    Okay,

    This sounds like a trip for me!
    How many trucks are going, where are we meeting, and do you mind if I bring my camera along?
    We need more full-size trail action for our pages so this could be perfect for me. I'll be out of the office for the weekend, but let me know what the date, time, and place are going to be, and I'll shoot it for a three page story in the magazine.

    Thanks,
    David Kennedy

    Yes, you are most welcome!! I have wanted to see more full size trail action in the magazines for a long time! This would be great! How sweet would that be to get my monthly magazine and see my truck in there!!?? I have several good pics that I have wanted to send in to the magazine, maybe get into Readers Rides or something.

    As of right now, it looks like we are between the 20th and the 27th...seems like more people are leaning towards the 27th, but we will see. Sounds like we will be meeting at the Walmart in Highland at 7:30-8:00 on either of those Saturday mornings. Last time I checked with Blazen91 he said that we had 5 confirmed, but I am sure more will be able to go on the 27th, should be a decent sized group!

    Kewl deal with the full size coverage! Hay why not plan to come out east for Dixie Run at Tellico late sept early October? Us southern boys like big trucks. www.sfwda.org will have the details.
    Also If you haven't read the latest United Voice a few guys form are area are planning on a month long trek across the country hitting every 4x4 Meca on the way ending in Moab. One of the Guys is a driving a K5. Last time I saw this K5 it was on 44's. I also awarded it Most Dents at the Southern Summer convention 2 years ago. The other a Scout and the last is a Dakota all on +35 inch tires. Some people go to Europe after finnishing school these guys are going Wheeling. This is mid May to Mid June.

    I am planning on going, but the k5 is still without a t-case, so I can't say for sure.

    THIS IS COOL!
    Steve- I don't have one on the wind sheild, because toybox off road fills that spot. But I have one on my light bar on the front and one on the gas can on back.

    Have we decided on the 20 or 27th yet?

    Sweet, I don't work that day! As long as the funds hold up and the Marines don't give me something else to do, can I still come?
    Can someone tell me how to get to that parking lot in Highland? I'm coming from MCAS Miramar in northern San Diego. Thanks.

    Take the 15 north to the 10 west to the 30 north. When you see the 330 turn off to Running Springs, go north to the Highland off ramp and turn left. You can't miss it. It is right at the end of Boulder. I'm not 100% it's a Walmart, but it is a shopping center.

    This sounds great. I checked my calander and am free for both dates so just let me know and I'll be there. Maybe we will see my bone stock 70 in the mag........LOL I am sure there will be other K5's that will be more picture worthy, But I am still there for the fun and friends.............. I think I need to order a sticker pretty damn soon to get it on by then, you think? Got to go get the old K5 all ready for the big trip. See ya.

    If any one else is coming please let us know. The weather is cooling off, so might get a little snow[​IMG]. I posted an url of a map above. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me.
    One other thing is that the San Bernardino Forest Department requires a forest pass on all vehicles that are stopped. I am sure we all be stopped at one time or another. The passes are $10 for the day or $30 for 12 months. I went one time without one and got caught and the fine was $10 (the price of the pass) As long as I did it within 15 days of the ticket. So if you want to chance it, you can, but I suggest getting the pass.

    I just bought Adventure Passes before the New Years holiday, mine were $5 each?? Maybe they upped the price...but I saw a few Rangers out there, so it is smart to get one, plus it helps them keep the trails open. Places like Sport Chalet and some other stores carry them, so you can get them in advance, that would be the easiest. I am confirmed for the 27th, and I will most likely have my brother come also in his CJ5. We might be going up this weekend to do some snow runs, if we do, I will let you know.

    Also, YES, it is a Walmart there when you get off at Highland. It is right at the base of the mountains, so if you start going up you have gone too far. Just turn left onto Highland Ave and you will run right into it. Also a Burger King and some other shops there...

    The price of $10 was back in Nov. Maybe they came down, I don't know.

    If any one who does not have a pass, needs me to get them one, let me know. I can get them, but make sure you show, because they are not returnable.

    I just wanted to say that I have my ColoradoK5.com stickers ordered and am trying to get the 31 year old K5 as ready for the mountians as I can with the limited funds available. You guys don't mind helping a stocker along if he needs it do you?
    This is going to be fun.
