I won't get my HDJ81 80 Series 4.2L 24v TD until Late Nov .. I can't wait to go out on group runs ..

We passed some RHDs on Fri as we were heading into Monticello, UT and my passenger has never seen such beasts before. She kept turning her neck as they whizzed by us on 491 :rofl: . A local bud has a HJ42 but I can't get myself to drive it. My brain simply refuses to comply :bang:

It takes about 10 minutes to get used to RHD and add another 5 if it’s a manual.:steer:

The HDC Camp out went off very well. Had Good weather, a good camp site, and we all got to spend some time getting to know each other a little better.
Most folks saw some new country, not far from where they live. We got to try out our equipment and see each other's ideas for camping out of their rigs.
At least were I was standing, not one word of politics, just good old conversation about how nice it is to get out of town.
Some of us got some target shooting in, others got in some hiking, and some got to do some backcountry exploring.
Looking forward to doing this again. Thanks to all who made it out and see ya next time.

Driving on the wrong side of the rig is easy. Driving on the wrong side of the road takes some adjustment.

Great pics, looks like a great time. Juan, tell us about the 'Mog!

Moab was great. I haven't been in a while and was so beautiful. Can anyone recommend a tire shop, preferably on the east side of town, that will fix tires that shops like Discount won't fix? I picked up part of a key on a dirt road somewhere and had to put a plug in it.

Yes, Driving on the left side of the road is problematic .. Especially making Right turns .. Driving on the Right Side of the car if you are right handed seems more natural to me ..

I've used Vernado (?) on the corner of San Mateo and Comanche, I think for these types of repairs.

Jeff, sorry I missed this one. Looks like a nice spot and would have been nice to explore.

I was keeping a close eye on it, but had to get to southern CO to winterize the plumbing at our cabin ahead of the incoming storm.

Thanks to all who shared pics.

Weatherizing is a necessary job for any mountain cabin. Glad you enjoyed the pictures. The area is worth exploring. I have not seen near all of the connecting roads.
