Well?
And,
When are you going?
For how long?
Camping? Hotel?
How long do you think the drive would be?
Hot and humid in Kansas?
I'm trying to decide if I want/can go and I just realized I better get it figured out soon.

Yep, I'm in the same boat. Guy and I went last year, we camped (that sucked). It was fun, but I sure wished I had my Club Cab or RC there. I'm actually not sure I can afford a trip out there this year. But I haven't decided.

The drive took about 15 hours (from Logan) with stops about every 200-250 miles for gas and a break.

It'll probably be very hot and humid. Don't know for sure, last year it was Memorial Day weekend, not July 4th.

Come on guys, you gotta go. Especially you Trenton. Won't it be cool to be able to brag about attending all Ram Jams ;D
I know, I know.

Having RJ at an off-road park will make it even worse for me to not have the RC there. Plus I have at least 2 more trips to Moab planned this fall.

I'm getting 33's back on the Club Cab tomorrow, then I'm towing an '88 Ram down from Idaho on Saturday. We'll see how much the mileage improves over the 5-6 mpg I got a couple months ago. Then maybe I can make a decision. Maybe. :p

Hey, get back to your honeymoon. ;D

Well, you can always drive you new truck down. If you don't bring the RC I will let you drive mine, as long as you fix whatever you break :)
Thats a very generous offer there Sam. But I'd probably do something silly like leave the radiator cap off or something. LOL ;)

But all that assumes you're getting your RC done this time, and I gotta admit I'm having my doubts this year too. ;D

BTW, is Drew coming this year? Just curious.

Ha Ha. I doubt Drew is coming this year. I asked him if he wanted to ride up with mrpeal and I but I didn't get an answer.

I still have to pull the engine, tranny and tcase out so I can drop the 440 and bb tranny in. Engine is ready to come out though, just have to hook up the chain and pull it out.

I have alot to do, some of it won't get done but isn't really needed for Ram Jam anyway, would just be cool to have (like the onboard air and welder).

Cool. I have an onboard compressor in the works for when I drop my 440 in the truck. Planning on using an old A/C compressor. ;D

Gentlemen,
It is with great regret that I am officially being a candy-ass. After a meeting with the financial advisor (Heather), we both agreed that it be best not to attend Ram Jam this year.
The following are more of my "excuses"
-Thats a long drive for me, but whats worse, is my son strapped in his seat for the 15 hr. endeavor.
-I'm sure it would be a blast, but the hot, humid weather doesn't sound appealing to me or the family.
-My work is forcing us to use 6 days of our vacation when THEY want us to, so I need to hold onto some days.

The wife (the trooper she is) and I, probably would have ignored the "excuses" and went, but the money issue couldn't be overlooked.
I'm pretty bummed, :\'( I was really looking forward to meeting some people, Smokey, Sam, GunPilot, Primergrey and Purepleasure (of course) but not Marty (J/K) ;D just to name a few.
Hopefully next year.
Curse me and call me a sissy-la-la if you must, I understand.

Don't worry about it. It's perfectly understandable. If it's any consolation, I didn't think it was all that hot and humid last year. Hey, maybe we could wrangle up a regional Ram jam later this summer. We almost got GP and twister to come to a Utah meet last summer. Maybe we could get Smokey and Primer Grey to come too. :D
