Re: Wild West 2016 (Come explore some ghost towns with us)

There's a huge difference between a guy that is an active part of this community and one who is just here to sell stuff. Nick is an FJ guy who likes to go on runs/ lead runs, who just happens to sell stuff too. Have not made it on one of your runs yet but I will. Nick also is great about answering questions on gear, how to installs etc, even if its an item he does not sell. We need more Nicks on this site!

Man I need to make this trip one of these years. Unfortunately it falls around exam week for school so that's a no go. Only one more year of school left though!

Bummer man! We are going to move it back one week next year so as not to fall on Mother's Day. We missed that this year when we set the date.

Just made it home after an awesome adventure to Nevada and back. Put a total of 2683 miles on the FJ! Thanks for the great drive and the unforgettable memories Nick! Will post some pics after I get them all sorted out.

Just blocked my work Outlook calendar. Since Tioga Road won't likely be open, I blocked for a couple days before and after. I'll be itching for a trail after a winter.
