Gas up in Hanksville indeed. Have food at Blondies.Guys,
Regarding questions above about fuel and water, we will be away from provisions for a 3 days or so while we are on each trail.
Plan on being fuel/food/water sufficient for the following time blocks:
11/2 mid day until 11/5 mid day. There is gas available at Cal Black airport which is about 20 miles past the trailhead. Our trip from SLC to the start of HiTR will take us through Hanksville, which is 100 miles from trailhead, and is the last place for decent provisions. I am not sure if there is a gas station b/w Hanksville and the trail. Maybe @beno knows?! HiTR trail is 68 miles round trip.
Correct. You go past the trail head. But it's no biggie.If we go through Hanksville and hite to get to the trail start we would then drive past the trail to go to Hall's Crossing, correct? The ferry is closed at that time of year otherwise I would've recommended we come in from the west and take a little ferry ride across.
Fantastic. I second the motion.One thing not mentioned at the meeting was using the “Ledger” system on expenses. I introduced it last year in Colorado and I think everyone thought it was great. It simplifies group expenses very easily. Every night if you make a group expense purchase, turn it in at dinner and we balance the ledger. Every person has a position on the ledger either cash positive or cash negative. People who are the most negative pick up the next community expense. At the end of the trip there is one last settlement and payout that zero’s out the ledger. Takes all the hassle out of sharing expenses.
One other suggestion I have is that we do group dinners and pair up in two’s for preparation and clean up. The nights we do group dinners 2 guys cook, and another two man team cleans up. Cooks plan their menu and see that the groceries are on hand. If 8 guys are on the trip, and we do 4 group meals each team of two cooks once, cleans once, and does nothing twice but drink.
