    Speaking of being old, this picture is making me feel kind of old. One of the kids in the picture was 3 years old. Now he's 16. DSC01036.JPG

    We'll be there. Though we're trying to work out the daily scheduling logistics since my husband will be attending the Bronco Safari. ;)

    I'm an officiant; just tell her you found someone who'll do the ceremony on the trail in Moab. :cheers: Congratulations, by the way!

    We have some Moab news - the registration is still going to be open "mid-February", but they have announced that they are moving the CM headquarters to Kane Creek Campground for CM 2018. I'm not familiar with it, but it's three miles south of Moab on the Colorado River. Check out cruisemoab.com for more details.

    Well, sold the FJ40; was supposed to get the HJ61 Monday but totally scammed and had to walk away from the deal.
    Now Moab is dependent on finding another rig by then. Otherwise; I'll be the girl waving madly at the LC's from her husband's gunmetal colored Bronco.

    looks like I'm planning on making the short trip out! Not the full event. Still waiting for registration to open but I made reservations at the host campground for May 3-6th

    Oh man - I noticed that registration opened up so I went on and I think I got the Kokopelli run. Here is what I signed up for. Post up what you guys are doing.

    Good job Larry! Hopefully you got Kokopelli - you will love it. I did it a few years ago. I decided to try San Rafael Swell - it's also an overnighter, but just one night - Kokopelli is two nights. San Rafael would run Wednesday and Thursday.

    For Friday, I've got 1) Hells Revenge; 2) Fins & Things; and 3) Seven Mile Rim.

    For Saturday, my first choice is Elephant Hill, but I'm waitlisted, then 2) Top of the World, and 3) Jax Trax.

    It sounds like we should get our trails confirmed by early April. Looking forward to it!
