#225557 Christmas Prospector Gifts, what did you get?

Posted by GlennM on 31 December 2013 - 12:06 AM

It already has some good pinstriping on it. I normally tell folks to roll up their window because I can't be bothered with missing limbs on the trail :^)
Plans: build a rack inside to better hold gear, selectable lockers front and rear, stronger axle shafts.
The tires are 35x12.50 BFG Mud Terrain KM2, and are about as big as you want to go on that front axle.

#225343 Headed to The Hammers next weekend...

Posted by GlennM on 27 December 2013 - 06:47 PM

Those that don't know, The Hammers is the Johnson Valley OHV Area between Yucca and Lucerne Valley in Commiefornia.
From my past reading, there is gold to be found in the northern areas of the place, and there was an active claim in there last time I looked.
While I am going for race car testing and tuning, I think I'll take along my ML and swing it over some not-often hit hillsides and washes while there. I shoukd be abke to cover some good ground by pushing the car between areas, no? 100mph in the desert goes by quick like :)

Nope... no bed for him to fill up with 3 tons of crap "just in case" :)
That and the approach/departure angles aren't negative values, so I would end up bashing it into things :)

My skim-reading take...
If these folks are (and this goes for nearly every state out there) not supposed to have guns, then they probably shouldn't. The convicted felons and dangerously mentally ill, for sure.
As for what we all know this will lead to... lock and load, brothers.

The fun part...
Mostly it's minorities committing a disproportionate amount of crimes (more often against one another). This means it will appear the cops are cracking down on minorities. Which the ACL.U is just chomping at the bit to go after, especially since the recent ruling against Joe Arpaio here in Maricopa County.
So, the cops will crack down to get guns out of the hands of those who are not legally allowed to have them. This will appear as some sort of profiling because those who are the majority offenders happen to also be minorities. Then some whiny-cry bitchy group will file suit. And the taxpayers are out even more to defend this crap. Repeat in perpetuity.
Crazy crazy crazy.

If I had that many snakes showing up, I'd be the proud owner of a mongoose!

#207543 Daughter finds her first gold nugget !

Posted by GlennM on 30 April 2013 - 06:07 AM

Very cool. my little girl loves going anywhere Daddy is going.
She's getting better and better at panning and she finds all sorts of stuff around the neighborhood with her little metal detector. She's so rambunctious that I'm fearful of letting her roam free in the desert (and mom would kill me if she got hurt)

Good on ya, man! And Congrats to the young'n on her first (of many) nuggs!! :)

I happen to own a Cummins wrapped in Dodge clothing... so I make a point of keeping tabs on what I put in the tank. And how the US EPA has done all they can to ruin my engine and fueling system.

Send a message to the tech guys at Marlin Crawler. They will know it, or get it to you.

#202151 "Ninja Detecting" Opinions?

Posted by GlennM on 07 February 2013 - 06:48 AM

I'll elaborate on my answer:
Is it wrong? I'm not entirely convinced it is. The land closures are part of an agenda to get all users out of the forests and on to pavement. It goes against the tenets of freedom. Do I go out and thrash the land, whether on foot or machine? Absolutely not.
Do I walk aimlessly in the desert? Absolutely.
Have I ever find myself in a place I shouldn't be? Absolutely, but not on purpose.
Has it stopped me from wandering aimlessly in the desert? Absolutely not.
Do I go places I shouldn't be on purpose? Nope.
Do I fight daily with labor and money to keep places open? You're GD right I do!!

Hopefully at least one of the amendments in the Bill of Rights still stands.
I plead the 5th.

#196882 Just got a quad

Posted by GlennM on 24 December 2012 - 06:06 AM

Just make sure you put some chains from the bottom of each ramp to some sort of attachment point on your truck. I can't tell how many times I've seen ramps shift or slip and tear up vehicles and people.
Most use a chain to the safety chain loops on a receiver. Just make sure that they're short enough to not let the ramp slide off. Make the chain adjustable at the ramp end for those uneven loading situations.
Another thing to consider: Your tailgate lines. If they're cable, might want to consider a solid bar method when loading. Most cables aren't meant to handle 500# repeatedly (if at all) - think weight of you + quad.
Just want you guys to stay safe out there.
