Subscribed, Surely my ride will be complete by then! Wouldn't mind meeting a few Isuzu afficianados. I looked at some of the videos though and I don't think my 88 stocker with standard tires and suspension is up to some of that rock crawling.

If it's dry, there's a lot of fun to be had without putting your rig at much risk. Half the trails or so should be doable. If it rains, all bets are off!

This is one of the few/only things that, since I moved to west coast in 2002, makes me wish I was back east. OK, maybe three things: this, better Pizza, and less urban violence. ;)

This sounds like such a great time, and if I was in a 500 miles radius, I'd go. Have fun!

Didn't realize this was going to happen, but since it is I'll be there, even if just for one day. Be awesome if the Axiom is together enough to bring out.

Does anyone need any parts?
I'm going to have a first gen trooper to part out. I am gonna keep some parts for the LS I am rebuilding but figure if anyone wants something, PM me.
Also have a set of snowflakes for sale and some RS stuff left I could take to URE.
I'd only pack up stuff if someone said they wanted it though.

Smitty and I are trying to get our act together to get down there. I've got some issues to work through with the motorhome, and Smitty has to rebuild the brakes on the Heep. We might just tent camp if I can't find time to finish. I would bring the truck camper down, but it has issues as well... Come to thing of it... Except for the new truck all my junk is falling apart. :lol:

I will be glad to host a group dinner if I can get organized and get a campsite reserved. More to follow...

*** EDIT ***

Well, I waited too long. All the campsites are booked. If anyone needs to cancel let me know and I will try to snag your site. I would ask if anyone had space for us to share a site, but those who know me know I don't travel light. :lol: At a minimum I will have a F250, trailer, Heep, grill and probably the kitchen sink too.
