If possible, I'll be the gunner for Thursday "Arches", Friday "Poison Spider", & "Fins" with Ken on Saturday. Dad will love those trails in his new cruiser!

I can lead a trail on Friday or Saturday. Are we doing Steel Bender? I could do that one if you need it. Also Fins & Things, Porcupine, Rose Garden Hill, Elephant Hill, Gold Bar, Chicken Corner, Tip Toe Behind The Rocks, etc.

I'd also lead or gun Sevenmile Rim anytime that works for you.

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has responded so far! I have done some updates to the post at the top, but haven't plugged everyone in yet. I am still waiting to hear back from Carl at Just Differentials and Joe Calleja at CTS on what trail/day they want to do. And I still have more vendors to contact that the committee assigned to me.

FYI, we are not doing Steelbender, Rose Garden Hill, or Tip Toe this year.

Spoke with Joe Calleja today. He will lead and Colorado Toyota Specialists (CTS) will sponsor Behind the Rocks on Friday.

I put in a call to Carl at Just Differentials and left a message.

Carl is going to lead and Just Differentials will sponsor Porcupine Rim on Friday.

Jeff,

I can lead on friday and saturday. In the past I have led Moab Rim on Saturday. I can lead just about anything and I will have my own tail gunner (Jason Call). Right now, we are both signed up for Poison Spider on Friday and Moab Rim on Saturday. Let me know what your needs are and I'll adjust.

I've got it marked on my calendar that the "Trail Leaders" Run is 4/3-4/6/14. Is this correct or did my digital assistant fritz out again?

Scott had dates in mind but (I don't think) he's posted them yet. I think it was going to be too close to the Safari or something and he was thinking of changing them.

I still need to get registered this week, but I'm willing to lead Golden Spike on Thursday and Fins and Things on Friday if you need a leader.

Edit: I didn't see that Friday's Fins run is sponsored by Larry H Miller Toyota so nevermind on that one. I'm still willing to lead GS on Thursday.

Hi Adam, I am going to go ahead and pencil you in for Spike on Thursday. Thanks!

Sounds good. I'll plan on it. I'll be sending in my registration at the end of this week. Hopefully you can get me on the other trails I'm hoping for. :)

Hi Ryan, no I don't yet. When I updated the first post in this thread either yesterday or the day before I basically said i was going to hold off adding any more until we see which trails fill enough to run. I went ahead and took Adam for Spike because I am 99% sure we'll run it both Thursday and Saturday. But different years are different as far as which trails are popular. Last year I only had 2 sign up for Hell's Revenge on Friday, which is really odd because that trail is usually really popular. So I moved those two guys around so they got to do Hell's, just on a different day, and we didn't do Hell's at all on that day. I know you were talking about doing Moab Rim, but I don't know which days we're going to run it this year. The last several years we've only had enough interest in that trail to run it one or two days.

One good thing is that it looks like we're going to have the luxury of more leaders this year than the past several years, so we may be able to run more total trails with fewer rigs on each trail, which is always nice.

But we're only about 2/3 full right now so I really haven't started sorting things down yet. It makes for less overall work if the event is totally full or at least as full as possible before we start on trail assignments. There might be a few obvious ones that stand out, for example if I see we've got 12 rigs on Moab Rim on Saturday already, and I know you've already offered to lead it, that will be easy to figure out.

Box Rocket
02-06-2014, 06:26 PM
My two cents......I would schedule Moab Rim for Saturday and have Ryan lead it. At the very minimum I know of 4 trucks already planning on running it that day. Ryan, Jason Call, Myself, and Bob Holliday. I'm fairly certain that others will sign up for it, even if it's a small group.

MicahMan

Hey Zepp, when you get a chance could you PM me a list of who is signed up for Golden Spike on Thursday. I need to figure out a tail gunner and would like to see if I recognize any of the people on the run that could do it.

