Well it will be good to see ya either way.. On a side note three of the Texas Gang have made it to Albuquerque, NM.

Can't drive this year. I'm 2,000 miles away.... six days to drive there and back not including time spent in Moab. I don't have the vacation time or money to do it. Plus, fuel to feed the Explorer for the trip would cost twice the price of airfare + car rental... something else I cannot afford. On top of that I've been healing from a hernia and surgery, and have not been able to work on the new Explorer this year to get it ready for the trail. It still does not have lockers, rocksliders, etc.

It was fly out or not come at all. I chose to fly. :)

Demon members are holed up in a hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico for the night. So far Red has been the only problem child. She vapor locked twice in the middle of an intersection and now has developed a serious vibration on the front end, which may be the front drive shaft. Worst case scenario, is just to pull the drive shaft and fix it at Moab.

Russell pulled some good video from his dash cam and hopefully by the end of the trip he will have quite a compilation to share.

Kris, Russell, and I will be pulling out around 8am and hopefully be at the KOA camp sites before 5pm.

Define crapped out. We have a complete driveshaft, but it has old u-joints in it. If his shaft is rebuildable, we can do that too. Regardless, we have the parts and tools to get something together.
