Well the Jeep Jamboree I was going to in Cullman Alabama in September was canceled.. RONA

So they gave us the option to use the $$$ toward a Jeep Jamboree in 2021 or switch to the one being held at the Land Between the Lakes in KY the same weekend.
I opted for the Land between the Lakes..... and it just got canceled this weekend. I am a little more than bummed!
Work is extremely slow and it sure is nice to have something to look forward to. I have one more in October in Greenbrier WV. I sure hope it happens

I'm kicking around the idea of heading to RUSH Off Road or Windrock Sept. 9-13th

I need to try out the 4 link!

I remember Land O' Lakes from my late teenage days... me and two buddies went to ride offroad, it was EPIC. Best dirtbiking I've ever done, plus camping out. Another buddy let me borrow his Yamaha IT175, I flogged that thing hard! Best ride was when I got lost. Figured out that I was lost, but also that I had a full gas tank. Rode all afternoon on single track, til I recognized things.

Still would love to go back. Might need to find a 3rd bike now... ; )

Its amazing what people attempt to drive off road.

I would love to go on a few runs with them just for fun!

So Matt’s videos had shown up in my Youtube lately, so we’ve watched all of those, which led to more off-fading videos, then I saw Mark posted that Black Bear Pass video on Facebook, which reminded me of this thread on Badweb. Cool stuff!

I am semi on the hunt for a jeep that can do MILD off road stuff. I would love to drive the Black Bear Pass road. BUT, my wife doesn't like misery as much as I do so something reliable with AC would be a must.

I'm day dreaming of something with a small lift but a tank underneath.
Lockers, Winch, skid plates and semi bullet proof.
The new Gladiator checks a bunch of boxes but the $$,$$$.$$ is keeping me away.

If I could just pick 6, I would be good to go!

You can get a new Wrangler with the Ecodiesel...torquetorqueTORQUE! Although, only a 4 door - it's the only way they could fit the fuel tand and DEF tank, apparently.

Personally, I'd like to see a 2 door diesel, and a 2 door Gladiator...er, Scrambler! But when even a base Wrangler 2 door manual trans no options other than limited-slip is over $30k...I'm not in the market anyway. lol

Changed out the original body mounts on my 95 yj last week, what a dirty, nasty, frustrating job that was. Out of the 11 bolts, 7 broke (mostly the 1/2" ones!). Luckily I was ably to get access to drill or knock them all out but what a time suck. A couple hour job ended up taking 8 and I even had to break out the welder a couple times. Next is replacing the driver and pass front floor pans, while not horribly I can see the ground so I'm going to do it right and then rhino line the tub.

Wish me well.

Well shit.... my Jeep trips keep getting canceled do to the Rona.

I "was" going to go to Alabama in mid September to one of the best Jamborees I have ever been to.
They canceled it because they rescheduled "The Land Between the Lake" jamboree to the same weekend. LBL is a larger wing ding and brings in more $$$ so my trip to Cullman, Alabama got canceled and they offered LBL for free instead.... Okay.. I'll give it a try...and canceled.
No biggie.. I'll use the funds to put my brother-in-law in the passenger seat at the Greenbrier Jamboree.... NOPE.. they just canceled it too. The real kick in the nuts is they are only refunding us 85% of our money. Needless to say, that does not make me happy! I was pretty PO'd for a few days and then decided to start looking for some other place to go. I have the days scheduled off and the Jeep is ready to go. TN.. AL.. Mi.. NOPE! I'm going back to good ole WV. I found a place called the "Good Evening Ranch" 400 acres of private free for all. They had Rock Bouncers last weekend so the trails should be pretty easy to find.

Stand by for pics and lies!

Ha ha! Crusty I know what you did there. You held up a quarter to show to your friends, then tossed one of those shiny new nickels that looks like a quarter, in under that Jeep!

Man, that trick never gets old!

Well this could have been the end of my trip and it damn near was.
Lucky for me there was a driveshaft shop about 15 miles away from the park. Got it fixed and got to play all day Friday.
