Brian call me before you head to True Grit, we'll meet yall for dinner, (I asume th folks are coming)

Will do! Just my father will be coming with me this time. Have a safe trip Marshall and I will see you in a few days.

Scott, sorry to hear you cant make it, I was looking forward to wheeling with you again. Next year for sure although it may be in a different CO wheeling hot spot.

So my plan Friday is to check into my hotel in Ridgway Friday around 3 then head west out of Ridgway to partially run Last Dollar Road into Telluride and back. Then it will be to True Grit for dinner.

That should get you a decent one. Make sure it is 40 channel, some of them are only half that. What brand is it? Wal-mart site doesnt show it. Uniden and Cobra are both good brands. A CB will be really helpful on the trails so do what you have to do to have it on the trip! Dont forget a mag mount antenna.

It is a Cobra 19 or 29. I don't remember which. I think I could get it mounted and hooked up to a magnetic antenna before I leave, but I don't know if I can get it tuned. I read a thread about tuning, but how much is a tuner? I didn't see anything like that in Radio Shack or Walmart.

Don't worry about tuning it right now - it will run fine out of the box.

Yep, good or bad?

Mine works-
I am no expert though


I was wondering if we can get an updated list of the "for sure" going to make it's

Also-
which CB channel will we be using? Just in case someone is late--

I think thats right, any corrections?

CB Channel 1, backup ch 3 (if too much radio traffic, etc.)

1st post has been updated as well with this info.

Hokie, I'm coming by myself if you are looking for someone to ride the trails with. I know it isn't as fun as driving.:(

I'm going to try to hitch a ride with Jim/Jenni and then just hop from vehicle to vehicle while on the trails :)

I really want to buy a SUV but I found out Monday that I might be moving to Charleston, SC in the spring, thus negating the need for a 4x4

EDIT: But I still have my eye on this guy...
He had the 5R55E rebuilt about 8k miles ago (From how he described the problem it sounds like a EPC solenoid, 2-3 flare, but the shop still told him to rebuild it to the tune of ~ $2k:eek:) so he's pretty proud and not willing to come down much in price
