Annual Wyoming Trip
I am preparing now for our annual camp trip to the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. It has been too long since I have gotten out of Phoenix, but this last weekend I went to Crown King in the new Wrangler Rubicon.
Speaking of which, I broke down and replaced my wife's Passat with a Rubicon Unlimited. It is my dream car and while she was not super stoked about having another vehicle I would take out and beat the crap out of, after driving it for a while, she loves it too.
I went to Crown King via Lake Pleasant this last weekend and incurred some minor damage underneath, the first thing being tearing the Evap Canister off on a large rock. I am in the process of adding skid plates, etc., and of course I went off roading before it was build up right.
Anyway, super stoked about camping. Looking forward to ski season. Got out of Phoenix this weekend which was cool.
Sorry to neglect my baby of a blog, but geez I have been busy and it is not ski season. This season will be far better.

The Rubicon is the vehicle you want when up in the mountains. I do allot of off road here in Colorado with my cherried out '73 CJ-5. Yes you have got to get skid plates, definitely. Its a bummer when you scrape something off the bottom like that. I about tore my whole tank off this last winter when up on a trail in the Vail Valley. I had to stay overnight and I stayed at the East West Resort at Bachelor Gulch. Although I had to have a serious repair job, I loved the stay. Check it out. http://www.eastwestbachelorgulch.com
