Default 40's Only 2017

Hey friends, it is high time we land on a few things for this years 2017 40's only run.

What: 40's ONLY... any 4X series Land Cruiser is welcome.

When:Sept 9th (unless Jeff Zepp wants to lead?)

Where: Argentine Pass (Open to Suggestions though, last two years were Bill Moore Lake, and Kingston Peak/Barbour Fork).

Meet up: 9am in Georgetown, not sure of a good meeting spot in Georgetown or is there a spot closer to the trail head?

Requirements: Good attitude, good working 40 series, and trail communication like a CB or HAM radio.

Suggestions:Get your 40 out on a good shake down run and see if any gremlins surface. Give the old girl a tune up, a fresh tank of gas, crawl underneath and snug down the bolts to spec! Do all this now, so that you have a little time to fix and tune things before the week of.

My Own 40's Drama: My 40 is giving me grief as I am trying desperately to still track down an ignition issue. Currently I have to bypass the ignition circuit to start the 40. That said, I might not be in condition to lead and or even attend, that is exciting isn't it.

What's still needed: To land on the details and start to get a head count as to how many rig will likely come. We've been averaging 15-20+ rigs.

What is REALLY needed: I don't like to limit this run but we could really use a few veterans to get out there and help everyone along. We really need a leader (if I can't make it) Mid-gunner and tail-gunner.

40s Only 2015

Dang....I scheduled our block party for that day. If I trusted I-70 I could probably do both, but no way I could count on being back by 4. Bummer

4pm could be doable but not guaranteed. this many 40s tend to move slower than the wagons.
