Doug, log out and log back in. That happens to me from time to time.

Made it back home last night without too much issue. I had a good time on the trails - worked out where I ended up leading 70 year old Bill in his Disco I w/ an R380 and Paul (cannot remember his name for sure) and his daughter Dawn in a very cool (and I think only) Series III at ROTR. Both these guys were from OH and were warriors for driving the long distance to Rausch. We were looking to keep it mellow - I had no front wheel drive and the Series III and Disco were pretty stock. Got in some fun lines over in the West Property zone, working J1 to J2 and then over to Trail 11 which we had a little stuck and recovery on. Coming down the J2 drop was interesting - rear end was sliding - so I had to brake to get the front wheels to do some work. It actually would have been fun if the hill was wide open - could have slid it like on a mtn bike, haha.

Great meeting Josh and big thanks to him for the light switch - mine blew up on the way out. Thank God we were only a couple miles out from the hotel. But it was a relief to have a proper working one coming back home. Shout out to Justin @ Lucky 8 for tracking me down and offering the one out of his 90 - I really appreciate the offer :

Good to see all the usually Landie heads - Charles, Goose, Jeremy and Jake with the Disco, Jeff and meeting his wife. Charles - thanks again for bringing out a diff even though I ended up not using it. Great meeting some new people like Doug (sry to hear about the Disco - Winch Hill is a bish!). Cool to see some trucks from the D90 board like Wolf's UnGay 110 - looks great in person. I wish I had more time to hang and wheel and swap stories but lots of family things going on. Looking forward to the next time at RC!

Justin, thanks for sponsoring and organizing on such a Lucky Gr8 event. Easy for me to say but 2 of these a year would be excellent. Also a big thanks to Doug, Dana, Josh and Randy. Two of my fan blades busted off and wedged in enough to stop my fan from operating. I didnt figure this out until i overheated the next morning, but as Rover luck would have it...Randy(of Rover Bones) had a spare fan, Dana had an impact wrench, Doug helped pull the fan shroud off and Josh had a much needed spare gal. of coolant. Thanks Guys, I thought I was done for sure.

Forgot I had a pic on my phone of my co-pilot Coop. He got a little muddy and seemed to have a good time. I think he was a trooper for riding shotgun almost 3 hours each way and then on the trail most of Sat. Love PA truckstops - he got a little 10 wheeler dump truck and authentic PA slingshot that kept him happy on the ride home

I had a great time. It was good seeing everyone, and echo the thanks to Trevor and Justin for putting on the event.

Sure is, and the Official Land Rover Discovery Accessory Testing Team are right behind it. Do you have any specific accessories you want a review of? I doubt too many cross over to the mall crawler domain, but I am sure there are some

I like Russell's photo #61 where Charles is performing open ecu surgery in the dark with Trey, Kenny, and Jeff. It surprises me that Jill's goat doesn't end up in more pictures. That goat gets off on wheeling and stands with his head over her right shoulder looking out the windsheild. Cracks me up.

Sal, glad you made it out for a couple runs!

HAHA...I was still more bummed about the tire. Cruised home no problems though!

I am loading my pictures now, all 800mb of them so it will take a bit. I will post the link when they are done.

It was great seeing everyone and thanks to those that put the event on... well worth it. Without a doubt one of the best events of the year and great way to end the wheeling "season."

Waterproofing the ecu might sold the problem.

Sal, good seeing you. I still need to see what pictures you took with my camera while riding with me, but I took none myself the whole weekend, not even on my phone.

I think any kind of gasket on the ECU covers would have prevented it getting wet as it had none. It appears on this year of disco they just decided to not even try waterproof it, or put it in a waterproof location even. The D90 ecu at least has a seal. Keeping pout of hood deep water also works wonders for keeping your ECU dry though too

never had this issue with my 14cux trucks. the gems ecu has no gaskets on the cu in fact it has a condensation drain so you can't seal it up. Location sucks, under the hood behind the washer bottle

It surprises me that the owner of this waterlogged rig is not even in the repair pictures! He must be keeping his hands warm somewhere else ....

Great time for sure and thanks to those who helped/offered parts for my dying alternator. I ended up making it home on mine after a good bath in PB Blaster to keep everything moving but did get a spare from Trevor just in case! Trevor, I'll be contacting you later today or tomorrow about that one (hope that's ok!).

I'll try to get all of the photos uploaded later today or tomorrow but wanted to get a sampling out for all to see. Sorry Galpin but I couldn't resist but to show the photos of you stuck (twice) before going on to be champ at the challenge!
