Thanks

I just like to thank all those that took part in the organisation and running of the Fall Fling. We really had a great time and I would also like to thank everyone for making us feel welcome. We hope to be back for Fall Fling 2008 if we can.

I have to say Vince that you and Rachel are two of the nicest people I have ever met. You both turned a pretty crappy day into one of the best I have ever had in Canyonlands when my jeep broke down.

Out of everything Nanette and I have talked about, the trip with you two over Elephant hill has been talked about the most. It is something both of us will remember for ever.

Hope the rest of your journey is good and safe.

Re: Thanks

It was raining almos all the time.... I broke something everyday but I had a best time in Moab so far( it was my third trip over there).

Big thanks to everybody who helped me and for those who watched me and gave me moral support

And guess what....I didnt break anything on the way home!!! Remi's "polish locker" is holding up so far

I'm ready for next year (to be on the trail and not under my car)!!!!!!!!!!! And I'll bring some more Guinnes and polish vodka!

Thanks!!!!!

Yup, it was a blast wheeling with you and Rachel, that wheel stand was memorable

I second that, and lets not forget the Porter that John brought with him

Close examination shows that I will need 4 new tires and rims (well the rims were trashed before Moab and I'm tired of straightening them). And the tires, well, I think it's time to see if I can upgrade in the process.

He better be ready for next one He's coming down to SoCal in February to wheel in Calico. Oh yeah, just in case I'll make sure to have spare tranny mount and a trac lock

Hey, it was blast wheeling with you.

Heck, it was a blast wheeling with everyone that was there! And the late nights around the modified cooler were definately a blast.

Re: Thanks

Vince,

It was great to have you there. We may not have seen much of you (even being across the hall from you at the hotel), but it's great to see someone so dedicated to the sport that they'd come from oversees, build a couple jeeps, and drive all over the country and love every minute of it. You guys are an inspiration! Too bad you couldn't join us on Moab Rim friday, but maybe next time.

Re: Thanks

We are back home in England now and it's really hard getting back into a work frame of mind. I keep stopping what I am doing to think about all the things we did, the trails we drove and the people we met. Every now and then someone asks me why I am grinning - I try to explain, but I guess it's a Moab thing they can't understand.

Thanks to all at for the plaque for 'The farthest travelled'. Sorry we couldn't be at the dinner on Friday to receive it. I will make sure next time I have a plan for properly dealing with last day repairs. I didn't break anything I couldn't fix this trip but Rachel has been wheeling with me enough to know that we were lucky. It's also the first time I've had to catch a plane home from a wheeling trip and I guess I hadn't put enough thought into dealing with breakages prior to air travel beforehand.

Ryan & Nanette: We both really enjoyed your company in Canyonlands. We had a great day out. Can't wait to see your photos - I only took a few, I guess I was too busy talking. We are going to try to get back to Utah in December, will PM you later.
