Still hot as a motha fucker out but I cant help but think we are getting close to off road season. That might be because my boat has been being a bitch but oh well.

So anyone have anything new for the season? Any trips planned?

I will probably hit johnson valley end of September early October and then Dumont for the big Halloween event followed up by Veterans event in mother G.

New Tensors in the garage.
Can Am will be out of the trailer in the garage later this week for preseason service.
First big trip already booked for the end of Sept. Beginning of October.

I am in the same boat as you, my boat is broke and my season is done. Looking forward to some cooler weather and desert trips but still not ready to be done boating.

Hoping to plan a few trips to Glamis this season and trying some new places.

Yeah I am not wanting to be done boating yet either. All though I wouldn't mind it cooling down a little.

What happened to you boat?

I lost a lifter while we were out over the 4th and it damaged the cam. Low compression in 2 cylinders also. Time for a rebuild!

No big rides scheduled yet. Picked up new wheels/tires at the end of last season. Need to do the annual service and dial in a radio gremlin..

Meanwhile waiting for my El Jefe to show up, there's a new destination ride spot bar/restaurant being built out in the desert. I can't say much more than that, except it will also eventually have cabins and wagons to stay in overnight.

That prep works starts in Sept. The list is long and hope I am done before mid October when the ToyHauler comes home from the Islander.
Daughters quad - needs a full service
Wife’s quad - leaking oil from drain plug (purchased used and after first oil change it has a leak - looks like old owner over tighten the drain plug and stripped the threads in the block :(
My Jeep - new coils, front sway-bar end-links need to be replaced, rear diff is leaking (rock won) and new front bump stops.

all I need is time in the garage. slightly worried about the wife quad and stripped drain plug repair (need to research options) and my Jeep’s diff (Hoping new diff cover and seal resolves that issue).

What happened to the toon?

Mine had a slight power steering leak / seepage when I first got it in 2017, but it’s been flawless ever since!

Can’t wait to go riding this season. Last years season was cancelled when our Truck & Toyhauler were stolen right before Halloween. 🤬

Finally picked up our replacement trailer last month and just put a deposit on a Turbo S 4 Seater to replace our XP1K

I’ll be there. What did you end up with? Pro XP?

There is stuff I could use, but nothing I “need”.

I have the GPS, intercom, radio, lights and mirrors ready to go on the new car whenever I get it 😂.

If there are deals on new Lowrance GPS units I may get the new Elite FS 7 and sell the Elite 7 TI 2 I have now.

We’ll be camping in Spangler this 25th for a week.
Trona Rd 5.1 miles East of the 395.
Plenty of easy camping room.

Pinnacles run, The Joint, and the SxS race and Husky monument.

I really need to find a new motorhome since I sold mine 2 months ago lol

Sandcar: Need to have new tailpipes made after the turbos so it doesn't spit black condensation / soot mix all over the rear engine cage, fix a small coolant leak on the water pump intake fitting, change fluids, fix / recalibrate shift indicator and should be ready to go. Technically just needs fluids changed to be ready to go, but I'd like to get the other little issues taken care of.

LT80: needs to be rebuilt, I need to pull the motor and ship it to a guy back east that rebuilds these things into little rockets.

TRX250, trailer etc is all good to go. If I don't find a new motorhome, I might need to rent for a few trips or so.

You want pics of all the parts that are piling up on my garage floor, cuz that's all I got so far.

The new norm of everything on backorder and placing orders for things to come in 6-12 weeks is worse that waiting for gel coat to dry in a mold.

all my dirt toys are back in project stage. not really a major focus in life to go out this season. sandcar is getting major overhaul and remodel, lots of fabwork, new twinturbo LS build for it, interior, paint etc. got a 88 trx250r im slowly accumulating parts for for a full custom build. maybe desert/glamis season 2022 for me. sold my toyhauler last year, and working on a plan for a much smaller scaled down simpler program for camping and getting my shit to the desert.
