Wow, that is a stroke from PA to UT. And I thought 2400 miles from AL to UT was a long way.

just over 1000 miles and 18 hours according to google maps from seattle to moab.

thats a perfect goal for me to get a lift and tires on by then, and front bumper and rock sliders made. it would be so sweet if i could pull it off.
