Weekend Pictures(Jeep is fixed)
Well, by Saturday afternoon, I was able to get the Jeep up and running(after the Hammer/Wrecking Ball, Butt kicking).
So Jeepchick and I loaded up the Yj Sunday morning and headed east from Vegas, across the desert. Using a Dept of Forrestry Topo Map, we were attempting to find an overland route, that would take us to a vista of Lake mead from the craggley hills above.
We were able to eventually find a route with the help of some freindly 2 wheelers whp were attempting and succeeded in doing the same thing, although they said they didnt think we would be able to make it, in a 4 wheeler, untill we climbed a hill they called widow maker when we parted ways. A quick glance back revealed a short round of applause then a thumbs up.
It was a great day on the trail, with no mechanical problems whatever, however Jeepchick was making me play very cautiousely. One of the fun spots of the day was an extremely loose gravel 100 ft hill climb, at a mining site,(Jeepchick was adament though that I use a safety net in the form of a slack line winch cable hook up). I think it was a wise idea since we were by ourselves and the hill was a bit scarry,(Im still pulling seat vinyl out of the crack of my a$$). Well here are a couple of pics of the ride, for those interested. Views of the Lake are on our other camera, and havent been developed yet.
I take my Jeep "On the Rocks",usually "With a Splash of Addrenalin"
