    Technically still in - sold off a uber rare NOS FST door and some other bits to get a jump start on my travel expense account....I will however, likely miss GSMTR for other reasons.

    Is this an annual trip? Should I read the details of this year's trip to get my answers (how long is the trip, where are we staying, events etc)?
    a few friends an I are planning a trip next year and I knew we couldn't make this year's trip with y'all so maybe this one.....

    No, not annual. Got planned for 2017 but that fell apart and got pushed back to 2018 instead.

    I'd vote for the same time frame as always: First two weeks in October. This would be Oct 1-13.

    in all fairness planning for these trips is becoming an annual event though the trip is not, boo. In any case, 14 months out and really no clue who is going, how we're going to get there or what we're going to do.

    I do know this from lessons learned, for this to be successful ride we need 2 groups of rigs.

    1) a wagon group that wants to do some of the more scenic trails.

    2) a hardcore group that's s a little more interest in doing the things you see on YouTube.​

    These groups ought to be made up of guys (or gals) that know each other, know how to wheel and that have confidence in one another. Moab can get remote pretty easily. With that said, if you are truly (and I do mean truly) interested in going put forth the effort now to go on trail rides and get know each other.

    Can someone put me in touch with the guy "Merlin" with the linked 40 on ORI's? Briefly spoke with him at GSTMR and he offered to provide me with the contact info. for the shop that did his link conversion. Still don't think I can afford to "pay" someone work on my junk, but would like to at least follow up and see what it would cost me.

    It's a time/space versus money thing - don't have enough of either and really think I need this upgrade to safely spend two weeks at Moab.

    Hmmmm, yeah - maybe the name was Sidney, not sure where I got to thinking it was Merlin.

    We're still on Grandpa's list of attendees. I think I'll call him and let him know not to hold his breath for a big group.
