You can take the Disco and I'll take your D90 to Moab for you

I would love to stay in a hotel but can't since she wants to camp and she has all camping gear ready. Maybe I can convince her to camp at Ramada one night. What is the rate?

I guess we won't make it The ex was suppose to watch the kiddos but decided not to and go to a concert instead We are having hard time finding someone on a short notice to watch the kids. If we don't make it this time, we are going sometime in May.

Mike, Mr. Workaholic is right. We were suppose to leave Thursday morning, if I find someone to baby sit we can meet up somewhere but just you know my D90 can only go 70 mph.

P.S. Do you have a red 90?

Hope everything works out for you to make it... Not to concerned about how fast I go.

i've got a black 94... with the original ratty old ST. The only red on mine is the blood covering it after breaking off damn near every bolt on that thing.

do you have a "fox" sticker on the back of your 90? I saw a red one up at the CU campus about a week ago.

Yousef pull your kids out of school and take them with...

Thats what we are doing. The kids will get a more education in Moab --dino footprints and pictographs- -than they will get in school!

Here's the Proof

What a great time!!!!!!!!!

Youseff proved once again he is the articulation king.
Jabber figured out what the center diff. lock is for, and is still finding sand is his shorts.

It will take at least 3 months to wipe the grin of my face

This is the best Moab trip by far. Camping with Mike J and his buddy Dave was a blast.

This definitely a great trip! First time with the D90 off road. Lot of great people and fantastic trails!!! I'll try and get my pics and video posted this week.

Mike, luckily bathing in the Colorado, helped get rid of the sand!! And I knew what the diff-lock was; I just didn't know mine didn't work... I'm going to try and get it fixed before Chinaman's.

Yousef, Definitely had a blast!!! Mango had the time of his life.... Maybe we'll get him to by a rover. Birdy is still sleeping!! haha

OMG, every time I remember the name Mango I I hope he didn't get offended by me calling him Mango all the time. He is a great guy. Let me know when he comes to town, me and Kristy would love to hit the mountains with you guys again.

So you gonna try to make it to Chinaman's this weekend?

He has a great sense of humor.... He knows we're just kidding with him; beside, it dies down after a while.

He's been talking about coming back in a month or so... we've been talking about another fly-fishing/wheelin around CO trip.

Looks like i'm not going to be able to make Chinaman's this weekend! I've got a busy week and I'm not going to be able to get to the diff-lock until saturday. Next time you're thinking of going out.... give me a call! I'm headed out to Wash DC next weekend... But so far i'm open all next month. Once I get my diff-lock fixed I wouldn't mind doing Carnage.
