Comments:


My first trek with the CV4W was the Mojave Road, April 3 and 4, 2010.   What a BLAST!  And what a friendly bunch of people.  Thank you.



FINALLY finished repainting the roof.  (I started it only four years ago.)  Now it's a "10 foot Jeep."  Looks good from 10 feet away.  It was a "50 foot Jeep" before.
