Yo Yo Yo team Utah, it seems like there is AD, Mike, Sam, and myself headed to Occupy Eloy this weekend.

What time can everyone leave Thursday. I am hoping to get out of work early on Thursday, but we shall see.

I plan to get my stuff to AD's Wednesday so we dont have to pack it Thursday.

I was planning on packing the tent and sleeping at the field to save $. What is everyone else doing? I need to keep things on the cheap this trip. Sam, are you camping? Mike, what do you have reserved?

So lay it down, what are we doin?

Sounds like the stopover in St George both ways is fixed and a great price!

Exchange email addresses and sort out the details, as often as I've done this (read not very ). That has been the most convenient way.

Also it's just rubbing it in our faces that you get to go have fun this weekend while I have to stay here and not fly.

I have a 2 double bed room reserved at Days Inn Casa Grande (9 miles from the field). But for $5 more I can cancel and get one with 2 doubles plus a sofa bed ($54.59 per night + $8 tax). That would cost 3 of us a total of $20.87 each per night. If Sam decides to join us instead of camping then it would drop the price to $15.87 each per night, and Jon said he would sleep on the floor. Let me know what you all want to do. To me the price is well worth the better nights sleep (windy nights in tents aren't fun), a shower (you will be very dirty), continental breakfast, and wi-fi. And yes, we have free first class lodging in St. George both ways.

Sorry Jim... rub, rub, rub...

Yes, and like J said best of luck, bring out the wolf pack and show them how it's done!

You know I'm just jealous.

Mike if it would be that cheap I am game for the bigger room. Hopefully Sam could be suckered into it as well so its in the 30 range. I am happy on the floor.

So AD, did you have reservations somewheres?

Sounds like the place Mike has with a sofa bed would be the ticket.

AD, Mike, can you guys work that out.

And dont get me wrong, I LOVE SNOW and everything, but AZ is gonna be REAL NICE!

Ok, I reserved the 2 double bed plus sofa bed room (cancelled the other one). Cost was slightly more than quoted last night because I forgot to change it to multiple guests (still had it at one). But I will pay the difference if it matters.

Does AZ sound nice right now? Here's a pic I just took out my office window at work a few minutes ago, and it's supposed to get much worse as the day progresses. Just the beginning... I'm ready to flee southward.

We have snow plows out right now and are scrambling to get the salters on the trucks for tonight. Ummm yeah, was kinda hoping the weather would not have turned so soon.

Today sucks. Friday and Saturday will suck too (well for some of us anyway). But I'm looking forward to a little wintertime thermalin'!

Good luck to everyone AZ bound. Kick some butt and remember to have fun. I kind of broached the subject of pimping out my Concept for JonL last night with Miss Concept (yeah, it's a she). She gave me that "look" that meant NO WAY. Apparently she's seen how JonL treats little Miss Blaster and wants nothing of it!
