We had a great time. The Colorado river is MUCH lower than last year.

Not much snow in the mountains this year, according to what I know from my time on Co4x4.

Made it to Moab. The condo is very nice. The a/c is cranked.

No trailer parking.

Oh you are down the street from where I am every time we go down. We stay at Rim Village. If you were to hang a left at that stop sign on your way to the gas station you would run into them about a mile and a half down.

Good. I could not pull OD but 4th and 60 mph was easy. I liked decents better in the Tundra. Drop to 3rd and would hold 70 mph going down. I got the same milage the entire trip. 11.1 mpg.

Pulling a rig that weighs 5k is going to be very different.

Yeah, but you'll have a new truck and gooseneck then. You can't haul two rigs on the trailer you have now anyway.

Not much to report. No wireless in the condo so using the hotspot on my Droid. 3G isn't the greatest out here either.

Forgot the camera yesterday...

We took 128 today. Very windy and very hot. The 128 is a very nice drive.








When you get bored in Moab you can always stack pepper.

Had a great day at Arches National Park. Can't upload pics until I get home.

Off to a dinner cruise on the Colorado river with JCF.
