I’ve put in for some days off to go.

I may have to stay home and use my days off to install new windows in my house. We will see when they get delivered, supposed to be around that time….

I'm still planning on it. But I really need gas prices to come down a lot. This is gonna be an expensive trip.
Just ride your bike! :icon_idea:

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

That Idea has run through my head - very quickly. It's gone. Not ready for a ride that long yet.

If things are still too expensive, I will cut back to just one truck, probably the Fun50, and ride shotgun with someone on the trails. Or, I could do it in the Ranger and just be careful on the trails so I can drive it home.

You could fly in and we'll pick you up at the Attica, IA, International Airport.

I think my wife would murder me if I was flying somewhere that wasn't somewhere tropical and a vacation. 🙃 My littles aren't quite ready for a trip like that yet and it just wouldn't be right with out my ranger or bronco II there. Maybe next year!

Just act surprised...

"honey, I am as surprised as you are but these nice locals in old pieced together trucks seem friendly and want to entertain us until we can catch a flight out of here"

Done deal, you always have campfire pizza as a fallback...

On a serious note after bouncing out to Ohio in '19 in my first Gen with my wife 7mo pregnant our little guy hasn't missed a roundup yet, he had a lot of fun last year. There is a lot to do in the area too.

Haha I've done to much ask for forgiveness this year already to much. I thought I was going to die when I asked her to pick up my brand new 35s from the tire shop and I just paid off the the tire bill 2 weeks earlier. lol I was fighting death wobble and it was the tire or rims. And I ordered all new! haha

I really want to build an overland trailer and it would be fun to camp to do a overland trip down there. I'm planning on doing it. Its the trailer or get the bronco II going for my next winter project.

My littles are a year a few months old, (twin boys) I can't fit the car seats in the back of the ranger. I did try haha so I'll have to wait some until they can get into the booster seats.

I've been working on my girlfriend to come with me. She keeps saying she will, but I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't some last-minute issue that gets in the way.

I've heard that song before.

It ended with her wanting a Bronco...
