Renegord, Tanya and me hit some trails yesterday. It's great to have the 'Finder back on the trails after a couple month hiatus due broken IFS and no insurance. we got a few shots of American Creek. I'll be creating some stills from video we took and I might post a couple of clips too, so more to come! For those that read the "check out this wierd bug" thread, I did look for another so I could eat the damn thing but they were all hiding... cowards!

Check out the wild shapes and fissures in the rocks at the creek. It must have taken some pretty serious water flow to do that... and a hell of a long time!

hmm looks like were gonna have to come up again and run up american creek this time, and my jeeps got doors now that are like a tj/yj type of door, which i mean, easy to remove when we get to the trails, instead of shitting bricks on the road from your house haha

Thanks Ash! It would be great to have you guys out again... there's a few others interested too. I think I'll try to set something up for mid - late Sept. Spare rooms are available again for anyone who wants to crash, or you can pitch a tent down by the river. Let's do a big BBQ the night before the run! Cop activity is always less up here after labour day, doors help too!

Ps. Nice avatar!

Ya, should be a good one. I'll start organizing it ASAP to give evryone as much notice as possible. I have all-natural mosquito repellant that my friend Tanya makes from essential oils... it works great and there'll be lots on hand!

Zibi, glad to hear your rig's coming along! I hope you and Jeenyus can make it!

Hey man, I forgot your name. I'm glad you posted! You seem like a really good shit, it would be great to hook up again! The crazy thing is, my steering felt fine when I hit pavement and my T-case shifter stopped moving around like mad under power too! I think I may have to re-name my 'Finder "Herbie" due to it's seemingly spontaneous regeneration!
