    Due to the extraordinary amount of activity on this sub-forum, please only use this "OFFICIAL THREAD" for all discussion of this year's trip to MOAB on April 10th-15th.

    **********************************************

    It's on !!!

    Thanks to PlaceLast for keeping hope alive, a few of us are going to Moab again this year for a few days of camping, riding, drinking, good eats, and lots of tall tales (Scar Tissue will be there!!!). :boss:

    As of now, it's me, PlaceLast, Scar, and a buddy of PlaceLast's. We are still working on Thumbs and 2Strok4fun. KelsoRat has decided he would rather spend time with his wife and children. :p

    We did this trip in 2009 around spring break and it was absolutely fantastic. PlaceLast was a great tour guide as usual (remember the hugely well-attended Gorman group ride he planned back in the day?), the campground had hot showers, and the weather was perfect.


    I am psyched for this one!

    Now - let's discuss.

    The only jumping I do these days is when my boss or my girlfriend say "Jump!"

    I hope you are doing well! All good here.

    Is this a stag run or a family ride?

    Eel-er: need to put a shock spring on the Husky for you. What is on your Husky? Stock (5.2) or ?

    You would make a great partisan journalist.

    Conveniently leaving out all of the dialogue that occurred in-between, and thereby completely changing the otherwise innocent context of our statements which, in hindsight, now appear rather ill-advised due to your thoroughly sinister cutting and pasting.

    I just have one thing to say to you: "Well done!!"

    We miss you, too. No chance of making it?

    Anyway, I see you did us all proud with your results in the 2011 enduro series. 4 transfers?! You're gonna get a red stripe soon! Very cool. That must be very satisfying.

    No chance, I am up to my eyeballs in deadlines. The non performance penalties would be a death blow.

    Thanx, but no x-fers this year, I prolly wont race until Fall. Missing some good events.

    Well, I have never ridden in Moab. I'm self employed so I don't have to ask for time off. You guys are going on my B-day. My wife is cool with it and I miss you hanging with you guys.

    With that said I'M IN!

    Should I bring a fishing pole?

    BTW - I went to the dark side. Got one with a plate and magic button. :yeehaw:
