Daniel wasn't too bad except for that one hard right off camber axle twisting part with the slight drop off.

We did go up it. It was freaky, but I crawled right up. Puckered up though...

I already got used to that one 4 years ago when I moved here. But I like some change! Looking forward to the event!

If I do go it will be a day trip. The Mrs will be out of town, and I gotta watch the animals.
I should be working on the 110.

Thanks for the offers of assistance from the local Land Rover support group to get my Stage One back on the road. Right now, my problems are simple and all postal.

As I was reassembling things last weekend, I noticed a "new opportunity", a.k.a. a "new oil puddle on the floor". The brake master cylinder just gave up the ghost sitting there in the garage. I took it all apart and it was a muddy / rusty mess on the inside. (in photo below you can see the wet underside of the master cylinder where it meets the brake booster)

So, new parts are on order. Once they get here it will be a quick job and then the wing goes back on. Bleed the brakes and hit the streets.

The Wintergreen event might be more interesting this year. On my side if the mountain we still had 18 inches of snow yesterday.

Dave, I was giving the 110 a walk Saturday AM and drove by expecting to see exposed engine parts but NO! Does this mean she's all put back together and you are good to go?

Afton had over 2 feet of snow, a lot of it still up there. Hope it is melted by next weekend, I am headed back on Sunday to help prep trails.
