Just so we can coordinate, figure out how much camping space to stake out, etc. Reply with your info in this thread (or PM me) and I'll update this post with the info.

FYI, We will be staying at the KOA Campground in Flagstaff on Tuesday and Wednesday nights before expo. We stayed there last year and it was a good place for doing laundry / resupply before heading down the road to Mormon Lake. It's an older campground so all of the sites are wooded, and there are a couple of nice hikes to be had from there.

We'll be there, unknown right now how much time we'll have. Flat bedding it, but we'll have a tent setup, which should work fine.

I'll send a PM to you, Oh Great Coordinator, with the specifics.

Looks like Cathie can't make it, due to work commitments, plus our geriatric dogs. So it'll just be me, Friday through Sunday. I might show up Thursday at the KOA for a bit though, need to pick up something in PHX area on the way in. Maybe I'll grab a spot at the KOA, dunno yet.

Thanks for that reminder, Allan...I need to sign up for stuff too.

Hey we are up to 9 Fusos (not including vendor vehicles). Should be a good showing!

I know this will seem like a weird request but are any of you guys planning on using your rigs on the obstacle/training course? Reason I ask is, I have never been in a Fuso and am curious what it is like, in an offroad type envrionment. I keep thinking this is our next move from our current setup and would like to take a ride in one, to see if this is the direction I ultimately want to go. Thanks.

Oh, I'll probably do it for the entertainment. We should probably set up a big leader board and do timed runs, but I think that would get us kicked out. But just think of how epic the conversations in OE's in the years to come would be...."hey, you guys remember years back when those fuso guys got kicked for racing on the obstacle course?" :D

This'll give you an idea:

I'll see if I can dig up any vids from driving out to KoH..that was entertaining.
