Sounds good, Perry. Our trucks probably cruise at about the same speed.

303 803 4848

kd0fds monitoring 146.460 whenever I'm in the truck. I'll also try to stay on the colorado connection repeaters.

Default How To Get To Area Bfe?

From Moab:

Go South on Hwy 191 Approx 13 miles. Just after the uphill passing lane comes to an end, take the first left (this comes quickly, be prepared). Follow the maintained dirt road and signs for about 3 miles to the cleared parking area on the left. http://www.areabfe.com/location/

After you turn in under the AREA BFE sign, veer "driver" a bit to find the ramp that leads down to the valley where Cruise Moab was centered last year. You should be able to see some Toyotas or fires by then. I imagine we'll be camped either in the valley or on the ridge to the east of the first valley.

Approximate GPS coordinates to Area BFE gate:
N38 24.1999' W109 24.5073'

Is there an overall plan? Who is going? What trails?

The overall plan: Hmm: Arrive at Area BFE.

0800 Friday morning head out from Area BFE to teach/learn trails in small groups to maximize coverage. Most groups will probably be able to cover 1 to 2 trails over the day.

Encourage folks to record on GPS, paper, or at least mentally note the line up area, plans on good places to stop for lunch, how to tell if you are on schedule. Example: "On Golden spike, you should be stopping for lunch around 12:30 at the overlook. You should be to the golden crack by 3:00." Take note of any "bail out" routes for breakdowns or emergencies.

Relax and reconvene for dinner or post dinner around the campfire to discuss issues related to being a trail leader/gunner.
1: Discuss past trail leader challenges and concerns and share ideas on how to overcome the challenges and concerns.
2: Discuss universal spotting hand signals.

Saturday:

Go run more trails in small groups! Trail runs north of town may need to be on the far side of the colorado bridge before 0800 to avoid the runners. The runners will go North out of town, then turn right and go upstream along the Colorado River. I don't think we're planning on running any trails upstream this year so that might not be an issue.

Repeat the relax and discuss campfire meeting. Sunday morning, I would like to hit some of the optional trails we are going to use for rain-out trails and potential trails for 2012. these trails are all easy and NE of Moab. This is "on the way home." for most of the rising sun members.

That's about all I have planned so far. I am certainly open to additional ideas. I don't know exactly which trails. I'll have a much better idea of whom I would like to see on which trails after Tuesday of next week. Basically all of the trails near moab that we usually run, plus 7 mile rim and maybe the rain-out trails like top of the world.

This is also a great chance for the volunteers to run some trails in "fun sized" groups instead of the lengthy wagontrains they will be guiding during Cruise Moab.

think of it as "old time hockey; right coach?" style trail running.

Can't leave before 3 PM Thursday. Maybe I can tag with one of you guys. Daniel, can you make it out closer to 4PM? Maybe the 80's should hang together (my wife is allowing me to use her 80 for this trip) and let those mini guys to themselves?

I'm flexible and always prefer company on the drive.

I spent some time today cleaning up the garage and getting the camping gear ready (since I am away next weekend).

This trip will be the debut of a new addition to my rig (actually two since I have new tires too) that has never before been seen in the 80 community.....

Plan sounds good too.

I'm always down for some trails on the way home Sunday.
