find a press we can use.
  12. The campground managing company called me with some important information, so I made a couple updates to the 1st post: Campground amenities include vault toilets, water and garbage bins. (Original post stated flush toilets) FYI the spigots in the campground don't work right now, but there is a large tank of water where you can fill up a container to use in camp. Firewood is available for sale at the camp host. Proceeds benefit Dogtown Lake, a non-profit.
  13. Ryan @4x4tographer has graciously volunteered to lead the trail ride Saturday morning at the gala. All you need to do is just show up at 9AM ready to roll! Here's his agenda: Meet up/line-up at 9am and air down Aim to depart by 9:15ish Goal is to be back to camp by lunchtime Trail rating is easy - any high clearance, 4x4 should find it easy Short 31 mile loop on primarily gravel forest service and fire roads Primary point of interest is the summit of Bill Williams Mountain where we're have endless view from over 9,000 ft On our way back to camp we'll do a brief jaunt on some unmaintained dirt roads (up FR14 and FR48) We'll hit Bill Williams first, if we spend too much time up there enjoying the sites, we'll just head back to camp the way we came on the main roads.

  14. I think that's the point. He needs more money because of the Jeep.
