Moving to Las Vegas, Where to wheel?
Well I just got back,Sunday night from 10 days of Wheelin.
What a fantastic trip. I ran the Dusy/Ershim trail with Gary, and Arron and and 3 other rigs from the Tierra Del Sol 4WD Club. The club members were a great group of people, and really showed a lot of talent in their vehicle prep and driving skills. We had 2 CJ7s(Gary and Arron), 3 YJs and a TJ. Throughout both Dusy and Coyote Lake trail, both of which were extremely rough conditions this year, we had no major failures,(2 side wall punctures(one mine)), and no real stuck situations. I had one hang up, on about the last rock of the Dusi trail, when I went brain dead momentarily and slid sideways off a ledge onto a nice diff hanger,(the high lift, and a little rocking set my YJ free). We all parted ways on Thursday morning, and Jeepchick, and I opted to run a few more trails that we may not have a chance to run for a while. Ill post some more trail info and photos when I have a little more time. I am really looking forward to running the Tierra Del Sol run in 2001, just to get out and wheel with these guys again. I had a great time.
Anyways this leads to my posted topic.
When I arrived back in Nextel range, I was able to begin recieving the load of messages that had built up over the course of 10 days "Incommunicado". The first few were the standard, "where are you?,the worlds comming to an end, what do I do?" types of messages, that usually resolve themselves with any commpotent attempt by, the questioneer. Then came, the message from the President, and CEO, which was much more calm yet attention demanding, "Jeff, I need you to be in Las Vegas, no later than Thursday afternoon, to meet with the Client, his Architect and Engineers"."Also Meet with, the Surveyor, Friday AM, and confirm, that the pad is cetrified". "See if he can also Set building corner staking and some elevation hubs". "Also meet with the excavation contractor, and establish a following Tuesday start, to excavate footings, Monday if they arent taking Labor day off". "youll need to arrainge to have a trailer, tool bin, and security fence delivered". "And dont forget to send all of the current projects close out documents to the office, before departing","by the way I transfered your Labor Foreman to another urgent project, I hope this isnt to much of an inconvenience, feel free to hire new, as needed". "I hope you had a nice vacation".
Talk about vacation re entry shock. Not to mention the office had already shut off my apartment and jobsite phones.
So the Hertz Rental Truck, is now loaded with construction and office equiptment, and is parked at the appartment being loaded with the last personal items. The Jeep and equiptment still need to be loaded onto the trailer, and I should have just about enough time for a quick wave "good buy" to the freinds I have meet here in Reno as Im driving past on the highway.
So does anyone know of a nice furnished House or Apartment available in Las Vegas?
And the most important question.
Where are the hot Wheelin Trails?
I couldnt think of a much better place to spend the winter, and its for a client that I really enjoy building with.
I might even get a chance to wheel over the 3 day,(if I cant talk the excavator into working over the holiday).
Thanks in adavance for any info.
"Viva Las Vegas"
Nobody goes their anymore, because its too crowded
