Glad to hear that Suzi got out in the world so early this year.

suzi the psychic doesn't care for the uphill highway grinds(you know how she is), but will put up with it. she's much happier on a trail.
i took a little side trip on my way home to see where the san joaquin river meets the sacramento. i was kinda monkeywrenching and got run off the levee by an irate farmer.
i tried to explain that i'm a good gate closer, but he was only slightly mollified.
later, i got rousted by police(danville or pleasanton, i think) who thought i was a kid(ha ha)and complained about my exhaust.
i should make her quieter, and have been trying to come up with a way.
i'm also real pleased with some radio contacts i made on this trip. learned stuff from them.

I don't recall suzi being aggressively loud. On the trails in the Kyburz area, all the Monteros were definitely more dominant in the exhaust note...that is unless things have been changed around I don't recall? Or, you're listening to Pantera turned up to 11! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

Sounds like you had a lot of fun Richard! I'm glad you made it out and back ok. Sorry to hear your plans for the next one aren't going to work out...

ha ha- when i think of "planning" these days.....
work scheduling is very fluid. i'm gonna be involved in a start-up some day, and it will probably interfere, but i have "scheduled" mar 17-21 for a run.
early in the season, weather, and lower elevation. mabe a piece of s fork american?
can't wait, but can't count on it either.

suzi has a new radio.
adi ar-446.
looks like her ar-146, but takes a different antenna.
i expect more parts today so i can see if i works.
then i need to figure where to put it.
i also may make another stab at a computer mount.
sometimes i consider hacking away a lot of the dash. it seems a waste of space- at least on the "passenger" side.

Hi Richard,

Do you need that NMO cable I got from you a while back?

suzi is not air-bag equipped? You could make a bridge-type mount for the right side dashboard there.

no on the nmo cable, jon.
i hope you can use it or pass it on.
bummer not having a metal roof(yet), but i've been able to tune these sticks fairly well(i think), considering how i've been mounting them.
i'll take some pictures.

only air bag is the one behind the wheel.
there just seems to be a better way to use that space.
i do like the glove box, but would be willing to lose it or move it. i think there is some more a/c stuff in there i could get rid of(useless weight)and make that former passenger foot well more useful also.
suzi seems to go along with most anything i propose.
