I remember some pictures from a rubithon trail report earlier this year. You get lockers in your cruiser yet? Or get the overheating figured out?

That pic (pics 61 & 62) where you are looking down into LS and there is a Zuk, then you take a pic of your friend under the tree, I am right next to his left hand in the distance...I am standing across the LS and up on the hill barely visible next to a different tree. Some dude was welding on his jeep next to those three people across the sluice in the pic.

I was driving a white TJ.

Just wierd showing up in other folks photos

When the inflow from Rockbound is big, Buck is pretty cold. Once the inflow stops, it warms up quickly. The springs are pretty close to the same temperature all summer, so they are warmer than Buck during inflow and colder than Buck after it quits. Spider is pretty consistently warmer than the springs too, but not by a lot.

Lucky getting to wheel during the week!

I always bring the swimsuit too but sometimes it just doesn't work out.
