    You wheelin buds did miss you guys on the last day when we went to Top of the World. The backseat of a VX is not the best place to be when its 90 degrees and bouncing around. But they may be the only kids to ever wheel in the front seat of a VX at Moab. They are gonna have some stories, thats for sure.

    Yes I was talking about you...
    That's Ok Bro, I'm used to being the "strangest guy in the room"...

    After this many decades, it comes naturally.

I dont wish for trail trophies or putting huge amounts on mileage on the girl.

    I's just a city gurl and so is my VX.
    So...whattya sayin'?...
    I'm gonna have to drive all the way to LA to meet you & hubby?

    Cool

    1) Paid for last years trip (2008) with O.T.----no O.T. this year w/slumping economy.
    2) Bought Mustang GT....refer to #1
    3) got 90+K miles now on VX....my faith in her making it there; banging on rocks (surviving trails) and making it back intact is alot lower than @ 70k.
    See #1
    4) Loved the VX'ers...('cept one! ); Loved the scenery; too much a loner to enjoy traveling with others (i.e. convoys); absolutely hated driving in (city of) Denver .......see #1!

    *Loved the dunes though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dunes Rock!!!!!!!!

    eh, not a problem, you can fly out and ride shotgun with someone, they might eve let you drive their ride, that would be crazy for you, being a RHD and all...
