Talking Bash To Do List

Didn't see one this years so here it goes.

1st. Ive got to get power back to my House after the Storms in S. MO
2nd. Wench the trailer to the road because the ground is way to wet to get my truck to it.
3rd. Fix my traielr lights
4th. Get the trailer licensed in MO
5th. Start the Jeep, check fluids, grease everything, etc.
6th. Load all my camping crap, not too much stuff
7th. Load the Jeep
8th. Make tracks to Attica

I'm sure I forgotten something too.

2001 TJ Built, Wrecked, then Built Bigger, then rolled and fixed again, now rolled again. Do you see a pattern!!

A few days ago I replaced the seal in the front winch drive and straightened the front bumper. Then Toby and I fixed the windshield nut that had broken loose. Today I started to clean the poor thing up a little. It's almost ready to go. I have to go pick up the trailer, clean oput the motorhome, and then load a whole lot of stuff.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

Got the transmission in last week, front driveshaft this week, found out I don't have overdrive and jeep is at the transmission shop. After that, just pack everything. Looks like I finally get to bring the CJ again. Oh, yeah, take the BFG's off and put the LTB's on.

It has been fairly nice the last few days. I have about 30-40 miles on the new gear sets and everything is looking great.

Gotta grease the chassis and tinker a bit with the carb and on board air.

Most of my concern is with the trailer I am borrowing. The last time it was used by my neighbor I had to help him get the brakes to work last minute for a CO trip. He says all brakes and lights are still good to go, but I won't go get the trailer until Wednesday sometime. I hope I spend most of Wednesday casually loading/packing and not mad thrashing on a trailer.

Otherwise, just got to get with my rider and determine what we need for food, tent, and try to make an educated guess on clothing needs without packing half the house. The closest I will come to an enclosed Jeep is a Safari top and soft half doors, but I do have a kick a$$ heater so as long as I can stay relatively dry we'll be good to go.

Oh yeah... need to hit a beverage store.

Is this the only hammer you've got?

The hard part is over with -- I made it home. Now I just need to "recover".

I replaced my hydro-assist lines, installed new seats, harnesses, cd player, and redid the center console. Now it is just PM the trailer and sub then shop and pack.

JUNK FOOD, BEER, ICE, SMOKES,
And something stinky to run off bugs with!


Don't forget the 'Treats' for the camp strays that always show up for 'Free' stuff...
You know, Pickled Eggs, Pickled Pigs Feet, Clear Liquor...
Stuff you KNOW will haunt them the next day!

The Yellow Jeep has been pulled out of the weeds, new flywheel ring gear.... So at least it starts again (first time in just about a year). Wonder how long it will run with that Holley injection setup???

Didn't know you were coming Brad... Will be good to have you.

Never thought of Pickled Eggs as junk food... But I've got a few of those and will bring a couple of BBQ Grills, a Smoker... Some other things to eat that I don't consider to be "Junk Food", might just be a little bit unhealthy but not "Junk Food". I'm not eating salads this coming weekend.

Should be a good weekend providing we don't need boats to save the "Camp Strays" from drowning.
