Moab? More like Snoab!

We were there Thursday, planned to wheel Friday, but woke up to 4 inches of snow! We ended up heading South and wheeling through Canyonlands.

Glad you had fun! Build your 40!...

In addition to disconnecting the rear driveline and unlocking the front hubs, you need to make sure the steering is free to track- leave the key in the Acc. position and disconnect the battery.

Meeting time tonight?

So, is the meeting time tonight at 7:30 like it says on the "how to join" page, or is it 8:30 as stated in Hulk's calendar entry?

I plan to attend and don't want to be late!
Thanks- Blake
