Well it was the 50th anniversary of the Easter Jeep Safari this year. I hadn't been down for a few years so I figured I better make this one. Since fuel prices are down I prepped the 1-ton for the trip. Fabbed an onboard shower/water heater to the truck, filled the tires, hooked the Black car to the truck and the camper to the car and away we went.
The Red Rocks 4 Wheel club changed the registration from a paper mail in deal to online. The online thing said the Eagle didn't meet the minimum requirements for even the easiest of trails so we went renegade and wheeled alone. My buddy Tony and his family came over from Montrose Co. and wheeled with us Sat-Sun in his buggy.
We got some strange looks. Similar to what I imagine an interracial couple in the 50's would get.
We wheeled Poison Spider Mesa Sat and Fins-n-Things Sun.
Tony offered me some 31x10.50 IROCs so Mon we headed to Grand Junction to grab them. They will go on Braydens SX/4 when we build it.
Tuesday we did Hells Revenge with another friend who was a great customer when I had Evolution 4x4. He has since moved to Arkansas and goes to the safari every year. We got behind the Safari group.
Will continue later.....must go to work
