What's do deal with? I'm sure they will be cool, just filming us on vacation having fun. We can set the parameters of the filming if you don't want to DEAL with anything...anyway your call. I won't even call them if you don't want them there.

I wasn't a newbie! It was my third run, however, my Scout was running more like a J**p I have to admit. As for the show queen hot rod...add these:... Bass + tard. Yeah, it will be fun to wheel with you too. Let's try not to run over any Samuri's this time.

So that's a NO to the cage party...bumber...so I wonder if Damien can send the cage kit over with anyone so I won't have to pay shipping? No sense giving a certificate, cause I know what I want...and I AM gonna win it....bring on the terrain!

See you soon,

Hmmm, I'm sure you meant those camera, non-scout guys, but in case you were referring to Josh's newbie comment, I'll be the first one jumping under you Scout helping you fix it as rare as Scout breakage is. I'll also be the one performing CPR on your post-stroked lifeless corpse after you see me bound up Josh's toughest picked obsticle.
Ha, I'm sounding like one of those guys on fear factor which are always the first to do the walk of shame.
Anyway, I'll be in the typical Scouters spirit always willing to lend a hand as anyone who has wheeled with me can attest to.

Wow, a good op to show off on a video, and no takers.

I know someone is going to have a camcorder out there, if there is, I want a copy of the festivaties.

Hmmm..... I dunno. What time are we gonna meet up Friday morning? I'll probably be driving up to Loon Friday morning from the Tahoe area, but I'm not 100% certain right now.

Part of me thinks it would be cool to the run (or parts of it filmed) and part of me agrees with the others about not having the film crew there.

That's what I'm saying! We had a pretty good video two years ago, so hopefully we will again.

Indeed, I enjoyed the video from the last time. But this time I don't want to hear as many starters/power steering pumps!

If you didn't have it last time, you'll really appericiate Ram-assisted steering. Makes a world of difference.

I don't want to get into it, but take all the home video you want. I just think we have to be particullarlly sensative about the 'Con these days. And sorry, but some dude you met while HIKING, who shoots video for cable TV... Let's just go have fun.

Ha, both mine. Boiled the powersteering fluid the year before, which is why I installed a line cooler. However, taking the whole steering system apart to rebuild the pump and box as well as tap the box for hydro-assist, I found the pump had about half a cup of fine metal silt in it. The cam that the vains travel over had four groves dug into it. Pretty uneffective pump by that time.

The other was my carb, which has been rebuilt by the studly Micheal Mayben. It works better then when I first recieved it new. But I'll be running my backup carb, a 470cfm Holley TA. Should work like FI, but I'll test before the Con.

All this resulted in serious baby-sittage apparently.

Can't wait to Con test the Ram-assisted Steering.

Good chance I'll be coming. Be hitching a ride as I'm not quite ready to induce rock rash on to my Scout.

TORC, are you still leaving on the 12th? Also are you taking I-70? If so, how about making a stop in Hays, Ks, so I can get a before look at your rig. Just a thought.

Man, I wish I could make this trip. My wife's due date is that weekend, so I don't think I can get a hall pass signed. But I guess maybe this year's trip isn't for first-timers anyway. Wouldn't want my "show queen" to slow down the trip or get used as an obstacle.

Hey Jeff, any chance you and your bros might be going through later this year?

If they do come up for a run I'll let you know.

Date Verification of Con Run

I'm getting conflicting info as to what weekend the run is. In the start of this thread it was mentioned that the run will be the weekend of 16-18 but I was chatting with Rock Tractor yesterday and he told me the run was the 9-11.

So what weekend is it?????

Thanks.

Affermative... leaving the 12th.

Coming back on I-70 from Colorado though.

That would be good to know.... I'm operating under the impression that it is the 16th-18th.

I bring the suck

Well, plans for my attendance have always been somewhat tentative, as the guy I work with is expecting his second baby. The baby was to be born (C-section) on the 12th of Sept, and after I discussed it with him and his wife it appeard he could be back to work the friday before the monday following, so I could go on the trip. Well the latest word is at the soonest the baby is to be born 13th, but more then likely the 15th. This puts me up a crick as we both can't be gone at the same time, one of the fall backs of working for a small company . He has had the time off for a quite a while, and everything was hinging on when the baby would be born, I guess I lose.

I feel like I am going to be missing a great, once in a life time trip, with all you. Keep it fun and have a great time!!

Cool deal. Works better for me anyway. I was chatting with my brother Mike earlier in the day. Said he was having Con' withdrawals as its been a few years since he's run the trail. Good chance he might drive up for the run.
