Back to our scheduled activities, or lack thereof. Let us try to nail down at least one group get together at the north camp as proposed and enjoy camaraderie and Mel's beans. Mel should suggest a day and time that works for him since we are expecting him to do the heavy lifting while we yak and swill beer.
I had mentioned a sunday afternoon ride followed by raiding Mel's BBQ, However Mel's idea is better with a possible afternoon get together. Could the Seven Mile Rim be done in the morning followed by the North camp shenanigans? The advantage is that Sunday we are all available and will be north of town anyways. Done right there might be time to ride early, offer showers @ KOA for non-KOAers then return for the party.
This might be too much for one day for those who arrive saturday after a long journey, so the ride portion should be elective.
What say ye?

Fred on all my dive trips the first dive is a get wet dive easy 20 to 30 feet, for some they have been out of the water for sometime and have to get back in the groove.

And the STEAK If I bring up Costco meat I don't want it in a ice chest for 4 or 5 days as I would put it in the chest Thursday so I am thinking of just getting it local.

Other than Bodi and a buddy who seem to have to take off sometime Sunday 22nd we should all be up for a full day of fun. Get wet dive into the surrounding hills followed by socializing and hopefully the BBQ? Mel, others. this OK?

Whatever you all decide to run is fine with me since I've been on most all of the runs around Moab and will be back down there again April 1st for 5 days. Since I have a flight to catch I will be leaving Monday afternoon. If some of you take 7 mile on Sunday I will join that ride and if not Mike and I will probably run up Poison Spider across Golden Spike and down Gold Bar back to camp before dinner.

I am making my final load out this morning and getting on the road. I am going to do some wandering in Nevada on the way over to Moab, intending to be there Friday afternoon or evening.
I will be easy to spot. White Chevy pickup with my Wilderness 5th wheel trailer with a motorcycle trailer in tow with both TW's and a BBQ pit on it.

Mel, you gonna take the Northern Nevada RailRoad steam locomotive in Ely? Tour their museum at least? Well worth the delay. Maybe I'll see you on the road, I'll try to head out Thursday, maybe overnight @ Great Basin National Park and visit Lehman caves.

90 minute steam train ride is a memory maker.

Time just caught up, been waiting for this day, one day pack up and get going. Wow, been waiting sooooooo long for this to happen. Will be so glad to catch up you all down there. Will be toting some firewood, a quad, TW on a 5500 dodge flatbed. Honk at me if you see me so we can hook up.

I will have an Alaskan license plate on that red dodge, easy to spot.

Along with getting everything packed and ready to go, we gotta make sure Georgie is too. So we decided to give her a bath.


Not sure what happened? Bad water? Wrong dog shampoo? Something doesn't seem quite right!
