Thought about going this year. Anyone around here going? Sounds like it could be a good time.
I am going, come hell or high water. I have got wrap a deal on a trailer, but I hope things will work out on it. I would like the company of a second rig going with me if you want to come.
i wouldn't mind going back and actually wheeling this time
instead of picking up broken trucks
You wheeling Jeff, you mean you actually have something that is trail worthy and not in 400 pieces?
You have wheels to go?????????????????????
I could possibly be persuaded to ride shotgun with someone, just would have to sit down and study the feasibility, i.e. $$$$$$$$$$$ of making the trip. I could supply the tunes via XM
You could go with me, but I am out of seats, of course unless you and the wife want to fight it out . I can't seem to stir anyone up that is going local or in the state much less. I guess I will be making the drive with just the wife and I .
Can't stir up anyone local? Musta lost my phone #: :
well, no blazer at this time
but i do have a cherokee or two and i just need to throw in the tranny in the big blazer
Johnboy, you are welcome to come along, but figured you could not get the time off. If we can figure a way to fit 2 rigs on a 25" trailer you can even have a transport to and from, of course helping on fuel, diesel is getting expensive.
What's the dates? I haven't taken but two of fifteen vacation days I got comin'. I might be able to handle a trip that way.
We are leaving here the morning of Sept 28, driving from here to Denver and staying the night in a hotel. The next day we are driving from Denver to Moab and camping for the weekend. The general plan is to leave there on the morning of Tuesday Oct. 4 and take the same route back, and be home on the night of the 5th. I took of the 28th-8th so I had some time to relax when I got home.
when are we going to put that tranny in jeff its just sitting at my house.
i guess i should go and pick it up
i got another rig to use for a parts runner
Think we are going.
I think I have the wife talked into going this year. She seems to think Moab in Oct will be hot. ????? Should know more by this next week.
I have talked to people that have gone in the past, it is actually cooler there than here. I understand the average high is about 80* and lows for that time of the year is in the 50's. So need need to worry about being too hot.
Hey Krennen, if you don't have any special reason for going to Denver I would definitly not recommend going that way to Moab. It would be a hell of alot cheaper to take I40 to Gallup, New Mexico, exit 21, shoot North on highway666 to Moab. Why I say cheaper is due to price of fuel on 40 is about 30 cents cheaper, the hills on 40 are smaller then the mountains on 70, and the distance is about 150 miles shorter. From here to Gallup is a 9 hour drive, Gallup to Moab is a 4 hour drive. Thought I'd pass that on to ya.
Thought I would bring this back up and see how many are actually going.
I'm out, and I'm pretty sure Krennen is out too. He's getting married this Saturday.
I'm out also. Got in-laws coming into town the same time and apparently everytime I leave the freaking county all hell breaks loose.................
I guess Ill be the lone rep from this section of the board. Thats scary....
