Mil,

I'd be happy to lead Steel Bender on Tuesday if I'm needed. I've run it 4 times -- one of those times backwards so I feel I'm well acquainted with the trail. Let me know, Shari and I will arrive in Moab on Monday the 7th and will be staying in the KOA at the south end of town.

Mil, I won't hit town til Tues night, but I'll plan on leading Metal Masher on Wednesday and the more difficult version of Hells Revenge on Friday. Not sure about Thursday, Helldorado is calling my name...................but I'd like to see the end of Cliffhanger someday, seem to always storm when I run it......

Having only been to Moab once I don't think I'd make a good trail leader. Some would say that I'd never make a good leader. I'd be willing to serve duty as a mid or tail gunner though. The trails I intend to run right now are Moab Rim, Metal Masher, Helldorado, Hells Revenge (Hard Route) & Rusty Nail. Let me know if I can help out in any way.

Matt, you need to put Pritchett Canyon on your list. If you can run Johson Valley (Brent keeps telling me how cool it was) you'll have a good time with Pritchett.

Milt:

I'm going to try and check out Castle Valley a few days before things get "officially" started on Tuesday. I seem to recall that Rose Garden was not exactly a stocker climb - and want to refresh my memory first, but I suppose you can list me as the "easy" leader on Saturday as well.

Will most likely take in Steel Bender again (not sure if I'm up for Behind the Rocks being 2300 miles from home) and probably Metal Masher - so I have no problem whatsoever in doing cream puff duty the last couple of days. By the way, the Shaffer Trail ride will definitely take in White Rim trail to Musselman Arch and, depending on how adventuresome the "easy" group is, maybe Lathrop Canyon down to the River. And we'll hit Dead Horse Point on the way back (a FULL day folks!).

Also, thinking of running Lockhart Basin Trail part way (to Lockhart Canyon down to the River) and probably Gold Bar (upper Spike) sometime Sat/Sun/Mon before we get started for any other early birds that are interested.

Less than 50 days!

I don't know about you guys, but I always get a bit nervious when Farmer Matt is behind me. :shock: Still I like the line-up. I'll be there Tuesday. Is Behind the Rocks forward or backwards? And does it include Pritchett? I'm thinking BTR, Pritchett, Helldorado, Hell's Hard Way, and Rusty Nail. Or maybe I'll just hide under my bed.[/quote]

Farmer Matt ran Pritchett Canyon last year, ask me how I know. I had a lapse in concentration (its the stereos fault ops: ) and he had to winch me back onto the trail. Not even an obstacle, how embarassing.

I'm hoping not to rub salt in your wounds, but where did that happen? The only places I can think of that you'd need a winch to get back on the trail are really kind of hairy to get back out of.

Mike In NJ... we will be hitting Moab on Friday the 3rd and would like to do Lockhart Basin. I did some of it last year till I found some steering probs and turned back. Was a pretty fun trail actually.

It really happened in the middle of nowhere. We were rolling along on a nothing part of trail, I did something with the stereo, the trail turned very slightly, and my front slid off into some soft stuff with my left front against a rock. Every time I tried forward or back, the front end (open diff) just slid further off the trail.

Interesting. It can happen to any of us at anytime, but I thought you might have tried down 'yellow hill' or something. I couldn't picture anything that you'd need a winch on to get out that wasn't kind of hairy.

My trail choices would be Cliff Hanger, Hell's Revenge the hard way, and Rusty Nail. I wouldn't mind tailgunning on either Cliffhanger or Rusty Nail. I love running Pritchett, but I want to do something different this year. I wouldn't be interested in running lower Helldorado, but I'd take a few folks over to play on lower Proving Grounds if we got back at a decent time on Thursday, or on Sunday. In fact, I'd be willing to lead a run on Moab Rim or lower Proving Ground (or maybe both) on Sunday for those who will still be around.

I think having two start times for the Hell's Revenge run is a good idea. The folks who want to play on the hard stuff can let the second group catch up to us.
