Guess I'm out for this one! :furious: Thought I would make it but my wife is going to need a refill on one of her most expensive prescriptions around the 12th. With no insurance yet it'll run around $700!!!! :banghead: That kinda blows anything I might have been able to spend for the trip! :evil:

Everybody have fun and be safe !!!!

I understand, Larry. Sucks how much meds cost - but good health overrides everything else!

Maybe next time :)

:BANANA:

I so wish it were this week! Oh well, 10 more days! It will be interesting to see how much snow is still on the ground when we get there. It seems that area got hit with quite a bit this past weekend.

But if they're also having similar temps that we are, most of it should be gone. :(

Diff goes in tomorrow. :D

I'm north of Reed City we had snow on the ground before the storm that brought 12 inches. South of RC had no snow on the ground and didn't get as much snow.
50''s yesterday and 40's last night. Forecasting 60 today and rain. The 7 day forcast is all above freezing.
I'd bring the boat, kayak or canoe:)

Hmmm, I don't have any of those. I guess we'll just see how well the KJ can swim! :ROTFL:

It also seems that El Sol has been getting active again with solar storms. I'm hoping for a good Class M or X flare when we're there next week. It might afford us a glimpse of the Northern Lights!

We're out. Technical difficulties in reassembly of diff and front suspension. :evil: Seems that something internally in the diff was not assembled correctly by our local driveline shop, and the differential won't hold the intermediate shaft. Not enough time to get the issue resolved and everything assembled again... not with work and all that too. :(

That really sucks Jayme. I hope you can get the issues fixed soon.

...and then there was one. Looks like just about everyone has dropped off this trip. :ALONE:

I'm super bummed about not being able to go. Was really looking forward to this trip too. :(

I know, I am equally super-bummed. :cry:

We will do other trips to that area. I'm actually thinking of doing one mid-December to coincide with the Geminid meteor shower - take care of two of my passions, Jeeping and star gazing! We will probably do a trip in the fall, too. I'm just not sure you'll be back yet.

I'm not entirely sure yet either. And usually ECS is in October, so I'm kind of hoping we can do that when I get back. I'd be down for a December trip though! :D

We're still going and Tom may join us, but he won't know until Friday.

I thought you weren't going based on your FB post from yesterday. :dizzy:

The only good video I got besides the other two which featured the Jeep going through fits.

Includes a trailblock!
