View Full Version : Moab's pretty fun.

Hey Kids!

The dogs and I made it safely to Moab today. I've already run into a few other VXers, but the real fun won't begin until tomorrow.

In the meantime, here are a few shots taken at Arches National Monument today:

The dogs are really getting used to the ride...

I thought if I tilted the camera, the Balancing Rock might fall over. Nope.

And here's how I've been finding my way around:

And here's what a typical sunset looks like:

I could move here...

Apparently, this is one reason the park is called "Arches":http://www.vehicross.info/gallery/data/500/thumbs/delicatearch.jpg (http://www.vehicross.info/gallery/data/500/delicatearch.jpg)

Yeah. Nice. And while you guys were at your desk jobs today, me and the dogs were here!

We're on our way! Be there soon!

All those crazy camera angles makes me think you are dizzy with excitement! The CO convoy should be here in Glenwood in 2 hours... :dance:

05/14/2007, 07:50 AM
Well, you guys better hurry up and get here before we use up all the fun! :cool:

05/14/2007, 10:46 AM
Nice shots! Please keep hi-res photos for the next year calendar! :)

05/14/2007, 02:53 PM
I'm definitely keeping all of the high-resolution files! I'm still amazed at how pretty everything is around here.

You know what nobody tells you about the desert, though?

It's HOT out here! REALLY hot. My Ebony VX really sizzles in this sun. I can't touch the exterior after it's been in the sun for a few minutes.

It's also dry. My eyes are always bloodshot, and my skin is flaking off.

Why doesn't anyone mention that deserts are hot and dry?!?

05/14/2007, 03:20 PM
Yeah. Nice. And while you guys were at your desk jobs today, me and the dogs were here!

Rub it in why don't ya! haha, Ya I'm stuck at work sitting behind my desk, just watching all the new photos being uploaded!

You guys have fun! Stay Safe!

Injuries Start when Safety Stops!! haha ok that was just a work thing (Safety and Quality Coordinator)

Hey Eric, it's 68 and sunny here in Olympia, just beautiful

05/14/2007, 04:33 PM
68 degrees? I LAUGH at your puny 68 degrees!

Look at these shots:

That's Scott and Bart scaling some EXTREME hills in their EXTREME 4x4's. You can't see my EXTREME 4x4 because, um, I'm sitting in it taking the photos.

However, you can see the Three Amigos...I mean, Vehicrosses...right here:

I'm out of gallery space. Damn.

05/14/2007, 04:57 PM
Eric, you know how nice 68 and sunny is here and thats what you get for being footloose with your gallery.;)

CO Convoy just pulled into town!

Sorry guys, but I deleted all the PM's that had phone numbers in them once I saved them to my PowerBook. The catch?

I LEFT MY POWERBOOK IN COLORADO! Fizzzuck! So I'm using my work laptop right now.

Point of me tellin you this?... I promised to call you all once we rolled into town. Well, we're here.

We're meeting at Zack's for beers in 15 minutes! 7:30pm.

See you there!

Here is a shot taken Monday morning in Glenwood Springs:

These 2 were taken at Moab's Mc D's Tuesday morning:


Ldub - your bad side has been immortalized. :p 14 VX's in a row - Yal was running around Moab in her VX without us though. So there were at least 15 VX's in Moab this morning!! I had to drive home today so these are all the pics I will have to post. The pics should only get better from here...

05/15/2007, 01:14 PM
What a great looking group!

You should have seen the way people were staring at this huge collection of VXs. It was as if they'd never seen 14 VXs in one place before.

Wait a minute...until today I'D never seen 14 VXs in one place before !!! :eek:

Thats alot of VX's (had to rub my eyes!)

That would make a pretty sweet, fresh 'n new Header Pic for this site!

Hey Eric, just imagine if we had half that many outside of Julian's that saturday. Can you just imagine the accidents with all those silly Seattle drivers,... wow

05/15/2007, 09:12 PM
John, we have people here in Moab from all over...even foreign countries like Canada and Texas! I can't believe the turnout...Chicago, and Colorado, and Reno and Vegas and Fargo and jeez, everywhere. Seattle, even. (Baxman showed up!)

But we could only get TWO PEOPLE to show up for our Seattle meet? That's sad. Next time we'd beter at least double that. (That would be four, for those counting.)

Anyway, I really enjoyed meeting everyone at the Moab gathering. I could definitely see doing this again next year...maybe without the dogs, though, huh?
