    Rimrocker and Kokopellis Trails June 2020

    This shot is of some great Native American rock art which we viewed after running Kokopellis. Ace showed some of the Petroglyphs there. This is some of the Pictographs that reminded me of the rock art in Horseshoe Canyon near The Maze. This is a picture of some information on the...

    Rimrocker and Kokopellis Trails June 2020

    Okay, it is my turn to show some pictures. Ace has already described our adventure and don't have much to add to that. I always like to show wild flowers and will start with that. Ace said the wild flowers were not as showy this year, but I think they were still pretty good. This shot is of...

    Rimrocker and Kokopellis Trails June 2020

    I have to watch out for that. My computer likes to convert 'It' to 'I'. I also have too many thumbs on my hands.

    Rimrocker and Kokopellis Trails June 2020

    Tom, the leak occurred in the Schrader valve. It had small leak in the valve itself but after tightening there was still a slow leak somewhere else. Once we started down the road the leak got worse. It turned out the brass body of the Schrader valve was cracked and it broke off in George's...

    Skinny vs wide tires pros/cons

    I have raced in SCCA for over 30 years. It is pretty well known in the racing community that wider tires reduce top end speed on the straights while increasing cornering speeds in general. The common belief for reduction in top end speed with wider tires is not aero but it is due to the tires...

    Skinny vs wide tires pros/cons

    I switch back and forth between 31" and 33" tires a couple times a year because the 31s are my street tires and the 33s are my off-road tires. They are both 10.5" wide and I get better gas mileage with the 33" tires than with the 31" tires. The reason is; the gearing is set up for the 33"...

    ROFs Do Death Valley 2019

    Ace, Was that trail up to Cerro Gordo the same one we tried to take years earlier? If so, I hope it was in better condition.

    Perfect off-highway tire = LTX? What?

    I agree with Tom 100%. The drawback is needing a space to store the extra set of wheels/tires when they are not being used and the time and effort it takes to change them. It works for me for now but I think when my LTXs wear out this time I may be looking for some AT tires again even if it is...

    The Maze ROF trip 9/19

    Thanks Dan. Ace, don't worry about my head swelling. My contribution to the trip was minimal. I think going to The Maze and the people on the trip is what made it so good. We also had some luck on our side. Believe me, I had no visions that allowed me to pick the right people. Things just...

    Tea

    I am not an expert in tea but normally drink it instead of coffee. I like it unsweetened hot or cold. I have tried many teas and like most of them but my favorite is Good Earth Sweet and Spicy. It has no sweetener but is naturally slightly sweet tasting from the blend in it. I also like...

    The Maze ROF trip 9/19

    I wondered exactly where that photo of me was taken. I knew it had to be near the Icebox but did not realize you took it from inside the Icebox.

    Thanks for the humor Tom.

    The Maze ROF trip 9/19

    Tom, you summed it up very nicely and I could not agree with you more. The only person I knew before the trip was Ace, but through the communications we had in preparation for the trip, I had a feeling we were all going to get along well. It turned out better than I even hoped for. I was...

    The Maze ROF trip 9/19

    Yes, Phil had a very organized arrangement for his 80 series Landcruiser. Tom's 80 was set up very nice too.
