That's a heck of a drive bro. I'm still hoping to make it but as usual I will be a last minuet decision.

I'll be there Sunday the 21st. The plan was a thursday-Sunday right? So how's it gonna work if everyone's at the top and people come on saturday or sunday? Meet at the top? I could make it Thursday but I have to work Saturday and I live close by so if I came back sunday i'd go broke from gas. I'm gonna come up Sunday with a friend with a land rover and possibly a wrangler.

SAL I got the same safari rack you did. Did you see a big difference in gas mileage? Before I was averaging 15mpg highway/city and now i'm down to 12.6 after installing. I'm thinking about taking the wind screen off hoping to make it a little more aerodynamic. I had the same problem you did with it not laying flat.

brandon, i take my rack off when not in use for that reason. I have a Rola
rack and it isnt too time consuming to remove it...but worth the gas mileage.

cb's and cell phones. I'll be on 4 or shout out commander and someone should answer.

we can pm each other with our contact info or anyone that wants to can pm
thier info to me and i will distribute to the attendees. if you pm your contact
info to me, put ok on it for me to share with the group, HIPPA you know....
i'm not going to share with anyone unless you give me the ok.

also want an I.C.E. name & number.

i am going to call doug for some of that slab wood he gave us before,
bring a bundle of the decontaminated wood if you can. 2x4's work too.
I,ll tell you my "we're in the flippin forrest get your own wood story"....

I guess one thing you can do is open your rear lid then push the rack back as far as possible. This with my new uni-strut mounting system I came up with has almost eliminated wind noise not sure about MPG's yet. You can find my latest mods in my garage from the link below all the mods are hyper linked in the first post.

If you can, I would come after work on saturday. Its not far of a drive and someone can come meet you if its almost dark. The thing about sunday is its usually a wind down pack up and leave day.
