true, but I get money for unused sick leave and that will help pay for my Alaska trip and after that, it will just depend on if I can get back to town for the next trip :-)

Bad news: it'll be delivered Wed.

Really wish I could make it, to much going on this week for me. Damn real life always gets in the way of Jeeping.
I have to say the first 40yrs of my childhood has been the hardest. Lmao

Sorry brother wish I could go. Be safe, call if you need any help.
From the looks of things timing is bad for everyone, Camping trip, Moab trip, Arizona trip, ect. Seems like real life and bad timing for all. Maybe next year everyone can get together early and figure out Vacations for a trip or two ( Moab , Colorado, ect). From the size of the group at the last Meet & Greet we could have one heck of fun group to go on a really fantastic jeep outing.
Just saying...

That's for sure, I know a secluded meadow on MT Taylor that would be great for a big "jeep event" !

Would loved to have gone... I'm on the east coast right now, and not back until first of July. Currently set up for light camping, and will have a VMI Alpine off road trailer some time late this fall. Hope a fall event can be scheduled.

Looking forward to a trip report from Mt. Taylor.

Sounds like an opportunity to get the tent broken in.
