Sugar Loaf/Four Peaks Trail Clean-up

This past Saturday I volunteered with some folks from work (Wells Fargo) to do some trash pick-up out in the Four Peaks area. We got out at about 7:30 am on a cold and rainy morning. The Forest Service had designated several bad areas that needed to be cleaned up and we picked one and jumped in. This is one of the popular shooting areas and it was a huge mess.

There just about 100 volunteers (15 from Wells Fargo) and we filled 2 60' roll-off dumpsters. I was truly amazing how much trash and junk was scattered across the desert. It was hard work but we managed to get in a full day. I am still sore.

It was a great day and now I want to run those trails.

New Tires On

I installed the new tires last week. I was originally planning to put them on after the lift was installed but that will not likely happen until the end of next month. They was too long to wait to put some miles on the new tires.

Swapping them out alone in the drive way turned out to be a bigger pain than I expected. My plan was to keep the stock tires and run them most of the time and then switch them out before a trip. That is still the plan but it is getting more likely the new tires will just stay on.

Between the new rack and the new tires the jeep is a lot more noisy. As you can imagine the noise is worse with the tops off. It sounds like a billion angry bees.

The Jeep drives great with the new tires and I think it looks amazing. I can't keep Kathy away from it.
