i'm not sure yet, did we set dates? I'm in utah and then Death Valley for two weeks in April which may preclude another trip in May...

Yep, starting on April 26th in the Maze (See post #36 for a summary). I hope you can join us! We'll be moving over to the White Rim Road after a week and folks could join up there, too. (Jhop) We have permits for 6 vehicles, so there is room yet. :)

I'm still working on it (about 80-90% sure I can make it). Should know for sure in a week or so.

Good deal! I hope you can.

Post for tomorrow:
I'll be checking on current back-country road conditions with the Ranger station tomorrow - I hear the weather has made them more interesting. :)

Sounds like the Flint Trail is blocked with ice and boulders at the moment. The Rangers expect to get a machine in there in 2-3 weeks to clear it after the ice melts. They use that road occasionally for access, so they'll open it back up when they can... There is still access from Hite to the Maze anyhow.

Some pics from last year, Dollhouse campsite and Teapot Canyon road: Moabpic1.jpeg P1000491.jpeg
The road is straight ahead on the ledge on the other side of the canyon, going left to right after a hairpin turn out of sight to the left P1000496.jpeg P1000537.jpeg

I am trapped in the state Capitol until 5/6. Would love to join if people are still there then.

Heck! We'll be on the White Rim Trail May 5th and 6th, maybe still the 7th and leave the 8th.
edit: We'll be on the White Rim though the 8th and leave the 9th...

Any luck, Spieg? 4 spots left if anybody else wants to go. Starting to pile up gear for next month's adventure. And doing some wrenching - changed the trans (was getting hot on the highway) and transfer case (twin-sticks!) today...

If I go that far I will also go to NJ and "pay a visit" to that JJ character for letting my GW go.
I've got a 35 foot camper with central AC and no dingos ready for ya. Stay as long as you want. Beer and food will be provided. :cheers:

Well, the good news is I can get the time off work. :bacon:

Bad news is I found out that CNP has changed their policy since I was last there. They no loner allow pets in the back country, so I couldn't bring my dog. :eek:

Guess I'll probably be wheeling/camping on some of the BLM land in the area. Maybe we can still meet up for a beer in Moab?
