    Trailer transport form SoCal to Utah

    I'm purchasing a trailer in So Cal. Palm Springs area. If anyone is heading toward Utah in the next couple of weeks it would save me a trip to pick it up. I can cover gas $ for the trip. Even if you are only headed to Las Vegas that would be almost half way for me. PM me if you are interested.

    This Years Chapter Run?

    I noticed we do not have a thread up for the IC Chapter run this year. Will the Geostache Run be the chapter run? That idea was brought up but I do not recall a decision. Was there another run we could use?

    Mercury Villager, possible NSS problem
