Some of you may know, many of you do not, but our landlady is BSC, and we are finally about to escape. We close on a house tomorrow, and take possession monday, the 23rd. I am furiously packing, fixing, patching, painting and cussing. We struck a deal with her to give her $1500, our deposit forfeited and we never see her or this rathole again.
The fly in the ointment is that gives us a week to GTFO. If anyone is feeling generous with their time next week, I could use a hand all day every day of the week. We are a small house, but you know how garages are, etc.
We are only moving about a mile and a half, into a bigger place, and are mostly packed up.
I will do my best to buy wobbly pops, and have cool other beverages too.
Moving from Woods Cross to Bountiful.

Going to be a very mushy ride. At least a grandma would know what to expect.

A trailer... hmm... I will PM you.
My wife's parents will be here for the week, and I will get a bunch of help from them, my own mother is in town too, so that helps. We aren't truly hurting for help yet, but if it comes down to it, I will definitely hit up the Home Depot.
I always think of the commercials they used to run where the guy says "You can do it, we can help". I am pretty sure the "we" in that sentence is the guys standing out front of Home Depot.
We haven't got a lot of furniture either, so that's a blessing. A fridge, a couch, a stove, a bed and a futon round out the big stuff. But, I do have some garage cabinets, tools, heavy things that make noise, etc.

Want to camp this weekend

I was hoping to do some truck camping this weekend with the dirtbike. I was wondering if you guys could give me a suggestion on a fun place to go? I have only been here for a few months and have only rode the bountiful trails and American fork.

I was planning on camping at AF but I have heard its a zoo on the weekends. I was at in and out the other day and a kid told me there was an awesome place to ride some where east of brigham city, does anyone know this spot and if I can camp there?

I would like to stay in the mtns heat wise. Would be sweet if there was a place with a lake so I could swim and fish. I don't need any amenities. Just nice place to drive my truck to, put up my tent, and rip around on the dirtbike.

Or up above Logan. Take Logan Canyon to the top. At the summit there is a dirt road that goes off to the right. Follow that for a few miles and find a place to camp off one of the side roads. Lots of good riding from mellow roads to single track. It will be about 20 degrees cooler up there.

Mirror Lake highway out of Kamas is close. Legal camping and several trails.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I haven't heard about the Logan trails. Strawberry I have heard of though. Some one told me past kamas they were shutting down a lot of trails. I hit rt35 a lot on my street bike!

I think the one that kid was telling me about was mantua trails. I have heard great things about strawberry though. Maybe that will be the spot. Isn't it near Heber? I really appreciate all the input guys.
