I have no idea how to get up there, but I can get to Salina no problem. I'll probably be late from aimlessly driving around wasting gas hoping to run into something familiar...

Take Ohio to Greely (Stop light in front of True Value) then head east untill the road t's. Not sure what the name of the road Greely t's with but the east side of that road is the entrance to Indian Rock. Turn in and head to the top. There is a gravel parking area with a storm shelter. We will be parked in there.

While I don't give that Calendar enough credit, I truly am thankful for it!

I had a blast today! Caught some sun, spent some much needed time behind the wheel of the ol' Ford, and hung out with some rad people. Today was a good day.

It was a fantastic time. I got to give a couple rigs a good complete work out. After I got the trail finder home and was running out the battery a little I noticed the rear passenger suspension sagging some. It turns out I broke a leaf spring. It was the main one that connects in the hangers. New leafs on order and should be here before Raymond. If not does someone have one I could use and replace when mine get in?

The twin hammers never ceases to impress me. I'm going to have to order another set of 1.9 pit bulls cause I don't think I'm ever taking those tires off this rig. I was debating putting a 22 turn motor in it instead of the 35 to gain some wheel speed but I don't know, the low speed maneuverability seemed really nice. Any opinions from those who watched her?

I would say go with like a 27t, she needs a little more wheel speed.
