It's great to see folks who enjoy the heck out of world we live in. We do the same all year long! Though we've enjoyed a brief few days with Ted and Cheryl, we've yet to meet the Whazoos! Maybe someday? Enjoyed the unique photos, especially that bobcat on Ted's head! Although I think you said you guys would be heading back east in early summer, maybe someday we could all meet up out west some summer. We're out west, somehere, every other summer. Just great to see you're having so much fun!

John & Marianne,
And I can certainly say that we'd welcome and look forward to" the meeting". What a great way to have friends across the USofA!


Howdy CTraveler, you great guy you...hope all things are well with you and the family. When's your next trip? I want to see where you head next...


BTG, I have another secret road in to "the creek". It does involve fording a river, climbing a rutted hill, crossing an un-broken lava field and fighting off swarms of "no-se-ums" but I know we could do it as a team, and the swim in the creek is worth it.![emoticon][emoticon]

I'm in then..... [emoticon] Maybe next spring (or maybe this fall if another trip we have lined up falls through?) That grey wet/snowy spring weather with the green flowering desert looks like perfect weather to me (except for the icy swimming part!) From your pics last fall (November?) that seemed like the other good time of year...

I'll keep my fingers crossed then. I was thinking of getting a shortie, you know, a half wet suit like they sell at Costco for the swim in cooler temps rather than waiting for the temps to hit the hundreds. The water itself is not that cold, it's just that you get in, you get out, you get in...and you know it SEEMS colder every time you get back in. Here's some teaser pics...

Wow! Nice looking canyon!

A group of female friends of mine go rafting every year with a company and raft various rivers. They decided some year they needed to do the Grand - and to book it entirely as a private trip they needed 24 people....so this year they finally invited the guys to go along. It was completely booked up by last June 1st or so, without it ever having to be opened up to the general public. So a little over 1 year in advance.

We get picked up early Saturday AM in Vegas for the busride to the put-in, and then spend 8 days going the whole length. These are the giant boats that also have motors to speed up the flat stretches. This way we get lots of time for hiking, as well as getting to do more or less the whole thing. Then they jet-boat us the length of Lake Meade, and get bussed back to Vegas on Saturday afternoon.

We are actually planning on driving with the rig to Lancaster (Lance - Mecca) to have some things done on the camper, leaving it there and going back to Vegas. Then after the trip, my wife flies home on Sunday and I return to Lance, pick up the camper early morning on Monday - and then haul-but back to Denver for work on Monday morning.

I'll be trying to do a little research on where to camp near Lancaster on a Thursday night, and where to camp Sunday night the following week without the camper....glad the Kodiak cab is so big!

Since the camper is going, I'll post a trip report of it when I am back.

Great pictures! Thanks for posting. Just one question,how did the "weight police" let you bring a cast iron coffee pot in your camper? Looks like it was a great trip.

Mick9064,
Actually Whazoo hid the darn coffee pot in my pack to escape the weight police. Now I know why I was so tired after that hike.
