    Half the group ran hells revenge today, i kinda took a psuedo shop day for some badly needed maintenance.

    Here's a short rundown...

    Looking like we have spankys rig repaired. After all the talk about EFI and computers turns out the pickup hose in the gas tank had deteriorated causing the fuel pump to suck air as the gas sloshes around in the tank. Kinda too bad for us as we started accusing him of simply running out gas which woulda made me damned happy knowing i could rail on home forever, oh well.

    Hendog had his frame brake right and the drivers side rear spring hanger, seen this on other 40s as well. Will have him welded back up in morning.

    Elvi finished off a set of RCV shafts, stripped the splines off so will dig into in morning.

    Steve is still in one piece after 1.5 days since last breakage which was the rear studs on drivers side. More on that later.

    My truck had some minor repairs needed after the rollover. I dropped the skids to tighten up the t case bolts and found 1 t case mount broken off and 2 stripped t case bolts. Welded the mount back and tapped out 2 holes for bigger bolt.

    Roger is done, custom RCV shaft failed and no spare.

    Bill has done well, the least assembled and most recently modified rig is holding together well. That said weve scared Bill and looks like hes headed home a day or 2 early. Apparently he forgot to feed the fish.

    F-ing Heep guy left today undamaged but he dont wheel it so it figures.

    I'm upset I missed Metal Masher and Rusty Nail. Will plan on it for the 2020 trip - but expect Pritchett to be first on the list after a few group rides.

    Big thanks to Roger for having breakfast ready several days and for standing in with the stick welder. Thanks to Steve for lending me a double carden that matched my bolt pattern in exchange for the incorrect one I brought (correct one was sitting in front of garage when i got home). Spanky, entertaining as always - wouldn't take much to get the purple 40 up to Burner specs. Nick and Darla, dead to rights certain it was "Nick" making the FB comments about loving outfits - congrats on a break free week. Elvi, we're going to get you set up with a winch and convince you crawling is better for the soul. Hendog/Lucy - hope to see you aroundabouts Turkey weekend to talk Gustov Stickley and 4 link geometry. Ted - thinking I'll fly out with you next time, driving sucks. Last but not least, Benny and Adriana - thanks for the laughs, hope to see you folks next time.

    Home o_O. I could get used to the nomad life I think, haven't shaved in 2 weeks and have no issue with that.

    Anyway, uploading pics and vids but nothing will do this trip justice both in content and imagery.

    You simply can't capture some things with a camera. For instance, the smirk Bill gets when he walks a tough obstacle, the wind whipping up a 1000' cliff face an pushing you back from the edge or the shadows cast by a full moon when on a trail at midnight. These are the things that bring you back...

    Day 1: Valley of Fire

    saw a ton of these
