Rad. Count me in then. where should I meet up with you guys?

I am staying at Canyonlands. I'll be there Thursday @ noon or so. If you don't catch me there, the morning meets at City Market will work too. It's not a big town, I am sure we'll see each other.:thumbsup:

Chad I got your tire buddy,
I also test drove the Explorer off road yesterday. I should be good to go, mixed up some flexing with some 50 mph washes with some hill climbs and the new rear suspenison ran flawless. I also ran all of my lights and had no electrical issues.

After a 1200 mile drive, the only trail I am doing Thursday is from my camper to the pool with a 6 pak :chug:

I don't know. We'll have to see. Thursday is supposed to be a short driving day, 2 or 300 miles, but right now my plans are to relax and do nothing by the pool. I haven't had any real veg time in a while, and sometimes you just need to shut off your brain and relax.:smoke:

OK so Moab brewery Thursday evening? Also everyone have a safe trip/drive to Moab.. I am heading out Wed A.M. Probably stop somewhere in Colorado for night, and pull into Moab Thursday afternoon.

I drove the Explorer for the first time since changing out the spring. First off, it barely made it out of the garage:eek: The new spring lifted it enough that the roof scraped the garage door for about 3 feet at the back of the truck.

The ride with the shocks mounted correctly is a bit better, but I was pleased with the way it rode with the screwed up shocks:confused:

While doing a "pre-flight" inspection on the trailer, I found a tire with a huge bulge in the tread. Glad I caught that one before it went "BANG"!

Regarding dinner at Branding Iron. The owner is setting up a special dinner deal for us, which will make things go much faster. He's been trying to fax me with the details, but we're having a hard time getting it to go through. I hate faxes:(

This is the best week of my life. This weekend I spent with some of my best friends in a cabin in the mountains, I got my 2LT commission tonight, I graduate from the Academy tomorrow, and I get to finish the week in MOAB!!!
