    When (what time of day) do you wish to meet at Hanksville?

    I'm debating a day in Moab (Moab to Hanksville 1h45m drive) or possibly overnighting at Goblin Valley State Park (Google Map) north of Hanksville.

    I'm not sure, I'm thinking we will likely all get there in the late afternoon (6-7 hour drive for me). We could plan to meet in Hanksville around 5pm-ish and then fuel up and head to Poison Springs road, start heading up the canyon and looking for a spot to camp somewhere before the water crossing. Sunset in early May is around almost 830pm so we'd have 3.5 hours from getting gas in Hanksville to finding a camp spot on Poisons Springs for the night.... I think that's totally doable.

    Goblin Valley SP is very close to where we exit... in fact the turnoff from Hwy 24 is almost directly across the street from the turnoff for the Flint trail (leads to The Maze), our exit spot.

    "Am I reading this correctly as 206 miles round trip from Hanksville back to Hanksville?"

    Yes. That's what Google Maps calculates for distance based on the campsite locations and route Matt is looking to travel.

    I'll bring extra fuel (2.5gal cans - one or two will be with me). I'll likely try to run in fuel conserve mode (2-high [vs 4-low] where I can get away with it). There's a reasonable calculation that I can do the run w/o extra fuel.

    I believe we will be in 2wd most of the time to be honest, but we will definitely have sections of 4hi and 4Lo for sure! Iíll bring 10 gallons of extra gas and my truck has a 31 or 34 gallon tank so I probably wonít need the gas but I like to be over prepared

    I made it 190 miles on the tank of gas that took us through Needles district (from Monticello to Moab). I'll definitely need extra fuel since that tank was about 90-100 miles of pavement along with the dirt roads and 4-low time.
