Moab Prerun is just around the corner.

I plan on leaving Denver Thursday 3/17 and hitting the road between 9-10am putting me in Moab around 4-5pm.

In that it is St. Patty's day and I got a bit of Irish in me I thought a stop at the Moab Brewery for dinner and a couple of pops are in order.

Post up what time you are heading out. :thumb:

Looks like Randy, myself and Shlegs will be heading out at 10am on Thursday, this way we get to the Moab Brewery around 4:30 - 5pm.

We will meet at 10 am at the Lucent building at Lucent Blvd and C470. If anyone else wants to join this convoy please speak up.

All I ask is that you are already fueled and have already eaten a hearty breakfast, cause when I am road tripin I don't like to stop unless to refuel.........I believe Randy would agree!

No Ham in the Tundra, Seven too O 272-four 9 0 nine is my cell.

Sweet. Pre-make them? I'll bring stove and pans and can help.

Mornings will be cold. I'm thinking coffee and a snack and then throw something on the engine cooker and eat an hour later.

How long are you guys going to be there for? I'm planning on being there from the 19th through the 2nd with another group (two seperate trips actually, one with Rock Frogs and the other with Front Range 4x4) and we are staying at BFE too. There is a single night gap on the 24th where I'll be chilling alone, so it would be cool if there was another group with people I know there too.

I'm trying to decide between getting to BFE before dark or going to the Brewery. All those in favor of the brewery, say EYE. EYE. Ok looks like the Brewery. I'll listen on the 2m, maybe catch the caravan as you hit Dowd Junction. Do not get gas in Vail. It's silly expensive here.

Corbet
03-08-2011, 06:04 PM
Farnham are you bringing the kids? Bridger really likes pizza. I was thinking we should have a kids night at Zak's Pizza. Or maybe just everyone at Zak's one night. No need to exclude just because you don't bring kids.

I probably will skip the brewery Thursday night as I would have to drive past BFE on my approach. I should have a nice camp fire going by the time all you arrive. Do you want something nice to sit around or something visual from space:D

Dude you got a hallpass. You better not show up at Bfe during daylight hours or even the same day you leave Vail. I'm sad I'm missing the PreRun this year. I will make some turns for you at Jackson Hole though. Don't feel to bad for me :)

Are you heading out to Moab or can Schlegs swing by and pick those up from you, strap them to his roof and haul them out to Moab aka Sanford and Sons?

Assuming for firewood?

I have a bunch of scrap from the old swingset I cut up in the backyard that I use for just such a thing...You guys are welcome to get as much as you want :thumb:

It does have stain on it and an occassional bolt but so far I haven't noticed any ill ill ill ill affects from using it... :hill:

If we burn pallets we need to be sure to clean up the old nails when we leave.

The Coors distributor in Durango offers free pallets. They stack them outside. I can take as many as I want. But I was planning to bring a small supply of proper firewood instead. But not enough for the weekend. If everyone brought a bundle we would probably be good. Or have a truck load delivered again like last year?

The other issue with pallats is... folks left behind their unused pallats at CM and Olaf was not thrilled... Any unused bundles, are easy to bring home.
