Tightened everything up, cleaned the carburetor, topped off gear oil, vacuumed out some red dirt, gassed up, put the soft top back on and headed for a drive to the lake. My son was glad to have "his" Land Cruiser back.

I hope to one day get out west and cross paths with you on an adventure. keep those amazing pics coming. the desert adventure ones make killer backgrounds on my computer. I actually have one from your trip last year taken from a drone i think of mustard, blue two reds and a modern lc lined up and a drop off the blue one is about to go down as my background on my work computer
