  1. Had a great time today on the Bulldog Canyon Trail with a great group of old and new friends!! We had 7 rigs total, and in attendance were G & Me. Lichen, gearhead, MzPriss & Cher's Dad (in Cher!), Klaykrusher, SonoranWanderer, and K2Man56. It's been a good 10 years since I've been out there, but Bulldog Canyon Trail is in better shape than I remember it. There used to be this one super puckery spot that was washed out, but it's got a nice trail repair now that's holding very well. The weather was perfect, and we found a nice shady place down in a wash for lunch. All in all a very fine day. Thanks everybody who came out to enjoy the great outdoors today!
  2. Everyone is off the trail, aired up and on the road. Had a great day thanks to a great group. Picture thread coming soon!
  3. Creampuff came home from Hunter Offroad last week. George is currently painting the rack and cage, and then he can start putting everything back together again.
  4. @shellback91 Oh too bad! I was looking forward to meeting you in person. Thanks for letting us know, feel better.
  5. @KC4X4 thank you for the heads up, I added Rubicon 18 to the attending list.
  6. Please accept my apology. I didn't see that you were on the stand-by list, or I would have moved you up to the 'attending' list by now. We were asked to take over the leadership of this trip, and when I didn't see anymore people on stand-by, I did start to decrease the rig limit every time somebody cancelled, because I feel that 15 is too large a group on that trail. I never would have left you out if I had seen your name, so again, I do apologize. May I add you to the attending list?
  7. Hey, welcome back you guys! That's a 'really nice' set up you've got. So glad you made your way down here, and really looking forward to see you out on the trail!!
  8. I did a product review for those for JPFreek Magazine. They actually work really well to avoid AZ pin striping, so I do recommend for anybody who wants to keep the paint shiny!
  9. Those poor people had no business out there. Thank goodness for the rescue guy!
  10. NASA's good at it; here's a shot of Mercury passing between Earth and the Sun yesterday:
  11. I used to go to the dealership when they were Ed Moses Dodge. We bought Marge there, and I used to take my first XJ in for service since I worked right around the block. They were a much nicer dealership than Airpark on so many levels!
  12. No pics either but it went over us one time when we were out on the El Camino del Diablo. We had some guys from the 4x4Ham with us and they were trying to contact it via HAM, but I can't quite remember whether they did or not. Tim's right; it went by really fast!
  13. I just wanted to say Happy Veterans Day, and thank you for your service, to all our veterans!!
  14. @SonoranWanderer and @K2man56moved up to the attending list.
  15. @Bradywgn71 G said he'd lead it; I'll update the 1st post.
  16. Poor Fred. Tim's right, here's an update from Fox News. *** UPDATE ON FRED from Low Cost Spay and Neuter **** - It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Fred passed away this morning around 4am. His starvation was so severe, his kidneys were not responding to treatment and he was unable to produce any urine. ASPCA starvation guidelines were followed, but his case was extremely severe with a low chance of survival. Based on his X-rays and boney remodeling of his hips joints, he was in his senior years.We were happy he was able to spend his last night in a warm place with loving arms. We have received enough donations throughout the night to cover his medical costs so thank you to all that donated. Thank you to all the rescuers for your hard work and dedication. *** Link to article: https://www.fox10phoenix.com/news/dog-dies-after-being-rescued-from-arizona-mine-shaft RIP Fred.
  17. This lucky dog survived his ordeal, and should serve as a reminder to all of us to use caution while exploring the desert. Open mine shafts are all over the place out here in Arizona, and have even been known to swallow a Jeep! Always stay aware of your surroundings. This story if from Mohave County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Unit (shared from facebook): Late Tuesday (11/5) morning, the Mohave County Sheriff's Office received a call from a geologist working in a remote area north of Lake Havasu City. He indicated he came across a dog that had fallen into a mine shaft, but he could not get to it. It was alive, but not moving. Search and Rescue and Animal Control Officers responded to the mine shaft. Our technical rope rescue team entered the shaft and was able to rescue the dog. Animal Control Officers did an initial assessment of the dog. He is an intact male, shepherd-mix, with dark brown and tan coloring and about 7 years old. He was scanned for a micro chip, but one could not be located. He has been admitted to Low Cost Spay and Neuter under the name of "Fred" for further care and is expected to make a full recovery at this time. Great job by everyone involved!!
  18. This reminds me of the time (on a different Jeep forum) that this guy said someone had stolen smiley rock. I thought it was hilarious - he obviously just missed it along the trail, as it is pretty easy to miss, and smiley rock is still there to this day.
  19. That super dark spot right there in Utah must be Canyonlands, or so. If I remember correctly, the Maze District is considered one of the most remote locations in the lower 48. Cool map K!
  20. It's official! Our TJ is named Creampuff; the only name that stuck. I knew it was a sealed deal when G started calling it Creampuff. It fits because it really is a "creampuff"of a car-deal find; super clean with only 55K miles. And it's such a badass on the rocks that the dichotomy is humorously obvious. I even changed the title of this thread. Thanks to @theksmith for the moniker!
  21. John is putting the final touches on the rack now. It looks amazing, can't wait to see it!
