Couple of ideas:

For the first year it might be good to go on the shorter side and do a 3 days of competition and 1 day of prologue. This way it costs a little less to put on and gives you a chance to see how all the pieces go. Between organizing course marshals, controls, medical crews etc I imagine its a handful for the first time. It would be great to see a full 7 day event in North America come from this.

The Australian Safari had several different bivouac locations during the week but some were used for a couple of days in a row. There is another event in Australia called the Condo 750 and it is 2 days long and very navigation intensive. They have 2 loops and its setup so on day 1 the bikes and quads head out on loop #1 while the trucks and buggies go out on Loop #2. The next day they switch loops. This eliminates the dangers of bikes and trucks mixing things up.
