Re: Wilson gets a new tag

Have seen Smuz look like this :D after a few beers and like this :pissed: after a few too many. Saw Alice look like this :shock: one time. It was at the Waipaous Alberta meet after Wilson topped a very steep climb. The :shock: came when Wilson flattened out for about 3 feet and then did an even ste...

Re: Somebody say something !

In Washington, all hard alcohol was sold through state-owned liquor stores until a ballot measure was passed a couple of years ago (I-1183), allowing other retail stores to sell it. The primary sponsor and contributor to the campaign was... you guessed it... Costco. They contributed nearly $21 milli...

Re: Somebody say something !

...we paid our very first visit to a COSCO store. Ha! Count yourself lucky Larry; we go there at least every month, and are happy if we get out of there spending less than $200. Of course, having two growing teenagers in the house, being able to buy in bulk does come in handy! The Costco we go to i...

Nice pics Larry! It was much cooler around here, mid 60's Sunday and 70's Monday.

I suggest the people in the white camo Samurai put in a rollcage before putting their kids in the backseat; hopefully they were really careful climbing those rocks!

Re: Zuks of KC Disney, Ok. Labor day

After being in the 80's and 90's the last month and a half, we're finally getting some more seasonal weather here - mid 70's to low 80's, and cooling off nicely at night. When I got up this morning it was 48* outside (9*C).

Glad to see Joe and Dana on here! They're a great couple with a great little shop, and a really nice LJ81 (which used to be Pidder's). I'm planning to stop by; haven't decided which LJ to bring down yet.

Sounds like a great trip, sorry the road closures detoured you. The north road through Yellowstone to Cooke City is kept open all year because it is the easiest route to Cooke City to keep open. Beartooth Pass is spectacular - I loved that drive, even with the truck/camper/trailer combo heating up t...

Not really doing the "official" LJ meets anymore, since there hasn't been much interest. :-( I've moved the "Suzuki Meets" topic to the top of this section, so that anyone organizing a meet/trail run can post up there, and it should be easier to find.

Re: LJ80 birfields replacements

I have a very hard time believing it is the same as a Suzuki Swift CV joint. The Swift is the same as a Geo Metro, which are still plentiful in North America, so it shouldn't be too hard to look at one.

Re: Date, Location

If anyone is interested, I usually plan a trip up to Tucquala Lake in August. There are about 10-15 miles of 4WD trails up there with alpne lakes, old mines, and great views. The trails aren't terribly hard - a stock rig will be challenged, but can make it (I've taken stock LJ's up there before.) Yo...

We'll also have a meteor shower run in August, and a Labor Day weekend run. We can plan a more formal LJ meet if there is e...
