Looks like we'll be there. That area is pretty nice in terms of trail access/scenery. Should be a fun weekend.

I got Friday-Sat penciled in.

There's a couple that has been traveling the world since 2000 in their mitsu 4x4 delica that will be there for story telling.

Their blog:
https://viajeros4x4x4.wordpress.com/

One of them authored "around the world in 10 years".

Should be interesting.

It's also the last weekend of Oktoberfest too.

Anyone game for Friday morning caravan from OC?

See you guys this weekend. Looking forward to it.

We should be showing up around noon on Friday - hopefully with something new on our SMB.

We had a great time!

Here is a little footage from the White Mountain Loop run (Moderate Group) there was a go around - but that would be fun now would it.

Another great trip! We had a nice day on the trails complete with a mountain top BBQ and a view. A few quick shots of our adventure...I am sure Brent has some great ones.

Great to meet new faces and see some old ones. Jacko won himself an official SMB Drink Koozie for taking his rig on a trail run with us...well done.

Yes but we allowed him to keep his bra on for his first run. :a1:

Looks like a great time. Wish I could have made it but I got to have fun moving a bike shop! Hmmm let me rethink this one

Pretty sure Ramsey did his run in 2hi the entire time and just throttled thru everything.

I had to use 4lo, winch and a hi-jack just to pull off the campground parking lot. The bra did help too.

Had a great time! Thanks to all the folks who shared their food, drink, knowledge and know-how.

And a special to Ramsey for conducting major surgery on my vehicle while on the trail!

Thanks for the great pix and leading the charge for a nice run to the peak Brent. Bbq up top was killer too.

Has anyone ever told you that you look more like a Brett than a Brent?

Great weekend! Nice meeting y'all. It was cool seeing everyone's vans....gave me lots of good ideas for future changes to ours.

BajaSMB.....thanks for the lift info. We'll have to head down and see you soon.

Well, it turns out the Great Pumpkin couldn't make it up a hill, and that's when Ramsey took a look at the front end and determined one of the hubs wasn't engaging. So, with some basic tools, (and the group waiting) he disassembled the automatic hub, only to discover it was useless. The thing hadn't been exercised properly and was now only adding more weight to SM. I continued on the trail in 2.25 wheel drive. Someone has video of the Power Wagon pulling it up a nasty hill.

THEN, after the ride and we were air-ing up, someone noticed my sway bar had relocated itself into my spring! Ramsey was there again to assist in getting it unjammed / removed. (Cool! more weight gone!)

Gonna go with Warn Premier manual hubs next.

We saw a few people because we only came up for the day. Worked both days before and after.
Great to meet a few new people and say hi to others.

Unfortunately we drove the 1998 Landcruiser and not the van... :d7:

You can read my writeup with TONS of pics at the link above. Had a great time and loved the huge van turnout. Was soooooo missing my van at this event!!! Best part is always catching up with and meeting such great people that share common passions. Hopefully see many of you on the road again soon! Missed you Gooseberry.
