Nobody has brought up a Trooper Jamboree for 2013 so far. Ricksrb, Bruhaw, Casey from JMC and a couple of others plus myself have been planing a ride in the Parker, AZ area starting Friday March 8th to Sunday March 10th. The Jamborees have always been hard to put together because we have always tried to get everybody to agree on a time. This proved to keep it sloppy and we never ended up with more then 3 or 4 forum members coming. Talking with Bruhaw, we decided to call this the 2013 Spring Jamboree and see if any one else wants to join us. Anybody and everybody is welcome, you don't have to have a Joyner. We are planing to stay at the La Paz County Park Campground which is about 8 miles north of Parker. This campground is right on the Colorado River and is very clean quite nice. The cost is about $25 a night. They do allow dogs. We wil be rriding the trails in the area and on the other side of the river in California. We'll get a chance to offroad to the infamous Desert Bar which is out in the middle of nowhere and primarily for off roaders. We will be trailering to the rides from the campground. For myself, I'll be droping my 5th wheel and pulling just my Trooper trailer into California because Its illegal to double trailer in that state.

This is adding up to be a great riding event and we hope others can join us. Let us know.

Lenny,

I got a message from Bruce this morning about the campground. he said it was about a 3 mile drive to the trail head by road. If the trail head is is refering to is the same one i am thinking it is there is a campground directly across the street from it. I am waiting to hear back from him now.

P.S. I tried to send you a PM but it would not accept.

There is, it to is also on the Colorado river. I had called them and theysaid they have lots of space open for around that time. They are about 5 dollars a n ite more, no big deal. It would be nice to be able to head out for a ride when everyone else is doing something else. I'll drop Bruce a thought on that too.

Might have to clean out my PMs, I'll check it.

Maps and coordinates please

Would you mind checking whether or not Licence Troopers can drive on the roads so we (I) don't have to trailer the Trooper from camp.

I know up in Havasu they dont press it as long as you abide by the law. If its licensed off road you can go on roads to reach trail heads. Naturally if its street licensed no problem.

I have looked closer at Google Earth and fount a ton of trails connecting to the Desert Bar. I can't stay at the campgrounf because they don't allow Dobermans. Your ok with your dog Rick. I'm going to stay across the road from the campground. I'll be maybe 200 or 300 yards in and isolated from the public. I can let the dogs run more freely there. Its all BLM land so camping is allowed.

Glad to hear it Devildog. We will look forward to meeting you, should be a great time. So far I know everyone that is coming and they are a good bunch and fun to ride with. I may slow down a bit this year, got a little wild at last years Jamboree. We have switched to Castle Rock Shores Campground. Its about 3 miles farther up the road from Parker but it is right at the trailhead. Don't know what to tell you about shims. Are your valves runing tight or loose. If they are tight you can have them ground but you need to get your final thickness determined accurately. In other words, how much would have to come off each shim and then carefully mark each one. If they are too loose, I would think that you could get some hardened shim stock, not hard to find, and cut 25mm circles out of it to put uner the existing shims. The existing shims sit in a bucket about, maybe .050" deep. If you would have to add 6 or 7 thousands, that still leaves enough depth to hold the stock shims in place. Of course, the shim stock shims would be captured in the bottom of the buckets under the stock shims.

Looking forward to you being there. Others should get their reservations made to. They have open spaces for that time now but the lady said they stay busy that time of year. Anyone who wants to camp with my wife and I across the highway is welcome. We are fully self contained so we don't need any hookups and Its BLM land so camping is permited.

I can get the coordinates if you need them but I think this will do it for you. Looking at Google earth, the main trail starts after you drive around the lot that looks like there are trailers stored in it. This is across the main road from the Castle Rock Shores Campground. If you look at the trail from a perspective view, not the ground view, You will see that the canyon the trail goes into is a lot wider then it appears. It looks to me that there is plenty of room for camping. Also there is an entrance to the trails that comes in on an angle just a bit south down the main road. This angled road goes in behind some large rock mounds before merging witht he main trail. There is a hidden area about mid way on this trail that looks doable. Let me know if you need any more information then this. Jeanne and I will be going to Quartzite in mid Feburary for a treasure and gold hunting expo. Its really just an excuse to go and have some fun. We plan on checking out the area then to zero in. Looking at Google Earth, I did see some campers way back in on the trails so, they can get in. I'm hoping to get down the main trail about 200 to 300 yards so I don't have to worry about the dogs and the main road. Its all a matter of rather the trail is too sandy to drive on or not. I will find a remote camping area and you and Linda welcome to join us.

      I Recently purchased a Massimo T-Boss 550F last fall with their 60" snow thrower because I couldn't find a decent UTV here in Southern Ontario; nothing in stock anywhere. I am having really bad buyer's remorse after spending time on it and reading all the bad online reviews. The company boasts the fact that it is built in Texas, USA, so I was hoping to do the right thing by buying, "Made In North America" but it is still Chinese Junk, assembled in the USA. and I am starting to realize that I am going to have a lot of difficulty getting parts for this thing; I can't even get an oil filter, finally bought a "Hisun" filter and hope it fits. i busted the shear pins in the snow thrower and can't find replacements for that either. The thing is so hard to change gears most of the time; I am terrified I am going to wreck something. The place I purchased it from is absolutely useless. Can I adjust something myself? Anyone out there have this problem and have some advice (besides selling it and buying a good brand)?

      New to the forum and to UTVs. Just bought a Polaris RZR 900 Trail Ultimate this week. Haven't taken it out yet, but fortunately love close enough to high desert public lands (BLM) to drive there from the house. Looking forward to picking up some pointers from y'all.

      I have an American Landmaster LM500 with an old style snow plow hook-up.  Unfortunately, the mounting bracket broke & I lost the key part where the plow receiver connects to the cross bar with two pins.
      I checked with customer service & they said...

I believe they are sold as a kit though and they are not cheap, part # 15329. I’ve included a photo below since the web store does not have a photo for that part.

      I checked with our parts department and neither the kit or the components are available as that was the older style hook up system. The only option at this point would to have something manufactured. All of our current plows are either dual actuated or winch hookup so we would only have components for those models as of currently.
      In the picture, below, it would be item #5 (the one with the two mounting brackets that hold the pins that the plow mount latches onto) - not the top one in the picture, but the one below t hat.
      I have all the other parts - but the missing part is critical to mounting the plow.
      Does anyone happen to have an old one they could part with - or have an alternative solution?
      The rig wasn't optimal, as you had to use the winch to raise & lower the blade & manually adjust the angle.  It kept falling off when I was plowing snow - as the pins that hold it in only have a groove for a pin clip & they would often get knocked off & then the plow would hang down & you'd loose the pin - then it would get all messed up.
      Thanks in advance for any advice.  I am thinking of going to a welding shop to see if they can create something - but it will still have the same limitations as before - the pins are highly specific and not cheap
