CJA New Year's Day Run
« on: December 06, 2011, 06:56:26 PM »
There will be a CJA sanctioned run in Waiparous on New Year's Day

The focus of this run is to be stocker-friendly. We will have a group headed up to Margaret lake - 100% family friendly and open to as many people as we can.

Requirements:
Good MT, AT, or winter tires, and be prepared to air down to 15 psi please. (NO MINIMUM TIRE SIZE)
Full sized spare tire.
Good front and rear tow points.
Lots of warm clothing, and a change of footwear for everyone in the vehicle
Lots of food and water for everyone in the vehicle
Patience and a good attitude - we will be moving at a speed that is comfortable for the slowest member of the group

Good Ideas:
Recovery Strap
Shovel
CB Radio
Something to cook over a fire at Margaret lake if the weather is good.

I will be leading the run, and Apeman will be tailgunner. If there are other members that would like to volunteer, we can line people up to mid-gun, and perhaps lead/tail-gun a more challenging group if we have a big turn-out.

We will meet at Smitty's for 9AM. Please have a full tank of fuel and be ready to roll when you show up.

I followed a rainbow out to a garage and found a leprichaun. The rainbow ended in a potted cactus on his porch, but there was no gold :(

I should be good for this, you can put me in the middle, or tail whatever if we break into groups.

Family is still in town visiting, runs looks like a no go for me.

Ok scratch that, visiting family Is coming with, still available to help with stockers

I may be out for this one. Does it have to be a jeep? I may have my blazer ready to go by then.

About the only vehicle I will have thats wheelable right now is my Ranger ;)

I followed a rainbow out to a garage and found a leprichaun. The rainbow ended in a potted cactus on his porch, but there was no gold :( Just promises of axles that would fit my XJ... One of these days I will again have the Jeep workin :D
I did a Google search for "hot trannies" but nothing came up about oil coolers  :o

Worrying too much about mpg with a Jeep is similar to worrying about your sister's virginity. An ok thing to be concerned about but...

In for this one too.

Be happy to help where needed.
You know you are addicted to wheeling when you have to air up to go to work.
