I'll volunteer to show the newbies how it's NOT supposed to be done :D
LOL. We were all in the same boat the first time we went out there. :D

Gerald, count me in for some brainstorming. Maybe we can give it a family approach like camp jeep. The trip is worth it even if you don't wheel. We can put together some geology and paleontology trips for families. We need to get some new blood. Don't you think old friend?:salute:

The first time I went (in '05) I was just a passenger. Even after driving 7500 miles the previous 10 days, I had a blast. So much so, that I converted my truck over to 4wd and went out there this past May. And if everything goes as hoped, I'll be out there this year with/without the truck (depending on when I get back stateside).

You'll more than likely be going right by me on your way, if you want to go, we can caravan from Jonesboro- (which is just on the other side of Memphis)

i have been doing some math and right now i am going to wait till next year. i will be locked and hopefully have better axle shafts. i expect to spend two days driving and spending over 800 dollars in gas. im not expecting to be able to get the money up in such a short time.

I stopped by Moab on the way home from Salt Lake City the other day, just to show you all how much you can do in Moab with a stock vehicle.

So I ran Hells Revenge . . .








. . . in my Focus. :cool:





J/K :D


Seriously though, check out all the great pics I took from my half day there.

We'll get your truck there and if we have too, we'll pick you up at the Salt Lake City Airport. I already have a plan for this, just need to find a second trailer and we'll be golden.:thumbsup:

Well it looks like I won't be going now. :fire: As it stands now the first of us will be leaving 17 May and everyone out by 2 June. Add a couple of days in Kuwait and another week in Virginia plus flight time. I think they have me scheduled on the last flight out. :mad:

I guess I'll be looking forward to the next T-Haven run as I'll be moving to San Diego in July.:cool:

I sure do :thumbsup: I like the family/camp jeep type of thing. Like I had said, if my wife and 8 yr old stepson make it out we'll hit the trail with the dinosaur footprints on it for sure, and there's plenty of geology and paleontology out there.... also Indian petroglyphs and other family type stuff to explore.

I remember the Colorado Colors Run in 2001 at Ouray. Wabbit [who remembers him?] got some diploma/certificate stock paper to print on and printed out "I survived Black Bear Pass" certificates suitable for framing to those of us that ran that trail. It was a thoughtful clever idea and they looked great. Now when I saw the Top of the World photo it made me think of getting some certificate paper and any newbies/stockers that drove to the Top of the World and got a photo, we could print the photo on some sort of "I Fourwheeled to the Top of the World" certificate. With all of the laptops that will be there I bet someone could also bring a portable color printer and we could make them immediately. Simple, easy, and kind of silly - but hey it's something a little different and just hokey enough to be fun.

I don't know if that's a stupid idea or not, but you said to start brainstorming.... so there's a brainfart to start off with, LOL :)

Yep, I'll be transfering in June/July and will be down there around July/August. Seeing as how I'm getting screwed out of my Moab vacation :fire: ; I'm trying to take a August vacation at Sturgis :D . We'll see. Otherwise I'll be looking for the impossible in San Diego: someplace to live that can accomodate my Ranger, a full size truck, a motorcycle and a 20-25' trailer, be less than $1300/month and prefferablely with a garage.
