Re: What did I miss?

I blew out my good knee back in April and had surgery in May. Rehab all summer long and into the Fall,...and that is still ongoing really.

No real good reason for not hanging out here. THat I can't explain.

McBeast has seen both coasts during this time, as well as spending an entire CWS in Omaha and there was a visit to The Grand Canyon.

Greg, you owe the forum about two gazillion trip reports. Better get to work!

Re: What did I miss?

Yikes... Ed, I had not thought about that.... McBeast is up to about 26k miles in about 20 months now, and he is not used as a daily driver.

Re: What did I miss?

I went to Oregon in a cast. Not that exciting, but I thought I'd commiserate.

Re: What did I miss?

Jage,

We were in your neighborhood back in the fall. We went to Laramie for a football game and spent a night in RMNP on the way up.

Omaha and the CWS for two weeks in June ... alone, shortly after surgery.... and I worked out of McBeast while I was there and even through a laptop failure.

Disney and Florida in the summer.

Roswell, Meteor Crater, The Grand Canyon, The Fiesta Bowl, San Diego, PCH... all on the way to the BCS Championship Game...

...and one night boondocking outside El Paso, the same night that 26 were killed in Juarez !!

Next up is a trip to Amistad.

I hope you don't think that qualifies as a trip report Greg?

Re: What did I miss?

No Sir ! ... I will try and put together some trip reports and photos over the next couple of weeks.

(but I might leave out the trip to Stillwater....)

Sold our rig. Now we are in the beginning of designing a new rig, unless a used one with our specs come up.
