I'm over half way there. Stayed in Salina, KS last night and will probably be staying in Grand Junction tonight since the campground I'm staying at doesn't have a space tonight. Is there a rendezvous point Friday morning? If I recall AT&T doesn't work that well in Moab and I'd like to know where to go ahead of time if possible.

Just passed a yellow VX on UT hwy 6. Must be heading home. Hope you all have had fun! I'll make it down there eventually.

Edit: mystery solved. Was Angela.

I guess I'll ride into town in the morning and hope I spot some Isuzus.

I'll post up when I meet people and had the plan.

If I forget, and depending on what time you get into town, a lot of people are staying at The Apache motel.. So you might be able to catch them there

I guess the meeting is at Apache. There may be different groups going out so if you can get there by 8:45am you can meet up with the different groups and pick a trail.

Looks like a good time! But the dog has the right idea, sleep while the silly humans try to put it back together!

This was a fun outing. I wish I could've been there for longer. I'm sorry I was sort of quiet and anti-social, I'm shy, and well, still trying to figure out my truck. It did well, although a few things to work out still were found.

I made it up the Chute on Flat Iron Mesa....I had Jack put a strap on the front just in case I came over the top since I'm still learning how the coil overs handle. It was fun...so thanks to all who put this together.

I am curious about a decal for this event. I bought 2 t-shirts in town....one with the "official" logo and one with the skull, but they said they didn't have any decals, except for a few 2011's left. Since I wasn't there for 2011, and the date was the only thing that distinguished it as an Isuzu event I passed...so if anyone has decals I can purchase, shoot me a PM.

I made it home safe and sound. Who would have thought a 28 year old vehicle would make a 3,200+ mile round trip with off roading thrown in without any major trouble. I met some great people and thanks to everyone who let me join in with a pretty much stock vehicle. I was really impressed with the Trooper's capabilities.

Good to see you made it. That was a heck of a trip to make when you really had not really run the Trooper much. Pictures have been pretty scarce this year. Hope to see some up soon. hint hint..

I didn't get any pics myself...but my gf got a few of my truck.

These 3 are from Metal Masher....right before mirror gultch, and then 2 during mirror gultch.

Image

Image

Image

These are from The Chute. I had Jack strap onto the front since I'm still learning the trucks behavior, and I wasn't sure how it would act.
