I'm in as usual!

Hopefully I'll be finished with the improvements.

Spring over and power steering going on, and mild engine rebuild!

OK! Let's get started on this event build... Who wants to do what?  I'm interested in checking out the newly finish Rim Butte trail(s) one of the days but other than that... wide open.

Thoughts on where to go?

Should we do a campground activity this year?

I'm in for sure! 
Will be in the sidekick, so I'm game to check out the Rim Butte trail, but I'll most likely watch/recover as I need the 'kick in one piece for the 5 hour drive home. 
My rig is a fusion of Jazz and Funk; I call it JUNK
