    FYI, there are still 7 rooms blocked out for the Rally, at the Red Cliffs Lodge. These will be released to the public on the 15th of April, so if you are wanting a room at the Red Cliffs, grab it while you can!

    My update.

    I'm back...

    On Jan. 6th.2018 I started this thread and in doing so it gave me motivation to get my truck ready for Moab.

    It worked. Yeppy Skippy.

    I've had my nose to the grindstone checking off items on my "to do list".

    It has been challenging. But when you have a deadline for a Moab Willys Rally it is a real motivator.

    Today is a very big milestone day for my truck and myself.

    Today I flat towed my truck across town to have the dual exhaust system installed.

    It was very hard to leave my truck in the exhaust shop after having spent 3 years working away on my vision.

    Just like John Pivnic had said about starting Floyd at the exhaust shop that it would be so very LOUD.
    I experienced the same when pulling my truck into the shop and up onto the lift rack. Sure gets you excited.
    The shop guys said they are use to it being LOUD but they will be fixing that.

    It will not be done today I was told, as they only pulled into the shop about 1pm.
    My truck will be wondering why it is locked up in a strange garage tonight. Hm...HA.

    I bought two Thrush mufflers myself and gave them to the shop to install.

    Like it has been said, I will still have some details to attend to in the cab after the Rally, but it will be ready enough.

    Guess I should tell you what I'm driving.

    My 57 pickup, Flame Red, custom steel flatbed full width to almost cover the custom rear fenders w/wooden rails.
    Spare tire mounted center of flatbed below back window.

    The other two fellows will be in wagons.

    We three will be leaving Breckenridge, Co Thursday Morning May 17th.
    We will be rolling into Moab early Thursday afternoon.

    See you in Moab along the river.
    That's all for now.
    Cheers, Thomas

    Good News Thomas! I am Confident that Floyd will be ready for the Moab Trip. We will See You in Moab on Friday. Are you staying at the Red Cliffs Lodge? When are you Going back to Denver? Are you staying in Moab for the "Unofficial" Sunday Trail Ride? I will be headed back to Conifer on Monday. If you are staying over on Sunday, we can Ride back together. Pivnic

    Hello again John, I will be staying in town at the Apache. The other 2 fellows with Willys wagons are also staying in town north city center.

    We 3 are joining the Sunday Trail ride last I heard. I for sure.

    To answer your question about checking out Monday. YES, we 3 will be loading up and head out sometime Monday morning.

    The other 2 fellows have said they will be returning east on I-70 Monday morning.
    I will scrap Monday trail ride and we can form a Willys mini caravan.

    One fellow is going back to Laramie, Wy.
    One to Golden, Co.
    I will go to Breckenridge and stay overnight.

    See you in Moab.

    I am looking forward to Sunday's run. Planning on going to Canyonlands afterwords on Monday to do Elephant Hill and camp at Horehoof then out through Beef Basin. The other two who were to join me can't make it. Anyone interested? Can fit under my permit. About 75 miles South of Moab. I like the area. Elephant Hill is on the rough side as they say is Bobby's Hole (never tried it). Don't think anything is worse than last year's Hell's Revenge. let me know.
