Glad y'all are ok. There is a reason for everything and I am glad that y'all are still with us.

I was going to PM y'all to ask how the engine ran. After the new cam install and long road trip. It's been awhile.

Hope y'all arrive back home safe and sound and find y'alls pooch

Glad you are alright - I am going to ensure to focus on the "safety" of all the things that I don't normally tie down in the cherokee after listening to how an "easy trail" turned dangerous.

I hope the pup returns.

glad ya'll are ok. I won't take my dogs with me anymore on trails as even when being careful and going slow, bad stuff can happen to the best and most experienced wheelers.

I hope ya'll find Luna, and please buy one of these if you or anyone else wheels with their dogs:

Glad you're ok, and I sure hope Luna shows up soon!

I love that the jeep drove away, that would have been adding insult to injury if it'd been DOA. Do keep us updated on how things go, please.

I think I might do a little safety inspection of my own the next time I think about going on trail.

Relieved to hear you're both fine. Concerned about Luna - hopefully she'll turn up soon and in good repair. If we can help in any way, please don't hesitate to ask. I'll PM our phone numbers just in case.

That really sucks - so lucky that you guys are all right. Good luck and recover well. Dogs are smart, she'll probably be back.

Good to hear you have all ten fingers and ten toes! Sorry to hear of the rolling - that can't be a good feeling. Hope Luna makes her way back to you as well...

Your Thanksgiving will have a little more 'thanks', I trust...

You don't need to ask them I got to drive it out of the Desert and to Ralph house holding the driver door shut with one arm and no mirrors.
It ran GREAT. I seen Flint on Sunday while we were hunting Luna and I ask Flint if that eng. had 85# of oil pressure and he stood there a couple of second and no, and I said good because it still does not have 85psi. that got a good laugh out of his.

I hope that bump on the head doesn't make Flint turn into a republican

Best wishes on a speedy and safe return with as much as you can get back here.

Yeah, let's be safe out there.

Sad day for Phoebe, eh?

Hope that the pup finds it's way back to you, sounds like you were near a population center, perhpas the pup will find it's way to civilization.

Drag a piece of clothing around the trails, the scent will be picked up by the dog and perhaps will help keep the pup in the area.

You can also drop off bits and pieces of unwashed stuff, kinda like a crumb trail.

Good luck finding the pup.

My wife suggested the same thing. Tear up some clothes and leave the pieces near the popular parts of the trail. Some would call that littering but this is kind of a special situation, the cloth will eventually deteriorate or be used by birds and such.

Heck, on the way out we found a STILL BURNING camp fire that someone left. They also left a pile of beer cans and cig packs.

And by the adobe house where Luna was last seen there are literally hundreds of emply shot gun shells and more piles of trash...
