Re: Zus of KC Disney, Ok. Labor day

Here is a map of the area. It's actually in Langley, not Disney. And it's a little tricky to get to the first tim...

Re: 2014 Lj Meet?

Well, folks, there's your definitive answer on an official LJ10.com meet. That's why I deferred to Steve in my post. SuzukiTom and I are tentatively discussing a local get together in the Texas, Ks, Ok, Qrk. area. If anything comes of it, we'll post up in the afore mentioned "LJ Meets" category.Suzu...

Sorta "official". As long as Steve agrees. I ain't running the sunamabitch, tho (after last year). You deadbeats gonn...

Re: LJ 80 Samurai distributor swap

Works good, don't it? :D
That was one of those moments when I said "why won't this work?" and just tried it.

A super sweet mod for an LJ80 that really makes a difference.

Re: Zuks of KC - Moab, 2013

I also wanna thank Phil (Tweedy Bird) for the comradeship, running winch cable, helping with fixing mechanical issues, and picture tacking. He was an anchor on this trip. :D

And he's got one sweet little LJ81 that he beat up a bit on this trip.

Thanks, Phil.

CB radios:

ZoKC usually runs on channel 16. If that's too busy, we usually drop to 6. If that's too busy than we punt. Take this info for what it's worth. :D

Hey Tom.
I know I strong armed you into being trail leader, but how about we plan on doing "fins and things" on Monday. That's a nice, easy trail to get us started and don't take all day.

Then we kin get together Mon nite and plan further.

Huh?
