If I can get some things fixed on the truck I'll hit you up. Might be able to join you for camping and Sunday run. I'll be going over Hagerman pass to meet you.

The water crossings are still running pretty strong on Halfmoon! you should have a great time! The gate was locked, however to get to the mill. Hopefully it will be open for your trip.

We're planning on running it again next Friday.

Had a great time with some fun water crossings and good camping! Gate was still closed for the Champion mine but it made for a good short hike.
