We are hoping to spend some time exploring Little Finland. It all depends on the weather. On the pre-run, it was too hot for 'splorin.

Weather looks perfect for the 24th. High in the low 80's. Who could ask for anything more!

Very nice! We LOVE new people! Remember: John will be asking them to sign a release and asking for a $5.00 donation. The more the merrier!!!

hope to make this run. I'm not 100% sure but I think the ARCO in Glendale is cash only. Can anyone confirm (or deny) this.

Welcome Triath. Glad you can come! A CB radio is always a good thing. If not some one usually has a spare. Bring lunch and lots of water. Glad your coming!

Hello fellow backroaders and friends, this is Rauol, my family and I will be joining the Gold Butte run. It's been a little over a year since my last club run. My father passed away last year, so somethings in my life changed. But I restarted an old hobby that still kept me off roading; Mountain Biking, it's expensive, just like having a jeep. Looking forward in seeing friends and meeting new ones. I'll be in my red GMC badlander.

Sorry I wasn't there. The jeep is at Jim Marsh getting converted to Sahara Ver 2.0. Front axle assy being replaced with Dana 44 with lockers, new track bar, rod ends and bushings. Gear ratio being changed from 3.73 to 4.10. Rear axle being replaced with all new parts inside. The front axle housing was slightly bent at the ends causing the axle shaft to bind during any flexing so it had to be done. So, i took advantage of this to upgrade components because some items were covered under warranty. I will be taking it out to the Apex for testing to make sure everything works fine before the next trip in October. Hope to see ya'll then. Have a good day.

Thanks to everyone that made this trip a success! Tom knew the route and no one got lost! Great trip and I made on one gas stop at LOVE's truck stop to throw ten gallons into the old girl on the way home! Wasn't very tough on gas but I finally made the entire trip in two wheel mode! Thanks Tom and Dawn for a great trip!

Great run! (if I do say so myself, and of course... I do!) We had 15 rigs and zero breakdowns. The weather was perfect! Who could ask for more? I enjoyed leading with Dawn and I think everyone had fun. If not it's there own fault. Hope to see everyone next time.
