The Plan:
8166013123_7cc42ee9f5_b.jpg


The Line UP:
Metcho ( vc92yota) _ Spouse
Eddie (yellowranger) _ Eric
Mitai racing( motiracer) _ CAmping Equipment
Mikey (only37mikey's) _ Flaunt and myself


That Map up there might as well just be tossed. Only things we followed were the start and stop points. Everything that I mapped out for the first 20 miles of the trip was gated/barbed wired shut... Think that stopped us? Not a chance!....

Flaunt and I left my house at 5:45am got to mikey's and on the road by 6:15. It was colder than a witches tit out. Had to Grab the Ice scraper outta the trophy prius.

On the way home... Temp starts to heat up on an uphill on the 14 right before pearblossom exit. Then when back down to 190 and then went way up. So we pulled off. To find the water pump bolts had backed out of the motor and pump was pissing water.

At first we though fawk it call the chase truck ( AAA). While I was on the Bat phone with AAA Mikey pops the cap and grabs the 5 gallon can of water and starts to fillherup. We dicked around tightening the bolts on the water pump but im pretty sure the RTV gasket is fawked at this point.
