If you left Saturday night you could take a southern route back to Denver and get a little tour of Colorado. I'll be heading out Saturday night/afternoon for Durango. Part of the stipulations of my hall pass.

I think most will cook in camp this year. I will probably be cooking back packing style with a micro stove as I'm running solo this year. Maybe town once if others are planning a brewery run

Make sure you bring plenty of water storage, a gallon per person, per day on the trail. Sunscreen, a sunshade for camp if you have one. Good shoes/boots and a pair of sandals/flops. You'll want good footwear while on the trail. Hat to block the sun. A tent that windows completely close up are good. Wind often picks up during the night. (mini sandstorms). A medium weight jacket or more. Temps can drop at night in the desert more than you'd think. I'd recommend a 10 degree sleeping bag. Or have some long underwear if it gets cold. You will want a good flashlight this year. There will only be natural light at basecamp. No AC power sources. I think its a full moon this year. That should be pretty cool. Camp chair is a must. Be prepared to get sand into anything and everything. But that's OK its part of the fun.

Everyone enjoys interesting and unique adult beverages. That makes you a popular guy around camp.

After all that you might think we are a bunch of boozers. But no. You will not see any consumption on the trails. That is a CM rule. But most of us will enjoy a few around a campfire.
