I guess I'm leaving about 5am tomorrow. At least we won't have problems finding each other.

I talked to Johnny Brown. There was a slip of paper we did not get or see or something. It goes on about another measurement with internal spacers and the cross pin. The Lockright was too tight in that shaft alignment and we broke it. Broke it good. One of the holes for the springs busted out and the 4 pins were chaffed pretty bad. Johnny Brown says it can shear the 4 pins off with too tight fit. The measurements on the Detroit EZ Locker was much more to spec based on the Lockright doco. The EZ has crap doco because it contain no directions for the tolerances to check. The EZ works like a frakking champ. Churned it 3 wheelin in red rock sandy creek bottom. Got the electric fuel pump set up and new filters. Fixed breather tubes for rear axle. Idled it up a little for off camber. Brakes checked out good. She is loaded on the trailer behind the F350 and sitting out front ready to take off. Gonna be strokin' it to get out by 6:30-7:00 for Moab. I expect 9-9:30 arrival.

I am beat up but smiling all the way. The magic rain locker is calling me...

after getting most of the AZ house stuff done got Kens camper over to Moab
but not at usual spot. Guess they are cracking down on where you camp so managed to find a site further in on Mill Canyon road, kinda. That spot at tree is on private land so went up the road a bit, drive up to Mill Canyon turn off but don't go that way, continue on to Halfway Stage Station turn off but don't go that way either, then there is a small dip and just as you start up the little climb from the dip turn left to our new camp spot.
Would haave gotten back soon enough to get jeep loaded and back over there but had some problems with the camper on the way so made it back to GJ about 1115 pm and too tired to load up. Will hit it early I hope and be over there by 8-9 so will meet all in town if I can. You all know what this heap looks like.
had to herd the cows away but it is marked for camping not cowing.
