    Tonie Seger Passed away may 30th

    For those of us that have had the opertunity to exlorer the Last Chance Canyon and go to the Burro Schmidt Mines may have met Tonie Seger, the owner of the Burro Schmidt Mine. She just had her 95th Birthday party in April of which some of us were invited to by Dave the caretaker. Igofshn, myself and Reese had spent the day exploring the canyons and talking with Larry over at Bickel Camp and then up to the Burro Schmidt mine where we stopped and chatted with Dave and Tonie's son for a couple of hours. We didn't go in to see Tonie on this visit because she was resting. Dave informed us of the big party they were going to throw for her on the 26th, the model t club was coming up. Due to prior engagements none of us made the party.
    I know that Jeepgal's daughter had spent time talking with Tonie and enjoyed her company and looked forward to speaking with her when we went there.
    I have got lots of good stories from her about the history of the area and how things have changed over the years.

    Tonie will be missed- Maybe we could make the Memorial when we find out when it is.

    I agree with Jim here (obviously, I'm putting the thing in!), a D35's biggest weakness is the flexy tubes. A truss goes a long way toward making them better. Sarah only has 31's and stock 3.07 gearing, so she is not in near the danger of someone running 4.56's and 33 or 35 inch tires. The torque transmitted to an axle is a function of the lever arm and the gear ratio (the larger the diameter tire and lower the gearing, the more torque can be transmitted). The next step will obviously be a bulletproof Warn or Moser, etc. axle setup, but not really necessary for the type of wheelin we're doin with that jeep until bigger tires and gears go on it. In other words, we are not out to break her daily driver when we go out in it. Does she *need* the locker? Absolutely not. Is the locker free? Absolutely. lol

    Free Locker being the keyword here . Anything can be made stronger . Trussing the housing and maybe an axle upgrade in the future will be a key factor in making it work and lasting . just my $.03

    hold on... do you mean for your gym shorts or are you gonna put one in your TJ? If the latter is the case let me know the details. Putting a locker in a 35 that isn't a super 35 is asking for trouble. just my .02.

    Ummmm....I'm pretty sure bacon and I are in, it's only like an hour from us (ok, 1 1/2 in the jeep). I think we should meet the non-LA/west/north side people at 138 and palmdale road (thats you tams). All I.E. ppl will probably find that this is the best place to meet. If anyone is interested, I'm draggin bacon to breakfast at the Mountain Top Cafe on 138 for breakfast.....lol. we'll talk about a breakfast time when we figure out what time we all want to get up there.
