View Full Version : Gilmer Run this Spring anyone.
02-18-2003, 02:00 PM
Any tx guys/gals want to make it a weekend at Gilmer in the next few months. Not sure of my schedule but I was thinking I would head out friday night and camp for the weekend. It would be great to all get together again and do some wheelin.
I'm going to be getting my lift next month. I'd be up for breaking it in late in March or sometime in April, depending on the weather.

Keep us informed on the plans. I have NO CLUE about anything right now - who I'll be working for, where I'll be working, IF I'll be working - so to say anything in the positive would be like the kiss of death.
02-19-2003, 01:01 PM
I might be up for it also. Just depends on when.
02-19-2003, 01:54 PM
Might could do it.
02-20-2003, 01:11 PM
I hate to wait that long but my wife and I are expecting another kiddo in mid April. Ooops it slipped my mind.....when I started the thread. So does anyone have any objection to May???? Does not seem like spring though? But it should not be too hot.

At least for now, count me in. Got the Chero back together, and will try it on the highway this weekend on the way to my new bumper.
02-21-2003, 02:31 PM
This sounds great..I will look at the calendar and see what weekends I am off so we can choose a date that everyone can make. Oh and I will probably bring my son for his first real wheelin trip!!!

I'm looking forward to meeting you guys and trying out my lift, waiting on some new wheels for the 33"s I got right now. Looks funny on the 30" a/t's. Do we have any dates yet?
My club is making a run on the last weekend of this month. I'll be out there camping and wheeling. Now that our huge annual run is done I'll have time to devote to chasing the gremlins out of my waggy.
03-05-2003, 12:09 PM
Derf, you can't chase all of them out, that's taboo. gotta leave at least one in!!

At the very least, I need to see if any of my plugs are fouled and that the plug wires are still good. It feels like there's a consistent miss and I'm running way rich, even after tuning the idle.

How would the weekend of May 17th sound...is that too late in May?
03-06-2003, 10:27 PM
17th works for me! I'm looking forward to it.
03-07-2003, 12:36 PM
Great, Sounds like May 17th
03-08-2003, 04:52 AM

Turns out my club decided to have a run the same weekend. We'll have plenty of room at our club campsite. It's off the Linda Gail Trail, just behind Twister.

04-13-2003, 02:59 PM
We will probably meet you there Roy. I think Cole Trickle gets off the am on Saturday.
04-14-2003, 05:27 AM
Yeah Derf, I agree with ya' I wouldn't mind going out Fri. night either to camp. Michael is right I won't be getting off until that Sat. morning.
Michael it doesn't bother me if you want to leave earlier. I could meet y'all out there either way that Sat. ;)
BTW...Michael, thanks for the e-mail you sent over that QT stuff. Now I just need to find the time to do it...
04-14-2003, 08:07 AM

04-16-2003, 02:44 PM
Hey Pascal...boy if you could get that done that would be a treat to see.
Cole. Hope the emails help some. I pulled my axles Monday. Installed the bearings...just have not had the time to reinstall.
With my son going and Dustin from Oklahoma is coming in Friday night.. So Saturday is great for me.
04-17-2003, 11:49 AM

As far as channel, we should be on 4.
When you get there, ask for directions to the DFW TX4WD campsite. It's near the end of the Linda Gail trail that comes out near Twister. There's plenty of parking and I'll be camping there that night. We may as well meet there.
04-25-2003, 06:18 AM
thanks for the info derf now all we need do when we get to gilmer is find a place to switch tires on the beast then well be out looking forward to a lot of good wheeling

04-25-2003, 02:15 PM
If all goes as planned Cole,Dustin, and I should be there around 10am-11am maybe earlier. Do you want to meet us somewhere Lindel?
04-28-2003, 06:27 AM

05-03-2003, 03:55 PM
05-07-2003, 07:22 AM

05-12-2003, 02:21 PM
05-13-2003, 12:34 AM
Even tho it's looking more and more like I won't be there, there's supposed to be a lunar eclipse this weekend (15/16).
For those that might be interested.
05-13-2003, 03:23 AM
I'm going to be there this sat who elese for sure is going to make it hate to drive 5 hours and be the only one to show up
05-13-2003, 02:00 PM
I will, Coletrickle, Derf, and hopefully Turtlejoe. See you then. Coletrickle and I should be there around 10:30.
05-14-2003, 10:20 AM
I wanted to go, but my jeep only wants to go back the transmission shop.
05-14-2003, 12:17 PM
Man Ranger what is going on with that thing? I sure wish you could make it.....
05-14-2003, 02:25 PM
I'm a bust Michael. Sent you an email with the details, but it's just not going to happen. Things to do to fix the Chero are better than using the extinguisher under the dash LOL.
Sorry guys, have a great time, take pictures and don't break anything.
:mad: :mad: :(
05-14-2003, 02:36 PM
