Made it home, You know driving from Willcox to Marana at 50 mph sure takes a long time. Don the guy that rode with me, said that is the best time he has ever had. So hats off to all that ran with us this weekend to convert yet another over to the jeep side. LOL

My sincere thank you to Randy and Candy and Rosie for tagging along behind me almost all the way home at whopping 50 mph to make sure I was safe. Things like that make me believe that there is still good people out there that still do nice things. THANK YOU.

Drag link was a little loose but everything else was tight. Gonna redo track bar bolts and weld in some washers on track bar mount.

Not a problem. It was interesting. I saw things going that slow that I had never seen before!

And thanks Jim and all that had the right toold to help pull my axle shaft.. Upon baging it all apart, I belive it had been partially broken for a while.

As someone who has gone out alone and ill equiped much of my life (well I did make it this far) I continue to be impressed by ya'lls ability, prepardness and most importantly willingess to help each other out. Looking forward to getting home and seeing those photos......next time I'll drink my share of the tequila I promise....

Garmin Oregon 450T with the BaseCamp software to load Birdseye Satellite images.

should have saved money and got the 450 without topo maps. i then went crazy and ordered the north american disc with 24k scale topo maps and never use the 'factory' ones.

definitely overkill, i use it to record trips mostly. but if i ever do have to walk out of an idiotic moment it may be helpful to find shortest routes.
