    Okay... Who is gonna step forward and be the ring leader for those of us in the North West? Who all, if any are planning on going?

    As of now...........don't know. How's that for a commitment? That is right during Hood to Coast (run from Mt. Hood to Seaside for those not in the know) that is a major event for my wife and I.............and bowhunting opens that week too.........so that said, I haven't counted it out yet. Question is, will your beast be ready?

    Re: NW CK5\'ers. Moab 2002

    I'm in...lord knows what tRusty will look like when i go but I'll go if I have to carry the ugly beotch![​IMG]

    There are a lot of variables at this point. My wife and kids might want to come (unlikely) and if they do I'll be draggin down our 21 foot trailer. If I'm going solo then it'll be a utility tralier with parts and hopefully some gawdawful big trail tires...[​IMG]

    As the time gets closer we should discuss a planned leave time and a place to meet depending on where you're coming from. I will hit Oregon near Pendleton on the I-84, there might be a somewhat conspicuous place to meet there...

    Re: NW CK5\'ers. Moab 2002

    if you come down I-82, you will pass right by me, pendtleton would be ok, the wild horse casino is just outside of there, i plan on taking off the 20th or 21st, give myself 2 days to travel, depends on how the wife feels, the map and directions says 923 miles from here to moab and 15 hours driving time, im goin for it :)

    Re: NW CK5\'ers. Moab 2002

    Plans vs. what I can afford are two different things...I'm working on a NV4500, planetary doubler (custom), into a NP205. I'm hoping to have a D60 up front by them as well. Dunno how much tire I'll have though...39+ would be ideal!

    Time will tell...

    Ed, I'm planning on a 2 day drive as well so hooking up along the way would be great. Where along the I-82 are you?

    Re: NW CK5\'ers. Moab 2002

    i am in yakima, 140 miles east of seattle, about 35 miles from ellensburg, you might be ready for a pit stop by the time you get this far, if all goes well i will be ready to go, the hotel i work for just aquired the red lion chain from hilton and i get a discount on rooms, i have a list at work of where they are located and there are a couple in idaho that are on the route to moab, we can get this thing fine tuned as the time gets closer, i need some wheelin time before moab, maybe meet up someplace in the middle, mt baker area? index?even portland? i am pumped for this :) if you need a hotel room maybe i could just say you're my brother and get the discount :)

    Hey Jon...glad to hear you made it! Our club is doing some wheeling at Walker Valley this Sunday...it's not that far from Seattle if you're interested. It is supposed to be not so fullsize friendly so it should be fun.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Re: NW CK5\'ers. Moab 2002

    Count me in, I thought the first half assed plan was to wait for Rene to get down here and then convoy, anyone know if Shannon is going, and come on Frank if it's the jog you'll miss then you can always run back the half mile on the way to pick up the parts that fell off my truck and if its the venison then I got a whole freezer full and for god sakes somebody bring the convoy song on disc and we'll all talk on our CB's while we listen.

    Re: NW CK5\'ers. Moab 2002

    I think the best bet is to ralley the troops in the Portland area. since most of them are in that area. Then catch I-84..who knows [​IMG] I'm just throwing out ideas.
