I admit I have asked some questions that may have been answered in another forum and or post. The reason I do that that is simple, I do not know all the people that post up an answer be it here or on Mud or ???
When I need to know something that the answer has to be correct or my decision depends on the information I get I want it to be from somebody I know and trust. You Kevin, are somebody I trust! If you tell me that I need to bring 20 gallons of fuel with me or otherwise I run out I would do so. You have been there before, you know what to expect within reason. As for the other people who have posted answers, most if not all I trust but there are some people who as they say only "Web Wheel" I don't always know who these people are so I ask somebody I know.
As far as getting together in person or online it really does not matter. I just thought since most people enjoy talking to everyone, N.S.B.C/S.S.D.C, that they would enjoy meeting for this too, with a semi real purpose even.
If we can continue the list you started online by meeting in person over a beer and finish it then or online again that would be great. If we can't and only a few show up then we continue online.
Doing a pre-run is a good idea, I know we are going to Moab this weekend and I will be trying some packing methods. A whole lot of stuff needs to go into a tiny little truck.
