I think we are leaving the night of the 11th. Headed to Navajo Lake, just north of Zion and to the west of Bryce. Will not even slow down for Moab. Plan to hit Ouary on the morning of the 15th, and check into the KOA at noon.

We will be going slower than the rest of you I am sure. Got to conserve fuel when you get 9 at best case scenario. I hoping diesel does not get much higher, but the princess has to have her castle.

I would not mind rolling out the 11th.

I know you (skersan) have great knowledge of the area.

The wife and I are looking to find some remote areas. We have the whole week off, and are in no rush to get to Ouary.

We are at the Riverside Inn of Ouray. With reservation July 16th, for four days.

I have all week off and was planning on taking off Fri or Sat. sometime.
We want to do some camping and check out some parks on the way up to Ouary. Maybe do some hiking?

You interested? Maybe for part of it?

I have no knowlegde of the area and have no specific plans of yet. Possible stops in Zion, Bryce, Moab? I am open to anything.

If interested PM me.

We are leaving the night of the 11th. Will most likely drive to St George and spend the night, drive up to Navajo Lake on the moring of the 12th. Spend the night there for sure. It is at 10,000 feet and truly beautiful. May end up spending two night there. I am not into Moab so I will most likely pass it up. Will do some mountain biking at Navajo Lake, and there are beautiful hiking trails there also. Anyone wanting to meet up is welcome. I will have the big trailer so if cold is a problem, there will be room. We have had it snow on us there that time of year. We will be stopping there on the way home too.

I may meet up you at Lake Navajo. I wish we could bring the mountain bikes.
I will be mapping everything out this week and planning out the trip to Ouray.

Maybe changing our plans. May just drive straight to Ouray arriving on Saturday night and do some of the trails close to Crested Butte. Then stop at Navajo Lake on the way home. I will have to confirm reservations at KOA for the early arrival.

Plans have officially changed. We will arrive on Saturday. I have been asked to be trail leader for three runs, so I want to get there and do them prior. We will be in 102 from the 12th to the 15th then move to 95 for the remainder.

Congrats Trailer Leader,

Well, the wife and I will spend more time In Zion National Park and get to Ouray a little earlier in the week.

The wife was hoping to spend time with your wife @ Lake Navajo, she thought very highly of you guys.
We will see you at Ouray.

I am a Tail Gunner on two runs.
