Well yeah. That seems to be how it is. A nice warm day - no events - cold, wet, and windy and everything happens. Kinda like 2021 in the spring... We had a weekend MV show and a berzerk honey bee stung me in the corner of my eye.

I have plans this year again - and come hell or high water - I plan to be there. Probably end up with a monster Snowfall this year. :)

Best of luck out there on the beach in the cold and wet in Texas.
That ain't supposed to be that-a-way!

Wow. The rpms do drop in last gear. I most definitely would consider this mod. Is there any concern with offroading and the converter lockup?
To answer this, there was no issue in low range, I was monitoring it on the laptop and it went into lockup in second gear and stayed there as long as I was feeding it fuel but I have noticed that in gears between 2nd and 4th the TC will go out of lock most of the time when the accelerator is at 0%, then as I add fuel it will within a few seconds will lock the converter again.
Rock crawling would really benefit from manual shifting, one of my many upcoming projects.
The 4.030:1 VS 2.480:1 (4L80) 1st gear is awesomely slow.

I'm starting to buy the individual items for a swap. I saw this dual brake switch. I know you only needed rpm and tach signal. Is there any added benefit with brake signal? I was thinking one side for 24v and other for 12v.
Not that I can think of, have you received the documentation from Zero Gravity, if not ask them for it.
