I know I have to do something with that carb, whether its upgrade to a better quality 2bbl or go FI, but those hills were killing me. I'm gonna try to be back out there Saturday after work, hopefully I wont have to stay over. I should have those disconnects off by then too. With any luck, I'll get my dad to join me with his CJ.

Yeah it was a lot of fun. The scramble area is definately my favorite. I'm working my video, I'm just taking raw video and piecing it together. It's about 8mins so far. Yeah the motor mount is pretty cheap, and I want to get the rear end welded up before the next run we do.

Looks like it's time for me to pay another visit. Maybe this time I'll stay together more than 5 minutes. RB

We may start lower till more is done. The fuel bill will start to add up for the build and we are just going to try to make it pay for its self for now.

We will be out there all we can . Hope to have enough done so we can start takeing donations to keep going on the build. I want to have a full run in two weeks for sure. if you want to come take a peek this weekend come on out. I will be there around 10 and the gate should be open.

I hope to have trails marked this week. There are so many trails scattered out across the place I get turned around myself. Conecting the differant areas with easy and rugged trails is the next step. Working all day and then working on the park is going to be a challange, But it will be well worth it soon.
Looking into so concrete tomarrow and planning a log crossing and off camber crawl. Dozer is getting a new radiator , then the work will get easyer. Hope to have way more rocks in by Fri.
