North Shore Work Center has flush toilets, showers, and flat camping.

What do I need?
Any vehicle that can do a USFS-rated moderate trail (Stock XJ, okay. 2WD okay with tow points).
Bring gloves, a hat, and loppers. Please bring light long sleeve shirts for brush work. Closed toe shoe mandatory.

Please RSVP if you plan to attend so I can properly plan.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to seeing you on the 27th.

I put this on the calendar and my Wife has not removed it yet, so I could go, but I doubt the transfercase will be rebuilt by then... I haven't even cleared a place for it on the workbench. If someone is going by the southern end of 2N49 on their way up I could leave the Jetta there, or if someone is going back to the North Shore camp ground after I could park and maybe even camp there.

Anybody else interested in this? I'd love to get the 2N49C spur open on that day but I need your help to do it!

I'm in.

September 4th, 2015, 19:59
Three Varmints and I are planning to be there.

Gonna do my best to make this for at least 1 day, but it would be via 2n49.

September 5th, 2015, 09:08
im going to try and make it.

September 13th, 2015, 16:23
I will be there. I want to get that frippin' spur open too!!

Oh, and I will camp at the work center on Saturday night, as well...

I will be grilling burgers for the crew Sunday. Please confirm whether you're coming and if you're bringing any extra people along.


September 24th, 2015, 15:22
Me and the three Varmints are still planning to be there. Provided The Bride doesn't sneak out and snatch the ignition coil wire.

September 24th, 2015, 16:03
I will be there, solo. Karen is not quite up to BB again yet

I'll be camping Saturday night with the dogs, but unless someone has room for us in a Jeep we won't be able to help with the work. If there is room in a Jeep for us, I can eat 1 or 2 burgers. The dogs could eat 3 or 4 each but then get car sick and make a big mess, so no burgers for them.

September 25th, 2015, 17:40
I have room for one human in my Jeep , or one dog, but you've seen my Jeep. I don't have room for anything more than one additional person at the moment

Mark and I will be heading out tomorrow morning for the BBQ and plan on camping Saturday night to do AAT on Sunday.

The battery challenged Jeep made its way back home safe and sound.

Extra thanks to Carol and Sean for their help in finding a store with a battery, helping me find my way there and making sure I made it home.

This is a great group to be part of.

Thank you all.

Glad you made it home safe.
Is anyone missing half a Swaybar disconnect? Julio picked one up that managed to make it's way to my jeep.

Mine appears to be missing a bolt, but I don't think that's what you guys found.

FYI. Got that 4runner dragged off the trail....took him the whole way to his house, which wasn't very far.

Nice, John. I assumed you had either gotten him out or pushed him over the side!

Many thanks to Sean, Josh, Gianna, Genesee, Carol, Belinda, Mark, Dan, Julio, Ariana, Tom, Daniel, Aaron, David, John, and James. After the past two years it felt very satisfying to drive my Jeep into the clearing.

Plus, winching downed trees is fun. :D
