We would like to break it up a little too. Looking at a hike, maybe run some rc crawlers, goodies from Doughbird and buy some stickers, depending on weather.

Ladies driving @Yarn Runner trail leader for one trail at least

Trail possibilities:
Porcupine rim
Poison spider mesa
Flat iron mesa
Dome plateau
Fins, HR?

What say ye?

Sara and I vote as follows:
Porcupine rim: Yes
Poison Spider: We could take it or leave it. Good trail.
Flat Iron Mesa: Yes
Dome Plateau: Yes
Fins, HR: I think Sara should drive Fins.
I also suggest Top of the World. Haven't done it yet.

I don't think we'd do all those trails this trip, it turns into work after a while.
We're showing up for the company, and to drink in some views.

I've been toying with the idea of running Kokopelli from Fruita to HWY 128 on the way in. Just don't know how/if the timing will work out. Any interest in that?
Main problem: I have to work on Wed, so it'd be a drive to Fruita, then start Kokopelli in the afternoon/evening. Shoot for Westwater Wed Afternoon/Evening. Stay a night. Push to 128 Thursday?

Information for my house. Good news who were here last year, no more goat heads thorns. The back yard has been recently rocked, and some have not been compacted down, so people in tents will want to sleep on air mattresses. As usual, the house is open 24 hours a day, with 3 bathrooms and showers (bring what you need for showers), kitchen open. I have a coffee pot but do not drink coffee, so bring your own coffee. Any significant others not sure about camping, there are 3 bedrooms available for use in the house. I still have alot of firewood, please do not bring any more. Chairs to sit around the fire pit. One planned group meal??

Also directions. I am 7 miles south of town, just past the arena and the large condo development. Turn left off the highway on Stocks drive and then 1st left on Beeman road. I'm on the left. 4230 Beeman Road. Drive to the back, and set up camp anywhere. Anyone with a camper, I have 30amp service (2), water and a dump.

You are the best! We were thinking of a group dinner, possibly from Blu Pig but haven't checked pricing yet. Won't be as good as the KC BBQ but not bad either, IMO. I was planning on doing this under your nose to surprise you to say thank you for your hospitality but the cat is out of the bag now. 😀

Have you ever done Kokopelli? You might want to budget about 3 hours for that section and try to at least get past Western Rim with daylight, that section's fairly beat up now by all the SxSs and ATVs so you want to do it with some daylight or alternatively be able to see and not miss the bypass (I always use the bypass now FWIW). Figure sunset will be about 6:30 around then.

Thanks for the heads up, haven't done that section of Kokopelli. The sections I have run have always been on the way out of Moab up to Coal Draw/Harley Dome Rd.
Doesn't look like time is going to be on our side for this one, and running solo isn't ideal. We'll just have to sign up for it at CM2022.

Thanks for hosting Brian!

I’m already out there for a week with a few Jeep buddies. We’re heading that way on the 14th around 10am. Certainly wave and say howdy if our paths cross.
Ill be in the lone silver 80 with 4 jeeps. 😂

Amber and I are looking much more probable. I need to check with work on Monday.

Good to run any trails on that list.

We would also be leaving on Wednesday after work. I'd love to make kokopeli part of this if it made sense logistically.

What time would be all be heading out on Wednesday? Is a convoy making more sense?

Update:
Here's our rough draft of the trip itinerary

Roll out weds late afternoon evening from Denver, meet up and time TBD for caravan, hopefully 4-5pm at the latest, arrive at Brian's late evening
Thursday: poison spider or porcupine rim
Friday: morning hike (TBD), short trail in afternoon (fins 1st half or dome plateau, drive like a girl maybe?)
Saturday: flat iron mesa
Sunday: heading home

Also when time allows; rc crawlers, shopping (desert threads, Doughbird, etc)

I am trying to button down details for group dinner, trying for Blu Pig bbq in town, thinking dinner Friday night. Will post up more info.

Any changes or suggestions?

Anyone coming in early or staying late is fine. Just let me know.

I will be out there. I would probably just do one day of a trail and possibly attend Friday night dinner and bring my wife. Maybe Poision Spider on Thursday if you decide to do it or something else close and in that range on Friday.

Figure I am just tagging along since I will have the Jeep. I will watch the thread and work it out once you all decide.