Rzeppa

Safari LTD is going to attend Marv Specter's memorial on May 4th, and have decided that the logistics of Cruise Moab and going to California were just too much, so they have pulled out of Cruise Moab 2014.

While we are disappointed and will miss them very much, we certainly understand. Cruise Moab is every year. Marv's memorial is only once.

This leaves holes to fill for Sevenmile on Friday, Wipeout on Saturday, and safety inspections for the whole event since Safari was going to lead safety inspections.

MicahMan

Hi Jeff,
This will be the fourth time I ask to Lead a trail. I might start to take a hint and stop offering ;)

Either of these trails I would be happy to lead. They are both within the capabilities of either of my rigs I may bring.

I will be on the overnighter in the Swell and would miss Thursday but would be happy to help with Tech inspections Friday and Saturday. I'll ask Wasatch if there are any that could help with Tech as well.

I am sorry Safari won't be there but Understand.

03-01-2014, 03:26 PM
MicahMan...please give Jeff some time. He has a TON of stuff going on right now, and I'm sure he will get you assigned to lead a trail or two soon. Your offer to lead a trail is greatly appreciated. A lack of a prompt response to your offer is not intended as any sort of slight...it just takes time to figure out these trail leader schedules, and we are way ahead of the game this year thanks to the many early and generous offers for trail leading assistance...yours included.

What Sascha said (thank you Sascha). Micah, I will most certainly take you up on your offer. Since we opened up registration I have spent considerable hours answering inquiries from registrants, and very little time analyzing the registration database to determine which trails we are going to run on which days, and thus where we need leaders and gunners. I have only yesterday provided the rosters to the overnight trail leaders. Right now is busy season for the committee.

We have missed you the last couple of meetings. We hope you've been staying abreast of new and ongoing developments via the committee section of this forum and also our internal emails.

I saw your registration come through Greg, and you are the 7th to ask for that trail on Friday so I'll probably take you up on that. Matt Farr and Brian Wilson are also on that trail that day.

Many times in the past we have coordinated the Sevenmile group with the Wipeout Hill group and met for a HUGE potluck at Determination towers, including musical entertainment (guitars, hand drums, native American flute). The main trick is that the Sevenmile group has to move fast and the Wipeout group has to move slow to make the meet-up happen, but is is always a bunch of fun when we can pull it off.

Hey Jeff, Yah I've tried that before and know what to do. You have to miss the arch and only take a quick peak at the Wipe Out Hill itself. Then you can make it. I'll work it out with Nacman since he is leading Wipe Out.

Hey Jeff, after last nights conversation regarding this trail. I need you to understand that I will lead this trail no matter the attendance. Cuz I don't really want to do anything else on that Friday. It has become somewhat of a tradition for me just like Elephant Hill use to be for me on Thursday.

Jeff,

What he said, only replace "cheeseman" with "mistapuggs" and "seven mile" with "Moab rim" and "Friday" to "Saturday".

Bump - just did a huge update on leaders and gunners. Attached to this post is the spreadsheet with leaders and gunners. The forum doesn't take well to tables but it is easier to see what's going on when you look at the spreadhseet.

This is a note from my friend Jim Deer. If you need someone, he is available and experienced. Terry

I'm signed up for Cruise Moab and will be doing Moab Rim on Friday (doing Pritchett Canyon on Thursday and Area BFE on Saturday.....both led by Justin Robbins of Redline Landcruisers). Sean Sykora will also be on the Moab Rim run. If you recall, he and I led the Saturday Cliffhanger run year before last. We'd be glad to lead the Friday Moab Rim run this year (I can't even remember how many times I've done that trail). I know you're not going this year but if you want to check with the powers-that-be to see if they need anybody to lead that run it would be fine with us.

Interesting. I spoke with Justin Robbins today and he asked me to move Jim and Sean onto Pritchett with him (I had them assigned and confirmed on different trails - the ones they'd asked for).
