suzi the psychic and miss bitchy spent a couple of very relaxing days on the e f carson.
on sunday, we spotted smoke and decided to become mobile.
we decamped and started the run back to markleeville, but got spotted by emergency personnel who advised exiting thru nevada.
made the offroad run total @42miles, and was very exhausting.

this was suzi's first run of the season.
life can get in the way, sometimes, but we expect to find some fish windows over the couple of months.
we are planning on finding the az crew when they challenge the sierras(sept.)- that should be fun.

been thinking about working on suzi more than actually doing any work. it's easy.
finally stiffened-up the rear trans/tc cross beam.
i had scavenged one from a wrecker(original straighten too many times), cut a couple of appendages off, and glued some pieces of metal to it.
still need to make my "skid plates" fit.

still don't get the picture thing anymore, and "upgraded" to windows10......
this is almost finished.....

report08/17/15
hmmmm.
had to monkey things a bit to reuse the skid plates, and probably shouldn't have. i will not supply a picture unless it gets abused.
i have this nice Ibeam that i want to try, but that will be another off season project involving the new exhaust i plan on making- i have the proper tube bender die now(pretended i was buying it for the lotus).

look082215
trailtough supplied me a front differential mount(used), and suzi is wearing it. the rubber in the old one had "perished".

redeye082515
seems suzi the psychic is in prime condition for her next outing. she has fresh oil and filter, skid pads on, kitchen sink and other personal gear packed.
add ice, food, beer, and a few toys, and she's willing to face the hyway grind. that is the part of the run that concerns me- the high speed stuff, and the hills, dealing w/ traffic, etc....
expect to leave fri. morning(082815), spend the weekend on the e f carson with my brother and miss bitchy, then wander toward wentworth springs to welcome the az/nm visitors(legit!) on tues.(090115).

I like the Windows 10 upgrade on my newer Toshiba laptop with Core i-7 processor. The Toshiba netbook's 1.3 GHz Atom CPU isn't on the upgrade compatible list.

As far as pictures go, I still use Photobucket for most things.

suzi the psychic was able to go play in the sierras with a bunch of miss bitchy's younger siblings.
she met up with the az/nm crew for the sierra challenge(carnage)2015.
fordyce creek was the interest for me, and the trail was brutal......
perhaps i can add a photo......?

seriously, there will be some pictures added.
life has resumed at full tilt boogey, and a full post run inspection of suzi the psychic has not been completed.
fordyce was pretty brutal, and suzi`s bigger cousins made the run conceivable, and she brought me home.
good girl.
i was pleased w/her rock climbing ability, but see a clear advantage to being able to lock the front differential.
some new markings have appeared on her body, no major exterior bashes, but some tub failure is of concern- some of the body is collapsing onto the mounts, mostly around the firewall.
the transmission mount broke again(that's #3!),but this happened on the rubicon section suzi&i ran. i didn't realize 'till south lake tahoe, where straps were applied. this was repeated a couple of more times, as the trip progressed.
suzi's winch worked quite well, but something happened to the control lever, and needs repair.
all the rest of her systems functioned well.
i carried too much camp equipment for that type of run, but it all fit, even if i didn't use it.
