    Gaia GPS app

    We have it and swear by it. The layering options available are many. Current weather and forecasts, cell coverage, game units, public and private lands, FS roads and trails. It’s a great tool to have.

    Backyard camp out

    Thanks! No one complained, so I considered it a success. 😆

    Backyard camp out

    It’s nice in the winter atop the ridge when you’re above the clouds in the sunshine. There’s a few nice bowls and hill climbs up there. When I was still running sled dogs I’d take a 12-14 dog team all the way up to the lookout and back down for the challenge.

    Backyard camp out

    Probably mine. I have a lead foot as it is. The spawn is much more conservative. I tell him he’d obviously been kidnapped by aliens and replaced with a replicant at some point, as my real son would have immediately challenged me to a race the moment he’d bought a Jeep. 👽

    Backyard camp out

    The developed state and FS campgrounds around Lake Wenatchee and Leavenworth have been packed on the weekends since they opened back up. Dispersed is the way to go. If you’re going to head over this way PM me and I’ll let you know some good places.

    Backyard camp out

    Only a 2 hour drive over Stevens from your neck of the woods. You should head over. The rest of the Puget Sound Basin seems to be here already. 🤣

    Hello from Battle Ground, Washington

    Welcome from the middle of the state! Chris is right, that is a grand color combo. Nice looking Jeep!

    Backyard camp out

    Took Friday off and my son and I went camping. We stayed close to home so my wife could join us in the evenings, as she had to work. When I say back yard camp out, this is our back yard: Look for the reddish brown 2 story with the old Ford tractor parked out front. Promise it’s right there in...

    Riddle me this, Batman

    Yeah, it was the TJ Rubi that broke the camel’s back and made me post though. Did see a well restored classic Land Rover series II or IIa yesterday that had the good form to go topless.

    Riddle me this, Batman

    Call this a rant, an observation or what have you. My boy and I on a little camping adventure close to home, more camping than wheeling, so the wife can come in the evenings after work. We’re at a junction on the FS road system so we see a lot of traffic going by. Dang near every Jeep we’ve seen...

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    I used NAPA Power Steering Gear Box Major Seal Kit NPS 7380.

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    Removing it is pretty straightforward, depending on how hard the Pitman fights coming off. Cleaning the casting and parts took a fair chunk of time. Replacing the seals and packings and then putting all back took around an hour. Re-installation and bleeding the system was fairly quick. You can...

    Greetings from the Pacific

    Welcome! Lived on Guam 74-76. Beautiful place. Thanks for sharing your trip!

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    Removed, rebuilt and reinstalled the gear box yesterday. You only get the one picture of the finished box because who wants to clean fluid and shite off their phone in the middle of a rebuild? Sadly lads and lasses, there was a casualty. Even titanium framed glasses don’t fare well when some...

    Reheat burgers under the hood? Other trail food included

    Then where will you fry your eggs? 🤣

    Reheat burgers under the hood? Other trail food included

    I’m thinkin’ that may count.

    Reheat burgers under the hood? Other trail food included

    I’ve known people that have mounted these (or ones like it) on their snowmobiles and not been happy with how they performed. Might work better in a more temperate environment, though.

    Reheat burgers under the hood? Other trail food included

    Early 70’s we were transferring between duty stations. Picked up the Chevelle Station Wagon in Florida after it was shipped back from Gitmo and headed for NAS Whidbey. Via Tennessee, Missouri and Iowa to visit family. My mother would make dinner each night on the road big enough for leftovers...

    “The 2006 Jeep Wrangler has a dangerously unreliable engine”

    That’s deserves a UHF reference. 🤣 Typical poorly written clickbait article.
