Welp....went out to box canyon and did some drywashing.

Couldnt really do any beeping as I couldnt find any bedrock!

Heres some pix.

Got a lot of slivers and flakes. Nothing to write home about but at

least we werent skunked.

Went through the box. Its really scenic in there. If youve never been you aught to

run up the Hassyumpa and take a look. Need a 4x4 though. Nothing tough just a lot of sand.

Climbed up to Mistake mine right on the tip of the box. That was a mistake....had to pretty much crawl up the mountain! Turned around and Bajeebers....went back down on my butt.

It was fun though. Got my exercise for this week.

Im the guy in the funny hat and long sleeves...hate getting burnt!

Enjoy the pix.

Your 4Runner has some awesome clearance, and the old "Woodland" pattern BDUs are still my favorite. Too bad there isn't a decent surplus store around here, I need a few things.

Where's the pic of your cleanup?

Welp...the cleanup may be a while. I dont have anything to seperate the blacksand/gold yet.

Going to try to make a blue bowl to do that. :)

The little runner does good. Kind of gutless on freeway hills but when your out in the hills it really crawls around nice. Its a gas sipper too! Bout 21MPG average with 4 wheeling.

26 yrs in the military and im pretty used to the BDUs. Although...even the lightweights are HOT...really tight weave on the cloth.

Have you looked on E-bay?

The AF switched over to a grey camo and I bet you can find a lot of the woodlands on E-bay from guys trying to dump them.

I retired from the Army in 2000 after 21 years. The Woodland pattern kinda coincides with my career, maybe that's why I like it. I've backed off of eBay as the fees and high shipping have just about ended the good deals that you could find there years ago.
