I don't think I've gone a weekend without one or the other, it's been a decent summer. I need to get my 60 built quick so I can still make it to rausch creek and drummond. Those are the only major trips I'm planning on

This is me, too. Take the fishing boat out any chance I can get. I figure Silver is open until November and it's a lot easier to wheel in a Carhartt than it is to launch a boat in one. Plus every park/area is usually less busy once Summer is out

Anyone going to the timber crawl this Saturday? I'm planning on going, might be my last wheeling trip until after my 60 but who knows.

On a side note, I'm going to be making some reverse progress on my cage. I'll be welding it back in for now and hopefully buying myself a hydraulic tube bender this winter to make some progress on it instead of borrowing one.

Make sure you sleeve the tubes where you cut

Bought some new PRP harnesses yesterday that should be in tomorrow. Didn't go to the crawl last weekend because it was a mud fest but did manage to put quite a few miles on the jeep which felt good. Not going to the race this weekend, I'm heading to the dunes instead with a group of guys. Welded up a few quick release fire extinguisher mounts tonight to ship out as well.

Another plus, my buddy's dad is going to water jet out a set of 3/4" d ring tabs for me for free that'll fit right in my bumper. Only down side is I won't have them till next week but I can't complain with the price
