Happy Friday. A little how to on cleaning synthetic winch line. At least, how we do it.
We headed down to Tucson and Brent’s house to see what projects we could get done. Spoiler alert, we got the Subtank partially done and I cut/rewelded my 4x4Labs Bumper Jerry Can holder to better fit the cans.
We headed in the 109f heat to Tucson to pickup our leg of a cross country FJ40 baton relay and do some mountain biking. Riveting stuff here folks, RIVETING!! (Oh yah, I am bad with money... so I bought a drone...)
Part 4 encompasses 2 days as we head from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, through Flagstaff, AZ and on to camp in Sedona and then over Broken Arrow trail and home. Also, I can’t describe how exciting it was to receive our first Patron this morning. Kevin, you know who you are. $1 never seemed so hard earned. I’ve…
A little video of me blabbing about things stuff.
As you can tell, I’m a fan of these.
My buddy Dennis just completed a lifelong bucket list item. About a half our ago. He always talked about riding Route 66 with his dad, but they waited a bit too long so Dennis took his pops in ash form and spread him along the way.
North Rim trip report. As you know we’re a work in progress on videos, but let me know what you think.
Got to go beach camping on a lake I haven’t been on in 20 or so years. Photo dump!
Good morning, it was pretty cool considering we knew it would be in the triple digits later. I knew we wanted to make tracks to higher ground ASAP.
Traverse the Arizona Strip Trip Expedition Year 2017... (You gotta have a catchy name, right? right.... guys.... where ya going)
Edit to add this glorious video.
We’re headed out to the North Rim to hit up some “favorite” spots and a few new ones if all goes well. Hope you are able to go outside to somewhere to feel “independent.”
Had a blur of a weekend running out to California to help my brother run a 20,000 person motorcycle show. It’s nuts every year and as busy as it is, NOT riding a motorcycle out was the best choice I mad. It was showing 117F well into the night as we drove. So, below are some vids of the weekend.
I want to eat pancakes and jump into a lake from the kitchen! So we did.
Waking up near Bearwallow mountain we decided to see how “closed” the road through Mogollon was. It was the Sunday before a holiday so we had our fingers crossed it was a rest day for the road crews and that there was some sort of passable track.
We woke up fairly early and headed down from the mountains and back into the high desert. It was warmer down here, but still so nice compared to home. First order of business, FIND WATER! I had a spot that we were going to check out with the assumption that it could be busy. We pulled into the trailhead to find 1 car…
Our FJ40. We drove a few hours out into the desert to see if the truck we’d heard about was worth it or not...
