      Agh... Looks like we are out. I have to many projects going (Work and home) and just can't get my Mountaineer ready in time. That and I found out some frustrating news on the trailer I bought. It has some title issues that I need to work through. Hopefully next year I can make it again.

      Daydreamingly threw it into the google. 23 hour drive. Yikes. And, I guess, bump?

      Well, it looks like I'm going to make it down this year. My Explorer is as ready as it has been in years. Lol. My nephew will be down with his Jeep and staying in Canyonlands with me. We are arriving on the 30th and leaving on June 5th or 6th. Im curious who is still planning on showing up?

      Pics or it didn't happen, right ;)

      Just had this done this morning. So far so good... I go back in the morning for a post-op appointment.

      So disappointed I won't be joining you in Moab this year :( rick_patch.jpg

      Rick, I hope you heal up good and quick. Man, this getting old stuff has to quit.

      This thread is just getting weird to me. I'll get pictures I guess, us, all alone, lost, broken stuff, drinking mud water. I hope i don't have to chew off my ankle or something-

      For those who are still going to Moab, please take, and share a lot of photos. I can't even express how disappointed I am that I cannot join you this year and would really like to feel like I'm still part of what's going on even though I'm stuck home.

      My recovery has been slow. Due to complications I have been to the doctor every day since last Thursday:banghead:

      Hope you are feeling better Rick. We made it to Canyonlands Campground around 6 today. We are at campsite 22 on the second row. We plan on hitting the market in the morning before heading out. Stop by if you are around!

      Two weeks post op and I still have really bad double vision. Vision is still blurry as well. Supposedly it will all clear up with more time.

      Have a great time out there and be safe:chug:

      Well, I talked to 67truckguy who suggested we all meet up at the City Market at 9:00 AM Friday ( 6-1-2018)

      We also trolled the KOA looking for an Explorer but didn't see one so we came back home

      Drove up Kane Creek Drive today. it's a nice scenic road, we got further away then our 2 gallons of water would have lasted and turned around about 5 miles after the no more camping sign.

      couple of pictures, I have a ton of em

      edit. Having a "security issue" which is preventing pics uploads, will try later

      I have a nail in my rear driver side tire. It's a new tire so I don;t want to plug it.
      67truckguy Found a tire service which opens at 7:00 AM and hope I can make the 9:00 time. Is 10:00 too late?

      Yeah, I know a plug will work, and work well, but a patch is better
