    I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE PRICE OF THE EVENT IF ANY.
    DRIVE TIME (ARE YOU SITTING DOWN) IS ABOUT 24 HOURS ONE WAY. I WILL BE RUNNING WITH STEVE W. AT LEAST THAT IS WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT. SO COME ON DUDE.

    Not sure where I'm staying yet. I went to Moab over EJS and there were some guys I rode with that stayed at Motel 6. It had a really big parking lot that looked pretty secure for parking vehicles. It was well lit. Seemed like it would have plenty of room for working on vehicles etc. I think it was brand new also. Seemed like a nice place to stay. I'll probably check around and make reservations soon.

    I don't think my truck would be ready in time.. plus .. I have to take a trip to Amarillo and pick up my "new to me" Blazer.. the weekend of the 23rd.. sooo.... it would have to be next time.. besides.. isn't it a gamble when they are only allowing 50 Persons on any given run? ... hmmmmmm.... /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
