OK...thanks for responding. I just told my wife of your response and she's jumping for joy and tickled pink :huge: that other ladies are attending. She wants you to know she's looking forward to meeting your wife and daughter. :eagle:

I'm not sure if my wife is planning to go or not Eaglebeek.  Any wives that go on this trip definitely deserve a special prize for putting up with all of us eagle-maniacs!

Yes, they do :eagle:

Any of you that are planning to attend the Rambler Ranch/Eagle Motel trip:

I talked with Terry a couple days ago and we're trying to finalize plans for the Friday tour of the Ranch.  Please post here or send me a PM of when you are available on Friday for the tour.  There will be limited time on Saturday so I really encourage everyone that can make it to go on Friday also so you'll have lots of time to look everything over and drool.  Thanks.

I've heard back from those planning to tour the Ranch on Friday, and talked with Terry again.  The plan is to meet out there at 10 AM on Friday, then have pizza brought in for lunch if we want.  I'll also be sending PM's to those that I know are attending.  See you then, let me know if you need the address, directions, etc.

It is Thursday around 6:00 am here in So. Cal, and I am almost ready to leave.  I am headed to the Rambler Ranch.  I hope to be there before 10:00 am tomorrow.   Google says about 16 hours of driving, so I think I have plenty of time.  See you all there!

Well, there is a good chance I might make it there. Last night the boss told me they wanted me in Nevada by Sunday so I can be ready to work on Monday. There were no flights available on Sunday and a light bulb went off. I left this morning about 5:30am. I've gone about 450 miles and have 800ish to go.  I'll catch some zzz's at a rest stop. I brought my dirt bike and will be riding Saturday and hope to hook up with everyone at the hotel late Saturday afternoon.

I'm parked at a rest stop about 100 miles east of the Colorado border. Logged about 1050 miles today. Rockhopper performed flawlessly. Time for some Zzzzzzs.
