Need a riding partner for the upcoming Moab event.

Post by mr. cob » Fri Mar 06, 2009 8:51 pm

Howdy All,

Is anyone in the Nor-Wet, interested in being my riding partner, sharing camping and fuel expenses to and from the up-coming Moab event?

I have a truck and enclosed trailer to safely haul your rig, I have a camper on the truck that will be used as our base-camp, I have already made the reservations in Moab.

I live about 50 miles northeast of Seattle, if you are in the area and want to talk about this send me a PM with your phone number and lets talk. A two wheel drive rig is absolutely necessary to partake in this event. Thanks.

Mr Cobb, your requirement 2WD is a fair warning but for others there is also plenty of on and off road riding available for 1WD.
Hope you find company and see you there.

What are the dates for this Moab event? If I have my motor putback together and tested I might try to come out for a couple of days.

Cheers,

Howdy John,

You pay for the diesel fuel to and from and I just might take you up on that offer. :D

Howdy Dana,

I have been in contact with Steve, he is on the fence at this point.

Hey - I'm not on the fence, don't be taking any swings at that fence :P

Mr. Cob is right that I was considering coming down with him, but I'm going to need my truck for my second week when my son comes down, so it's not going to work-out for that. I've got reservations for a cabin - ooh-la-la, at archview resort. So I'll see y'all there, but right now it looks like both Mr. Cob and I are coming down in separate vehicles.
