Anza Borrego Desert State Park is a great place to explore. More than 600,000 acres with 500 miles of dirt roads and thousands of acres to disperse camp on. Some of the offroading highlights are "The Diablo Dropoff" "The Slot" "Calcite Mine" "Borrego Badlands" "Los Coyotes Canyon" "Carrizo Creek" "Oriflamme Canyon" "Heart Attack Hill" "Fish Creek"

The Goat Canyon Trestle Bridge over Carrizo Gorge is the longest curved trestle bridge in the USA.

Thank you. It would be very nice if the percentages are going up.

Certainly at an Aussie site I see about 80% of PB hosted images. Yet, at another N. American forum the percentage is 0 for PB hosted .....

Regarding the pictures: seems like the browser one is using can also be part of the problem.

There was a fellow last year with lots of photos in his thread. I could not see any of them with my Mozilla/Firefox browser on my Mac. Switched browsers and logged in using the Safari browser that came with the Mac and bingo! Photos all over the place.

woo hoo! I'm excited to have finally uploaded our recent vacation pictures, and being able to share some of them with you all! I'm excited that there are tons of other jeepers out there that have a TC as their preferred method of camping! We started in Florence, AZ for the 4x4Him.org Arizona Chapter's 4x4 Jamboree....

me and my 4 month old, Dustin in front of the jeep and TC

our jeep, a 95 YJ...

After the Jambo, we headed back towards home, and spent the week up in Big Bear. We had a couple of low key days (relaxing with other friends, and did the Moonridge zoo) and Did a couple of low key wheeling days, Gold Mountain on one day, and John Bull on the next. It was a great time. Here's some pictures of the Jeep and the Scout out on the trails...

this happens to be the spot where I proposed to Vickie (now my wife!) 9 years ago...

More wheeling shots....

my baby took a little damage on this one. We unstacked some logs that were in there to make the trail easier, and it cost me a fender! Thats what happens when you play in the big rocks though!

and of course, no camping trip over Halloween would be complete without a campground tour and a little "trick or treating"...

Naomi dressed up as Tigger....

sharing some of her spoils with yours truly...

and Dustin dressed up as a Bear...

[image]

cute, isn't he?

[image]

and here's a picture of our campsite in Serrano campground, spot 44. Great spot, and lots of room for Naomi to run around.

[image]

and on our way home. We stopped at the Scenic Viewpoint at the bottom of the hill on the 38 (before you go into Mentone) and took a few more pictures before getting back to "civilization"

[image]

[image]

It was cool to see the leaves changing... made for some beautiful scenery!

Here we are, parked back at home... how sad.

[image]

until the next trip, hope you all enjoyed some of our adventures!


God Bless,

Jon, Vickie, Naomi, and Dustin.... The Mudmovers!

Wow! Huge quantity of work it must have been to put together your photo series!

It's now in Trip Reports...

thanks, Silver... I love doing write ups from our trips and such... I thought this was a quickie! I'll have to put more materials from our adventures into the trip reports section! (as we get more TC adventures, that is... we're just starting out!)

My Zuki has not yet been the center of attraction. It has done a great job providing us with transportation sightseeing, on many of our outings. This is in its stock form.

[image]



In the past few months, it has grown a bit. Today, I installed my low gear transfer case, and a couple of other goodies. I will install 31-inch tires within the next couple of weeks.

The Rubicon is in my backyard (about 45-minutes). I expect to post photos from there, after the snow melts.

the first 3 pictures are my old jeep, this is my new one still under construction. the new one has a high pinion dana 44 front and a ford 9 inch rear out of a 79 f150. 5.38 gears with detroits front and rear. moser axle shafts throughout. no rust at all, and only 49k miles. it rides on 37 inch swamper ssr's. i just did the gears, lockers and shafts in the last month. its still waiting on some suspension work, a cage, and ram assist steering. i am also cutting the 3 inch body lift down to 1.25 inches. a little body trimming will be done in the rear. the front fenders will be raised about 2.25 inches. should make for a little lower center of gravity, and easier entry.
