      I'm looking forward to this one! Too bad I won't have the Xterra there, it's far more better looking than I am.

          My calendar is empty on those days as of now, so I guess I can drag myself out and be social.

            I understand there will be alcohol, if that helps. Kiki says it seems to help her deal with me.

              Other than Saturday from 1-5 Iā€™m free. Iā€™d be down for either Sunday lunch then hangout at my nearby house or dinner Saturday and then the same.

                    Was just going to ask what the plan was since I realized I'm on a business trip that Friday and getting back to Detroit later than the last flight to Dallas, so I'm now looking at Sat morning flights.

                      The locations guest room is rather simply, but the bed is comfortable, a wide selection of firearms for self-defense are available through the host, who also happens to be some sort of (be it misguided in some points) car-guy.. all in all, 10/10, would stay again

                        Coolbeans. I updated the first post with date and time.

                        ...and I'm already looking forward to the boozy milkshakes.

                            Psh!! Though, seriously, you need to visit next time you're in the States. We are pretty close to a bunch of the national parks here.

                              I wanted to before, you know that.. but plans often change.. . I've tried to make Ethan and Nick take the time for some Moab-Offroad-Action.. but they seem to have this pesky reallife thing going on with work and shit.. almost every single time I am on vacation.. weird, hu? SLC is also a really annoying distance. 1200 miles is not enough for 2 full days, but kinda much for one day. I've done 900 miles in a day and that took me something around 13-14 hours.. (to be fair, the first 750 miles were easy and merely 10 hours, then I hit Atlanta at rush hour and had to get to the other side of it..) Still have it on my list of plans to do! But I also kinda really need to get my ass over to the west coast and say Hi to Steve and Alex... so many things to do.. so little time to do them..

                                Flight I want to take just dropped massivly in price. Currently looking at a combo that arrives at DFW at 10:30am Saturday and departs at 11am on Sunday.

                                EDIT: Flight booked, rental car booked. Der Stig, thanks for the room offer, but I'll probably stay at a hotel . Gotta earn those status points.

                                      All's good - we're still kickin' around here, so you're welcome anytime! Though, we totally need to try a Moab meet next time if there's enough interest and availability.

                                        Just to be sure we're on the same page, I should go rent a Focus so CrzRsn and I can have matching cars for this little meetup, right?
