  1. I was looking over some historic TOPO maps and noticed an area marked ruins on a 1936 Camp Verde map. I noticed that they are near T Bar and Apache Maid cabins so I set out looking for them on Google earth. See red circle and arrow Here is a google earth image of the area I noticed this curved area of rock in the general area of the ruin, but that is all I can find. It doesn't look natural when compared to the surrounding area, but as a ruin it makes no sense either. Anyone here able to get a better read on the location from the Topo map?
  2. That's Ok Steve. I thought it was an ignition condenser. Didn't see the screws in the tire until I looked at it on the PC.
  3. I am selling 5 brand new Take off Tires and rims from our 2023 Jeep Wrangler Sport. The tires are Michelin 245/75/17 and are equivalent to a ~31 inch tire. The rims are what comes stock on a Wrangler Sport S TPMS sensors have been removed. I will include the lug nuts if the buyer is wants them. I'm asking $700 for all 5, but will sell to a club member for $600. (The tires retail for over $300 each new. ) Tires have less than 200 miles on them. Edit: Price drop
  4. 2 reasons for that, at least in my opinion. 1) More people are moving here all the time and they are looking for places to camp 2) Camping is more popular than ever. My nephew sells RV's in Yuma. He says that business is great, even in the summer, when places like Yuma usually slow down.
  5. Same thing happened up here near Sedona. FR 525 was very popular for dispersed camping. Forest service shut down dispersed camping and opened several (I forget how many) First come- camping areas.
  6. Yes, that's important to me. I'm actually blind in one eye and seeing over my shoulder is tough. We don;t want to fill that space unless there is no other option.
  7. Today, we did a dry run for our first camp trip in Bumble. Every thing fit inside, which was our goal when we bought a 4 door. I am still leaning towards a roof rack for firewood and possible recovery gear. If so, it will be a small one, half roof style.
  8. Looks good. I've been debating whether or not to keep my Hi-lift or let it go when I sell Barbie. In all the time since I started going off road, I used it once and the factory jack would have worked in that situation.
  9. Well, you can probably tell which one I'm a fan of.............
  10. Sounds like quite an adventure! You will have to try that again before monsoon season.
  11. Got the rocksliders installed today. I went with the LOD signature series sliders. Heavy as hell, but a pretty easy install. I had to grind one bolt hole a bit larger. We are ready to go offroading!!
  12. It's official now. Bumble has his Hood Sticker and some window stickers too. 😎
  13. @theksmith This thread is taking off. Maybe we need a subforum for wood working. You could call it.................2 x4 . 😁
  14. My FIL was a lifelong woodworker, and when he passed I got his entire inventory of tools. In addition to the usual saws and sanders, I have a full sized shaper and a Jointer that I haven't even tried to plug in. The shaper has large, exposed cutter that looks way to dangerous for someone w/o experience to use. Think of a router on steroids. I don't know how to use the jointer although I have watched plenty of YouTube videos on it. I keep telling myself that I need to try it. Right now, both are sitting in an unused corner of the barn. This is similar to the Shaper I have. (google image) The cutter heads look like this (about 3 inches in dia). Not getting my hands or finger near those!
  15. Part of the problem is that true Baltic birch plywood comes from Russia. The war is driving up the prices.
  16. Washed a bunch of Jeeps this week and decided that I should do a family photo shoot while all the Jeeps are still here. L-R 81 Wagoneer, 77 Cherokee " The Chief", 23 Wrangler "Bumble" and 97 TJ "Barbie" 😁
  17. I can attest to this! When I ran the trail, I had to keep stopping because the folks in front of me were taking pictures. Starting out again on that steep grade with a manual was challenging! The views were worth it though!
  18. We are sticking with the tent and cots. I'm a bit too tall to fit comfortably in the back of the jeep.
  19. Starting to do some mods to get Bumble Trail ready. Installed larger, wider off road tires today. Went from 31 to 33 inch. They sales guy at Discount tire talked me into wider rims and I am glad he did. These are about 1.5 inches wider and have a more positive offset, helping to visually fill wheel wells. Plus, I am VERY happy with how the new rims look. When we brought it home: New Tires and rims Installed Seat covers on the front seats. We always cover the seats in any vehicle we buy. This protects them from my butt sliding across the cushion on the way in and out. Removed the rear seats so we can maximize the room for camping gear. Lots of room back here! Next up, Rock sliders. We are leaning towards the LoD brand.
  20. I've always liked that the Kofas are so empty of people. I hardly ever see anyone else there. Except................ for hunting season. Place gets seriously busy then!
  21. If you haven't seen Grand Falls in the Navajo nation, you have missed a wonderful site. The Navajo nation has temporarily closed the falls to visitiors and it may remain that way. See article for info. https://gcmaz.com/kaff-news/kaff_news/grand-falls-closed-to-visitors-until-further-notice/?fbclid=IwAR3NcpbGTmiHljxS4OY4yrekHkWlLrl5imqaqw2nlKXoTsUogeMHfsG0meo
  22. Barbie had to sit out in the storm last night. Bumble is nice and dry. 😁 You may notice she is a bit too tall for the barn door. My morning view of Mingus Mtn, the Black hills and Jerome.
