Default Run Schedule

I was checking out my tent today. I think it will do just fine.

Dumb question. The event is 4 days and we start on the first one and come out on the last. Do we set up camp somewhere and stay put for a day or two or do we move every day?

I'm fairly certain we set up and hang there for three nights. We go in Wednesday, camp somewhere along the trail (Buck Island?), get to Rubicon Springs the next day then set up camp for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night. Do you have your March/April 2006 Toyota Trails handy? nice article in there from the Norcal guys.

You are correct Sir Nak! We will also have the benefit for being one of the first groups into the Springs so we can lay claim on a great site for the whole group and create RS City. Be sure to bring entertainment as we will have lots of "play" time!

that fancy inverter of yours will power a soldering iron, right? Anyone want to do their recliner hinges?

So, we just "hang" and catch rays for three days? Sweet. I can work on my tan. (Where do you get a decent power inverter again? Hmmm, Margaritas in the blender...)

I had a long dinner on Saturday night in Moab sitting next to Bob Brown. He mentioned that the camping up the trail is pretty awesome, and suggested we might want to camp along the trail on Thursday night too, and then roll into Rubicon Springs Friday morning. Just a thought -- I'll go where ever the group goes.

RV/Camper places. The cheapo ones you get everywhere are not what they claim! Modified sine wave is good....sine wave is better!

They have a nice blender set up at Costco for $48.99 Can be run 12V or 110. Wanted to get it but got shot down.

I thought we were camping in different spots each night. If I understand this correctly we camp in spot one the first night, Wednesday night, and then move onto the next spot, Thursday-Saturday night, and drive out Sunday. If this is the case I may change up my thoughts on the RTT. If we are indeed camping in one area i can bring our big tent and leave it set up.

Please let me know because I am about to cut up a really nice ladder rack that I may just sell now instead and use the cash for other things.

Tom you got it right, that's my understanding as well. We're going to do the big tent thing as well, which is nice when you can leave it set up for a couple days. But if we decide to camp somewhere on the trail on Thursday night I'll just roll with it, either way I'm wheeling & camping with my friends so there really is no downside.

Hey Chris, if you want to do the air-powered blender instead I can easily power that- I've been chasing leaks and am down under 10psi/hour in pressure loss now, with about 6 gallons of storage. In fact, maybe Green Machine would loan us his.. I'm not much into blender drinks personally, lately it's just cold beer in a can and the whiskey neat... but I'm sure I could find a way to enjoy a frozen marg if one made its way into my hand
