Life comes at you fast.

So I have been doing a ton of soul searching over the past 8 or so months. Trying to figure out what it is about. The highs the lows a big box of crap that is over flowing.

With a buddy committing suicide a little over 2 weeks ago, and another last night. (last nights hurt a ton, great family friend for almost 40 years) I have figured while I am young I am going to do what I want. I am going to not let life come at me but me RUN TO LIFE.

So what I am saying is I need to find 2 other guys with jeeps. I have a diesel (4 door) and a 35 foot flat bed trailer- (39 feet including the tongue) My plan is to tow 3 jeeps out to moab for a week or 2. The fuel out and back is just under 300 a person.

So this is a little of topic and a little trail but I figured it fit more here.

Anybody want to do a moab run???? Buellar Buellar Buellar!!!!

I would even be willing to stop on the way and pick people up who would want to tag along!!!!

LETS DO IT!!!

^ that is what I was planning on doing. I might just roll it all into one trip if I can not get anybody to go. I have a plan to move back to my where I call home. Might just make a week long stop in moab to wheel a LOT . Wish I could do i sooner but by myself it would cost to much.

sorry to hear bout the loss man, my senior year in highschool the last three months of school i had 3 friends committ suicide it was a rough year. but you know what helps me is seeing the seasons change and know that life goes on, it sucks not being able to see my friends ever again and not knowing if i could have helped them. i try to take it one day at a time and know that i will see them again in a better place. keep your head up. oh and im from new york im sure gas to moab would cost me about 1500bux lol

Worst part bout it, the guy tried to OD 2 weeks ago, they took him to ER(they pumped his stomach). Released him the next day but never got a physic eval.

To the moab trip just get to chicago and load it up on the trailer cheap after that!

Dang it JD.... You have had a rough couple of weeks. I'm sorry to hear about it. I don't know how you feel about such things, but I firmly believe that there is a plan for all of us, and that we just have to surrender to it. You are in my prayers.

You wanna take my husband? He needs to get away! I'll send him your way, but not sure I'd send 'rita with him.... She's mine! (dang I'm possessive)....

When are you planning to do this? I want to go there big time but I can't got between May and and until mid August. Do you have a camper or something or will it be a hotel situation? I am really interested in this but now right now.
