    I just checked with the FS, there's still some snow drifts and mud up on Woodenshoe road, they expect it to be passable in a week or so :clap

    Jeff, are you sure those are psychedelic hills or was it the influence of a newly legislated substance that was at work?:lol3

    It's been awhile, but I don't remember that building in that area. Of course I may have been under the influence of long time legally obtained substance like tequila.:D

    That's pretty country around there.

    The old ranch house is a slight detour off the main road, just north of the Muddy crossing.

    I've started packing. Managed to find a good beer in cans and a sturdy 12-pack box. The plan is to pack them next to frozen drinking water. This is for the first night. First come, first serve :deal

    We were in the Park this week doing the White Rim. The Park HQ in town told us the most tickets given out are for non DOT tires. So I changed out my rear dirt tire for a D606. Then, of course, never saw a Ranger the whole way around.

    So.. Ben could you or somebody clarify the gas situation at the 2nd night camp (Sat at the Swell). Will you have 2 gallons for each of us? Do you want us to bring a full gas can to the Moab Diner on Friday morning or how do you want to work this?

    thanks for doing all of this again!
