got everything buttoned up



here is the switch panel wiring



and the power distribution panel.



over all turned out really nice and I'm happy to have everything cleaned up and easy to trace and trouble shoot if anything comes up.

went out an ran fortune creek today with a few friends from SAR, the trail is easy enough but steep and rocky most of the way.

we were on a nice relaxed schedule and took in the sights along the way.

stopped on this rock bar in the river to walk around, run the dog and kids and throw rocks in the river









moving further up the trail we got to enjoy another of the many water features



regrouping after a tricky wash out



rocks for days




one of the nice view in the avalanche shoot









the trail is open to the snow line, so we had to park and walk the rest of the way too the lake. we found a nice CJ at the top.



snow got thick here could have gotten through but would have been a pain and these trails your not allowed to run through snow.



looking back down the trail





nice stream running through the meadow





made it too the lake





group shot on the way down



looking back up from where we came

Had a great weekend out camping, went to the north east and camped on banks lake with some friends. hiked to some caves, visited dry falls, and steamboat rock.











then dry falls at sunset







view from our camp site



featuring the very long jet ski wake





then on the way home we stopped at grand coulee dam



ran some cool old roads, saw some great sites and camped with some great friends!

Project Search and Rescue

Finally got my new used diff cover on from my buddy. Had this for over a year sitting lol. Took some time to drill the cover for the locker fitting but it holds nearly a liter more fluid which will help keep the diff cooler!

Did my brother in laws truck too, his was really badly in need of some attention.

Built a rear a arm mount brace today, this will tie the 2 rear mounts together adding rigidity to the long travel suspension.

truck looks a lot less goofy now.
