Wassup Jason?
I was just wondering if and when you are gonna put up any pics from the last trip to Hollister. I am dying to see some of the pictures that were taken of me trying to climb that one hill, fell in that rut, and put the left fron tire a couple feet in the air.
Next time I will not make the stupid mistake of not bringing a digital camera with me.

One more question you might know the answer to. If I put a CB in my ride, do I absolutely have to hang one of those big ass antanaes off my ride? I just want to be able to talk with people in the group on trail rides, so I don't need reception further than 100 yards at the most. What do you think?

Nick -

Not much happening right now. I have a ton of pics that i need to scan, as well a a bunch of digicam pics I need to organize from the last 3 runs! I will get to it sooner than later though.

As for the CB, you will need an antenna unless you get a handheld type. That will work on the trails just as good as a regular radio. Be sure to buy one that is a CB and not a "personal communicator" as it will not transmit/receive CB frequencies.

Nick,

Don't know what you drive, but firestik:

http://www.firestik.com

has some really nice mounts:

Dodge front fender mount:

Stake-pocket mount:

Then you can use either Wilson (http://www.wilsonantenna.com) or firestick fiberglass antennas with the mounts.

Firestik also makes a quick-disconnect for the antennas:

or replace the whole stud mount on the moutning plate with a QD:

If you're in the San Jose area, and you want help hooking stuff up, I can lend a hand (I go wheeling with Jason fairly often). I've got a spare QD, but it screws into a normal stud, and doesn't replace it. If you're local, it's free to you (if I can find it in the garage).

Thanks to everyone fopr all the advice. Thankyou much for the offer Aaron, but be it as I am up here in Sacramento with Jason and all the other NoCal boys, I'll have to fend for myself. As for what I drive, it's an 89 Ford Bronco. There are a bunch of pics of it from the last Hollister trip. I have a CB now, not hooked up yet, but it's gonna go right on the front of my console and then i will just run a Firestick antannae with a quick disconnect right off the spare tire mount on the tailgate. Should have it all up here in a week or so. Thanks again for all the help.
