Default Post Thanksgiving day Run 11/23-Old Chinaman Gulch

Friday November 23rd.

Lets plan to leave the Gunsmoke Truckstop in Johnson Village on HWY 285 at about 9:30am. This is 2 hours from Denver so plan to leave early. Air down, fuel up etc. at the truck stop, so we can get going.

Bring tools and spare parts in additional to the standard supplys in case the rocks find a weak spot on your rig.

Armor, skid plates and skill will be your best defense for this trail, it's easy to get into trouble on the optional obstacles (which I usually do). It's tons of fun, pleanty of technical spots to test driver skill to make you either look like a superstar or chump.

I might be able to make that. It will be the shakedown offroad run for the rebuilt Chili. I'm sure I will find some 'opportunities', as they say in software...

Hmmm - my pops will be here. Maybe he'd like to come along to OCG and leave the ladies to the after Thanksgiving retail zoo.

A possibility for us as well, Scott. I'm in the middle of swapping in an Extreme A440F and a new, low stall speed torque converter, as well as rebuilding the transfer case in the 62. If all goes well and according to plan, we'd like to join you.

Maybe...

Definitely in the "want to" box that is full of things that I want to do. The "in" port is much larger than the "out"

Scott,
Got the new tranny and torque converter in today with mucho help from Dean Baranski. We both learned a bunch and Bart's that much closer to being ready for a shakedown cruise to Chinaman's. T-case rebuild and reinstall are still in the offing but that should happen without fail. Dean might be up for the run too.

Just heard from a long term forecaster that this Thanksgiving is suppose to be the coldest and snowest on record. But what do they know.
