      I'm in. I see a few stock trucks so I won't be at a complete disadvantage. Looking into some metal guards for underneath.

      Yes, lol!!! - that Xbox, tablet, and Gameboy are excellent distractions for long dives, turbulence, and bad weather. Nothing else matters when they're into a game - especially online. He'll live without it for a few days. Just past the new moon. Probably a great night photography opportunity too. Count us in. Thank you.

      @Rick, I appreciate you including me in. Regretfully I can't make it. I'm starting a new engineering degree up in Seattle in September since I recently left the Corps. Anyone is welcome to hit me up if you swing through the greater Puget Sound area!

      I was planning on being out there that weekend already. I sure wish I had a more capable Explorer though!

      Looks like I did not get hit with the contract change where I work which means I still have a job.... Putting the time in next week...

      I know I haven't been wheeling enough when the Van (tow rig) still has the stuff in it from last years trip. I guess 3 months is enough time for me to get both vehicles ready (Explorer just needs the once over... no idea what the Van needs). I guess I could go old school and not tow the explorer this time...

      I just wanted to bump this thread and remind anyone interested that this is not a "Big Dog" run. Anyone who is a member, likes camping and off-roading is invited. If you are new to off-roading, this is the trip for you to get your feet wet.

      I may be in. I finally got my truck running (really well, actually) but I'm supposed to be at a conference that week, so I need to see what I can do to work this in.

      that would be our kids, as long as the electronics have power and service.. my recent build has given our 15 year old son and 13 year old daughter ideas.. as long as they help me work on their toys, I'll call it a win!!
      unfortunately we won't be attending, we still haven't been able to drag ourselves to Carlisle, an that event is only 3 hours away.. :(

      I hate to say it, but it doesn't look like I will be able to make this run.

      I have eye surgery scheduled for Oct. 5th. It's an invasive procedure, with a relatively lengthy recovery time of 2 to 6 weeks. I will not be able to lift, strain, or get jolted around until the eye heals or it could hemorrhage.

      I am still going to prepare for the run, and hope for the best, but it's a long drive out, and a lot of jarring around on the trail. If it doesn't feel right, I am not going to push it.

      no reason to risk damage for a run, can always reschedule.

      Can we get a roll call of all those who can/will make it?

      I'm in

      I'm planning on it but starting to question it.:confused:

      Got a lot going on right now, and running out of time. Trying to get our new house done in time before Thanksgiving, need to work on JP and fix parking brake issues, Super Duty need the Trans fluid changed before then, and the Fridge in the camper needs to get fixed, after it died last trip or two.
