Outlaws Run 2009: Hole in the Wall

Route: I plan to take the group from Browns Park in north eastern Utah to Hole in the Wall in central Wyoming. Two great hideoutes by the Wild Bunch.

Duration: the trip will be October 19th-25th.

Terrain: Easy to moderate.

Plan on bringing lots of Food, fuel and gear needed for an extended stay away from civilization.

CB channel 4, Ham: 146.460.

So it looks like there is going to be a possible date change to the Outlaws Run this year. I was told by Wyatt (over at EU.com) that November is a bit unpredictable in terms of weather and trail conditions, plus a few sites that I wanted to visit may not be open. After looking at the weather I was thinking of moving the trip to the third week in October.

Let me know if this works for you guys.

It's hard to say how much high speed will be involved as I dont know the trails other that reading. But I guess giving the nature of the group, there might be some:). Martin did a good job hanging with the group last year, so I doubt you'd have any issues. With a few more days for exploration, we will have less of a reason to rush the trip, plus were almost at 10 vehicles for the trip, so naturaly will be a little slower.

I'll put you on the list, and look forward to having ya along:beer:.

So many things to do, so little time off. This would be a fun one but can't do a whole week.

We've done BLM roads from Vernal up to about Rock Springs, but it's gets less pretty after Green River, WY unless you like drilling rigs and cattle. But after the Flaming Gorge, flatness is tough to take. Also very hot, this was in August and before we had A/C in the truck... So we turned east and headed up into the Snowy Range for a couple of days of relief before heading back to Denver rather than push through up to Pinedale.

So that part of the trip, from I-80 and 191 up to Kaycee would be cool, so maybe we'll meet you for the couple of days at the end of the trip. Plus I need to get up to Lander, I promised a friend we'd come up and visit.

Hey Perry, I posted this in the ExpUtah thread too.

I have been doing some reading and found a couple of sites that might be of use for the trip:

BLM page (http://www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Buffalo/recreation/holeinwall.html) with directions, trail description and a map

There's also a guest ranch that borders the Hole in the Wall area that might be a cool stopping point to camp, get some food, maybe rent some horses... Might be worth calling them and telling them about our planned route following the Outlaw trail and see what they recommend. The site says their season is May 31-Nov 1.

Yeah, I was thinking that if you explain to the ranch the trip plans and about how a couple of magazine articles might come of it, they might be willing to work with the group on something (like a guide and horses to visit the Holeinthewall) to gain some exposure. This trip could make for a great Toyota Trails or Overland Journal article. Just a thought.

Is there still room on the roster? I'd like to be included in this adventure. I expect to have no mods done to my truck before then, but I'm hoping to be all recovered from my kidney transplant by then, so no need for pesky dialysis appointments messing up my wheeling plans anymore.

I'll be on 32" ATs and have open diffs. I've got good strap anchors front an rear and am not too proud to take the easier lines.

Hey John,

were at about 14 vehicles for this trip so far and i'm cutting things off, due to the fact that I dont know the area and i'm wanting to make sure the terrain can handle our group. I'll put you on the tentative list, as i'm sure there might be a few folks dropping out before trip date.

Some pics I found of sites we'll see along the route this year as we follow the Outlaw Trail. From what I know of Perry's plan, we'll be traveling from Brown's Park Utah up past the Flaming Gorge, through the Red Desert, Past Ghost towns, geological formations and finally ending at the Outlaw Cave and the Hole In The Wall near Kaycee, Wyoming. Hope some more Rising Sun folks can make the trip, should be a good one.

So, you're thinking of starting in Brown's Park Utah, then backtracking into Colorado North of Dinosaur before heading north into Wyoming? Why not start in Dinosaur, go to Brown's Park, then Flaming Gorge, then towards Rock Springs, Killpecker, Red Desert, etc.? Just a thought. Also, where exactly are Diamond Mountain and Swinging Bridge? I need to get a better map. :)

Hey Perry,
I've been doing some research and found a blurb about an area around South Pass City that might make for a good camp, day-hiking stop. Do you have any more specific destinations along the route? It would be helpful to "connect the dots". :)

Honeycomb Buttes

Location and Access

These areas lie adjacent to the Oregon Buttes and The Big Empty study areas, separated only by dirt roads. The Honeycomb Buttes is the center point for the Red Desert wilderness area, with the Harris Slough adjoining the north end, both lying 12 miles south of South Pass City. Harris Slough is located directly northeast of the Honeycomb Buttes WSA and 2 miles southwest of the Sweetwater Canyon WSA. The northeast corner of the area abuts part of the Nature Conservancy's Sweetwater River Preserve along Buffalo Gulch.

Access to the Honeycomb Buttes is from the "Lander Road" on the northeast side or several jeep trails in the south. The Harris Slough area is easily accessed via the Buffalo Gulch Road in the Antelope Hills from the northwest or several jeep roads in the southern portion.


Highlights

The spectacular Honeycomb Buttes is a vast maze of rainbow‑colored badlands surrounding Continental Peak. The BLM considers this area "one of the best examples of multi-colored badlands topography in Wyoming". Eroded soils from the Green River Formation have been carved into grottos, caves, and twisted passages making a landscape like no other on Earth. Flats of greasewood and sagebrush, and bare areas of sheet erosion form the outwashes of the badlands.

The Honeycombs' breathtaking scenery and great remoteness give visitors an adventure that is wild beyond imagination. Those who explore the badlands can scramble over the eroded hills of the Harris Slough area, squirm through mud caves and tubes, and gaze out over the Great Divide Basin from atop Continental Peak‑‑elevation 8,431 feet in the Honeycomb Buttes.

