    If it would be at all helpful I could cancel my plans on the weekend of Nov. 16-17. That's the only thing I can change.

    Rick you shouldn't have to cancel your plans, but I appreciate the enthusiasm. :thumbsup:

    I think the beginning of October, is still going to be to hot out there. And later in November, you start getting into holiday season. I'm game for when ever. Not sure what I'll bring, Navajo is still under construction, JP needs new front wheel bearings (have to order) and I have yet to tow with the Ranger. But I did get a brake controller in it....so that's a win. Worst case I'll just drive the Ranger out and we'll see what it can do.. just not doing the ditches with it...:nono:

    I know the feeling.. JP to get driven on the weekend to do errands, but with it needing bearings and had it try to lock up the wheel on the passenger side, so it just sitting now, collecting dust and paint fading.:(

    Wife is doing the implant surgery process (takes 6 months to do it right), Isabella is getting TPLO surgery to repair a torn CCL in her left rear stiffle joint (knee) at the end of October, recovery is anywhere from 12-16 weeks (and still problems for 6+ months afterwards). Both are emptying the piggy bank, Isabella's care level will be sky high for a few months (having to do PT with her, and she's not allowed to run or jump for several months), so I'm trapped here for a while..

    We have often done MLK weekend at Truck Haven. I have the weekend open, but is it too close to KOH for you?

    Our lives have been in such turmoil that I haven't wanted to make plans only to have to bow out. As of now there is nothing going on for us over the next few months.
