I am opening a thread to see who is interested in heading west with me this year.
Dates are: Aug 30 - Sept 5, 2015.
Plan is to leave after work Saturday, August 29th about 5:00pm and be back Saturday, Sept 5th.
Location: Fruita, CO being the base camp with side trips to other locales the group decides to ride. Places could be: Moab, UT, Crested Butte, CO, Salt Lake City, UT, St. George, UT. (I really want to try Thunder Mountain and the Gooseberry Mesa). However, will ride with group concession so will be open for vote and side trips obviously being in the realm of what the group can afford.
I am hoping by then I will be sporting an F-150 with capability to haul 4 adults comfortably. The Ranger has way too many miles on it and only sits 2 adults comfortably.
Expenses to be spread amongst the group: Gasoline for truck, Camping Fees, Parking Fees, and any group activity fee that is incurred. Each participant is responsible for their own food and drink expenses and personal expenses such as shower/washing clothes/ and any other individual expense.
The only caveat to this open invitation is that this trip is dependent on my wife's health situation and my work situation. I am not 100% a bona-fide Missouri resident as of this posting - still waiting for final approval from my employer to make my residence here permanent so there still exists possibility that I may have to move back to Utah. So this trip may be canceled at any moment or the logistics of the trip be changed at a moment's notice. I will try my best to make the trip as I have been doing this for the past 4 years and is the one thing I really look forward to doing each year.
So each participant who wants to go should make Plan B arrangements in case I find myself back in Utah by the time of the trip. If I find myself back in Utah and my wife's health situation permits, I still plan to make the trip - it will just be that the participants from Kansas City will have to group together to provide transportation to Fruita and back.
That being said, who wants to roll west with me this year?
This thread likely ends here.
