Wendy,
It was warm enough when we went to bed but it dropped to about 39 last night, so the flannel sheets would be comfy!  But like you we have already switched to the cotton ones and have managed to survive.  ;)  See ya later today.

Had a great day on the first 2006 Moab RV Forum rally offroad trip yesterday.  Went to Musselman arch then up Shaffer trail to the Grand view and returned via Pucker pass.  Photos from this trip are attached.

Chris and Mimi Pennings left Monument Valley just now and should arrive in Portal around 1:00. 
Terry and Betty will stay another day at Monument Valley to enjoy the scenery and rest and relax before the big Moab event.

I am willing to do a planning meeting Sunday at Happy Hour to calendar the week's activities if it has not already been done.  I have lots of ideas for those "up" for fun. If you have a specific activity in mind it would be good to see what days it can be scheduled.  I have post it notes and the white boards .  I will write all down so each knows what is happening and when. 

Monument Valley Pics attached.

Canyonlands by Night Dinner and Boat light show will be Monday night 1 May 2006.  We have been given a group discount so the Dinner and Boat will cost $45.50 per person which is more than $8.00 discount per person.  Per the operators request I will collect the fares then go purchase the tickets Monday morning.  This is a highly rated light show and should be a great fun tour.

Cindy and I are over in Torrey UT (Capitol Reef NP).    We are scheduled to arrive in Moab on Monday.    As I said earlier both of us want to attend the boat and dinner.    However, the earliest I can get to Moab is noon on Monday and maybe even 1 pm.   I can pay cash when I get there.  Is there anyway we can work out a pair of reservations for us

I made a video DVD of portions of our road trip, mostly just  the "Pucker Pass" piece and left it with Ron Ruward.  I've got quite a bit more footage but the computer and video editting software was cantankerous today, so i was only able to get the basics onto a DVD. Will try again later and make available a more comprehensive video of the trip.

Al & Vel: thanks for the still photos and the great panorame shot.

Tom:

Is it possible (or worthwhile) to separate the rally messages from the planning messages in this thread?  Seems like a lot of planning messages to wade through to get to the actual rally fun.

Wish we were there.

Smoky,

Just yesterday I was asked to keep it all in one discussion  ::)

For the most part, the most recent messages in this topic are the "fun" reports. I have my profile set to display the most recent messages first.

FWIW Betty has started a separate events planning topic, so I don't expect to see too many new planning type messages in the topic you're currently reading.

Smoky,

Part of the fun is the planning but you really need to be here to see how fast the schedule changes.  ;D

Where are you now?

Phil  we are in SC....  Tom  I can go to the last page for updates, no biggie.  It just seemed strange to have all the Feb, Mar messages in front of this thread.  I cannot imagine why anyone would want to see all the "I'll be there"  "Ooops, now I have to cancel", and "Can I have Joe's space?", etc messages just to get to the current ongoing rally stuff.   But hey, there are bigger mysteries in life for me to ponder!  ;D

It's gotten to late to cancel and take over someone elses space. All of that gets on before we get here. Now that we're here, we get the planning messages. If you don't want to sort thru all the old stuff, how about resorting so you see all the new messages first?

I for one have on several occasions found it necessary to go back to page 4 or 5 to find a answer for others or myself. If you set your preferences up to disply the last message first there should be no problem sorting through the newest messages while when somebody wants to check on something much earlier they can just go back as far as they need to.

Works well for me.
 Have a great time back East and give Sharon a big hug from us.

We left Moab today [sigh], bidding everyone a fond farewell as they headed out for their morning activities and we closed up for travel.  Now its "happy hour" in Moab and and here we are in the parking lot of the Salt Lake City Camping World where we expect to spend the night.  :P  :-\  :'(

Gary,

Sorry you folks had to leave. Enjoyed the small time we spent together and wish you could have stayed longer. Maybe we'll make it to Moses Lake one of these days.

It was very enjoyable to see you and Nancy again, if only for a few days.  Enjoy your summer in WA and we'll see you again down the road.

I Gary & Nancy,

It was great seeing you again after such a long time.  We enjoyed visiting and doing the off road trip.  Was sorry you couldn't have stayed longer.  Sam & I enjoyed the Canyonlands by Night boat tour this evening.  We are looking forward to you visiting Sam's camp later this year.  Have a safe trip to Moses Lake and an enjoyable summer there.

25 forum members at Moab took the Canyonlands By Night boat tour this evening.  Dinner was served befor departure then we boarded for the tour.  The dinner, tour and light show was great. Mimie had asked earlier what a duch oven was and Chris had the opportunity to introduce her to one.  Attached are some photos taken during the evening.

Nice pictures Ron, keep 'em coming so we can enjoy the rally vicariously. Each day at 6 pm (I think that is 4 pm your time) I pour my single malt and raise my glass pointing to the west so I can be at your happy hour in spirit.

Hey, did anyone plan a golf outing?

I hope the golf outing at QZ becomes an annual event.

On Tuesday 9 vehicles went on a off road trip to Bull Canyon and Gemini Bridges with Sam leading and the Woods as tail gunners.  We first went to a beautiful place at the end of Bull canyon where we had lunch while having a great view of the bridges from the canyon bottom.  Shortly after lunch we caught Jerry kneeling down looking like he was praying similar to what Peter & Collette photographed a few years ago.  Check out the following photos.
