We left MN today headed to Moab. Spent the last few days helping a friend install a res fridge in his 2003 Dynasty. Was a bit more work than the one I put in my coach, but we got it done. We'll likely get to Moab by thurs or so, and just hang out waiting for others to arrive.

Margaret and I will be coming if my eye clears up before Thursday. Just had cataract surgery Thursday and everything is cloudy. Doctor said it was normal for some people to take a while for their eye to clear up.
  We haven't made Reversation yet because of the uncertain vision problems. Hope they still can work us into the park.

Henry, that is AWESOME!!!  Hope the eye clears up and you and Margaret can make it.  We would love to see you guys again.

I don't think this time of year would be a problem accomodating you without reservations.  The last seveal years when we have been there this time of year the campground has a lot of empty spots.  Although it seems each year there are a few more than the previous year.

Glad the pasta turned out good.  Tell Chrystal that Dee is bringing her red boots!  On another note, as a Utah resident, can you comment on what you think the weather will be like?  No crystal ball, just a what's usual?

Steve

Let's see Steve, I am going to go on a limb and say mid-high 30's for lows and upper 60's for daytime highs.  That is what I am ordering.

Actually that is what it has been in the past but unfortunately this time of year it can change for the not so pleasant rathder quickly.  Temps will definitely be cooler than May weather when you were last there.

Chrystal said to tell Dee she is anxious to see her red boots that she has heard about.

Sounds good, don't have too much fun until the rest of us get there.

Okay, Chyrstal and I have been talking and thought we would throw out there and see if we could get any suggestions as far as an evening activity for Halloween night. 

We thought it would be good to throw this our there before arrival just in case people need or want to bring certain items.

So start throwing out suggestions.  Brainstorm people.  ;D

For anyone who is going to be in Moab on Saturday the 25th, they have punkin' chunkin' out at the old airport.  We have been a couple of times and it is something to see first hand rather than watching on TV.

Here is a link for information.

Oh boy oh  boy, I have many ideas and I was hoping  you might be open to some of my activities. One roll of  Toilet paper would  be on my list of needed supplies.  How can we have an RVForum rally without such talk?

We are in St George Utah tonight  with   FMCA 4 wheelers.  I will  think more about what supplies  may be quick and easy.

We plan to arrive on Saturday and since we will only be 75 miles away we should arrive early.  I will call the park to confirm that an early arrival is okay.  The festival sounds like a fun time, so we plan to go.  We are currently in Montrose, CO and the weather has been fabulous, so hopefully Mike's prediction will be right.

Mike,
  We were really looking forward to the Punkin' Chunkin' but we won't get there until Sunday, the 26th  :'(  That means extra pressure on you to come up with good Halloween plans  ;)   Costumes??? Thanks for the weather info.  We don't mind the cold too much.  It will be somewhat refreshing for us from So Cal where it's always warm & sunny.

We will arrive on Friday.  We will be there 7 days.  Sadly we will have to leave on Halloween morning,
unless a court case in OKC gets settled.  I did some PI work for a law firm there and I will have to testify
in the court case so we have to leave early to get settled in Casa Grande for me to fly to OK City on 11/2.

We will however be there for Punkin Chunkin which we really look forward to as well as seeing old friends
and making new ones.

Susan and I have to forgo the Moab Fall Rally; we have too many irons in the fire at this time to break away. We hope for a safe, and fun time for all.

John,

I'm sorry you had to cancel. Sheila and I were looking forward to seeing you and Susan at Moab.
Hope to see you both soon - somewhere in our travels.

Yes, I was really stoked about coming, I've been planning for months, my coach was packed except for food. Being Semi-Retired has its drawbacks, and Susan still works 40 hours/week at the family business. Business opportunities are better than they've been since 2005 and in these days one has to take advantage when the opportunity arises.

I am sure we'll meet up again down the road, we're signed up for Catalina New Year's Rally, and the Texas Rally in May. And I've been giving serious consideration to the FMCA Four-Wheelers Rally in Moab in May too (I just joined the FMCA 4-wheelers this past weekend).

I have been wanting to join FMCA 4-wheelers for a while now but where Chrystal and I still work full-time it is hard to get away to attend some of their rallies.  Maybe some day.

John,

I sure know about work interfering with play! We had many a summer trip re-scheduled or cancelled to fit work. When we first started Catalina I was still working - almost full time - and for the first few years during the Rally I had to drive back to Phoenix the handle year-end Inventory and work prevented me from going on to the FMCA rally in Indio because January was very busy with YE closing. Even now, as just a consultant, our January travels sometime get modified to suit work.

Despite the fact that it sometimes interferes with my "playtime", I really love my work - particularly now that I am not responsible managing people and dealing with customers!

See you at Catalina SP.

Ken,

I hear you. My role in the family business (JMB Construction, Inc.) is as the license holder and qualified employee. I don't have to do client relations, or subcontractor relations, or supplier relations anymore. I actually love building, it is fun, a challenge, and rewarding on a number of levels. All I do today is oversee the projects, make sure we are compliant, and give advice. I work from home; Susan on the other hand has to go to the office five days a week.

The good news is that the plan for the business is for Susan to step back at the first of the year. It is most challenging because Susan is the bookkeeper/accountant. No one better to trust the money with than my wife. But we're hoping for a full 90-days of travel in 2015...on my way to becoming a Part-Timer... :)

I am really looking forward to Catalina.

I know I signed up as a "maybe", but I won't be coming either.  Work issues and my Mom just sold her house and she's moving in with my sister in La Quinta at the end of the month.

I hope to see everyone in Quartzsite!

I thought about you as Susan and I "discussed" the Moab Rally. You could always swing by and hook up to the Jeep, it is set up  for Roadmaster.

That's one hell of an offer John!  If I wasn't already pulling my own toad, I might have taken you up on that (not really, but fun to think about!)  8)  I will just have to hitch a ride with another framily member to get my Jeep fix.  I'm sure I can come up with a seat.  I'm sure it wasn't easy to scrub the trip, but owning my own business, I totally get it.

Best,

Betty, How did we miss you? We got to Temple View RV in St. George on the 18th and left this morning for Grand Junction, where we are now. Tomorrow, we'll stop at our home in Silverthorne before heading to our Front Range digs. We were in space 43.
