    The April fools was a joke. Things have changed up here and I'm not able to expand on it much yet, but it sounds like I only have a job for two more weeks.

    Hate to say this, but it's not looking promising for Char and I either. I won't know for sure for a few days yet. :(

    Hmm, what if everybody just holds off on moab until 2015, and we all meet up on a fall run, like smorr or ccr? :scratch:

    Just an idea to get the group all together.

    Looks like this trip is coming down to the wire on a go/no-go for many. I think without Rick, it will take the impetus out of many people for going. I know seeing Pumpkin and meeting the Explorer Forum creator is a big draw.

    To be honest, I was never on the list and I'll already be on a trail somewhere before and after the Moab trip..:dunno:

    Sadly I still have to pick and choose what trips I can take then it always comes down to the ones I can afford between my jobs..

    I don't see why anyone would back out due to who is going or not if you have planned and can afford it..:scratch:..youu never know who might show up at the last moment..

    I'm set up pretty good for trail support, (plenty of tools on board) so I can amuse myself with acts of kindness on the trail...

    We won't be alone on the trails.

    Like you, MrQ, I have already taken the time off and intend to go it alone, if it comes to that.

    If it does come to that; I'll create a one entry, one picture post of my Lily white b&t at Moab and close the post. .. .

    I was afraid that might happen :( Things have been really tight this year. Char is working part time now, April taxes really drained us. I do quarterly taxes for my business and came up a bit short in what I put in last year, so I had to make it up in April. Then I had to make a larger contribution for the first quarter '14 taxes to ensure I don't get behind again this year.

    Hey, if all you guys are bailing 'cause I decided to show up, I can go down to the Overland Expo for the weekend . . .

    Seriously though, all the best to you guys, hope you can make it out, but four-wheeling in Moab just seems like our number 1 priority . . . Realize it may be lightly attended event compared to year's past (or even last year), but it'll still be a blast. . .

    All true. If I thought mine could make it through a couple of trails without being dragged by Ted , I might consider putting myself into further debt getting there every year. haha

    Fixed it for ya..:p:

    Moab has to be the big kids Disneyland...Now if someone could find a way to make discount travel packages for us and our vehicles I bet more could attend..:biggthump

    But I think that is part of the experience also...When you finally can afford the trip you are in the group that could afford it that year..Kind of makes each trip to Moab even that much more special...:D
