I think your spider bite must be the worst of it. No injuries, no broken truck parts, recovery gear not used at all. With all the great scenerie, great comraderie, and great food, it was a fantastic trip. Although, sometimes the need to break out the recovery gear adds to the fun.

Sorry John, you made such quick work of that tire change that it seemed like it didn't even happen. :D

When you point at one of the pictures in Photobucket, four brackets drop down with links. The bottom one says IMG Code. Just copy it and then paste it here. You can also paste the link to the page where all your photos are.

I was under that same full moon only 50 miles north in Vegas - and it hurt... Really wanted to be out there and was very tempted to visit the campsites - kinda glad I did not as it looks like everyone closed up early in the evening. And as it turns out, I could have traveled on Saturday as my client at CES was nowhere to be found - go figure, I just toured the Audiophile suites at the Venetian - I suppose thats some consolation for not bouncing around the Cima area.

Darn - I got to do this route. Next time... really. Its in my backyard.

Glad everyone made it well... Surprised to hear about a spider bite in the dead of winter.
