And then there are the masterful planners. Oh the humanity!
Barb - we are now among those who need not and would actually prefer not to plan much. GC 1.2 Redux - Annies dad's birthday May 1st and after that we really don't need to be anywhere but Yuma around Dec 1st. But if we don't do it - the odds of making Utah or Idaho a Fall into Curiosity become slim.

Dave and I talked today, and Jeff and I talked yesterday. I have pretty much concluded that Utah is the place to be. After looking at the map of Utah Annie and feel like there is a lot to see there and we would want to give it a month or more. We would then approach AZ via Colorado and New Mexico.

So let's get this going. Utah in August - please use the Contact Us form on the website to forward place and dates in Utah for August 1 to as late as the first week of September. We can make it happen with minimal planning if we work together.

I loaded this book up on my Kindle App today and will be leisurely flipping the through it the next few days. I will also be looking for The best REAL Jeep to rent for a few days! Will ask if they rent iPhones too so I can see how the other side lives. :sly::what:

Yippee - we have the makings of plan.

Hey Sue - Sparky a friend come and stay with us a couple weeks before Christmas and he's decided to stay on. Also the dolphin Annie got at the gift shop we went to on Padre Island has been hanging around too. And then there's the turtles that have come to live with us...

Or not. I think we will be in the DFW area but not sure. Possibly in Melissa as it is near Freightliner. Not sure yet if we will have oil changed and service here or there.
If a mini-c happens it will be a discussion, I'm sure. Last year we went out of our way getting to CL but Earlene had friends in the Dallas area that she wanted to see so the interim stop and picking up the contingent was then on-the-way. It is definitely a one stop before getting to CL, probably around Longview, Marshal or Shreveport area for a nights stop.

Go Patriots!! Sack those Birds Sack those Birds
Sea hawks is a bird right, not a fish?
Tim, I have been preaching that ever since it happened. The Zebra's handle the ball on every play. No way not to notice if there is something wrong. Then, after they were told at the half time, in the 3rd quarter the Pats score 21 points. Are they telling us that the balls were not checked at that time? Come on crybaby's, sheesh!

But then again - nothing says Texans need to roll in together. And we had Don and Sandee and Jeff and Marcia in the contingent (both SD residents) in the pack. We may be the SD representatives in the Tx contingent this year.
Mini-c notwithstanding, my point was that we haven't firmed up our plan for traveling to CL, and I don't want our lack of planning to hold up anyone else. We'll just have to slink into the campground without a parade.

I need Aug to early Sept but what kind of $ we talking!

Which book? You didnt say........

Utah in August could be hot, or not.... I really thought we were going for fall, like in AFTER kids are back in school.....
I would much rather a date in September, kinda like Barb mentioned.....
i was not impressed with Salt Lake City area at all.......

But I am just one...
And while I was one of the mutants pushing for plans and a date.

That is no longer on our planning agenda.....
We are in a waiting pattern on a replacement of the ICD that larry wears inside his chest.
We have been informed the battery is almost out, BUT they (medicare) will not pay for the replacement until the alarm on it beeps... So for now, there is NO plan in our travel future much further than CL......

But being an optimist, i am hoping for a September date somewhere in southeastern Utah or southwestern Colorado....

+1 on the "kids in school" thing. Utah in early September sounds like a winner to me.
