    What exactly is your June/July status?

    Sorry I am not super familiar with the military and exactly what different statuses entail. :)

    Ya def gana take everyone out there that's such a cool area especially when it's sunny out. But we will def hit that on our way to the logging roads

    :D

    I won't be in kodiak the last week of June to July 21st I will be home on vacation aka leave. That's the only reason why I can't.

    good cause as long as we take it easy through that spot we should be fine.

    I think June is too early for our meet anyway.

    So the last week of July would work? And then Aug/sep?

    Right now I am thinking early August would be good.

    How does that work for people?

    Works for me!

    How do you guys think a truck with no lift and stock tires would do out there?

    Not good on Saltrey Cove...Chiniak Hwy, you'll be good for the most part. I went out a few of the logging roads off Chiniak Hwy, I wouldn't try Saltrey on anything other then a lifted truck or an ATV.

    I've driven saltre in a stock bronco 2 all it had was a small body lift. But it if it wasn't a beater then I wouldn't have done it. Def need a little bit of lift.
    You could ride with one of us, you will be able to do all the other trails just fine tho.
    Ya the last week of july on would work and I'll make sure that I don't deploy then inthinkmi could switch with some if it comes down to it.

    sweet! Well, you should have plenty of warning of when we are coming :D

    So I don't know what dates I was looking up before to get $74 one way.....:(

    I did some more looking today for july/august. It ranges from $220 to $300 one way (you+truck) in that time period it looks like.... Just FYI :)

    Hahaha. No kodiak for you! ;).

    Just make sure you don't miss when we all buy feery tickets. If youre not on the list i wont remember to send you angry reminder messages. That might have just been because i wanted money though...

    HAAAHAHA. True. My summers truly are the busiest though. Always hard for me to plan. BUT, I will make it work whichever way I can.

    Your note scared me a little. All I heard in my head was "I want my money bitch! !!""" Lol
