Saw several MJ stickers. Met bigtruckman, but never saw you either Jim. Also spent an hour at Dave Allen's having new valve stems put on a couple of my wheels and talking about his M715 (sweet rig). BTW, he has a GL4x4 sticker in the window too.

Had a hell of a time getting home driving the CJ the whole way. Lets just say I wont be wheeling anymore until I buy another tow vehicle (sold my truck this spring). Overheated just West of Grand rapids. My wife was supposed to be following me, but had passed and was two vehicle in front of me. Apparantly she didn't see me overheat b/c she drove another 40 miles before finally turning around. By that time I had pissed on the side of the highway, limped to the next exit, walked with a fixed-income older guy, met many of the locals, thought I might be in a candid porn flick, finally ended up at a shop where they could make-shift replace my radiator hose than had a hole in it. Long story short it took 10 hours to get home from the dunes to Ann Arbor. Then the next morning I find a HUGE puddle of tranny fluid under the jeep. Not good. Looks like my Jeep won't be leaving town again until I can find a decent C-class motorhome to tow it with.

Still love the dunes though.
