Re: Get Together Around Vegas/Southern Utah in September 2010?

Mac, you thew me with that Monday and Wednesday stuff. Had to get my calender to see what you were talking about. I thought I was doing well just keeping track of the days (numbers) let alone day of the week.

Christopher Thwaites and I are meeting up on the 19th (Sunday) to head to Toroweap. I don't know when Steve is coming, but I expect him 19/20.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Mike

I will be coming in on Monday. I have church responsibilities on Sunday so cannot get away. I think you guys will be there until Wednesday so that's when I will head out.

Re: Get Together Around Vegas/Southern Utah in September 2010?

Mac, Mike, all,
I will be staying in Zion on Sunday night for one night and plan to head to Toroweap on Monday. Not sure the time yet.

Mike how much time should I allow from Zion Campground to Toroweap?

Mac, I am playing it by ear so not sure of the time I will leave Zion on Monday, but if you want to caravan let me know. I can meet up with you somewhere along the way. I have 4WD, tow ropes, winch, hi-lift, Margaritas, etc. so you are welcome to follow me.

Re: Get Together Around Vegas/Southern Utah in September 2010?

Steve:

I could meet you in Hildale/Colorado City at or after 10:00 am (I lose an hour coming out of Vegas) on Monday, September 20th. I believe there is a gas station there right on Hwy 59/389. I could meet you there. Whoever gets there first could park so we can't miss each other.

Thanks for the offer.

Mac

Steve,

It's 60 miles of dirt road, 20-30 mph, so 2-3 hours plus about an hour from Zion to the turnoff = 3-4 hours. Your results may vary, but that is what I'm planning on.

Mike

Re: Get Together Around Vegas/Southern Utah in September 2010?

Hey all, our plans may fluctuate a bit, due to family members affected by the wildfires around here and staying with us. Still planning on heading out, but rendezvous point may change. Can we pick a cb channel to use for meetups, even with limited range, might be useful while trying to locate others.

Steve- might end up joining you at Zion on sun and drive down with you guys on mon. to toroweap.

Re: Get Together Around Vegas/Southern Utah in September 2010?

Thanks Mike.

Mac and Ref, sounds good to meet up and caravan in. I would like to leave Zion on Monday around noon or 1pm so that I have time to see a couple things there. Lets figure this out over the weekend or next week, as I am out of town right now.

For CB how about Channel 16?

Any of you guys hams? I will be monitoring on 2meters, 146.520.

steve

Re: Get Together Around Vegas/Southern Utah in September 2010?

In about an hour I will be on the road. Passing through Yosemite, stopping in the Eastern Sierra's and Death Valley for a couple of nights on my way to Zion, Toroweap and the North Rim.

See you there,

Mike

Re: Get Together Around Vegas/Southern Utah in September 2010?

Dave,

I think I saw two flakes. It was cold enough (24) but no snow and no crowds either.

A couple nights in Death Valley (Mahogany Flats - alone, no other campers or visitors) and hiked up to Telescope Peak again - 15miles round trip.

Mike
