Put on your racing pants (underneath your cold weather gear).

Since it is most likely going to be cold and uncomfortable outside, I figured some 4 wheeled indoor action would be fun.

So, the Meet and Greet for January will be at Veloce indoor speedway!
January 21st at 2pm.

They do not have food services, so prepare accordingly.  Or maybe we can meet at Chipotle beforehand since they are right across the street.

Check their website for pricing and pertinent info.

Jeep Talk / Mysterious leak
« on: November 13, 2016, 03:16:42 PM »
I seem to have a mysterious leak... Rear driver's side.  Rick noticed the streaks on my rear tire yesterday and pointed it out.
I thought it was brake fluid.. but the caliper doesn't seem to be leaking anything that I can find.  Could differential fluid be moving down the axle and coming through the bearing? 

I am at a loss.

Member Events / Cleanup squad, post Veteran's day Parade
« on: November 11, 2016, 06:52:00 PM »
Scoutboater and I are going to meet tomorrow morning around 10am to do a little post-parade cleanup.

He mentioned  that folks left a bunch of trash laying around, so he thought it would be a good idea to help with a bit of cleanup.

So, if you can make it with this short notice, lets meet at the Lewter's Hardware lot at 10am tomorrow with some trash bags and help out.

Figured I'd start a thread on TWD.  Not sure how many folks here watch it... I do!

As is stated in the title... THERE WILL BE SPOILERS POSTED IN HERE.  IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED THE LATEST, AND DON'T WANT TO FIND OUT SECOND HAND WHAT HAPPENED... DON'T LOOK IN HERE.

You have been warned.  Pull up your big boy/big girl panties, and hold on!

Jeep Talk / Soft top retaining straps
« on: October 20, 2016, 10:42:59 AM »
It seems that there are two straps that go from the rear soft top bow to the forward one, just above and along the rear zip windows.  They are about 3" wide webbing straps.
Well... as I was putting my top up last night, BOTH of them ripped  :'(

The material actually ripped just short of the attachment point on the forward bow.  I didn't put any undo stress on them as I was putting the top up.

Guess I'll have to get some stronger webbing to replace them with.

Off Topic / Planning a road trip for next year
« on: September 30, 2016, 09:31:43 AM »
I started thinking about what we are going to do for next year's fall break...

I think I want to take a road trip out to the mid-west to see either the Grand Canyon, or go to Moab, UT... Driving out there will restrict it to just one location.

I am looking into renting an overland type trailer/camper for the trek.

Have any of you folks ever embarked on a journey like this?  If so, any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Member Events / Rocket City Wrangers Range day?
« on: September 18, 2016, 10:47:58 PM »
I was thinking a range day might be fun.
Not sure when, but since the weather is getting nicer, and I like shooting stuff, maybe we should do it.

Skyline WMA range is usually not crowded and has 2 ranges, one 50 yard and one 200 yard.

The only requirement is that if you go, you have to have a valid WMA licence (hunting, fishing, etc.).  You can pick one up at any sports store, or online, or wal mart.  I have never had a ranger ask for mine.. but if you are shooting and you don't have one, the penalties can be pretty severe.
