    It is awesome... really, a cool spot. Bring a good camera if you have one, there is lots of material to work with.

    I'm looking forward to riding with you again. Maybe I'll take the Tacoma this time and we can trade off rigs for a little while. I've been wanting to get some pics of the 4Runner in the slot, though.

    RE the class, I'm not sure I can commit as far out as June. That is far away.

    I’ve been wanting to take one of those courses as well. Good stuff to know right there.

    Man, sounds fun, wish I could go. Unfortunately, I have some meetings with some big shots out of headquarters that day.

    Bring the 4Runner if you want pics. S will be bringing her camera...

    We can trade-off another day. I just want to see how well it accelerates after you smoothed out the mapping. Would also like to let S drive it to feel that pull. But another day works for that.

    I wish you could make it, too. We'll get one done sooner or later.

    No deadline, let us know when you know.

    Just brush twice that day.

    It looks like we'll definitely be in the 4Runner. I'll be bringing Rene, the girls, and the dogs so not enough room in the truck.

    We are going to parlay this into a grander family adventure. I got a hotel in Socorro for the night, so we'll be heading that way at days end to get some time in the pool, eat, and refresh. On Tuesday we're going to wake up and make the drive down to White Sands to play more.

    That's what I'm talking about, guys! Glad to see some people making it out.

    As far as a meeting location on Monday, we usually try to do something near the freeway (I25) with a big parking lot. I'm thinking:

    1. Lowes parking lot, Paseo Del Norte / I25, SE corner of intersection -or-
    2. Dirt lot near Discount Tire, Montano / I25, NE corner of intersection

    Both are kind of central to ABQ, we could also do something at the south end, which worked well the last time we ran Monticello

    3. Motel 6 parking lot, Av. Cesar Chavez / I25, SE corner of intersection

    Any thoughts?

    Discount tire lot would work great for us

    But Lowe’s on Paseo wouldn’t be bad either

    Yeah, a functioning rear differential is a rig requirement for this run. Do you have a diff on the way yet?

    White sands is fun! Take a sled or old snow board you don’t care about to slide down the dunes. I’m on a field trip with my oldest now and we hit white sands yesterday. I was nice for the kids to be kids and burn off some energy. Snapped a couple pics of my Tundra down there.

    We'll definitely be taking a sled or two. How were the daytime temps, fairly comfortable? That is one heck of a field trip... my schools always took us to the zoo or the museum.

    The tundra looks right at home with the colors down there.

    Daytime temperatures have been perfect, around 65, no wind. Also like that at the dunes but the temperatures dropped like a rock once the sun went down and it seemed to get dark quick. Both kids are in gifted and talented programs. This weekend was their lego robotics competition. Man I wish legos were as advanced as they are now back when I was a kid!

    Nope. I need to get under it and see what's up. There is also something up with the front end thatf I need to address. So lots of issues. Maybe a mod day at my house will be in the future to get everyone involved?

    Yay........this is all on flat ground.

    We have to head south anyway, so I like either the Motel 6 at Av Cesar Chavez, or the Discount Tire dirt lot on Montgomery. Since that seems to be good with you guys, lets do the dirt lot at the NE corner of Montgomery / I25 next to Discount Tire. There is a gas station there, too, in case anyone needs to top off.

    Uh... yeah, that doesn't look right.
