Only one way to find out .... hit the trail.

I have to imagine it won't be an issue on the trails. We may have a few short steep climbs, and we will be at some high elevations, but no extremely technical trail surfaces.

We will have some sections of highway at which we'd hopefully have regular highway cruising speeds of 65-75. No speed contests but if someone needs to cruise at 55mph then a 600 mile trip to SLC may be pushing it in a week. The biggest highway day will be a 250 mile Thursday after a portion of the Kokopelli trail. We will go from near Westwater, UT to near the Little Sahara Recreation Area. Mostly flat, only a few climbs. No hurry and if someone really wanted to go fast or slow we can find ways to let people travel the pavement at their own paces. On the trail we must be a team. Feel free to PM or e-mail me to discuss.

This is getting more and more fun! I'm excited to have such a big crew!

Dan can't wait to see your lights again and hear stories of Palestine and Israel first hand!

This is what I'm driving out this year!

Four days out. Is the truck ready? What work must get done before I go? What can wait?

Probably common thoughts to the 8 of us meeting 8:00 AM Monday for the 5 day tour to Cruiserfest.

Its all going to work out fine. Time to start thinking of wide open spaces, mountain tops and desert canyons, camp coffee and campfires.

That is a sweet fleet of 'Cruisers! I doubt the Brown Bomber would've been able to keep up. Looking good! Super jealous...
