    Well, looks like I'll be moving to Tucson in a few weeks. Had a job offer that is just too good to be true. Anyway, for now, I'm not bringing my K5. Not sure I ever will. I'd need asecure place and a trailer to get it there. Hat eto get rid of it just yet.

    So, Who's all in the close area? How far from Tucson do you go to wheel? Better yet, how close are the trails?

    Thanks for chiming in ;)

    There are a bunch of trails around Florence junction. Guys from Tucson and Phoenix go there all the time. There are some around Tucson, they are having the trail dust days in a week or two. There are some killer trails around Mamoth, not to far from Tuscon. You need to find a way to bring your rig because the weather is about to get nice and there will be tons of wheeling all winter.

    Well, basically I got an offer at Davis-Montham AFB in Tucson as a government contractor. Offer is way to good to be true. Actually thinking of selling everything I have except my crew cab F350 & 85 K30.

    In order to bring my K5, I'd first need a trailer and also a secure place to store it. Not for sure what I'm gonna do with the K5, all of my parts in the garage (doubler, t-cases, hydro assist, etc), and my camper.

    ACtually thinking of just getting out of all elements of the off-road thing and just getting a quad or bike. Who knows? Only time will tell.

    And yes, I plan on leaving Colorado for good. Gonna finish fixing up th ehouse and just sell it. Don't want to deal witht hte renting thing.

    I'll put you in line. Already have a list :D Most likely gonna sell my K5 and eveything. Looking into my future. most likely gonna end up in MO after AZ & I'm sure I'll partner up with my brother racing stock cars instead of four wheeling.

    Sorry to see you go Mark, best of luck with the new job.

    We should probably have some type of send off get together before you leave.

BEST OF LUCK, you can camp at my place anytime you get to come back to "COLORADO, GODS COUNTRY, AMERICA". BYE friend! For anyone that doesn't know Mark he will give you the shirt off his back and help you put it on!

    Damn Mark...this sucks.

    This means I won't have another incident where my spotter takes pictures of damage that he's causing :(

    Or someone to tell me to oil the u-joint AFTER I put it on...so I look like a dumbass :(

    But especially someone who constantly threatens to steal back "his" $20 pickup cab :(

    ;)

    sh!tload of stuff.
