I-70 has you crossing Floyd Hill, prior to turning on I-40 or add Eisenhower and Vail Passes to turn at Rifle Then you climb up over Triangle Park.
I-40 has you crossing Berthoud, Muddy, Rabbit Ears and Strawberry passes.
I was trying to avoid all of the really bad I70 road and the mountain passes. I think I am taking I80.

Be sure to stop by Rays Tavern in Green River Utah. Best Burgers in the state

Paul May has driven 3hours out of his way just to have one......

I have another question Does anyone know where would be a good place to park our borrowed tow vehicle truck and trailer near the end of the Rubicon trail that would be both safe and convenient?

Green River is on I-70. We're talking about driving Hwy 40 up through Dinosaur or I-80 through WY. We won't be hitting Ray's Tavern on this trip.

I don't remember the answers, but I know this was discussed in the other threads in the Rubithon trip planning section, as well as on the Rubithon thread on Mud.

Anyone have an idea what time you're (we're) leaving the Denver area on Monday? Is it 10 hours to Henderson, NV? Or 10 hours to Salt Lake then another 2?

There's a meeting here at work in the morning that I really need to/want to attend.. I could be on the road by 10:00, how far behind would that put me? Was thinking I could skip lunch and drive extra fast to catch up?

My apologies if I am duplicating questions that have already been covered. I have searched through MUD as best I can and through RS forums and have found nothing indicating a good safe place to store a truck and trailer at the end of the Rubicon trail. If anyone has a suggestion I would appreciate it.
