Well getting close, who all is in this year? Unfortunately I am unable to make it, my son has some serious hockey tournaments over the next few months that are taking any extra money.... And I do not have a rig finished. Pretty bummed about it, but there will always be next year. Gotta put my family first on this one.

Enjoy the time with your son, you'll never get enough of that.

My rig is still sitting where the flatbed dropped it after Ouray.
I've messed with it a little with no luck and will try going back to carb as time permits (have parts but very little time).
rstep and I have speculated that it may have finally jumped time (over 300K). In case that is true I'm already shopping/looking for a used 455.

If I don't get it running I'm coming in the Q.
It's not lifted or locked yet so it can't do much more than chase parts and explore some of the easier places. There's a couple of ghost towns and an abandoned WWII camp I'd like to check within an hour or two of the LC area.
I'd also be real happy to ride with someone, shoot video and spot as needed

That's a bummer Michael, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Kids sports are great .

I'm pretty much ready, haven't done anything significant to the chop-top since last years event. I have lots I'd like to do to it but the J10 has taken priority lately.

This weekend will tell if the wag is coming or not.
If I can't pull it together this weekend I'm in the Q.
Have school the weekend of the 8th and 15th and after that, no time.

Yes, it has low range .
Unfortunatly it also has the ground clearance of a big wheel.

I have to call it, the wag is down and out.
3/4" of slop in the timing chain and it sounds like I lost a rod bearing also.

So watch out.
We'll be sportin' new 29's and 8.5" of clearance

Wish I could be there to watch that bad boy in action, next year us Texas guys will bring the big guns out there! Eddie is almost done with his buggy, and if I can keep working on mine I should be done around the first of the year. Hope you all have fun, take lots of pics for me!
