View Full Version : Retro Camping trip **-June 5-6-**

06-03-2010, 01:58 PM
When: Saturday/Sunday June 5-6, 2010
Where: Kenosha Pass summit.
What: Bring your 25 year or older rig out on a camping trip. Bonus points for period correct gear and attire!
Why: 'Cause I dig older equipment and camping. Why not do both at the same time?!

CB Channel 4
Ham 146.460
Meeting place: I'm going to try to be at the junction of 285 and 470 on the West side of town at 10:00am on Saturday I think there is a gas station on the North East corner.

I'm hoping to be in the day use area at the summit of Kenosha Pass at about 12:00.

We'll try to drive up the road to Twin Cone and use dispersed camping on the way. Scott Y. reports heavy snow on the trail, so we might end up camping somewhere else. Perhaps the gourp camping are at Kenosha Pass. Perhaps the overflow camping area near Jefferson Lake.

Problems? Try my mobile 303 803 4848.

I'll be the guy in the FSJ (Full Size Jeep) IF I can get it to start!

Meeting place may need slight revision per DaveinDenver's suggestion. Thanks, Dave.
I THINK The CB works in the Jeep, but It looks like it has a stick on the window antenna.

The HAM is working for sure.

Nice FSJ. Like those classics and there are built like tanks...

And the winch is ONLINE!
Transfer case and differential oil levels are...UNKNOWN.

I heard this is how the FSJ (Full size Jeep) guys prepare for trips anyway.

You get to the meeting point, then start doing repairs and if nothing broke on the way to the meeting point, you start doing maintenance.

The Jeep guys also record "first breakdown" on every trip report too.

I'm learning a lot!

So far, I'm on schedule to make it to the meeting points on time.
In the light of day, I'll check out the toolset I put together and then stop at harbor freight to get any Jeep tools I needed to perform the basic maintenance I didn't do.
;) Good times already!
