Recent vist to Organ Pipe National Park and more

Thursday, 3 January 2008

We just visited Organ Pipe National Pipe yesterday, there are pics in the Photo Album, check 'em out. We drove the shorter of the two loop drives, and the one that is said to be the more scenic. What a fantastic place, the organ pipe cactus are something you just have to see. We'll have to go back and spend a little more time exploring the hiking trails and the longer loop.

On the home building front - we did finally get the original plans from the first architect we contracted with, but he flaked out on us. Took me several months to get the plans from him. Now we have the plans and are working with Greenovative Solutions to finish the work and get us started on building our home.

I haven't been out off-roading lately - I gave the Ranger to my son and bought a Cherokee. I want to do a bit of work to the Cherokee to make it even more trail-worthy, such as a lift-kit first of all. I already rejplaced the original bumpers with some really cool tube bumpers. And I have new rims for bigger and wider tires for after the lift-kit job is done. The Cherokee, as it is now is only capable of some easy off-roading.

I build a web site for a 4x4 shop here in Tucson, check it out if you're into 4x4'ing - www.trailbossoff-road.com .
