My axles are vented up to about gas filler height (the front is higher, but the back is up under the filler tube). I don't have tranny and transfer extensions and no snorkel anyway, so my max height is really about floor boards high.

Speaking about food, I was planning on the dutch oven and 3-burner Coleman stove. I'll have along a cast iron griddle that fits the outfitter stove. This will be available as common cookware. Art Hog got the benefit of an outfitting trial run with this camp kitchen on the White Rim and he lived, so we've got that going for us.

Anyone else procrastinate on this mod?

Ken, do you have a link for that video? Still talking the wife into it and that might help.

We will be at the same lake. If someone wanted to start communication with them I'm sure it would be a kick in the tail! By going in third we won't have another group pushing so we can enjoy a laid back pace a bit more! There will still be folks and other outlaws groups coming in behind us but we will be the last large group in on Wednesday morning with the exception of Mudracks Double Locker Run which usually starts around noon. We will also be some of the first groups to get into the Springs so we will have some great camping spots to choose from!

I can contact Andy. He said he is coming to Moab this year as well. I have already been talking to him and he was nervous about us having our own group and felt better when I told him Robbie will be with us. Guess I was wrong. I know Dave has run this trail many times so we should be fine.

Here is what he PM'd me

You need to turn hard left on the trail that bypasses that section, but you don't know that unless you've been there before. Otherwise it will take hours to run a group through 100 feet of trail. That's just one example of about 10.

Between Dave, Kim and I, I really don't foresee any problems to be honest! That would be awesome if you could chat with Andy and get camping at Buck Island organized! I suspect with only 10 rigs we will get some more assigned so there will probably be more non-virgins along as well! If you feel more comfortable in a different group don't hesitate! Just please let us know so we can plan accordingly!

So if someone were thinking about flying out to Tahoe to join the RS group and then flying back because he didn't have enough vacation to join the awsome road trip, where would you fly to and how much time would you add to be able to get to and from the airport? - just thinkin

Tony said we'd probably get more requests to wheel with us than we would be comfortable accepting. He said "everyone is going to want to wheel with Rising Sun." He may be overestimating our popularity, but now that Romer is going, maybe not. He's our superstar. At Flat Nasty, everyone knew him.
