    My Love/Hate relationship with LR

    July of 2009, the Military stationed us back home in CO. Coming from TX we had a Jetta TDI for a commuter car. But knowing that CO winters can be nasty, we wanted something 4WD. The search began. I wanted something diesel, with 7 passenger capability. Those are hard to come by in the US...

    F.S. 2006 Land Rover LR3 HSE

    I am doing well. Starting to get insanely busy with the shipments coming up. Sorry to hear you're leaving CO so soon. Godspeed in Georgia and the rest of your career. I am sure we'll keep in touch here off and on? J.D.

    Child safety seat locations?

    Yep, that's the only way around it. Ours just turned around a month ago and it's been really nice, but I still have him in the center so he can see and we can help him with things easier.

    The obligatory "Show off your LR3' thread

    Great to see folks pushing these that hard. You are braver than I, but I also have a specialized rig I built for just that. The LR3 was for the milder family trips.

    Eightlug - thanks for sharing! Sorry to hear about the tire. That is a good set of trails! Houm_WA - Some pretty knarly stuff! You go thru a fair amount of suspension bushings I'd imagine!

    That is awful thick and adds much weight. I am confused as well, but I don't think it's 3/4" thick. most bumpers are built with 3/16" thick.

    You bet. Both worth the trip. Snow on both trails are the issue now, but high water is also an issue with spring runoff on Halfmoon. It'd be a long day, but you could run Mosquito first thing, then drop into Leadville and hit the Halfmoons. I'd do North Halfmoon first. South halfmoon may...

    No, they are opposite sides of the highway. Mosquito runs from near the town of Alma down into Leadville heading west. Both Halfmoons are dead ends running from Leadville west.

    5th annual Crawl 4 Christ, Moab, UT June 6-9

    Check out www.crawl4christ.com So sorry I hadn't posted this earlier. I am planning to be there and have registered. Camping is at Ron's campground and free to military members. The bad news is that up until now we had the whole place reserved, but as of May 1st, Ron asked that we open...

    F.S. 2006 Land Rover LR3 HSE

    The Air Force is moving us to Germany this summer and while I'd love to keep it, the price of fuel over there could put a damper on the traveling we expect to do. So we're selling and will buy a couple diesel sedans once we get there. J.D.

    We posted at the same time. Yeah, I've done South. There is one creek crossing that was knarly at the time, but it changes so much. I thought I saw a thread on CO4x4 of someone running it last fall. South HM starts with a fairly deep creek crossing and from what I hear, is hard to find...

    The only time I have been there, the gate was closed to vehicle traffic, but you can get there on foot. Just to clarify, this is North Half Moon. South Half Moon is just as fun, but no cool mine structure at the end.

    We were on the trail by 10am and headed back thru Nederland around 4:30. We would have been hard to miss LOL! We also saw a Cow Moose 5 miles North of Nederland. Never seen one that close to civilization - in CO anyway.

    Eightlug - you didn't happen to see a convoy of old bronco's did you? We were up playing in the new just North of Nederland.

    Where the XJ is breaking trail is well past Frosty Park and just short of Deer Park. The first park as you head up Mt. Baldy is Frosty Park.

    Ralph - great video! Been a few years since I've hit that trail! Has changed some. That last obstacle at 11:29 used to be pretty tough. I had heard it was smoothed out :(. That's a huge group! Looking for snow? try Mt. Baldy... This is my cousin breaking trail chained up on 35's...

    You bet!!! Some of the funnest wheeling is in the snow... Sorry for it not being the LR, but this rig is a bit more fun to bash the snow in!

    Someone told me a couple weeks ago that mosquito was closed still from snow...Looks pretty clear from those pics! By "Kenosha" do you mean twin cone? Or where on Kenosha did you go? J.D.

    Looking for wheels in CO?

    Seems like a great deal: http://denver.craigslist.org/pts/2566457961.html Came across them while looking for other stuff. This the same lug pattern as the LR3?
