Getting ready for SoCal Fest 2010 – Part 3

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

First let me say I’m posting this a day late…  This was the progress for yesterday, Sunday May 2nd…

Almost ready to head up the mountain.  I’ve got the trailer loaded with my gear and the Jeep just about ready, all I need to do now is get a cheap voltage regulator to control the alternator (my Mobi-Arc isn’t being very nice right now) and the Jeep’s ready.  Then toss some clothes in a bag, fill my water bladders with clean, clear water, and get some food and drinks on the way out.

M416, SCORE!

I was talking to a buddy of mine on the phone about a month ago and just happened to say something about the ¼ ton military trailers I liked.  Well he knew of one sitting in a field and said he’d ask the old lady who owned it one day…  The day came, she said I could have it, so I high tailed it out to the desert and Josh and I picked it up (along with the Cushman he got for himself).  I even tried to give her some money for it but she refused!  Best of all the trailer was in almost perfect shape, no hacked up tailgate!  The only problem was a broken landing leg and a modified lunette, both of which will be fairly easy fixes.
