    We will be leaving Paducah, Texas around the 7 of June and arriving at Ambassador on the 10 of June.

    We will take US-83 to North Platte, NB. and I-80 to Little America, WY. US-30 to Pocatello, ID. then I-84 to Caldwell, ID.

   We do not plan stops. We stop for the night when and where we are. There will be no campgrounds in route.

    Glad to have any and all to caravan. I got a little truck and am slow.

This is the same route we are taking. There is a geyser in Soda Springs ID I want to see. Its probably nothing but whatever, I want to see it.

You will enjoy the geyser in Soda bit is a cold water there is a little restaurant there as well worth a visit for lunch.

I have updated the schedule on the rally home page. 

Larry Joiner, the owner of Cuddy Mountain Transport, is going to bring at least one example of a custom hauler bed he has built for an HDT to Ambassador RV for viewing by the Rally attendees.  Larry has been in the trucking industry for many years and his company / shop is local to the Caldwell area.  Larry is an owner of both commercial and recreational HDT's.  He is available to build hauler beds for HDT's and make other customizations/mechanical modifications as well.  See the rally schedule for more details.

Chad, That is awesome!  Looking fwd to seeing what he does and it will be nice for folks trying to get into an HDT hauler.  I'll be there with my homemade bed for anyone who is looking to do it inexpensively.

We'll be heading to the rally from Flaming Gorge (great trout fishing and BLM boondocking)!

I'm looking forward to checking out his work and talking with him as well.  I have some ideas on how I want to improve my bed as a retirement gift to myself.

 

Additionally, I sent out emails to all the rally attendees about this, but thought I should probably mention it here as well.  I worked out a discount deal with a local company that washes RV's.  They are giving a rally discount to get your rig washed or waxed.  See my email for more details or let me know if you have any questions.

BOTH BATTERIES HAVE BEEN SPOKEN FOR, thank you Jon.

Chad, if this is an inappropriate post, Please delete.

Howdy All,

I will be changing over to Lithium batteries whilst at the rally.

I have two 8D, AGM batteries that are five years old and should have at least 3-4 years of life left in them.  How about 100 dollars each, let me know if your interested they can be picked up at the rally.

Dave

Well unfortunately I had to cancel our reservation as the USA/Canada border is still closed so will miss seeing all our America friends again this summer. ☹️ Hope everyone has a great time at the rally we sure are bummed about not being able to attend.

I am slowly getting things ready to head to the rally.  I was out of town last week at a very relaxing family reunion.  Now it is back to the grind and rally prep until we hit the road at the end of next week.  

Rick, you and Carrie will be missed.  Hopefully you guys can make the fall trip 😉.

Howdy All,

Finally got the Can Am back together, hope you DON'T ever break a Ball Joint, long story best told around the camp fire.  Putting around getting things done will leave the morning of the 13th from home, spend that night camping at the Caldwell Walmart stocking up on supplies, arrive at the WCR on the 14th.

Here's wishing we could have visited with our Canadian friends again, someday maybe it'll sink in how crazy this madness is.  Safe travels to everyone, so looking forward to seeing our semi-mobile friends.

Dave, Donna, Newt and Willy

The rally is just over a week away.  It will be our biggest one yet.  We have 50 (possibly 51) registrations, with almost an even split of first timers and returning attendees.  The weather looks like it should be great for the week.  We are really looking forward to it.  I still have a lot to get packed and ready, but I can't wait.  😁

There was a change in our plans. We will be running solo this trip.

Leaving northeastern Nebraska Thursday. Heading across I 80 to Little America WY. From there tanking Hy 30 to I 15 then to I 84 in ID. We are staying at various Harvest host along the way. Set to arrive at Caldwell Monday morning.

Howdy All,

This concerns those who will be attending our "After WCR Rally, SXS Rally"  I received from the Idaho department of parks and recreation, the sticker to be placed on my SxS, it came with NO instructions on how it was to be displayed on the rig.  After three phone calls and two emails I finally got the information needed, on a SxS, place the sticker on the RIGHT REAR FENDER.  This is a very small sticker, it looks more like a license plate tab then an Off Road sticker so when you install it make sure it's visible but protected from being scraped off.

Dave,

I got a registration card, but no sticker.  Did the sticker come separately for you?

I got the sticker as well in the same envelope the registration came in. It is so small and not really a sticker. Mine had no backing and tore when I tried to separate the front from the back. I just taped it to the registration card. I will deal with the officer if questioned. My sticker will not stick to anything.
