Maybe we should each pitch in $30 and buy 2 of them. That's probably more than we'd need to make sure everyone had plenty of time on the crapper, right?
I would be interested in doing that, who would carrry them? We could make them the RS break room

I sounds like we have some people that are going on the trip that have a set up like this already. if they are willing to share the hardware we can bring our own software and keep that in our rigs.

I really do not see the use in bringing and or buying more things if we don't have to. I know it may be a little to soon but I feel we should get the Rubicon people together and see what everyone has to contribute to the trip. If we are missing items i.e. toilet we can than either do a group purchase or one or two people can buy it and bring it.

I for one do not have a shower, toilet or camping table. I do have a big shelter, multiple stoves, coffee maker, generator and soon a 1200 watt inverter and some other stuff. If anyone needs to use these items for a while they are more than welcome. This way we do not bring 15 stoves and 12 shelters etc.

I will start another tread asking people if they want to meet up some time to put together a supply list. I personally would prefer to do it sooner than later, this last Moab trip showed me that packing is going to be a big, big challenge.

Any thoughts on this and sorry for the ramble.

Not to contribute to thread drift, but I agree with you. The main Rubithon thread talked about it, group cooking, shared resources, etc. We definitely need to have a Rubithon meeting sometime to hash it out.

The Bumper Dumper is fun. (trailer hitch toliet seat)

We used to put it on the back of a friend's truck the night before heading out to a race. We used a LOCKING hitch pin so they had to drive all the way to the race with the bumper dumper locked to the back of their truck. Hard to look cool on the highway with a toilet stuck to the back of your truck.

I guess I can start one, somebody will have to. Maybe we can make it a sticky in the Trip section.

If we decide to chip in on another one of these I'm willing to do that.. agreed it's a waste for all of us to be hauling a complete "system." It can then become the club's property, to be used by the club each summer as we expedition out to the next TLCA event.

You guys realize the collective plan is we do Moab + one other TLCA event every year, right? Just wanted to be sure you knew what you were a part of..

But I'm good either way on this.. give me another couple weeks to finish moving and I'll be a little more interested in official Rubithon planning.
