    Did you text me Dan? If you did I never got it. There was a couple of times when we lost signal out there. Don't know if that's the reason.

    Allthe dirt road was us trying to get to the other entrance of the
    Hump but that didnt work out because it was chained off for what reason i have no idea. But then we just took that dirt road out to the main street.

    I'd imagine so.
    Corbett is rough from what I hear. Buddy of mine had to pull some people out on the trails.

    that could possibly work. but it depends on how that water is out there. i dont know if that is enough time for the water to actually go down.

    ozman and I are going to have to go check it out.

    Sounds good to me!

    I think so. We are entering the dry season. Count me in!

    Same here. Sunday.

    BTW, I want to try out my new BFG A/T's (275/70r17) that I just bought for my other FJ wheels. I am selling my other set of (5) FJ Wheels with GY MTR's that some of you saw at the pre-meet.

    Also, If you google map sw 360 st & 187 ave you can see a small spot that might be ok to check out while we are in the area. I've seen ATV's there & it's about a mile west of the Humps card Sound rd entrance.

    NICE! BTW, how did you clean your engine & engine bay?


    You could be right, this year has been exceptionally rainy. I'm in North Miami & it's raining here too.

    Water out there is like glue to the engine bay. Im trying this
    Stuff called simple green still hasnt worked so i may have to just
    Go with straight degreaser

    Saw this on a Jeep Forum:

    "Ok, so I finally got around to cleaning my engine. Here was what I did:

    a. Start with a cool or cold engine.
    b. Cover air intake and fuse box.
    c. Spray Gunk "Foamy Engine Cleaner"
    d. Drink a cold beverage and wait for five minutes.
    e. Spray off cleaner.
    f. Ran the engine for 15 minutes.
    g. Repeated this process again because it was only partially clean
    h. Then used simple green and elbow grease to go from pretty dirty to somewhat clean.
    I. Then put down some WD40.

    I think that if I had used Gunk the same day that I went mudding, then it would have done a better job. As it was....Gunk got the engine from really dirty to pretty dirty. Elbow grease and simple green got it from pretty dirty to somewhat clean"

    Hope this helps Nick. I washed mine as if I were washing the outside of the truck but after our next Hump meet & Citrus I'm gonna clean mine real good & detailed.
