From the northeast.
I figure I'll need 4 or so days to get out there.

Well, I'm not driving but I'll be there. Flying in and riding shotgun with Yousef. Are you going to make the crazy 3 day drive?

I did it last year in the D90 with all the crap for 2 people so one should be a breeze.

Hmmm this will be one lonely ride Noah. No idea what you guys are talking on pirate, but I might run Indy with Tis on Monday, work and Defender permitting.

BTW, bring lots of spare parts with you.

Yes, I did sign up long time ago but stopped visiting unless someone posted a link to something interesting. Pirate is not my style, I'm not a hard core wheeler nor a fabricator

Noah...I am also leaving on the 10th. I will be meeting another guy (maybe his sons too) in Keene, NH at 6:30 Fr. morning. I live in Meredith, NH, so takes me 1 1/2+ hrs to get there. I will be driving my 90 and he will be towing his 88". You are welcome to tag along. Dave

Dave - I guess that would be fun to caravan out there. Even more fun to get up before 5 AM.

Yousef - I drove cross country twice last year .. I like the long lonely drives

And spare parts! I know. I don't have any "major" spare parts like drive shafts or axles lying around.. but I'll be bringing a fistfull of u-joints and multiple shocks. Hopefully taking it really easy without locking up will bring me home carnage free. And the truck already has HD parts all over it.

Hippert and I are talking about camping, so who up for camping. It's nice if we able to get a good size group at the same camp.

I'm thinking about the campsite on loin back road or trail. It's the one just north of town by the Colorado River. What you guys think?

Having kids is always a plus

I decided I can't wait around any longer so i've been spending today getting the 90 all ready for the trip. I'm going to head out tomorrow morning .. giving me plenty of time to have a leisurely drive to CO and recoup for monday morning.

Mike - I finally found someplace (the only place in maine apparently) that does nitrogen charging on shocks. He was a real nice guy and now I've got my two fox spares with me.
