    There's a minute chance I might be able to rustle up someone in the area if you guys get into trouble. I can't guarantee anything but I could at least post up and see if the brotherhood could take care of you. PM me if you want my cell #.

    Good luck guys! Use your time there to your advantage. It will only pay off later. Hit me up if you want to know some good places to go exploring. I've still got my maps from when I was there. From a fellow tech-er. :D

    thanks for everything guys, we got here into laramie at about 3:00 yesterday, got all our crap moved... my bed and part of coles bed got soaked. :mad: So did some of our pillows, and other crap.:mad: so we had to sleep on the floor last night, but all is well.

    Coles tranny did hold up to the trailer, but i think its about due for a change again. My blazer ran perfect!! i did have 1 trail fix though. when i was at the gas pump in Casper, fuel started leaking. thank god i had extra hose and hose clamps.

    today, we went to walmart, got food, and little stuff we needed. as we sit here jamming to tool and queensryche, with sound waves coming through surround sound, which is hooked up to my brand new 26 inch flat screen tv, we just got done eating pizza, and we're loving livin on our own.

    last night, the welcoming committee came over after we got done unloading 2 mattresses and 2 boxsprings and all of our tables, etc... they were drinkin, they were all goin to wyotech, and they are our neighbors. they didnt have ANYthing good to say about laramie, or wyotech. it kind of pissed me off, but they were somewhat cool. (they seemed as the cling-on type if you know what i mean.)

    i have some pretty cool pics of the ride down here. we were in rain almost all of the way. i will post them tomorrow.

    we were in the rain pretty much all the way, which was good for the temperature of our vehiculars, but it was kinda glum. we headed out of my house at 05:30. it was a beautiful sunrise.
