Prevention of human caused fires urged

With Memorial Day weekend upon us and the season for more outings on public lands, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), Western Nevada Agency, would like to remind the community to be aware of the increased chance of wildfire due to drying conditions and increased fuels from the wet spring.

Life with a Jeep - Just another mod...

Okay, it started with a gasket replacement and escalated from there. Gasket replaced, thermostat housing replaced, fan belt replaced and manual throttle control installed.  And, everything works.

The paint dried and I reinstalled the floor panel over the transmission. That lead to another small item - new transmission shifter boot covering. The original was barely big enough and it was showing signs of stress - the rubber boot was in three pieces. Luckily, the local Pep Boys has the next larger size of universal covering in stock.  Perfect fit.

Life with a Jeep

While cycling through vehicles to check fluid levels, hoses, and belt condition, I noted seepage from the thermostat housing on my YJ. No problem, I had a couple gaskets and it was time to swap the stock housing for the hi-flow thermostat housing that has been taking up shelf space for several years. And, while I'm at it, a new fan belt as the one on is cracking and showing signs of wear.

Bears Follow their Noses, so You Should Follow these Tips

May 3, 2016 - With an estimated 35,000 bears, California has a healthy and growing black bear population. In spring hibernating bears emerge from their winter slumber and begin an almost perpetual search for food. It is not uncommon for a black bear to consume up to 20,000 calories a day. Unfortunately, this search can sometimes lead bears into populated areas and conflicts with humans.
