Morning Everyone;
Well the first day of unsupervised mayhem passed without getting into any trouble. Was cloudy and cool. Moved the coach into the shed as rain was predicted and started working on fixing a winch to pull the trike into the trailer. Need to make a parts run for a few items I could not find rummaging around the garage.

Raining today. Am going to put off the parts run until it stops. Am saving the trip for a motorcycle run. Construction on our road so it will be mucky. Now I have the perfect opportunity to clean up the garage I was rummaging around in yesterday. Maybe I can find some "prizes" in this one!!

So second day unsupervised should pass uneventfully without too many distractions to get into mischief! There is a saying that "If you are not living life on the edge you are taking up too much space" so I have to find something to get closer to the 'edge". LOL

Hope everyone has a great day and is able to "get closer to the edge". Life is grand and I hope you are all enjoying it.

Update on garage cleaning: What a mind numbing boring job to undertake. I understand now why it is the last thing I do. Have found no treasures but have found a few things I forgot where I left.

Still raining.

Gordon,
I understand fully about the cleaning up the garage, One thing that I defiantly don't miss. it has to be done but always tend to put it off.

Frank - I am not sure if you did this deliberately or spell check helped you out but I really think the misquote is "right on".

Gordon,
Although I would like to take credit, spellcheck got me. The word was supposed to be definitely.
Spent the afternoon touring the main street of Frankenmuth, had a great time.
Later gang,
Frank

Good Morning All,


Awake and drinking coffee this am and sure do enjoy doing that in the morning.


Going to pick up the rig today from storage and get it ready for leaving on Friday to meet up with Frank and Rita at Frankenmuth. They have some very interesting stores there to go through Frank but you probably figured that out already.


There is an old church outside of town that is quite beautiful if you check into that if it interests you. It has been there from the start and has some amazing stained glass and wood work.


Well, need to get to work on things we need to do. You all have a great day and keep healthy, happy, and safe.


Lynne

Good Morning all!

66 degrees here in Moab, Utah. We are back at the coach.

We had a fantastic time on the White Rim Trail. Jessica the rental jeep did just fine, glad I rented one that has been lifted a little, with larger tires and skid plates etc.. There are parts of that trail that are extreme. But that is what made it fun.

We arrived at our campsite Monday evening around 6:30. I setup the table and my mini camp stove. Deb started cooking and I put up the tent. We could see a storm coming so I kept the bedding in the Jeep. We had to rush through dinner and jumped in the Jeep just as the storm hit. In front of it was a dust storm, must have been 60-70 mph winds. Jessica rocked, my dome tent was knocked almost flat, and so this went for at least 15 mins! Then the rain came, for a thunderstorm I would call it moderate rain. 30 mins more and it was gone. Shortly after we could see the milkyway through clear sky's.

We made the bed, and went off to sleep. Sometime during the night a second storm came. Not so much wind, lots of lightening and lots of rain. We rode it out in the tent. In the am all was good, no damage for us, just a red muddy mess and a wet tent. We stayed dry.

I was able to get a few pics of the schaffer switch backs where you start the trail. Little did we know they are by far the easy point. About 2/3's around the loop the hardscrabble switchbacks get shall we say very interesting. So tight in places you have to back up to make the corner, (always nice on the edge of a 1,600' drop) and very steep that even in the dry the 4wd was spinning the tires a little. The hardscrabbles are no more that 10' wide, always with a drop on one side as you climb up the mesa.

The entire drive took us just over 10 hours in the Jeep, that excludes stopping to eat, checking out the magnificent views etc. There are smooth parts where you hit 10 mph, and a lot where 1 mph is too rough.

If you all every get out this way, and enjoy off roading, do this it is a great time (without the storms)

Lloyd; Great pictures and thanks for sharing. Looks and sounds like you had a great adventure.

Appears that you may have been able to see your taillights on a couple of the switchbacks.
