    Okay guys, the baby hasn't been born yet, but no matter what Nicole will be induced before the weekend and we'll have our second son. So we are planning a trip to Grand Junction/Delta October 25-30.

    I would like to run 21 Road on that Saturday the 28th.

    According to what I've read, this trail can be as hard or as easy as you'd like to make it.

    Well if I can remember how, I'm in for 21 RD on October 28th. I'm pretty excited to get the "blue thing" on a trail to see how my improvements work out!

    I hope we can get a few more people to join in on this trip. Hopefully everyone going to BB will survive to do 1 more run.

    Bo maybe while you are out here I can take those tube doors off of your hands.

    I'll probably just ride with Dad. Although that's an interesting idea. I don't know if Nick would be happy with me though. :D

    I'll talk with my sis about hotels in Junction. Unless some one has a bedroom they would volunteer.

    I"m making plans for this run but I wont know if I can go for sure until the last minute.This trail has been on my to do list for a long time so hopefully things will work out.

    I think that this would be a great trial run for the new general.Nothing like trying a new driving style on someone elses axles:D

    That might be a good time to stay over at Mike's, I was hoping to get over there before the snow set in.

    What say Mikey? Would you be up for a drive to 21 road? Only problem I see is hitching a ride up the trail. I'm not taking the chrome-mobile up that hell hole. :D

    Sorry BO sometimes I am a little dense, if you want to pull down to Delta you are welcome to stay with us.

    Cricket and Mike you are welcome to the backseat of the "blue thing". No screaming when we crawl those boulders. Cricket call me please.

    Thanks Fred for the offer. But Deana and I talked we will pull into Junction Friday afternoon and get a hotel for Friday night and saterday. Scott we were thinking about posssible Dinner with your family friday night and maybe Deana can spend the day with Nicole and kids on saterday while we wheel 21rd. Let me know if this works for you and your family. I will also have a open seat in the Puncher.

    I think that would be the best time to do it Mike.

    If you have time that weekend and don't mind a visit I will put it on my calendar.

    If there is anything left of the cherry bomb after Moab I will see if I can swing the day off. I might just balance the weight of somebody elses rig by taking up a passenger seat. Well back to wrenching!!!!:doah: :D

    Maybe I could make a deal with Nick on the fuel expenses and we would both have a piece of our trucks on the trail. :thinking:

    That fancy D60 of his hasn't even seen a real trail yet! :rolleyes:

    We'd just have to argue over driving duties.

    That sounds like an awsome plan, Bo. I don't even think I need to ask Nicole what her answer will be. We are staying in Grand Junction with my sister Thursday and Friday nights. Then down to Delta for Saturday and Sunday nights. So we'll be in Grand Junction already.

    Well tomorrow is the day for sure. We have to start calling the hospital in the morning to see if we can get in to induce. Nicole saw the doc yesterday and he did a few things to try and get it going. She did have some dilation at the doc's office and intermittent labor pains last night, but this morning when we got up she wasn't feeling anything.

    But I have heard that too.
