Canyonlands ADV Ride ~ B-Team

Unfortunately, I've had a family obligation arise so this ride is cancelled.

Nice job Scott, you'll have to let us know how the conditions are. Have fun, let me know if you need anything.

Since Ben's Dubinky ride filled up so quickly, I got the tracks from him and am planning to do the route the weekend prior to the A-Team's ride. This ride will be self supported, unorganized, slow and we'll probably get lost, but if you wanted to do the Dubinky ride but didn't make the cut - and you have the fuel range - join the B-Team.

Scott looks like a fun ride, but Unfortunately I work that weekend. Its a crapshoot with me. I have every other weekend off. Are you going to be camping or moteling it?

No set plans but I'd like to get out there once prior to the ride and scope out elephant hill and Bobby's with the bike unloaded and just have some desert fun. End of April is too long to wait to get out there as I'm already chomping at the bit. How about the last weekend of March? Jim? Adam?

Last weekend in March works for me.

Am also checking on a few things, but I'm tentatively planning on camping at your support stop. I can schlep gas, water, whatever to help out. These busted bones don't sleep on the ground so good! If that appeals to anyone else, I'll be doing day rides from camp. I'll let you know as soon as my plans are firm.

I'm still planning on this ride, so count me in as one of the 6!

I have 2 bikes that will do the job, a WR450 (with a 6 gallon tank in the garage) and a KTM 690 Enduro. I want to try this ride with the WR, I think it will be more fun.

If you guy need help with the recon ride, let me know... I'd be game for that too.

Pat - Is this offer for for the end of March or the actual ride date? For the end of this month, I was thinking we'd camp down south and do a couple day rides. If you're offering to help out for the actual ride, this would definitely change the logistics some. And be muy appreciated.

My offer is to support your actual ride in April. I'm happy to help. I'll know for sure in the next couple days.
