    My excuses for missing moab 2009... what are yours?

    3) Picking up dog in Oregon (Boulder) see attached

    2) I asked Brittany to Marry me at the Base of Mt. Shasta, in northern California

    1) Brittany and I have a baby on the way, she's 5 1/2 months pregnant and can't be in an offroad vehicle... maybe not in the VX at all



    So I kind of knew I wasn't going to be able to make it, but I was hoping I could work out to have my nephew to go with me instead, and then Brit and I could plan a different weekend to get the dog. Turned out my Nephew was running the Ogden Marathon the Weekend of Moab (his first ever 4:32 was his time) After knowing he couldn't go, and that I had no one else to bring, I scheduled "my" weekend for the same weekend as Moab... that way It would soften the blow of not being there. And no offense to you all It was worth it

    The Image shows "Boulder" our new American Indian Dog, with "Breuer" our Dutch Shepherd we picked up 3 months ago, amazing amazing amazing dog. He's 13 months old, and damn near genius status

    Grats Dude - looks like you're set up for a Mega-Year.

    My 'scuse for not going to Moab is that it just too far. One day I'll make it tho.

    A few really....

    My life is mostly all work and no play. Gotta do what I gotta do if I wanna retire by 45.

    I live light years away from MOAB. The FTL drives on my VX aren't working so well and throwing a CEL 011101100011X. I haven't used them in a while as to prevent effects seen in and around an event horizon. Neat looking, but very disorienting.

    I don't relish the idea of parking my VX to ride shotgun with another VXer. I have dent-scrape-breakage-dirt-dust-flat-aphobia with her. She was simply never set up for any offroad use and it would be stupid to pretend she was.

    Procrastination. I am King.

    I will not make anyone feel guilty for not going to Moab, life happens. I just want to say CONGRATULATIONS on the news! When time is right, what you want to do, will happen.

    She said yes before even thinking about it... She'll probably claim temporary insanity and bail on me.

    Thanks for the Congrats all! We're very very excited!! Crazy crazy crazy year for me!

    We need to get Menace and my Buds together for play time!

    Sounds like a replay of the last six months of my life... Got engaged on New Year's Eve, had our daughter Mahalia in February... you are in for one heck of a ride bud! But it'll all be worth it when you get to hold the baby for the first time.

    Congrats!!!

    ...and my excuse is the same as Tom's. Utah is way the @#%! too far for those of us on the east coast (Marlin excluded ). The pictures are incredible and I hope to come some day, but until then, hoping for another mega event within a 1500 mile radius.

    My reasons for missing Moab:
    It was awesome, the scenery was incredible, the people were cool (mostly, some were just strange....... well, not some, just one), wheeling the VX is as good as it gets. The weather was perfect...there are a lot more reasons for missing Moab I am sure.

    I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
