So I guess I played a little hard in Moab this weekend and need to get some wrenching done before we head out for this trip! (Nothing scary just time consuming... )

Do we have an idea of where we are going to meet Saturday morning and time?

Can we get away with 9:00 or a little later...

I can't leave SLC until after work Friday and after bumper cars getting through Utah County last week, I don't expect to get to GJ until LATE Friday night. :D

How many rigs do we have coming? This is going to be Great!
I'll probably be in the same boat. If the wife comes we wont be leaving until early afternoon. I was going to tent camp, but ended up booking the Super 8 in Friuta just incase we get in later.

We are staying at the off Horizon, it is about half away between the two trails...

I will be watching for you buggy as we go. :D Hoping to be rolling by 5:30 or 6:00 from Draper...

Let's meet at the Loco Truck Stop in Fruita... I think 9 AM would be fine. Here's the meeting point, it's easy to find. - https://goo.gl/maps/PUg5kW8WkHm

It's a big gas station / truck stop, so we can fill tanks, get snacks/drinks, etc. There is a Starvin' Arvins if anyone wants a big breakfast before we meet up, as well as a Quiznos WHICH I'LL GET FOR EVERYONE(may not be open that early though).

I'd like to be at the 21 Road unloading area by 9:30 AM, if anyone wants to just meet there. - https://goo.gl/maps/gGW9p4ZgMXu
Did Greg say hes getting Quiznos for everyone???

Happy to have you guys! 21 Road is close to Fruita, but Billings Canyon is on the other side/end of the Valley. You could split the difference and stay at one of the hotels off Horizon Drive. Fruita is a nicer place to stay, IMO.




Awesome, John! It'll be nice to see you on the trail.
It looks like Sunday only for me

Roll call!

We are three days away! I am really looking forward to this trip.

If everything finishes up in decent shape with tonight’s wrenching, my family will be there two rigs. Orange CJ7 Yellow CJ8. Bunch of munchkins...:D

Who else? I heard the MFFW guys might becoming.

What's the concensus on trail start time sunday? I'll be in fruita, 2 miles from 21 rd if anyone needs to follow me to billings if you've never been.
I was thinking 9 AM and meeting at the Safeway on Broadway. - https://goo.gl/maps/yfGLozu2SbP2

If anyone plans to meet at the trailhead instead, just let me know so we're not waiting! There are now 2 parking areas to unload from, the upper one at the end of the trail and a new lower one that's closer to the start.

As of right now, it looks like we'll have 6 rigs from MFFW. Me and my wife Susan in our sammy buggies, Melissa in her jeep buggy, Larry in his Toyota, Scott in his jeep buggy, and Ron in his jeep buggy from Montrose. Not sure if we'll stop by the truck stop or go straight to the trail, so don't wait for us at the truck stop if we're not there by 9:00.

Sounds good Jeff, thanks for the info!
