CM comittiee will be running fuel out to Onion Creek camp ground where we will be staying wed night. The will be bring out 5 gallon can based on talking to them on Wed morning. The first part of the trip uses less fuel, and the second part of the trip required more fuel.
I still had some fuel at the end of the trip, but I have the capacity to carry 65 gallons if I fill up.
Actually that might have been where Nathan and I got ourselves into trouble. The trail was 150 miles (plus whatever backtracking we did for camping) but I think Nathan and I burned through quite a bit of fuel in both our rides on the way to the trailhead. Close to 100 miles of faster than posted driving to make the tech inspection (we were still a little late). Oops.
