loving the skid plate pics

here is a photo of Adam Lengyel's skid, which incorporates a brace that makes it strong enough to jack up the vehicle by. I think Dale Mendenhall developed the part, if someone has any info to link, please share..

My wife and I will be in town from the 22nd of August, and we would like to meet up with some folks. We will be staying at my Mothers house in LSB for a month.

Also, if anyone is into Geocaching, we would love to meet up for caching as well.

I am eager to go back to San Martin Peak with my Syncro, which has been in the shop for over 2 months for tranny work. Really hoping it will be done by then.

Yeah, bummer. We have family commitments on this particular weekend. It's my Mothers birthday and the whole reason for the trip.

I may be in for the campout.

If I am able to go to mogfest I am leaving on wed. after work and driving straight through to get there. I may be up for a caravan back but on the way up it is all business for me- a straight 12 hour run.

so far we have me, Texxxxx, Mario, Blake and David K coming to Los Burros Saturday August 27, 12 noon.

Looking forward to seeing you all.

Others are welcome, including 2wd vans if weather is dry. Mud would be a limiting factor on 2wd.

You can do it man, I drove 12 hours straight to Syncro Fest. The pit at MF is so much fun and the people are great.

The drive isn't the problem, I drove over 24 hrs straight getting my truck home. Smile Getting time off work will be tricky. With the event getting closer and knowing there are several friends heading up I am pretty committed to attend.


Noon on the 27th sounds good to me. Same bat time same bat meeting location. Cool

Just realized I have a prior commitment on that weekend. I'm not very well organized, it seems.

Have a good time, and see you at the next one, guys.
