Food, Water and GAS are a must. We will not see civilization for the next few days. Most roads we will be exploring can be done in a stocker. Recomend good driver experiance. We will be exploring areas frequented by the Wild Bunch and Butch Cassidy(hence the name of the run;) ).

We will be on cb channel 4.

That's what we have done the last two years. Meet mid day Friday and head home Monday(some Sunday). If that's what works better for everybody else, then that's what we will do..

Alright, Daniel and myself have got a good plan for this years run. Going to change it up a bit to:) . Or plan is to meet thursday in Green River Utah. A good meeting place in case of any last minute supplys;) . We will head west into the San Rafael Swell, enter the Swell through Black Dragon Canyon. From there, head to Swaseys leap. After exploring the leap, we will set up camp for the night. Friday: We will head to Cane Wash from Buckhornwash/camp. Over Fixit Pass, through North fork and tunr off to South Fork Coal Wash(this way I cant get lost this time:hill: . South Foark will put us into Eagle Canyon. Friday Night camp either at Swaseys cabin or Dutchmans arch.
Saturday: We will head south and either setting up camp around the Hidden Splendor Mine, or around chute Canyon. We will hike one of the slot canyons(cant remember what one now:eek: ). Depending on how much time is left, maybe do a little exploring around the area?? Sunday we will pack up and head home.

I'm planning on heading out for the week. I will be heading to the Henry Mountains. Have one rout planned. If anyone is interested in joining me for that portion, please let me know.

Ok - it is drawing closer. This is a real sleeper area about to be discovered after Perry's article in TT this month (great article :thumb: ) and Larry Heck's article in Off-Road magazine (October Issue - and the first of a six part article following the trail all the way to Canada).

Any more people going to take the plunge and come? questions?

I am planning on this run, unless the job keeps me from going. We are starting up the central plant at the new brighton hospital the week before so if things go well I should be able to get free!
How much extra fuel are you going to carry ? After TBP I want to make sure I have enough.

Dan, glad to see you'r going to make it:thumb: . As for fuel, I had the runner full, plus four extra jerry cans last year. Was enough for me. Year before, I only had one extra jerry can, almost had to have Wes pull me into Green River:eek: Robbie had an aux fuel tank in his 80 and did not run out..

Been there almost needed a strap to get over cottenwood pass on TBP. My fuel light came on coming down Taylor Pass going back to camp. I discovered in camp the next morning that there was a gas station south east of taylor resevior at the cabins. Put 10 bucks in @ 3 something a gallon to get into BV.That has cured me of pushing it on fuel. Lookin forward to this run wanted to go last year but it didn't work out:thumb:

My co-pilot (in addition to Zan & Jayna) will be a guy named Steve Selwyn. Steve is a good friend and like a second dad to me - he spent as much time raising me as my parents! He's coming from upstate NY.

We may drive part way (like to GJ) Wednesday or leave at daybreak Thursday.

So here are some of the routes i'm thinking about for the first part of the week(if any one is interested...) One route to get into the Henrys i'm thinking about is Town wash and Bull Mountain trail (http://www.treknow.com/utah/backroads/central/bull_mountain.htm). From there, continue south to Bull Creek pass, hopefully finding camp near Pennellen Pass. Planning on camping there for two days. Looking at doing Copper Ridge trail(not the one near Arches by the way..) one of those days. Some good history on one of the Spanish mines in the area. After exploring the Henrys, I will make my way back to Green River to meet with the rest of the group. One thought is to take the Hans Flat road to Saucer Basin and Lower San Rafael rd into Green River. Don't have much info right now on that route, so might hold up till another date....

Lets just say that if you don't make enough "brownie points," you can still go wheeling or working on the truck as much as you want, you just can't go home! :eek: :bowdown: :Princess: Brownie points are a good thing....the more you accumulate the higher value each one has! :thumb: http://www.netshrine.com/vbulletin2/images/smilies/naughty.gif

Dan, the maps I have been using are the National Geographic, latest updated one includes the roads in the wilderness boundries for the swell(old ones didnt.. Pass Patrol has some good guide books of the area. Utah Adventures also has some slight info on the area. Daniel and myself also have the travel managment maps. Thats what I got for right now on the area...

Ok fellow outlaws. With Perry leaving tomorrow I wanted to put my information out here and swap with the rest and see who is going. My current plan is to head out Wednesday with Steve (and my dogs) and probably stay the night in Grand Junction.

Maps: the National Geographic one is the Trails illustrated #712. That plus the Travel Management plans we got out there two years ago are all we have - its remote country!

Anyone have a fire pan?

My tenative plan as of right now is to head out @ 4AM on thursday. That gives me 8 hours to get to Green river. At 345 miles, averaging 55 MPH, I would hope that is more than enough. Can't leave the night before. I'll be in the silver '85 FJ60, snorkel, arb.

If I knew what we needed for a fire pan, I might be able to make one.

whoa 8 hours :eek: it's shorter to green river than moab, only one exit (I think) past the turn south to moab. 6 should be plenty and you know how slow my truck is.

OK. I'm planning to see you all at the truck stop. Noon (or 5AM for Nathanial!). Thursday. Frydaddy - you still in?

Remember lots of water and extra gas.

Also, bring a shovel. Perry says there has been LOTS of rain and we can expect washouts (fun!)
