Default The MOAB Adventure

Get ready farkers, Arlin and I are planning on coming up to Chicagoland sometime around the second week of June to pick up the MOAB. We would love to meet with as many of you fine feathered ILFOs as possible, as well as have plenty of hands on deck to load the beast at Greg's place. Let us know how many of you farkers are interested in some fine food and fellowship.

Is this going to be like a micro mini bash?
If so, I might slide down to meet before Greg moves south.

we need to tawk!!! i have the instructions, and left you the skid.

you will need some 6x6s and 4x4s, a floor jack(greg has one at his house).. you will need one at yours.. and a couple of ratchet straps. and get the 6x12 closed trailer double axel from uhaul.. you wont regret it. They also have a double axle open trailer with a ramp if you dont mind having it exposed to the road, and it will be alot easier to load, but strapping it down upright may be a bitch. I was grateful i had the enclosed one.
