Might be interested, too soon to tell. How long are you thinking that trail will take Montrose to Moab?

BTW I am thinking of coming to Wyoming in August for the solar eclipse on the 21st...which also happens to be my birthday (just a coincidence I'm sure).

The info I have looked at says says it can be run in 2 days but I would like to give it 3 days and take it a little slower to make it more enjoyable. I guess it would also depend on trail condition and what kind of country you were in. Tabby's Trooper is completely stock so that could slow things a little although what I saw in Co. she is a good driver. Dave

Not sure if I have enough time to do that, but we'll see.
