Those are a great group of guys and they really know the trail. That would be awesome. I did send Andy a PM that I told him wrong about Robbie though.

Do we have a count as to how may woman are planning on going? Also how many of you are planning on taking a dog or two, the four legged kind. We are working logistics and cost right now, getting closer.

Thats why WE need to work on it!

We need to know who the passengers are

whos in the convoy and are we all taking the same route
where will will we stay the first night
etc.....

I am happy to do a lot but I work too!

I'm not thrilled about a huge group but those guys are cool and it would be awesome to camp at both BI and RS with them. I'm up for what WE as a group decide. I know the trail pretty good and I'm not scared to wheel my truck. Dave and Kim know the trail very well and are not afraid to wheel their trucks. I can not answer "what if" questions regarding if the trail will be too tough for all! "What if" we go do what we do well and have some fun!

Honestly, though, Robbie brings up a great point about group dynamics. Traveling as a club is more fun if we're sitting around each day sharing pancakes instead of 15 groups eating instant oatmeal.

I'm up for sharing duties and resources. We always have a week campout around the 4th of July and each year we bring less hardware and more food and booze. I made a seafood etoufe that was gone by nights end, all the other food was just as good if not better, Same rules apply when you go to Lake Powell.

We could plan part of it during CM08

I can help too, if people want to email the info I will put in some type of form so we can break i down and see the who what where and why.

I will put together a list of questions I would ask myself and then pass it on, if it passes the mustard we can post it and have people fill in the blanks.

What do you think Kevin? You want me to put it together?

I think what we need is maybe a committee forum and a mini meeting to get organized so we don't fly off wildly in different directions!

UB,

I'm working on it but if I do manage to go it will be as a passenger. I'm 50/50 right now but I sooooo don't want to miss this. Flying in is sort of appealing due to the vacation time contraints but not sure about the logistics of that nor how I'd feel getting to enjoy in the fun without having to do much of the work

Tom, you can also go to youtube and just do a search on Rubicon and Rubithon. Found quite a few "interesting" videos that way
