    Default The Maze District - Canyonlands Adventure



    I guess this is the next step, posting in the Planned Trail Runs section. I'm also posting the poll to get commitment from folks for an accurate count.

    Looks like the dates will be Wednesday 6/14 to Monday 6/19. We could certainly shorten that if need be by a day, I was thinking between 4-6 days initially, so this falls in line.

    My calendar is blocked off as well!

    One thing to note is that the route has some backtracking on day 4, and I have included a night in Moab to shower and sleep on a bed, so if someone needs to shorten the trip they can skip the last day or skip the stop in Moab and drive straight to CO to save a day, or skip both to save 2 days.

    I think we have to backtrack, there really isn't a full loop based on the map I'm finding. I like the plan personally and as far as I'm concerned, it's set in stone as THE plan.

    To be clear I wasn't suggesting to change the plan, just throwing it out there if one or two people can't do the full 6 days, they could save a day or two that way while the rest of us continue. But hopefully we have the full crew the whole time!

    I've got one more from my overlandbound forum who RSVP'd. Nice guy, Dan, I ran with him two weekends ago snow wheeling up in WY. He's got a Land Rover outfitted nicely.

    Room for 1 more!

    It's official, we're booked! Thanks to Isak for calling me to remind me, got caught up with work this morning and forgot. :O

    6/15 - Happy Canyon/The Neck
    6/16 - Dollhouse 1 & 2
    6/17 - Maze Overlook 1 & 2


    Cost is $27 per vehicle.


    Now I vote that we meetup on a weekend at some point to discuss logistics. Maybe meet for a drink or for lunch or something. Weekends generally pretty good for everyone? I'm thinking maybe end of March?

    We just bought a house and will be moving in at the end of March so that will not work for me. I think it may be best to plan for end of April or early May so that its closer to the trip and everyone doesn't forget what they need to get!

    Thanks for getting the camping reservations.

    It is a good idea to meet in person and I can meet just about on just about any date.

    Am I looking for clarification??? Each of those nights list different camp sites. Do we get to choose each night which we wish to stay at? I assumed at reservation time the specific site would be set (Dollhouse 1 or Dollhouse 2; Happy Canyon or The Neck).

    Jim - Each site can only accommodate 3 vehicles and we have 4 confirmed so far and are capping it at 6 so that we only need 2 sites each night. So we booked 2 sites for each night, the Dollhouse and Maze sites are right next to each other, the first night its about a mile apart.

    We still have 2 open vehicle slots.

    Ah, thanks - so you have both sites booked each night. Now I understand.

    Dan is also coming, he did not use the poll, it might by closed by now. We only have 1 vehicle spot available at this time, total of 5 confirmed.

    I thought we had 4 with Dan, but I can't see who responded to the poll on my end. Jim, Dan, Mike, myself - who is the 5th?

    Jason would be the 5th, he's @jlwillys21 (I don't know if tagging him will work on this forum). I met Jason and his wife the first time I went out with this group snow wheeling around Nederland. Nice guy, and he has a Jeep, so... he's cool. Originally, he said he wasn't sure but he selected "YES!" in the poll so I'm assuming he was able to get the time off work and committed.

    Ok cool, yea Iíve met Jason on my first run too, good guy!

    So my buddy should be able to make it and take the last spot. Being in the army there is always a chance of a last minute change of plans, but he should be able to confirm for certain within a month of the trip. Since no one has taken that spot yet I would like to hold it for him if everyone is cool with that?
