Me and some guys are heading to Moab at the end of May. I'm leaving Asheville on Thursday, May 17 with a friend from Charlotte, picking up a friend in Boulder, CO and arriving in Moab on Friday evening. I'll be there all week before heading back to Boulder on Saturday, 5/26 and would like to invite anyone to join us who wants to.
We have a handful of guys coming and going throughout the week. There are a couple of guys from Denver, a guy from Grand Junction and several people from Texas (who I don't know) who've talked about getting together. I've also been after my 'old partner' Keith over at Roving Tracks to hop in and join us for at least a couple of days in that 110 of his (Keith, you listening?
The trail agenda is a little open at this point, but I've been thinking about something like:
First, recover from the 1800mile drive
...then run something like Hells Revenge and hit the Brewery
anything a friend of mine could run in a rented, built jeep
maybe Poison Spider/Golden Spike/Gold Bar OR Rusty Nail/Golden Spike/Gold Bar OR Behind the Rocks OR ...??? (later that evening, a friend of mine with a 'built' LR4 arrives, so any trails from Monday evening on need to be a little tamer
Me and LR4 guy head to backcountry on White Rim for the night (welcome to join us, but you'll need a permit to camp)
return from backcountry, maybe a quick trail/sightsee, probably hit Arches for pics at sunset
moderate trail or one difficult with bypasses, will probably do early morning and late evening arches pictures
Possibly a light trail/sight see
LR4 guy ships truck and heads out, I go to Boulder for rest of wknd and then catch flight home/truck gets shipped
So, if anyone is interested in joining in or is going to already be out there, let me know ... would love to catch up.
