Continued my Jeep training today in Elephant Butte. Bill, myself, and the Rally hosts pre-ran a trail Bill will be leading during the Rally. Looks like I will be able to run a number of the trails over the next two weeks. Even got another good compliment of doing very well for someone so new. Must be careful I don't get a big head. Should be a fun month here.

Say hi to Nancy for us.  We've stayed at Elephant Butte before and really enjoy the area.  You are a natural and will learn Jeeping in no time at all. Hi to Darlene!

Great to hear Gary.  Glad you are enjoying your Jeep.  You kind of looked like you were having fun in Moab.

Well, it is a little late but I finally had some time to download the camera and thought I would post up some of our pictures from the rally.

Chrystal and I sure had a great time.  It was awesome to see all of our old friends, twice in one year I might add, and to meet several new friends whom I hope to see again.  I hope we didn't run or scare anyone off. :o

We appreciate all of the compliments but we really didn't do anything special or major.  It was a collective participation that made the rally so great.  That is what happens when you get some many wonderful people together in one place.  We look forward to seeing everyone in Texas if not before.  It just sucks that the Palo Duro rally is 6+ months away.

I guess Mary Ann and I will be the last of the Moab Rallyers to check in from home.

We finally made it in yesterday.  Excuses? Well, it was 2048 miles.  Real reason?  We dragged (drug?) our feet, unwilling to bring this year's trip to an end.

Thanks so much to Mike and Chrystal for the effort they both put in to making this fall rally happen.  Special thanks to Mike for letting me be his bobblehead in the passenger seat on two great off-road rides -- and to Chrystal who so generously provided the salted-in-the-shell peanuts and the Kroger low fat Nilla Wafer cookie things. YUM!

Thanks to Betty for her usual dose of enthusiasm that made the afternoon gatherings so much fun for those of us who were beginning to "drag" -- and no, I am not talking about "Henry the Witch".  :)

Thanks as well to all the friends, both old and new, who made this rally so special!

Happy Trails 'til next time.  Be well!

Glad to see you and MaryAnn made it home safe and sound Don.  Your welcome to be the bobblehead any time.

Chrystal and I hope everyone has a great Holiday season and we look forward to seeing everyone in the New Year.

Oh, by the way, I winterized the coach last week and put it away Saturday for its' winter slumber.  That was a crappy day.  I hate it every year but look forward to the next RVing season as Chrystal and I start to think about our next years travels.  Thinking and talking about the upcoming trips is what makes winter bearable for me.

We wanted to again thank Chrystal and Mike for a great time at Moab.  It was our second time to enjoy the fellowship and laughs with the group and we look forward to future outings with all who were in attendance at Moab.

Cheers,
Andrea and Gary

Mike and Chrystal,

Many thanks for taking on running a fall Moab rally. Without your encouragement I don't think we would have thought of Moab in late October. It was great.
Moab is so much nicer without the big crowds in town and the ATV/Razors on the trails.
And because of your scheduling this rally we also found out how nice Colorado ( Fruita and Ridgway) is in late October.
