Tomorrow!

Post by Kevin on Fri Jan 17, 2014 7:31 am

Anybody headed out anywhere? I have to get out. I NEED to get out. Anybody doing anything and want some company?

If not, I'm thinking about exploring out the PET or Black Canyon way, or maybe driving out to the Silver Islands and poking around.

I might be up for it. I wanted to put my new body mounts on today, but maybe that can wait and I can install my rear locker instead.

Black Rock Canyon, I guess I was thinking of. Little bit south of Vernon. What's Black Canyon?

No idea, you just mentioned Black Canyon in your opening post.

Boo! There's no sense in affording life if you don't have a life. Call in sick, come play.

Word. Is Fred ready for some freeway miles or do you need to stay local?

I've got a lunchbox locker to install. You guys think I could get it done in an afternoon? It'd be great to test it out tomorrow.

Maybe in a long afternoon?  It'll be several hours if you haven't done it before, longer if you hit a snag.   If you start right now, you'll probably be done by dark but just barely.  Do you know what you're doing?

I played with my maps a little - I'm thinking PET over Lookout Pass, then Government Camp Road south around the backside of the Sheeprock Mountains to pop out on Hwy6 just north of Little Sahara, then through Eureka to the interstate.  Like this.  Should be doable without worrying about gas, and if we left the Chevron at 10:00 think we'd have time to screw around and still be back on pavement well before dark.

I have no idea how passable Government Camp Road is, so improvisation may be required.  Very Happy

Do I know what I'm doing? Mostly.....no. Very Happy  I've been reading the instructions and write-ups, but this will be a learning experience. I think I'll wait until I'm not under any time constraint.

Sweet, let's do it then.  Ten o'clock at the Chevron, and if the roads are too bad we'll abort and hit Snakes or Little Moab.  Who's in?

Thanks for joining me, guys.  That was good to get off pavement for a day.

Hahaha. It was a good day I enjoyed it. Made it home and ran out of gas in the driveway.

Seemed like you had a fair amount of power once you dropped the muffler, you were cruising pretty good. Time for a Flowmaster and high flow cat!

So, not tp be all Debbie Downer, but I think you might not be getting very good mileage.  Laughing