Fossilized alligator bones and turtle shells, agates, petrified wood, and translucent lenses of gypsum are scattered over the hills as if strewn by the hand of the Creator.

I have always collaborated with Perry on the Outlaws routes (though usually the deviations from his planning have been minor) and so I think we can safely say this input is great!

Honeycomb Buttes and South Pass City have always been in the itinerary. See the GPS coordinates I posted on the confirmation thread. They are from the Pass Patrol Book (you can buy at www.outbackusa.com - I just did) and is the backbone of our trip. So, we start with a rough plan and then go on an adventure! Your research is great!

Perry still "leads" - so we can blame him if we get "lost" and credit him with the cool finds. I'll have my GPS and laptop with mapping software.

But if the camping in the NP looked good, I might opt for that too.Looks like when they shut the water off for the season (Sept), every site is free and single sites are FCFS - no reservations required. I have never paid for a camp site in my life and wasn't planning to start on this trip, but camping in a group and sharing a meal or two would be good. The park is a lot bigger than I thought it was and the interactive online map is hard to read on my little netbook. I'm gonna need a paper map!:D

We'll come up with some GPS coordinates!

I'm thinking a pre-trip gathering in the next week or next weekend would be a good time. Its good to have some features as goals. I'm sure we'll deviate from the goals a lot, but we already know we want to start and end at the Outlaws hideouts. Along the way we'll wonder what it will have been like for the Outlaws to travel these routes with rustled cattle and Lawmen on their heels.

We are really embarking on a great adventure. I have highlighted the Outlaws Trail route in the WY Atlas, but from experience with Colorado and Utah Atlases, I know some roads won't be there, some will, and others not mapped will be.

Perry - we also should visit the USGS map store in Lakewood, get some BLM maps (at $10 each we can't get them all) and get the travel regulations.

It will also be good to share responsibilities and equipment as best we can. We don't all need to bring everything. For example, its always a pain for me to figure out where to stow my hi-lift. And with all of us together, I probably can leave mine at home. Do we all need our own stoves? Does everyone have a HAM radio? Do we all need to bring rain tarps? Do we all need to bring a full oil change? How many 80 birfields will we need?

Yeah, i'd totaly be game for camping in the dunes, they look really:cool: And 25 visitors per year? Awesome!

Bruce, the visitor center I was thinking about was located of Highway 40, close to the Utah/Colorado line and close to the town of Dinosaur. It's labled as the HQ/Visitor Center on the Benchmark Maps.


Daniel, I agree with a pre-trip get together. Good to talk over everthing, plus there is a chanc that Kurt might not make it till Tuesday. So we need to have at least a basic game plan till that day. As for the rest of the week, i'm open and am glad you guys are excited about the run. It is going to be a great adventure:cool: What about getting together sunday? I can run down and reserve some space at the Wynkoop if that works for everybody??

Daniel, my schedual is open until Saturday and the 40's only run.

I also like this idea of sharing responsibilities. Be a good thing to talk about over some:beer: before the run;)

But yeah, i'm really excited for this years run.

Check list:

Kooziez on order: Check (200 for a buck aint a bad deal!)
Posters Printed: Work on those next week
Maint and Upgrades to the 4runner: Proffitt's are working on it:cool:
Black Butte Mine Company: Waiting for them to call back, word has it they have a overland stage stop on there property. Location: Point Rocks, Wyoming.

I'm available next Sunday for pre-run planning/drinking.;):beer:
Sharing the load of common supplies is a great idea. The less we have to carry individually, the more fun we will all have. I'll be making a mental list over this week of what I can contribute.

Black Butte Mine Company: Waiting for them to call back, word has it they have a overland stage stop on there property. Location: Point Rocks, Wyoming.

"Point of Rocks is a census-designated place (CDP) in Sweetwater County, Wyoming, United States. As of the 2000 census, the CDP had a total population of three." Three!

I'm available Sunday. A big table in one of the Wynkoop side rooms would be good.

Parking is usually pretty easy. There are 2 hour metered spots all over.

There is a 1:10 Rockies Home game. Broncos are in Oakland (2:15 MST Kickoff) - Crush the Raiders! So, we should stay away from a sports bar for geeky map talk.

Meters are still usually easy during home games because they are not long enough to park at a meter for a game. My Brother's Bar is another option with better parking and walkable for Perry.
If we met at the REI Starbucks we could get a table, park easy and Perry can still walk over.

How about 2PM so we don't fight game traffic?

So what works for everybody? Starbucks @ REI mega store in Down Town or My Brothers Bar?

Either is not far for me, but just want to get others on board:cheers:

Took less time to get here than I thought. I have failed at securing a table with shade but I have assumed my vulture posture. Look for the guy in the orange hoodie and black leather vest.
Edit: shade and four chairs secured.

Cant remember if I made this note or not:

It'll be hunting season when were out lost in Wyoming. Best to play things safe; during the run, dont wear furry jackets with targets on them, nor antlers. And it might be a good call to put those jeans with wite bottoms away till spring...

Hi Bill, Martin here. We met in Ridgeway this summer. I'm the FS Ranger who was driving the red FJ60. Glad to see you found the Rising Sun site. :thumb: Have a great trip to Moab and we'll definitely post a trip report for the Outlaw Run. It would be great if our clubs could do a joint run sometime.

Just looked at the extended weather forecast for Rock Springs and Kaycee Wyoming. Looks like sub-freezing temps every night with some snow mixed in. (our :beer: will stay nice and cold) :D

Pack your winter gear, it's going to be an adventure. I'm kicking around the idea of driving the 60 (:snail:) so that I'll have the RTT and plenty of room to haul gear, firewood, etc.
