Sweet! Got all the times saved and the luggable loo is on the checklist. :p

I've got a few things I need to do to get the truck prepped before the trip. Do you guys have the Icon coilover spanner wrench at Findlay I could use? Need to raise up the front end now with the extra weight. Also, does anyone in the community do electrical work? I grabbed some HID headlights and don't think I did the install correctly. Only my high beams work. Then I just need to install my CB radio finally lol.

Hey Shag, just left you a voice message. I can borrow a spanner wrench from Rich so you can raise your front end. Also, one of our members is good with electrical stuff, check his user name, Ghostwhite.....PM him.

Yeah, I think so...unless all the good spots are taken, then perhaps Riley's camp or neighboring area. Are you thinking about visiting Sat. night?

Okay guys.........again, it's me being late to get shit up, but here's the meal planner......I'm just going to add it here, as no need for a separate thread at this point!!​



For those of you who haven't been on any of our Expeditions or trips with us and our NVTTORA club, or our Toyota120 group...this is how we do our meal planning. :D

Breakfast and dinner are pretty much the group meals, and everyone is pretty much on their own for lunch....although, we usually end up sharing leftovers from the night before! :lmao:

On this trip.....seeing that it's Easter and all....we do an Easter brunch. So, on Easter Sunday, we will have a buffet type of brunch. Easter staples and whatever else people want to bring (be creative (also be creative on dinners)). We've even had someone bring Champagne and orange juice to make Mimosas with!! That was a Great idea (in moderation), and was very cool!!

It's a great way to have a great dinning experience and get to know each other a little better.
You don't need to cook every meal either, again, works best with everyone doing a couple different meals, like we'll have appetizers, side dishes, Main dishes, deserts, drinks, booze, etc.....


For example....maybe I'll do a main dish one night, someone else will have appetizers, someone else will have side dishes, etc.....
Ed (VegasRunner) as always taken Breakfast on as his lone meal for the whole trip, and that has been awesome...as he actually make a shit load of bacon, and omelets to order!! Pretty cool!!
Anyway, you'll figure it out....again, this is for the people who Haven't been on our trips yet......everybody else.....just go to the next post now!! :p

Oh....we've always tried to be creative with our dishes as well.......typically, we don't do like the standard hot dogs and hamburger stuff......we usually get way more gourmetish (not really a word!!!) and have fun with it!!!


EDIT...........................................
What works best, is if we each bring and or cook generally enough for 6-8 persons. With the different items that everyone brings, this works great, and everyone gets a little of everything.
And, we Always end up with leftovers!!!

Awesome! I'll plan out what we can bring when my girlfriend gets home. I like this method. I was just about to plan all my own meals but I like sharing much better. I'll post again tonight. Are there any members with allergies or anything we should all be aware of?

Also, I've got a bunch of elk meat in the freezer if anyone would like me to bring some. I know not everyone is partial to game meat, but figured I'd ask.

Edit: Started a thread to figure out my CB install if anyone would like to chime in. Talked with Robert and I'll probably tackle it with him tomorrow, just need to figure out parts so I can run around and get them lol.

Thanks for your help yesterday........and hopefully you get an antenna and those end connectors so you can finish connecting to the battery.
And if the bracket doesn't come in time, you can always just stuff it in between the seat and the console, or something like that.

Well, damn!! Trip is canceled now! Some dispute between the NPS and BLM.......they fenced in the entire Mojave Preserve now, and there is no way in, and the NPS isn't messing around.....Especially if you try and enter from BLM land!! It's like the Hatfield's and the McCoy's....but different!!!
It's said that the NPS even has armed guards and Snipers at every entry point, including the Mojave Road!!! Yikes!!! I mean, we can try, but if we get shot at, that would suck!!! We can always just camp out on the BLM land I guess......
or, maybe we can go to the beach or something!!! :mad: :banghead:

Now I just have to upload them somewhere.....hopefully a site that isn't going to shut down in a few years! I don't want to post them on google anymore, I Hate how their site screws with every album I have posted!!! :mad:
