Penrose 6/27/10

First time down in this area, and I had a blast! Except for the retarded mountain folk in their too-clean-to-ever-be-wheeled rigs that kept blocking the trail, the people and trail were fantastic, and even had the privilege to hang out with a couple of East Coast members for the day!

Break downs were few and far between, even though my personal rig and a couple others took some pretty good cosmetic some steering damage (Nicely bent my Rusty's "HD" tie rod).

All in all, I had a pretty damn good time.

Here's a few of the pictures that Mike and I took with my Camera. I have a bunch more, but am too tired to get them all cropped this evening. Enjoy!

Re: Penrose 6/27/10

I'm home finally too. We all hit Texas roadhouse afterwards for
some much needed food. Turned into a very long day as penrose had a feild day eating peoples rigs. There were a few tire malfunctions, some steering and body damage. Broken hydro steering setups a flop and some other stuff. Defi itely was an interesting day. Kick ass group tho and I had a blast finally dropping bunker hill. Our east coast friends were pure entertainment and cool rigs for sure.



And Clark ya gotta get the pics of everyo e else up too geeee. This guy

Re: Penrose 6/27/10

Ah we had fun, Just got home. Yup had some problems but all in all a good day. My pics are coming tomorrow. Cut a sidewall Yipee for road hazzard, IE free tire. broke my trackbar bracket, Flores the 1/4 steel broke before my welds, So if you need some welding classes LMK.

So I'll put the cage on hold for a few days and do some bracket work on the good old 30. Probley do some new coil buckets ass well why I'm at it.

Thanks Mike for puttin together a great run! We'll have to do it again so I can show Penrose who's the boss. LOL

Here's my pics

Re: Penrose 6/27/10

Got home around 11:30......... holeeee kerapppp that was a long day!

Yeah, kinda bummed the original plan failed to have the two groups meet up after dropping into Indy - after well over an hour, I just didn't want to wait around and had to do some 'wheeling....... long trip NOT to get some in........

We got stuck behind some YJ some dude bought from the owner that modded it. He had NO idea what to do with the damn thing. Starter fell out and the positive terminal shorted against the frame...... big mess. Kiefer, Tip and I missed out on dropping into Indy because of that fool.

Truggy may have some t-case issues - angry midget with a big hammer took up residence in there on the way back to the truck. Hopefully just needs a chain/bearing and shift forks or something....... Otherwise, no carnage. The new beadlocks look well used now though.......

Our east coast friends were a riot! They have big brass cajones though, driving those XJ's from NY to CA then wheeling lots of places on the way back. Wish them all good luck with the rest of their trip!

Sounds like J-9 will be adding a few items to her XJ mod list after this trip!

Oh, and don't let Elguapo ride shotgun in your rig....... bad brown-guy mojo....... he was in JD's rig all day....... and we all know what happened there........

Re: Penrose 6/27/10

I'm super tired from yesterday. Went to work and got sent home cause there was nothing to do. Worked out perfectly. Time to go back to bed.
I believe jd was also losing his power steering about 15 from the exit.

Re: Penrose 6/27/10

Oh yeah, and not many things learned on this trip, but here goes:

1) It's NEVER ok to use underwear as a hand rag.......
2) The Penrose area is home to small bugs that do nothing but look for human orfices to fly into.
3) Apparently "legit" is the new "cool"........ even on the east coast.
4) Janine WILL bring the guilt where Texas Roadhouse dinner rolls are concerned.
5) Have a tow rig? Be prepared to NOT haul your own junk home.......
6) Have a tow rig? You'll find out just how many removeable XJ doors the bed and trailer will hold.
7) Having to do XJ repairs next to a guy washing massive blackwater/septic tank spillage from his RV is NEVER pleasant.

Re: Penrose 6/27/10

troy you hit it on the nose!
anyone got pics of corey using those boxers to dry his hands?

and i think janine gave me the death stare a few times as she drove the jeep out as i was drooling over the thought of texas roadhouse rolls...and then got stuck between her and the wall white eating them! i had nowhere to go!!!!!

and i really need more steering umph so si can actually turn the tires...or maybe bumpstops to keep em out of my body so itll be easier to turn! lol...good times for sure
