Next year I can just see our shiny red Taurus wagon on the edge of that rim. 

My Admiral, "Oh no you can't!"

Just give the Admiral time.  Sam lead the ride yesterday I was just the navagator.  The White Rim ride paricipants this year consited of Terry Brewer, Al & Vel Woods, Lorna Reiter, Peter Jason, and Sam and I with Sam driving.  The trip took longer than last year, but a good time was had by all.  Terry Brewer and I have now done the White Rim trail in both directions.  Weather was great as was the scenery.

Ron:

Let me explain.

The Admiral would LOVE to go on such a trip.  She has been 40 miles offshore in a 28 foot boat with 12 foot waves, and other great adventures.

But she is quick to point out that "her" Taurus is NOT an SUV and still looks like it came off the showroom floor.  She is concerned that any adventures on non paved roads would not be conducive to keeping "Her" Taurus shiny and scratch free.

That road looked pretty rugged.  Was it as rugged as it looked?  Too rugged for conventional cars?

Too rugged for conventional cars.  Peter drove the White Rim trail yesterday in his MDX which is 4WD also.  Thats ok you and the admiral will be welcome to ride with us in the Grand Cherokee.  Not all of the framily have vehicles for of roading and those that don't and want to go ride with someone else.  I can't remember of anyone wanting to go being left behind.

Great!!  We would trust riding with any framily member at the wheel.  Though I might cover my eyes on the mountain edges lol!

Keep sending the photos so we can re-live the rally from a distance.

OK, Ron, we have to have our own private Moab rally as soon as we are both fit to travel again. Then we can post our own pictures. Of course, we have to get Betty and Terry back also so Betty can organize all of our activities ;D ;D ;D

Yeah, but it isn't the same, specially missing all the framily there at one time. But I'll settle for Ron, Shirley and the girls and we could then look at the pictures  :D :D

Firery furnace looks like good exercise!  Can't wait to join these rallies.  Might take a few inches off the paunch!

Can we get some shots of the rigs?

Smoky, check out our photo gallery (http://www.rvforum.net/coppermine/index.php) and click on the Moab 2005 Rally album. I'll get more photos of rigs added.

SOMEBODY said the Firey Furnace walk was an easy one.  Wrong, it was  a climb and scramble up rocks and a slide down rocks on your back side.  Jerry  Fitzgerald was a terrific leader and we all got more exercise than bargained for, but we feel healthy and proud of ourselves for completion of it.  We did note that the Park rangers who led tours down into the canyon did  so in the opposite direction as our travel.  A lesson there?
Great fun with a great bunch of uniscouts!

No, still excellent. Saw the cardiologist yesterday, everything was fine; blood pressure, pulse, heart. The warfarin is slowly building up but as long as I have no incidents it really isn't necessary. Have a stress test scheduled for next week and we'll see what that has to say.

Tom:

Saw a couple pretty rigs in your gallery.  MORE RIGS!


Sam:

My Admiral Sharon freaked out when she saw your quilt in Tom's baptismal album.  Gorgeous!


Betty:

I still say Firey Furnace looks like good exercise.  That means VERY HARD WALK!   ;D

Hi:

The scenery photos are nice.  How long are the various hikes?

Request:  Could you start a section of people photos?  Lots of pictures of all of you at the campground and doing activities.  I'm from the city.  I like to see people, especially since I've heard so much from and about everyone.  Any way to identify people in the photos?

Thanks.

Same here.  We're having major withdrawal symptoms.  We're already looking forward to next year.

Right now we're in Slidell doing the annual round of docs.  Den's BP is up, and I have to have a stress test on Wednesday.  On the whole, we'd rather be with framily.

Sounds as if you're feeling much better???

Tom, I think this is a great ideer!  Why don't you ask everybody to send in their favorite picture of theirselves.  If they don't send in a picture you can pick one from the archives.

I have a CD (actually two) of numerous Framily members idetified by name. But I don't feel comfortable uploading them to our photo albums without having their permission.

Attached are photos from Arches National Park and the Moab area. The hike to Delicate Arch is similar to the one for Corona & Bowtie. I think they scenery and arch at Corona is better. :)

More photos from Arches N.P. Several of us did the hike through Park Avenue. Really neat!!!

BTW is Park Avenue accessed via the foot trail that starts at the turnaround at the far end of Arches NP?

I used to think the same Bruce - until we visited Moab for the first time last year. In addition to the awesome scenery, a multitude of off-road trails and numerous hikes, there are many other available activities. Of course, there's also the great group of folks who attend the rally. Try it some time, you might like it  ;D

Thanks, Tom.

Park Avenue is the first trail after entering the park. It's on the left. You can hike down the canyon and come out at Courthouse Towers which is what we did. We left two cars at Courthouse so we didn't have to climb back up. ;D

I was using a polarizing filter and the sky varies depending on the angle from the sun.
