Rally Point Notes:
Meet in Green River, UT on the morning of April 26th. After a quick drivers meeting and vehicle check convoy to Hans Flat Ranger Station (approx 84miles). Check in with the Rangers to finalize permit. There is a Leave-No-Trace ethic expected so whatever we bring in we take out, including our poop (Rangers require a Reusable Sanitary Toilet)
Monday night: Panorama Point (approx 10 mi)
Tuesday night: Happy Canyon (approx 19 mi)
Wednesday night: Doll House-3 (approx 31 mi)
Thursday night: The Wall (approx 7 mi)
Friday- Drive Out via Hite/95 road (approx 45 miles from The Wall to pavement)
This is a very remote location along rough 4x4 trails. Stock off-road vehicles not recommended unless you don't mind a little under-carriage damage. There are no amenities past the Ranger Station so be prepared to bring all the food, water and fuel you will need for the week. Towing costs can exceed $2000 if there is a vehicle problem we can't repair or tow from the trail. Medical emergencies can take hours or days to get to a hospital. We will have GPS In-Reach communication and maybe HAM but don't expect quick response times, again this is very remote (no cell service)
Required Personal Gear: A good attitude! ("No plan lasts past first contact.") Everything else is just details.
Recommended Personal Gear: Cold weather clothes and sleep system. Nights can get below freezing and high winds, snow and rain can happen. Camera.
Required Vehicle Gear: Full Size spare tire with jack and wrench, Front and Rear Tow points
Recommended Vehicle Gear: Extra Fuel, Tools, spare Hoses/Belts, Fuses, Air Compressor, Recovery Gear (tow strap, shackles, etc)
