You're taking 40 up the backside at 7:30 and pulling out around 8.

The gas pumps are really slow;)

This is another one of those Podunk family adventure cruises, last minute/spur of the moment things. We were first going for Chiva or Chimney Rock, but powers that be... thought it to be cool to go see the Lemmon, since none of us have visited the top of the mountain after the Aspen fire..

Next on my to do list is a run to Klondike (overnighter out of Mammoth, any interest?).

Keep us posted - I'll get my mucklucks and sled dogs ready.

Where do you camp?

Rocky

Lol, great day, we decided to go to Chimney rock..I was running back door to the group I was running with, an lo and behold, a blue 40 series pops up in my rear view (it was Chuck/ Rocky:cool: followed by a tricked out disco and a j**p). Robert, the head of our group, radio's back there is another batch of trucks coming out our way. I call him back and tell him I'll catch up, "I ran into a friend of mine back here"....Turns out the other batch of rigs is led by Jake/Trailbus and Cayce/A-mus-ed...Too cool..Small world..
I've got a few pics to post when I can get to a faster comp at work.
Cayce's buddy had an awsome 62 series with a 6hz turbo..

Nice running into you guys!:cheers:

As far as Klondike, who's got plans on Memorial day weekend? Maybe Sat, and Sunday?

Camp somewhere around Turkey creek..

Ya, it was sweet running into you guys out there. Mine was a short notice run, too. My cousin called me up yesterday and said he'd be in town and wanted to wheel. He's the one with the 62. He did a diesel conversion from a half-chop from Australia. It's a 12H-T, and he's got an H-55 behind it. He was nice enough to let me drive it - freaking amazing.
