Sorry for the late notice but if you don't yet have plans for the long weekend, we have a few spots open this Memorial Day Weekend to the Red Desert Wyoming area.

Want a whole lot of spectacular nothing? This is your trip. Some cool historic spots like the Tri-Territory Marker, Point of Rocks, Killpecker Dunes. and the Boar's Tusk.

Thursday PM: Departing Thursday night after 7PM to lay down a few low-traffic highway miles and be able to enjoy full days away Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Sleep somewhere off 80 in WY.
Friday: Drive, get a lot of gas in Rock Springs, WY (if you have an 80, an extra 10 gal would be great), see some stuff, camp in a spot that may just blow your mind. Grill N Chill.
Saturday: Play in a big sandbox, see more cool stuff. Grill N Chill. Maybe see what they are serving in South Pass City
Sunday: See more cool stuff. Grill N Chill.
Monday: The route home comes back down I-25 so no I-70 traffic.

I'm not trying to be vague. I have BLM maps of the area. I have a few spots I have been to before and want to see again. Local conditions and weather will determine some of what we see and do.

No extreme 4 wheeling planned, but ya never know whet we'll encounter. Most important is great attitude, truck in great condition, good tires, and willingness to get lost.

This ARCGIS has me in full geek mode! This looks like it will be a great trip and I may want to emulate it this summer once the 4runner is back up to highway snuff!
