    Rock on Doug! Congrats to you and the expectant mother............let us know when you get there all safe and sound. Arizona's loss is Colorado's gain.

    And you being that close to Moab sucks.........../forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    First of all welcome to Colorado, glad to have you here. Most of us are friendly in response to the "people are rude" post. There are gonna be rude people no matter where you go.
    Now you have to figure out if you want California or Texas plates for your vehicles. Seems like it is all you see here in Colorado so my guess is that is what they issue when you go get your new plates at the DMV. Hopefully they give you a choice.

    Thanks AZBLAZER for the help yesterday! Just to let everone know, I had stuck my 81 K5. My boss highcentered his 2001 Siverado HD trying to get back to my truck. Another trip into town to get my Ford F250 with a 8000 Warn multi mount. I fried the positve cable on the battery and melted a hole in my brand new battery. Thanks again AZBLAZER, I look forward to hitting the trails this summer.

    Glad to hear you made it ok. Some local friends are wanting to take a Colorado Trip this summer sometime. I will keep you posted when we plan the trip.

    Later,
