  1. She looks amazing! I saw your post on fb and considered doing one of Clifford, but he looks basically the same, so...
  2. We're working on putting together a weekend of trails up here for the ORP gang. But for sure, if you're going to be out here let us know!!
  3. Yesterday was a spectacular day of exploring coves along the eastern bank of Lake Mohave. @Number7 and I went out Cottonwood Road from Hwy. 93, and found a maze of trails that go down to the lake, all easy trails. We found tons of places to camp with access to water. We met a National Park Services employee who was out there, and she informed us that the lake is down for the winter, so the beaches that are visible now won't be this summer. We were right across from Nelson, NV Ghost Town and Cottonwood Cove Resort and Marina on the western bank. We saw a mom and her baby burro on the way back. Here's a link to the album: PICS 1st glimpse of water Along the lake My favorite pic of the day My favorite cove of the day But there's more Cottonwood Cove Marina We found another road that took us back to Cottonwood Road, making a giant loop Mom and baby
  4. DANG! I'm glad you're alright and your Jeep is mostly alright too! Unbelievable that car was going the wrong way. I would caption this pic 'I'd rather be a Jeep than a Mazda'.
  5. For Black Friday @Number7 and I ran the Chloride Mines trail near Chloride, AZ. This is the trail where the Painted rocks are located. We ran it west to east, the opposite of directions shown in Wells trail guide. It is a very scenic trail, with eastern and western views from the Cerbat Mountains. We could see all the way to Valle Vista from one vantage point. There are 2 campgrounds along the way, but neither of those will accommodate a very large group. They were kind of funky, you had to carry your stuff a long way to the table and fire ring. The trail itself is easy with a couple mildly moderate spots. It took us 2.5 hours including a quick (it was freezing!) lunch stop. Overlooking Chloride
  6. Happy Thanksgiving from us to you! Hope you're staying toasty today, we are. First fire in the new stove.
  7. Yesterday we went cove (s)hopping at Lake Mead again, and what looked promising on Google earth was just a disappointment . This one was weedy, mucky, buggy, and there were cows. It was a nice Jeep ride, but no place we're going back to any time soon.
  8. Yesterday we went to check out a local point of interest. Union Pass is at the summit on Highway 68 between Golden Valley and Bullhead City, AZ. There is an abandoned homestead and sections of the old Kingman Road pavement, dating to pre route 66 days. We found our way on trails from Golden Valley and stopped at the homestead, and then took the old pavement to the end and had lunch overlooking Union Pass. It's not a destination but a great little tourist stop if you happen to be going through.
  9. until
    Details and sign up to follow.
  10. @Number7 and I met up with @Ladybug yesterday to pre-run the holiday party trail and pinpoint the party spot. It was a gorgeous day weather-wise, and the area is very pretty. The trail is easy with a small side of short, mildly moderate, rocky patches.
  11. Sweet walk around vid @Bradywgn71 & @kaspily! Congrats!!
  12. More cove exploring today, this time we went to south cove. Hiked down to the water near a picnic area. Beautiful day!
  13. Since Rocktoberfest George has been rocking out the doors. Not Van Morrison, but he has been painting and hanging interior doors. We went with flat doors with no design stamp, flat, non wavy door trim, and plain hardware, to carry the simplistic theme. They came out awesome! Double doors into den/office and pantry door Bedroom and bathroom doors at end of hallway On a side note, we found these plants growing in our neighborhood that we thought might be some kind of wild chili pepper or some such. As it turns out, these 'chili peppers ' produce Cat Claws, AKA Devil's Claws. I've seen these in Tucson, on the Rug Road, and on the Devil's Hwy. Now I know where they come from!
  14. I agree with B. Your old rims and tires look a hellofalot better on his Jeep.
