    I have room for 3 more and their gear in my double cab pickup. What is the time that we're meeting at Denny's?

      That's funny. I love Zion. Seems like a great place to get abducted ;) Sorry I can't come this time. Hope the Government opens up soon so y'all can go!

    Due to the Federal Government shutdown Zion NP and all national parks are closed. Let's hope this situation is resolved in time for our trip next weekend . . .

    Me thinks Hans was playing fast and loose with his words when he said, "I've got room for two more in my 4x4 Suburban if there's anyone from Phoenix and surrounds that wants to ride with a couple of Tucsonans". He meant to say, "I've got room for two more in my 4x4 Suburban if there's anyone from Phoenix and surrounds that wants to ride IN THE BACK SEAT with a couple of Tucsonans". LaFong don't "back seat seat" for anyone. Just kidding!

    LaFong and I will be leaving from Tucson to meet at Denny's. I've got room for two more in my 4x4 Suburban if there's anyone from Phoenix and surrounds that wants to ride with a couple of Tucsonans.

    I'll be leaving from Tucson. Anyone else? I think LaFong hails from Tucson. Carpool Request. I'll be away from email till 23 Sept., so don't expect a response until then.

      Yo Hans, what are you thinking? I have a 10-year old, low-mileage Ford Ranger pickup truck I'd be only too happy to drive. Lots of cargo space, but a minimum of passenger space. Oh yeah, anyone who rides with me had better enjoy bluegrass music.

    I was able to get the permit today for the wonderful campsite at the confluence of La Verkin Creek and Kolob Creek for 12. I have also reserved two campsites for us at Watchman Campground. This will be a great trip!
