      FYI, there is a group meeting at City Market at 7am tomorrow for Golden Spike, and another group meeting at 8am for an easier trail.

      Where are you staying?

      Still undecided if I am going to head to Moab after work tomorrow. No one is available to go so would just be me. Could head out with just the Explorer or head down in my car and find an open seat and be spotter / picture taker. Either way would end up sleeping in a vehicle.

      Wow!!

      What a surprise for Char and I last night. The group did a great job of keeping a secret. We had no idea anything was planned for after dinner.

      Char and I are honored and humbled by the support from the group. From the speeches, to the plaque and gift from the group, last night's presentation really made me feel that I created something worthwhile. Not just a forum, but an extended family.

      Thank you all for making this forum great!!!:chug::biggthump

      Yeap, and I just lost that spare too. Made it 200 miles on it into Page, AZ then it started coming apart and lost all the air a block before Walmart. Stuck here now till they reopen in the morning. I'm out of spares now.:roll:
