After giving it some more thought, I'm not going to make it. Count me out.

EDIT:
I wasn't going to take my truck anyway from the get-go. I don't meet the minimum requirements and didn't want to risk driving that far with the potential damage that could be incurred due to lack of experience, lack of tire size, lockers, body armor, rear recovery point, not to mention being weighed down with camping gear etc. that I don't have an effective way to store.

So since I wasn't taking my truck I had to weigh the benefits of me going with someone else. Basically I saw a lot of $$ in registration, lodging, and fuel splitting, money that I'd prefer to use to pay off my credit card for good and start working toward other long-term goals. Plus my priorities are changing a lot right now, Cruise Moab taught me that and even though it was a blast and I had a great time it also gave me time to think about what I was doing and why I was there and I concluded that Cruise Moab was acceptable given the circumstances but Rubithon is not. It's very likely that Cruise Moab next year may not be acceptable, we'll see; at the moment I don't plan on going.

I don't understand this comment. We're leaving Denver on the Monday before the event, not on Sunday. We'll be driving all day on Monday & Tuesday. Our entry to the trail will be on Wednesday.

If you're planning on going the back way on Tuesday, that will be a full day before we are on the trail.

If you're talking about the following Sunday, that's the day everyone will be leaving.

Rachel and I are excited about going. There is one thing that may prevent me from going.

For 6 months I have been working my way through a series of people and milestones to brief a specific Admiral. I am told this may occur in mid June. This is not something I can delegate and we have a lot riding on the outcome of this meeting.

Probably more than I needed to say, but my luck is these meetings always happen when I don't want then to like the one that just popped up on top of the June meeting.

I am at the conveinace of his office when it is scheduled and when they notify me.

That's understandable. Here's hoping he wants to see you in very early June!

I was trying to line Barry Reuter up to haul a few of us out there, but I can't get a call back from him. I'd still love to share fuel costs with someone.
