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....

Diane toftSFM#64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!
I was just about to text you about Larry... Thanks for the update and we have you and Larry on the Ommms list.

Forgot to attach the pic of the book. It is largely souther Utah.

We aren't suggesting Salt Lake just that we will drop into the state from the north (moving that direction from Sioux Falls) and work our way south over a month or so. I checked Bryce weather in August and the average high temp was 81. And it seemed reasonable to me. And there is so much to see and do.

I talked to Possum today and Southern Utah is within his distance limits.

I knew you didn't want to go to Idaho so in looking at the suggestions I had - and after talking with others it seemed Utah was high on the list.

So as I await input from the Contact Us list and read up I will be able to Guage our time a bit better and Annie can scout our adventures.

I have not been to Zion or Bryce yet so the area would work for us.

In 1998 we had a 1998 Pontiac Gran Prix and went from Arizona into Utah and stopped in Moab because it was on the way it was incredible. We want to go back back.

Cheers !!!

We need to crank up the mini-C plans. Maybe we could meet up in Kemah or somewhere in a couple of weeks.

Well Jeff... we are at this point ready to give Utah a month or more. Then probably drop down to Colorado / New Mexico and over to Yuma by Dec 1st. It's as a rough a plan as we're able to make now. We can catch ya in Moab too. Looks to be 320 miles between Bryce and Moab. Is your Jeep getting excited???

Things to consider when scheduling GC 2.0

Before we choose a date and location for the second Grande Curiosity there are a few things I feel that are important to consider.

Date -- we will find better rates and fewer crowds if we book our invasion during the camp ground's off season. For GC 1.0 we booked the last week of CL's off season. During the week we pretty much had the place to ourselves. I think this greatly added to the magic of the FEGC@CL.

The date will also be an important consideration as to the weather. We won't have near as much fun if the weather is crappy.

Location -- I'm delighted with the choice of Utah. I have been fascinated with the freakishly odd assortment of landscapes there.

It will be next to impossible to find any campgrounds as well suited to our group of STMs as is Catherine's Landing. I rarely stay in a CG so I'll trust others to know more about this. Perhaps we might list the desired amenities and rank them according to some priority list.

OK, I've had my say on the matter. Next!

Moab weather. Monthly averages.
Maybe a basis for planning?
September sure looks good.

Well my nationality puts a different meaning to the term "The Boys." In our use the term is usually coincidental with a visit from the broken knees collection agency, if you get what a mean?

Chicago is also in the "Frozen Tundra" area and my cousin Guido loves traveling in the warmer climes.

Pay attention boy, badda bing badda bong.

Well Steve not that I want to Moab just yet I like the thought of Bryce canyon before heading back to Arches National Park, but ya the Jeep is excited. We would be in the process of making our trek back from points further east.

Cheers !!!
