    Me, Steve, Shawn, maybe Ken(White Whomper), and a friend of mine Dan with a Scout are all going. Of course Stephen will be there. If you are going you had better get your reservations now though or plan on sleeping in Grand Junction.

    but I was mistaken

    I think Shawn is going the 9th through the 11th. Steve is going the 9th thru the 15th. Dan and I am going either the 9th or the 10th thru the 15. We are going to stay at Moab rim campground. We will have to set up a meeting place to hook up.

    I'm going too try too leave the 9th or 10th too.Probably stay till the 14th or 15th.Ya i just called some motels.All i can say is ouch i'm in the wrong business.Called some campgrounds i think pitching a tent is going too be the way.Does the Moab rim campgrounds take reservations.If we leave the same day we will have too caravan or something.I hate too do it but i'm probably going too trailer mine there.Something about free fuel in a company truck that keeps my wallet from screaming in agony.

    Dont feel bad mine makes every trip to Moab on a trailer. I had rather pull it, listen to CD's and have creature comforts. Plus I get 10mpg pulling it or 5.5 driving it. As of Jan. Moab rim was supposed to start taking reservations. Me and Steve have their only two cabins. They are only 35 bucks a night for a bunk bed and a full size with AC. I was able to make my res. back in December because I am a returning customer. It is a nice clean campground. They have a web site and the woman who runs it name is Sue. You might even try to bribe her with real Budwieser. All they have in Utah is 3.2. Left her a half case last trip and we are buddies now.

    HOT DAMN! I just found me a new secretary! Not so pretty but Butch will do![​IMG] Butch is correct on the dates. I'm staying at the Super 8. It's one of the larger motels with a pool. Yeah, they are pricey. For me and my wife, it's $79 for Monday and $89 for Tues. I was thinking about camping but it's nice to take a shower since you're covered in red dust after a day of wheeling.

    Guys, I'm new to the K5 but would like to join you if I can? I'm up in summit county. Do you think they will have anymore sites available? I'm not positive about the dates but would sure like to try. Let me know how I can find out about the sites. My Blazer has 200 miles on it since the rework and needs some fun, me too. Thanks..

    Butch-
    No raise till you shave those harry legs of yours! [​IMG]

    Storm-
    When it gets closer to the day, I'm sure we'll know more when and where we're all meeting. I'd reserve a spot now. I'm not sure who to contact about that.

    Hay Butch, How about that web site for Sue? I'll bring her a couple of cases if she can hook me up with a spot. Let me know.
