I talked to John last weekend, he told me he was about to get to it with yours. Promised me you'd be a happy man when done.

Psyched to see it finished.

Little Roo is speeding north bound in southern Utah as we speak. Talked with Mudrat about an hour ago. Little Roo is having some difficulty adjusting to the altitude and the grades, so the journey will be a little slower than expected. Roo should arrive in Salt Lake around Noon.

Looking forward to introducing Little Roo to Summer! I know they are going to talk about Moab plans!

Thats the latest on Little Roo's Big Adventure.

I lived in SLC for a year or so. Liked it cuz of the mountains so close, lots of passes to explore. I could drive to 11000 feet in an hour.
Left there with a really bad dislike for mormons/morons. Made a point of visiting the big chuch square to get the history straight from the morons themselves so I could make an honest opinion. Opinion being these people a complete suckers for believing the word of two brothers on *payote who say they ran into an angel in the woods. Read a good part of the book of moron while attending the ritual on Sunday morning, friggin crazy stuff in that book.
Went through the SLC phone book. There's more moron churches than 7/11s. . . Harsh.

*(my version, no other explanation)

But yeah, SLC is a great place to own a Subaru if you don't mind rust from the salt.

That's cool Zap, I saw a lot of things while on payote, but I never saw any angles, well at least none with wings. Looks like we agree on something else.

Mudrats headed north!

John blew out of SLC about sun down heading for Winemucca NV.
Little Roo is running much better now, seems to be adjusting to the altitude.

While Little Roo was visiting John welded the loop of her push bar. :wave: and also picked up a spare distributor ($11.99) from a local Junkyard. During the visit to the JY we saw a deer get hit by a car:burnout: . Mudrat wanted so bad, to strap her on Little Roo and make Stakes.:dead:

It was good to hook up with both of them. Mudrat is truly the "Guru of Subaru!" and Little Roo is certainly a capable ride in her current state.

The thought of the two of them together for a few weeks could be scary:slobber: {Monster Garage}

That the latest.....

deer steaks that sounds really good. :slobber: god how much i miss wild meat. we're supposed to go dove hunting this weekend. i'm an extreme amature at hunting though, cause no one else has brought me hunting. before here. i think i scared everything away. :-\


what was the spare disty for?? did it break??

so you approve of little roo in her current state? it's quite the little car. I like it.

:madder: wait till it gets done!! :madder:

Your're lucky all 5 tires left SLC!

What a great ride! Awasome Rig!

I love the looks we got going to the JY.
Everyone Looked/staired/gocked! We don't have these here! It's truly an eye catcher. Even the JY guys were gocking when we went away to get the parts.

Mudrat thought your disty may be on it's way out? Lack of power up through I-15. We got it just because the price was good and it only had 95k on it! Couldn't hurt for that price.

Love your GPS system,

Glenn,

hey email me all the picks you have of little roo and summer. i want to put them on my web page.

i don't know what i'd do w/out that gps now. it's helped me out of alot of places i shouldn't have been. ie making trails and getting stuck in a valley in the middle of nowhere. found the nearest roads and trails i've previously marked. and forged my way through hell till i wass in a place i could get out.

oh i love the looks! i get them everywhere. even in washington most of the residents still haven't seen one. i know they are an infestatiion up there. but still very few lifted. that look of what the f***, as they almost hit someone.

Here it's funny. cause most of them run the dunes only. :confused: so they have their hopped up jeeps and such reving the engine, like i'll have a chance in hell to beat them. most of them don't even realize alll the oppertunity for trails in the rocky hills here. they are all worried about my body damage too. are you gonna fix it so it looks nice. no!! every dent is one less place that i'll hit next time. i'm not an avid duner, my car is a trail rig, not a hammer down rig. trust me that's when stuff breaks. been there, done that. i try not to do it often.
