      I know we have talked a little about this but it is time to start making reservations and such.
      I have put in for time off for May 16 to 24 it is not approved yet and if it is I could run into troubles with a audit we will have this spring at work.
      I would like to 5-7 days on the trail and have 4 days for travel time. My biggest obstacle right now is child care. The wife is wanting to come along this year so I will probably stay at the adventure inn again.

      Finally got the gears setup and air locker squared away on rear 60 just need to get new rotors and it will be ready to swap out the 9" on the Bronco.

      Going to start on front 60 tomorrow should be quicker now that I know more of what I am doing.

      I'm in, or better stated: "We're" in. . . Terri and I will definitely be there for 4+ days in Moab; we'll haul the Adventure Trailer and stay at Canyonlands. Have not fleshed out the itinerary yet, but will probably book-end Moab with some National Park visits or other regional camping. . .

      So. . ., what's in the sleigh for you? New engine? D44 SAS? 'Nother sticker?

      Reservation made at Canyonlands for a small RV spot.

      A month ago, there weren't any RV spots, now there seems to be some available.

      I Guess Casa Verde gets to see Moab :)

      I have my reservations made for the 15th to 23rd at Canyonlands. I will bring either the truck camper or motorhome it will be a slower trip, that's probably a good thing.

      I not sure if I actually arrive Sunday or Tuesday

      This weekend, Abby is in for some UP grades at Kevin's shop in Mt Vernon.

      I'm sure we can convince Paul to set up a BBQ at his 'Man Cave' in Tacoma some time in March or April to make additional repairs/upgrades and plan travel.

      With getting the anti wrap bar welded in I got the last big mod done tonight. Still lots of little things to do such as adding gussets to just about everything i added to the suspension and then the electrical stuff like the 2m/70 radio and ARB compressor. Finish the paint on the body and then start loading it out, which is going to be challenge as I have to have it be able to have 3 car seats. Still do not know if Mom and kids are coming So that also means i need to have the truck and camper ready and the motorhome because it will be last minute knowing who is going.
