Bryan and I were talking about sharing a tent site with someone to cut down on costs. What are the limits per site? We will just have one vehicle, one tent, two people. Will be there Tuesday through Friday night.

The rule is two tents and vehicles per site. Altho we've seen that stretched in the past. I think we had 3 tents/vehicles in the G spot one year. I'd suggest getting the tent sites farthest back if folks are going to share. Out of site, out of mind!

Sorry Bigun, I'll share if you want. . You can come over and visit.

Jumped on it while it was still available. I liked that back corner area.

Besides, I didn't want any strange fluids running out from Crom flowing through my campsite

Don the problem with buying from gas stations is they not only charge you road tax but they also charge you sales tax!! The first year I went to Ouray I paid 10 cents more per gallon than you folks who were running gasoline. This last year since I was able to bring my own bulk with me I only paid $1.80 per gallon and, here latly I have paid as low as$1.65!

How about this one, Jason?




I know BethAnn's been posting on our behalf, but I want to say I'm already excited about next year. I've been busy wrenching on the Explorer lately (and so has my better half). Here's a pic of it, now with 33s. We also put a Lock Right in the rear axle.



Our local club's big even was a couple of weeks ago, and I'm almost done with the repairs from it. Here's the Forum with everyone's pics, if you're interested: http://www.gilmoremotors.com/discus/viewforum.php?f=11 . There was a scary old Power Wagon that showed up that no one was expecting.

The Exploder no longer has the Wag's tires, but after my recent trials and tribulations wrenching on the Ford TTB axle, I'm seriously considering a solid axle swap. Interestingly enough, FSJ parts are high on the consideration list! I'll most likely use a baby Jeep Dana 30, but I'm also looking at Dana 44s, but the HPs are pretty expensive. However, a LP 44 from a FSJ has just about the right width, hmm.... Even if I use a 30, I'll most likely use FSJ front leaf springs. One other Explorer I know of used them and they worked like a charm.

So, we probably won't make it out in a FSJ again, but we'll probably have some parts again if everything goes well. I had a great time this year and look forward to next!

Nice pics. The first one is a good example of soil erosion. It goes from the trail to Brutus and is redeposited wherever the rust under it falls off. Might need a government-funded study to determine the environmental effects of that.

I'd use a Dana 44 LP (I'm a cheapskate,) as long as the front driveshaft will clear everything. It'll definitely handle differently on the road. I assume it'll drive less like a grocery-getter and more like a truck.

I haven't talked to Jason about sharing a campsite yet. If he's made other arrangements I'd be willing to share ours (if I can get Woman to go) with you guys. One consideration: My wife says my snoring is...umm...discomforting at times, and our tent offers no soundproofing.

I suppose there won't be as much noise from your tent this year seeing as it's not the honeymoon this time.

Thats easy Kenny! You sleep in the Jeep, she sleeps in the tent. Thats how I do it. Works well at home too.
