With the Toronto storm coming this weekend, Cantley to Merrickville is 2 hours away.... I would understand it is not safe or convient to make on Sat. If you can make it great if not it is ok.... There will be no hard feelings.. at all

as for planning, don't forget we have a 48 hr drive to our Moab home. There will be 2 way radio's between the trucks and we can create many of our routes and plans along the way..

over planning is not always that good of a thing as we might find things along the way, that, individually we want to see. Also if there is something that we really must address I would think it is already on the table. If someone has something that needs to be addressed, send an email or post it up.

We have the house set up and the have addressed how we are all getting there. We all understand how we are going to eat... Everyone has a pile of tracks for Moab area. If not I'll email you what I have, Send me or everyone a note. Everyone will share... I'm sure..

I for one would like to get to "the top of the world" how aggressive that trail will be... we'll see when we get there!!! If someone here has done this trail, let me know how easy or not this is?


This is going to be EPIC!!!!! 70 days or so left....

... But it's on us !
The quantity so far is not impressive (5cm in 3 or 4 hours) but the visibility is very low (wind?) ... I had to meet the DHL truck few milometers from my place... he was not able to climb the road at some point... road not cleaned yet, temperature around freezing point.

Another step to the "Moab Ready" state... I have now a real skid plate !
(and a "real" front wheel received yesterday)

I travel on a UK passport, so I need the extra half hour at the border too

So, I spent $85 for nothing ?!

Actually, in some custom offices they are able to do only one person at a time, so, it's still better I did it

Good to see Mark and Steve again... Not a whole lot of face time to discuss our trip... to me it was more about putting a face to a name... The Dakar Rally presentation put on by Deadly was pretty good, great pictures, kept everyone smiling...
