A new feature for the video page has been added:  Comments.

The page has been redesigned a bit to allow for members (and guests) to post comments on the videos.  All the comments on the video will be listed at the bottom of the page as well!

This is using the YouTube direct comment system.. so not only can you post and view comments through the website, youtube users can see and post directly on youtube and share all the same info!

I may do the same for the photos page, but lets see how everyone likes this feature for videos first.

Its also using a bit of new tech for the website, ajax calls to post.  You will notice when you post that a little waiting logo will appear, and then a thank you message, all without reloading the page :-)

Final note:  Right now, both members AND guests can post comments, but I may need to limit or restrict what guests can post in the future...

Final Final note:  Your posted comment may take a while to display (say 10minutes) for Youtube to refresh the comments feed.... Ie next time you visit the video page for the video, it should show your comment.

I will be placing some photos in an album shortly. Sense I just returned home last night I am not able to make tonight’s meeting due to existing constraints and the fact that a week with nearly zero sleep has worn me into some sort of coughing garbage.


Lets start with the Big Bear Forest Fest: June 18-19-20 


Head up the hill Friday the 18th Jeep behind the motor home on the trailer and about 7 miles up the hill past the 210/330 we blew the trans. Wedged off the road under up hill coast with some quick thinking on into a clearing / turn-out. Unload the jeep off the trailer so I can travel up to where the cell worked. Made a bunch of calls to my friends at the fest plus Hamner Towing. At 5:30 pm Hamner shows with a big rig tow and took the motor home and car trailer away, kids and Debbie jumped in the Jeep with me and we went on up to Snow Valley, completed tech inspection, registered, visited a bit, then left for Mission Viejo to sleep and back in the morning. Obviously we had nothing to sleep in.


Sat the 19th - Up at 3:00 am which was tough sense we only just got home at 11:30pm. Grabbed the Pick-up and Deb drove the Jeep and we went to Corona to pick up the car trailer and a bunch more motor home stuff. Get up to BBFF at 6:00 am. Line up with Larry of Poison Spider and the rest of my JKO buddies and off to run Dishpan Springs. Some drama there but 25+ Jeeps right through forward and then back.


Great Steak Dinner that night, kids rock wall, live band, kids raffle, main raffle, sleep in a tent and it's cold. Sunday morning get up, skip the gold hill run and go home. Wife pretty much hates me :) kids are zombies.


Monday the 21st - I remember back a year ago a good buddy of mine gave me Chino Hills Transmission to discuss a driveline vibe in the motor home. Rick sent me to Wade (We all know wade) and wade was great. Now it was my turn to give Chino Hills Trans a chance to rebuild the trans. Has to be done by Friday at days end because I have this Rubicon deal, Sugar Pine camp ground, Well's making the trek, etc. So I did what any desperate Jeeper would do....I begged with money.


Friday June 25th - Motor home is ready. The failure was the front hub for first gear planet set. Sheared off. So now we have a nice Billet Front hub, which is a 6 planetary instead of 4, shift kit, $2700 later I am rolling. Time to crash pack. Friday was an up till 2:00 am deal...were ready.


Saturday June 26th - We leave at 8:00 am for the 550-mile trek to N. Lake Tahoe. That took a quick 14 hours. During this drive we received a call from Wells. Unfortunately were going up the 5 but decide to stay the first night on the trail Monday at Loon lake to give Wells Monday to get it fixed and up to loon which was do-able from Bishop.


Sunday - June 28th - Head from my Buddies Father in Laws place in Kings Beach down to Sugar Pine Camp Ground and check in. Sign a contract stating we would not leave anything out at night because the Bear problem is very real. Get a call from Wells and he's heading home in second gear. We feel bad for him. He was really looking forward to this deal.


Monday - June 28th - Make the trek down the 50 with the Jeeps loaded, right on Ice House Road, and up to Loon Lake. Stayed there Monday night anyway. That was an excellent choice. Fished, relaxed, camped, women had real toilets....LOL Wife still hates me but is a little happier with camping garbage (her words). :)


Tuesday 29th - Out an onto the Rubicon Loon Lake entrance at 8:00 am. Down the first granite slab, through the gate keeper, down slabs, up the other side on our way to the little Sluice for lunch and to watch the rock buggies play. Enter Walker hill - Remember we are loaded heavy on the roof racks and extra stress on the Jeeps - Mike breaks a rear hub (he has this Warn rear hub axle conversion kit which was there when he bought it) but no big he has a spare. After about an hour getting to a point we can jack the thing up, get the hub on, and ready to roll it now pushing 3:00 pm. So much for Buck Island for tonight.


Top of walker hill this new hub is creaking then bang Mike lost a rear Locker or actually broke an axle shaft in his 44. So were forced to unlock this hub and discover that with heavy jeeps, a peg leg was not going to get it done. Now it’s 6:00 pm and were driving out. Hit loon lake at dark thirty, exhausted (Gate keeper on a peg leg) I am near a fat mans death. We sit at the waters edge sobbing like school girls. Done.


We get Mike set and drive back to Sugar Pine.


Wednesday 30th - Mike's birthday...for a gift was leaving the families behind and were driving in the back way to the Con. All the way to Observation point, and look at Cadillac Hill. I'm feeling a little better. So basically I have been on 1/2 the trail.


Wed night - Bear issues, stuff torn apart, rangers running around with shot guns in full tatical allert. People screaming,  Fun stuff. The bears are officially out of control and the rangers know it. Wow! They can hardly keep up with the rubber bullets. By the way the Shotgun holds 6 rounds. The first three are rubber bullets. The second three are in case the rubber bullets don't get the bear on the move. Then ther is no more movement and a forklift is needed. The Browns are averaging near 600 lbs now. Very well fed. 


Fast forward to yesterday and the drive home. We have some boating stories as well but nearly sinking a boat is not what a Jeep club does so I will skip that. LOL.


Everything is now for sale (j/k). Make and offer. My Bad luck is up for bid first.  Lets start at I give you a $100. Takers?
