The October monthly meeting is scheduled for October 21, 2022 at 7:30pm.

Sonic/QuikTrip on Broadway in Tempe.

I am not sure if I will be there to lead. I had heel surgery on 10/8/22 and I am on a knee scooter and will not be able to walk yet.

I will add an agenda to this post as we get closer.

Thank you.

Wish I could make it, but I have a Halloween party to attend!

Anyone mind mentioning the campout on Nov 5th? I will be posting more details on the thread, but want to make sure it's noted.

- The location is about 5 miles north of Roosevelt Lake, off the 288. Will post coordinates week of the event. Plenty of space, all are welcome. Will need 4x4 to get in, but there is only one spot that will require it, and last trip out it was not difficult.
- I'll be taking 4 peaks road over just for fun, planning to meet at the 4 peaks staging area off the 87 at noon on Saturday.

I might be home for this one. Sad that I wont get to make fun of @Somebodyelse5 in person. Have fun at your Halloween party ( He's lying, it's Pokémon tournament).

Come to the halloween camp out, you will be able to make fun of me plenty there AND see my cruiser actually touch dirt :)

Seems like a long way to go when fall colors can be found here in Arizona.

I won't be able to make it tonight, I experienced an unexpected death in my family two days ago and am just feeling too overwhelmed to try to come be social. If someone could please record the official meeting bit on their phone and send me a Google Drive link (or similar) to the recording, I can transcribe and post the notes. PM me and I can send you my email address. I expect I will be unavailable to attend next month as well due to needing to travel out of state to deal with more details related to this situation. Sorry I'm such an absentee secretary lately, life has just been really busy. Thanks in advance!

I'm just seeing this. So incredibly sorry to hear of your loss. No worries on the meeting. I covered the main details in my normal scattered way, but didn't record it. I did have everyone sign in though.

Thank you so much, I had totally planned on being there or else I would've arranged for someone to cover for me in advance. Appreciate it! Looks like it was a great meeting.

Obviously there were no FJ62 owners there? Same engine as the 91/92 FJ80 just with a part time transfer case. Lighter vehicle and part time 4WD probably gets one mile per gallon better mileage.
