    I rarely post ride notices but thought it would be fun to have a couple more people along.

    Here's the deal-
    It's short notice, as in tomorrow March 9th
    Park in Rabbit Valley by noon on the 9th
    Ride to Moab, fairly high speed
    Motel in Moab Friday night
    Ride Sovereign/ Golden stuff/maybe Gemini Bridges or Behind the Rocks
    Motel in Moab Sat night
    Ride more Moab, maybe Slickrock/Steel Bender etc then haul ass back to Rabbit Valley via Kokopelli
    Drive home, unless it's too late. If it is, motel in Fruita

    No GSes or KLRs, unless you're Jim Ironbrewer.
    Ride report unlikely, pictures and stopping to BS discouraged
    120mi fuel range required

    Some picks from somewhere in Kansas. We rode near Rabbit valley the first day, did Poison Spider, Gold Spike, and Gold crack the second day, and Mel's loop the third day. Only do Mels if you like wooped out deep sand.
