    Sounds like a lot of fun. Sure wish I had a jetplane with a cargo hold. That would be the ultimate toy hauler. :D

    bring an empty jerry can to my house or borrow from someone who lives close by to my house.

    according to tim, 200 miles between fill up. ymmv. plus add another 50-100 miles to fart around. i think, i will be ok with 5 more gals. others, you can ride to bar10 which we will and you could get gas there too for $$$.

    i am trying to get the support truck driver to buy the groceries. we will just chip in $30 each (my guess). burgers, hot dogs, etc. for 2 or 3 nights. breakfast and lunch, we're on our own. store the food in the cooler.


    prepare to carry your camping equipment back to mesquite since the support truck will leave us on monday morning.



    pic doesn't worky...:cry

    hope you can make it randy. this is the kind of ride you and many of us are here for......:D

    i'm bringing sliced bread, bagel, dried meat like salami, beef jerky, and power bars.

    in the evening, we will have bar-b-q. i will take care of the firewood and charcoal.

    Duy,

    I can drop off a gas can for you at Joel's place. Just let me know...Wish I could make it, but I've been a slacker lately. It will be a maintenance weekend for me.

    But that $26 included showers and all ranch amenities except for a bed to stay overnight... Sack lunch too.

    $8 a gallon gas is not bad for the convenience. That is for 89 octane too. If you need 91, carry some octane booster.




    It sounds like this plan is commin' together! :clap

    If you could, that will be terrific. It'll save me a long haul to Burbank!

    Joel - I'll box the KLR up and haul my camping gear/food.

    Nope she found a deal and never looked back - once she wears that one out I may still have mine - I figure it won't be long with the miles and adventures she's having versus my laziness in offloadong mine I might be able to make her a deal

    looking forward to getting back out with the LA rider maybe the ANF will be open back up by then

    did you ever get your passerger pegs welded - if not let me know

    good hearing from ya
