    If I'm not off traveling someplace, I'd love to go. It's looking pretty good right now.

    That looks like an epic trip! I'm interested in your experience on the Dusy Ershim trail.

    Do you have any interesting spots in mind to stop at between Fordyce & Moab? I'm still finalizing my plans. I'll be heading east on Friday & Saturday from Dayton, NV to Moab, UT.

    We thought about Austin Hot Springs and Lehman caves, but the timing doesn't look like it will work out. I may pull in to Sand Mountain where I used to ride ATVs growing up.

    Nevada has some nice hot springs depending on route also the international car forest is fun to explore.

    It would be fun to match to trips next year... thinking Colorado.

    Hey sorry I'm gonna have to bail on Moab this year... just not a good time to take a week off. It sucks that it's such a long drive to get there. Have a great time!

    How is the trip so far? Did you have snow on the dusy ershim trail? One of my co-workers was hiking in that area a few weeks ago and was prevented from going on the route they wanted to because there was still too much snow!
