      Moab 2016 Roll Call

      Realize this is a dormant thread, but thought I'd use it to list the current attendees for Moab 2016, as the other thread includes other 2016 events and runs throughout the U.S. Besides, I'm traveling for work this weekend and am bored...

      Lots of the PNW Crew will be there by the 15th, and I know a few others from their posts on the "20th Anniversary Thread" had mentioned being in Moab early.

      Should be no shortage of RBVs available for runs by the 18th. . .

      Trails

      Never too early to start talking about which trails to run, so I'll throw out a few that I'd be willing to lead over the weekend. I'm kinda of re-acquainting my wife to four wheeling, so the runs I plan on running are more or less in the "moderate" range. . .

      Poison Spider Mesa (out and back, not with Gold Bar and Spike)
      Fins and Things (Fee Area) Think this would a great Night Run for Friday
      Steel Bender
      Top of the World
      Metal Masher
      Any of the "Green" Trails (Chicken Corners, Hey Joe Canyon, etc.)

      Anyone else?

      I wimped out of Hell's Gate in 2010 so I need redemption.
      We got washed out of Kane Creek Canyon so more redemption there.

      Gotta start reading trail descriptions.

      Not sure about Pritchett Canyon :roll::eek:

      I'll be there 14-22 and would love to give Poison Spider a go along with Hells Gate! Kane Creek was awesome last year, definitely a must for anyone willing to drag a truck up it!
