Yup. CH-46E helicopter. Its a pretty sweet gig and I can't complain even being here in Afghanistan. We are employed by the Department of State so they do a pretty good job of taking care of us. Plus I get to come home every 3 months for 21 days. Way better than the Marine Corps...

I do have some LED's under the Jeep that I use for rock lights.

Lucky you. I don't even remember the last time I drove my Jeep. I started a project on it and now it feels like its going to be on jack stands for at least a year and a half.

Change of plans...our friends with another jeep backed out. So, we are going to take the four wheelers out on some trails. Next best thing.
What project are you doing on your jeep?

Its just an on going project it feels like. I decided that I wanted to stretch the wheel base and next thing I know I've got a set of Dana 60's to throw under it. My end goal is 103" wheel base on 40's and coilovers.

Wow, that's getting pretty serious. I guess you need that to run the rocks in AR.

Not really in Arkansas, but I do like to take long extended camping trips out on some long trails across the country. I ran the Hammers out in Johnson's Valley in Cali and decided that I was going to build for those. I've got a trip planned for Moab at the end of next year.

I would love to run Moab. Mine is not built for it and I can never seem to get the vacation time for it.
I thought the park near ht springs was covered in rocks. Maybe that is not near you.

Yea Superlift OHV is next to me and it is covered with Rocks, but you really don't need to be on tons and 40's to run it. Its a fun time to run though. I'm looking forward to Moab, its been on my list to do for a long time.

We were going the next week because I am normally on call m-f. I am not that Monday and it's rare for me to have a three day weekend that I know I can leave town and not get called back. Maybe another time.
