  1. Serendipity....this is what happened yesterday. I like to drop by the pavilions on late Saturday afternoon to see all the great cars and thought to stop out there and put a for sale sign on the YJ. Imagine my pleasure at seeing a whole bunch of jeeps and also an old friend, Kristoffer. This was an Offroad Passport gathering, a club I had joined in 2009 but allowed to drop into a state of disconnection some time later. What a treat to rekindle some older relationships and make some new ones. The club seems to have changed quite a bit and I hope to spend more time with the group later this year. The old YJ (thanks for the nice shot by the way) is still quite operational perhaps even more so than myself. Thanks to all for the cordial responses. I have shelved for now the “for sale sign” issue. I am looking forward to attending more functions. Cheers.
  2. Happy Birthday Diane. Hope you have many, many more.
  3. Well, as of this writing, the site is down...either for maintenance or a problem. Will try again in the morning.
  4. I am using exactly that setup, although my 4:1 t case is from Teralow, along with 4:10 gears. I have also found that 4 Low and second gear is a bit more useful than First gear. My engine is a 4.0L but George (Number 7) has a 4 cylinder (gear ratio unknown at this time) goes anywhere he wants. I like it a lot and wouldn't go back.
  5. I think the scenery here would be absolutely awesome.....if you could look at it....like away from the eight feet in front of your wheel. Intense.
  6. I know it is late, but if not too late, please sign me up for this trip. If signed up will meet at the Chevron as scheduled. Thanks.
  7. Boring trip report follows....no photos obtained. I think the Apache Trail is arguably one of the top three scenic trips in Arizona. Here is the aprs track http://aprs.fi/?call=KC9PKI-9&dt=1325116800&mt=roadmap&z=11&timerange=86400&_s=sd Interestingly enough, on this site we traveled on both the 29th and the 30th. Search KC9PKI-9, last 24hours and 2011, December. PM me with any questions re: this trip.
  8. Just a heads up. A local Bronco club is planning a run in the FJ area, the same trails mentioned in this thread for December 31. I don't know if this makes any difference at all.
  9. Yup, The whole road is graded. Truly a sedan could make the trip with care. I am sure you will recall the stone ledge that you drop over going south. That is all filled in. It had a bypass, but now is just filled in. Many "area closed" signs were in evidence also. The moguled hill just after the hill you are referencing was marked "closed" as was the really tall hill to the left (southbound) just alongside that hill. I repeat, the whole road is graded. I aired down to make the ride a bit better than just relying on the old leaf spring suspension, but was never in four wheel drive.
  10. Well we made the trip today through Bulldog Canyon from north to south on Forest Road 10. Previous posts on VJC had mentioned that the road has been graded completely. This is true and, without being derogatory, with care a sedan can now make the trip. We were only about an hour from end to end. The scenery, as usual, was great. Many areas of "play" space now are posted closed.
  11. These people would be the ones to ask about tire pressures and types in the snow? What do you think?
  12. This trip for me is weather dependent since it supposed to be more fun than tribulation. I am looking tentatively at this coming Friday, the 16th of December. I am not sure how many jeeps will make the trip and it might not be any more than two. Prior to going into this area you should look into the links I have posted below. This canyon is near Fountain Hills and we access it from entrance #1 via the Beeline and then the Bush highway. We would ordinarily leave Fountain Hills about 0900 and plan to come out in Apache Junction in the midafternoon depending upon stops for photo ops and the like. If your interest level stays up, go get the permit from the Mesa Ranger station and post up here. Take a look here: Mesa Ranger District 5140 E. Ingram St. Mesa, Arizona 85205 (480) 610-3300 and here: http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5182021.pdf
  13. GOOSE! Happy Birthday and more to come.
  14. I could see a Bulldog Canyon run Wednesday, Thursday or Friday this week. You will need a no cost permit, available in Mesa at the Tonto Ranger station on Ingram prior to the trip however. Nice, easy, scenic and easily doable in a stock jeep. Just post up and let me know.
