You won't be holding nobody up. Hell, your LJ is faster than my Samurai anyway.
Tweedy might be bringing his 20, if he don't get the 80 finished.

Getting the purple pig ready to go.

Re: Zuks of KC - Moab, 2013

Really sorry to see that the Myers can't make it, Nancy and I were looking forward to seeing them again :-( On a entirely different note, does everyone have their copy of "Moab, UT Backroads & 4-wheel Drive Trails" at the ready? Since we'll be bring the Lj, our trail leading options will be limited...

Re: Zuks of KC - Moab, 2013

Hey do we have exact dates yet? I know it is the 3rd week of Sept (14-22) but need to know exact dates as my schedule is that that flexible. Again I am best toward the end as I stated. Let me know so I can try to work this out. Thanks Our plan, at this time, is to leave the morning of Saturday, Sep...

Re: Zuks of KC - Moab, 2013

OK. Right now I'm gonna say the 3rd week in September, 14-22. Unless somebody comes up w/ a damn good reason I should change my mind. The weather should be in the low 80's in the day and the high 50's/low 60's at night. So, barring further info, that's the date. Sorry about waiting so long to firm t...

Re: Oil change

Long time ago bought a 1963 IHC tractor to convert into a dump. Navy surplus. Went after parts and the dealer asked to see my build list. Had never heard of such but he told me who to call. Made the call, gave the guy the serial numbers, he found the original list in just a second, told me the info...

Re: The connection between Twinkies and my first LJ

Cool story, Larry. Guess you could have called the LJ "Twinkie" with some justification. I remember when we were in Disney and Russ's LJ was broke on the river bed past lunch time. I was hungry and complaining about it in a loud shrill voice. Your wife, Winnie, took pity on me and gave me a Twinkie....

Keep talking people. We're still hashing out on ZoKC. When we get sumpin finalized, I'll star a new thread. But we wanna take your input too. We're talking about dates, now. Choosing between: 1. Second week in Sept. 2. Third week in Sept. 3. Fourth week in Sept. 4. First week in Oct. 5. Second week ...

Re: Date, Location

I think lj meets should be a group plan not just a one person decision. Ideally, that's true. Realistically, you can't get more than 3 people to even agree when to have lunch, much less plan sumpin like a meet. It normally all comes down to one person taking the bull by the tail, facing the situati...

Huh. It just so happens that ZuksOfKC has been in the planning stages of a trip to Moab around the last of Sept/early Oct of 2013. We just could make it a combo ZOKC/LJ10 meet. We got 5 Samurai's sorta commited. And we're looking at a full week there. Whaddaya'll think? Caveat #1: I'll have my Samur...

Well, for those that are interested, here's the vids of me in the comp. They're pretty painful to watch, esp. course 1. I really screwed the pooch in this comp. And my spotter (Mel) REALLY needs to let me start turning sooner to save on 1 point reverses. And I actually finished 3rd from last in 7th ...

And I'm taking off for the Crawl Comp tomorrow, wish me luck. Good luck! Well, that didn't work out as I'd hoped. I finished second to last. Got hung up on a bonus gate on the first course and DNF'd. That put me in a 40 point hole that I just couldn't recover from. Then I hit a gate on each of the ...
