    Perfect weather today!
    Just stopped in Hanksville for fuel and beer.
    About hour and a half drive on asphalt to camp.

    Bob's been sending me some pictures without captions and asked me to post 'em up. I'll do my best to add some short descriptions. First one of their campsites, then our own Jeff Strite cooking, and then Rob (from Park City UT) watching someone make supper.

    Couple more pics, believe that's the Colorado river in the canyon shot, then some sand dunes, and a pretty neat spot in the trail

    Last three from me for now, getting ready to cross Lake Powell on the ferry, Morgan's broken driveshaft (Bob said Mitch had a spare with him), and a neat slickrock ascent

    4 hours into the Hole in the Rock trail, our mission was thrawrted by Morgan’s broken driveshaft. Luckily Bart saved the day by having a spare 80 Driveshaft with him and we were out of a jam and Home by dark

    Ultimate trail fix today. Tracy blew up a front Spring pack. With duct tape and a radiator clamp it was held together to go 15-20 mph. Then we found a desert carcass of an old half track and swiped a spring pack clamp and fashioned it to fit the 60
