high-desert shenanigans - 17 march 2018
« on: February 11, 2018, 11:27:17 AM »
For those who haven't seen the facebook announcement and event page, some of us are getting together to wish james and keila well before they move back east:

We would be off roading and camping overnight in the high desert just past 29 palms. We would be meeting at the trailhead at 1000am then traveling into the desert to explore the old dale mining district. We would also be camping by some of the old mines in this area. Donít miss this chance to get away from everything and explore the secrets that this wonderful desert has to offer! If you want to attend please be at:

7314Ė7468 Gold Crown Rd
Twentynine Palms, CA 92277
United States

This address is the trailhead. We will meet there then drive into the desert to explore and camp over night! We would love to see as many people as possible attend this event. We hope to see you all there on March 17th for the fun!

Sounds like so much fun, but don't think my carb will be on in time. You guys should upload some pictures afterward!

Hope you guys get a great turn out! ;D

What facebook group are you referring to? I haven't had much luck finding other Montero owners. Talk about being a fringe group. :) Since I've owned my 1997 Montero SR, I have only seen 3 others Gen 2/2.5's on the road.

I'm almost 4 month into working on my gen 2 overlanding rig. The back is gutted and I'm starting to work on my drawer system, but I'm pretty much camp ready now, and am looking for other overlanders.

I bought it bone stock, but this is how it looks now:



Next up is 285/75R16's, axle swap and a 2" body lift, followed shortly by the ADD lift. It's got a cheap Amazon rack with extensions, but I'll be getting either a front runner full length rack or a self made rack built on the 80/20 10 series of aluminum extrusion and Gamiviti gutter mounts. 80/20 advertise it as legos for adults. I kinda agree.

Cheers,

Mike Stromsoe
