The dates are set for the 2017 Invasion....July 19-21,2017. Dave at the KOA has set aside our usual spots. The map will be posted soon, but until then, the old map can be used for reference. Site 47 has been reserved as usual by me, and will be the site of the potluck. When you call to reserve your spot, please tell them that you are with the Full Sized Jeep club. The KOA (Dave) loves having us and looks forward to seeing us every year

Lets get this ball rolling now!!!!!!!

I've already reserved 45 for the whole week! Since I already got married and watched a baby fall out of my wife I should have no superior commitments in 2017!

You know 2016 was the first year I didn't see Dave or his wife. So is this the 'official' thread or are we just getting the ball rolling.

I might have to extend my Ouray stay for longer than a week! I miss it already.

We're gonna try and bring 2 FSJ's for 2017. My GF had such a great time this year she's talking her folks into bringing my GW while we take the J10.

Got my reservations in. I am bringing a bunch of family with me. So, it made more sense for us to rent a house. My dad is bringing his RV though and will be in spot 58A.
Priorities
1. God
2. Wife ( Sarah )
3. Children ( Lane & Dirk )
4. Work
5. Jeep

Man it is hard to keep them in the right order!

I plan on attending. Ill probably be renting a house in either Ouray or Silverton or somewhere in between. I plan to leave Friday after work and get there by Sunday so I will be there all week. Any Texas folks doing the same and care to convoy?

Well welcome to the forum! Yeah, Ouray is always a good time. Looking at your sig I can tell you have a built rig. You won't need it for Ouray but I am glad you are bringing it.

Well, it could be more built by then as I'm looking to swap in a t98/Dana 20 set up for better gearing and MPG. But we look forward to some off-roading and having in and meeting people. :)

Okay, it just got real. Have a log cabin booked for the entire week! This will be my first Ouray trip with the group and definitely my first with a trail worthy vehicle. Now I just need to decide whether to take the GW or the Cherokee so I can focus all my repair efforts on one.

My current job contract will be ending around the time of the invasion. I'm working on having something to take its place long before the contract runs out. But I'm not going to commit until things solidify for me.

Somebody somewhere always needs a new space robot to stick on a rocket, I'm sure something will pop up, I just hope it doesn't mean you have to move to Texas!

Texas wouldn't be as bad as some other options. I could stand to live down there again if I had to.

If you can't fix it with a hammer or duct tape you have an electrical problem.

Casey and I ran into Dave as we were checking out. Said he was very grateful for our group and looks forward to seeing us every year.

Edit: was trying to quote WILL E but it didn't go thru.
