Jim, it's best if we don't use 4 letter expletives on The Forum. Please refrain from referring to "work" in the future and make up some other excuse. Also, please remind me, when I see you next, to tell you a story about Asians and tour busses.

He should have gotten fancy, Randy, and said employment, thus avoiding that 4-letter word.  ::) ;D

Larry, I called yesterday to confirm and ask if any opening prior to Sun. Jane said nothing open as of yesterday but to check back. I am heading to Cortez tomorrow. I would like to get there a few days early.

As much as I hate to offend, I will have to use that 4-letter word.  Chrystal and I have to "work" until Friday so we won't be in early.  We will be arriving Sunday sometime.  Site R54.

Larry,

We stole a spot early last week and will be there Saturday. Keep your britches on! We're just 70 miles away and working our way in...

Hopefully you have taste tested any new restaurants since we were there last year and we can be amazed and amused. Some of the four wheeler people should already be there for the FMCA rally.

Currently a test of the theory that "wet slickrock isn't slippery"is under way. It's Tim Pollock's theory; there are doubters ;D ;D

Sorry, I missed it.  I just read your entry.  I've been working (4 letter -yeah, yeah) and just got around to reading the forum.  Also it's raining out! Let me know the next time anyone is getting together or stop by campground spot 3 and say hello.

Larry,

>>Also it's raining out!<<

Larry you need to take care of this and get rid of the rain before we arrive on Saturday! Left Phoenix today to start working our way to Moab. Today is also the beginning of our 6+ month vacation (vacation in this case is defined as not going to the office).

We're at Blue Mountain - lots of room today! We leave for Moab Saturday, too, coming in a day early so we can aggravate Larry and Kathy.

Wish I was there with you guys!  Unfortunately, my 4 wheeling is being done in the Santa Monica Mountains, through the remains of the Summit fire near Camarillo.  It burned through one of our transmission sites, but fortunately the site itself was not damaged.   CDF did a great job plowing a firebreak around the tower and building and then making a stand to defend the facility - but there's nothing but desolation as far as you can see into the mountains.  Power and phone service are down for at least a couple of weeks while power lines are restrung, which means refilling the generator's fuel tank on a regular basis.

I passed by the Borchard Rd. park-and-ride along Hwy 101 in Thousand Oaks, just north of the fire, and saw it was full of RVs with their slides out.  Then it dawned on me - it was housing for some of the fire evacuees.

Have fun, y'all!

     Hovenweep is one of the best kept secret National Monuments, it is just west of Mesa Verde.  In total, it has several ruin sites, with lots of ancient settlements.  We came across it last year on our way to Moab when we stopped at Mesa Verde and spent a few days exploring the many sites.  Here are a couple of PICS out of many taken while there.

Don't Tell, keep it a secret !! Hovenweep is also where Mike and I lived and worked for 6 years. The roads were dirt back then and it was really a hidden gem. Surprisingly, even though they've paved the roads in, it still remains one of the least visited National Monuments. And it has a nice little campground, no hookups, not big rig friendly, but spectacular scenery and quiet nights, except when the coyotes get to yipping.

All,
     We just received notice that Linda will need a new crown NOW.  It will delay us enough, one week, that I have cancelled our reservation at Portal.  We will miss Moab again.    And for a dentist no less.  But we will still be able to make Alaska.  Our projected departure date is the 17th.
