      Memorial day falls late in 2018, so do we pick the weekend before Memorial Day, or the weekend after?

      Overland Expo West is in Flagstaff May 18-20 which I will be at so my vote would be Jun 1-3rd or later in June also works but then it starts to get hot.

      I voted june 1-3 but i am open to whatever. I need to get my butt in gear and get my explorer ready if i want to go though. My wife and I are in Moab now just to visit and goof off. More or less celebrating my 40th birthday. We are in my wife's 2016 4runner so not getting too crazy. We played around a bit on baby lions back and did a little of Fins and Things. We had to turn around due to snow and ice on a drop that could have ended badly. Dont want to damage the wifeys baby. LOL

      Too many projects & other trips going on, to make it this year. I am planning for an extended trip to Moab in 2019.

      Dont think this year is in the cards for me. Abby isn't all that happy right now and we are looking to upsize the family travel trailer.

      Going to do my best to get there, won’t know for sure for a couple months anyway. I believe the black one can finally make a trip without breaking down. It’s first time in Moab breaking the steering, then it’s next trip in Black Mountain with the drivetrain getting pushed into the radiator, all getting very frustrating! I did fix up an 02 Sport recently, converted it to 4x4 with a manual shift tcase, that I’m sure would be trouble free but probably would only take it to ccr if we get to that.

      I am going to be doing the standard, and live vicariously through all of you, and your picture / video updates of this meet. :popcorn:

      Birdy, I hope to see you again at the CCR meet! :dpchug:

      Just thought of something, daughters graduating this year (I hope) gotta check the date on that. Lot of family coming, not sure when they are coming or for how long. Could be a problem.

      Going with a maybe. Red needs a lot of work (new tires, engine work, leaking axle seals, no a/c, etc) before he's Moab ready again.

      I am a pain in the butt here, but due to work and trying to get some dates locked up I am hoping we get this nailed down soon. June 1-3 is looking like its the slow winner so far. That works with me. :)

      Pretty sure I can make it this year, date does not matter to me as long as I know a couple weeks ahead. May will likely give us better weather than june though, right?

      Maybe my X will even have some halfway decent suspension by then.
      (Xterra that is, not explorer:laugh:)

      Going to be a no go for sure. Graduation is on the 3rd. Hope to see lots of pics of all the fun I miss out on!

      Don't think we'll be there this year...truck won't need work like it's gotten the weeks before the last 3 trips, but it was quite a trip for us from OH....it will happen again, that I have no doubt, but not this year...

      Like a few others, I'll be watching for video and pictures when the time comes!

      Same here, The Explorer needs way too much to be trail worthy. Like LS/locker and lower gears. 3:55s just wouldn't cut it on the trails.
      So looks like at least 2019 or 2020.

      3.55s are not bad at all and I have wheeled open up there with no issue. When I went in '15 we had a guy run a completely stock 1st gen up Top of the World.

      Blitz and I are planning an extended trip to Colorado around this time. We might just sneak a few days in Moab June 1-2 at the beginning of the trip =)

      Count us in at least for Friday/Saturday.

      ...need to get cracking on fixing the truck. Thing is leaking just about every fluid :banghead: except for fuel and still needs the front end regeared.

      Anyone got a spare TTB pumpkin with 4.88 gears already in it? :D
