    Heh. I lived in Texarkana for 24 years. At the time Smokey was made (which was one of the major plot lines), Coors wasn't available east of Texas, so they went to Texarkana to get some.

    Uhhh... except that Texarkana, Texas, was dry then, and remained dry until 2015. Texarkana, Arkansas, was wet, but you couldn't buy Coors there.

    The annual "Bandit Run" of Trans Ams still runs through both towns, though.

    Shipping has been arranged, somehow things are falling into place quite nicely. Also I would suggest anyone going to the white wash sand dunes, that is our destination on the way from Salt Lake City to Moab get themselves a dune flag.

    something like that. There will be a meeting in February to go over final details.

    That is pretty cool, if I did stuff more often Iíd get one. But I donít think Iím out enough to justify the cost

    Those work well for getting messages back and forth to friends and family when you're not in cell service/soloing somewhere, however if you plan to rely on it to get you help in the event of an emergency it is NOT a PLB replacement. If I had to choose between a spot and a PLB I'd take the PLB every day. The support network is significantly more robust behind the PLB. It's also a true piece of SAR gear, and the new versions are 121.5 MHz beacons while also utilizing satellite to transmit Lat/Long's to SAR. There's a good writeup at the link below.

    It is sneaking up, and the calendar is filling up, and time is running out to get things ready! I look at maps and trials and youtube every day, and i think i'm happy with the routes in the first post, but everything can be changed while we are out there.


    There has been some talk from some of the folks in the hotel group about camping for one night. I like this idea, and I have put some thought into it, and I think monday night would work best. We can find a spot in the Sand Flats Recreation Area, as that is where we are wheeling that day, and make it happen. Of course if this happens, and the exact day is dependent on weather, but i think it would be nice to spend a night outside if it works out. I'd still want to go to the hotel and get ready in the morning because im extremely set in my morning routine, and that where we would depart from for the next day. So if anyone is interesting in spending one night outdoors we can certainly make it happen without impacting those that don't.

    Thanks Dave!

    Us being at the very beginning of when things start to happen in Moab, and on a Monday night, I think we won't have any issue finding a site or two close together. Two vehicles is the max per site. If we everyone wants to camp that night I will attempt to reserve one of the larger group sites. Currently i can't because the government is shut down

    Thanks for all of your hard work Joe. I am on board with whatever works for everybody. I love the idea of spending a night under the stars. Romantic...

    Another campsite suggestion for you - a bit south of town but beautiful, no reservation required, and with plenty of room for everybody. If you look up "Russo Puppy Party" on Google maps (great name) it'll take you right there

    It's just BLM public lands with designated camping areas. Free to use up to 14 days. Definitely my go to site in moab and you won't have any problem getting enough space the dates you'll be there
