    Here yesterday, in Las Cruces NM, 2-10-2011, my other home in the US where I have an apartment, when I have to come home from in the field. I am normally in the Yucatan where I actually have a home there in Majahual.

    Hey, great and thanks alot. Very kind. Appreciated.

    No on the Bronco. This is my 46th year of Jeeps, and VEX is number 26. He has 1,450,760 miles on his 5th engine-restored as a total. I've had him now for 20 years and stuck with this one. He has been to Asia, Mongolia, all of Central and South America clear down to Terra de Fuego, at the bottom of the world, and even has been in Mali Empire, Timbuktu, Central Africa.

    I've been a Jeep nut since 11 years old and driving my dad's 1943 military Jeep on the ranch in Montana where I grew up. Typical ranch kid.

    Keep on Jeepin'!!

    Robert

    Haha. Oddly, most all Archaeologists have been wearing a brown fedora since 1902. Indiana Jones copied the style for the movies. And that hat was a gift from Harrison Ford, as he has one of my NASA paintings he bought.

    Thank you,

    Robert

    I knew this was coming, but being a Bronco guy, I had to take the easy shot. Its actually a very cool Jeep (I will kill you if you tell any of my friends I said that). The wheel travel is very nice!

    From one Robert to another, welcome to the board.

    I've already seen that you are a valuable addition. Keep up the good fight.

    Who makes that hat? I've been looking for "a real one" for years, but the ones I like either aren't fitted, or cheaply made. That is a nice hat!

    Hahahahhahha--what a cool reply. Ok, I will not tell. The ARB air lockers and the 4:1 in the Dana 300 transfer case and the 12,000 lb. winches front and rear, make it the baddest Jeep I've ever had. Thanks for the understanding............hahahahaha--love it!

    I won't tell!
