    Not trying to create a panic, but that's how many days you have left to get ready for Moab. (Assuming that you are leaving on Wed 7/21 to arrive by Friday)

    I've been ordering parts and planning my upgrades so that I should be ready to go when the big day gets here. I also am hoping to make a "shakedown run" either to Pismo, or Hollister to verify that the truck is solid before it starts it's 1000 mile trek! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Re: Oooops !! 33 DAYS TO MOAB !!!

    What a relief... I have the "countdown" written on each day of my calendar. I was looking at the wrong week when I first posted this thread.....so we're actually at 33 days left today (7/19)

    Having those extra 7 days helps.....but it's still gonna go QUICK!

    Burt,

    Yep definitely write a checklist and post it in the garage..... you'll go nuts trying to remember stuff when you are so excited about the trip.

    Without a list, I think the only things I'd think to bring would be tequila, CDs, and gas money!!!! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    So have you figured out how/when your gonna hook up with the caravan? We can meet you anywere along the way? Heck you can even come to my house the night before or that moring? Sup to you. If you wanted you could even meet us in Vegas? Do you have anyone to travel out of the Gay Area with yet?

    Re: Oooops !! 33 DAYS TO MOAB !!!

    I haven't figured out the "hookup point" yet. Tuesday night (8/20) is when my vacation starts, so I am ready to leave EARLY Wednesday morning, or like you said, drive somewhere and meet up with the group the night before and catch a few ZZZZ's. I gotta believe there's got to be at least one or two other (ahem, BAY area) CK5'ers besides me....but if not, I'll swing over to your area to save time.

    I really don't want to wait till Vegas to hook up with the caravan. Half the experience will be driving in a big pack of other K5s with our "MOAB OR BUST" stickers on, and sound of a few dozen sets of Swampers howling down the road!!!!

    I am planning to have a CB installed before the trip too....so I can hear all the "YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAA's" as they happen!

    Cool! Yup I too would like to have you with us before Vegas!
    You are more than welcome to head over to my place the night before and crash out!
    Would cut 1 1/2 hr off your day?
    whatever works best for you is cool with me!

    FYI for all you first time Moabers. Utah only has 3.2 beer so if you want real beer you had better bring it with you.
