looking for partners for tour of The MAZE AREA OF CANYONLANDS NATIONAL PARK

Hi, Myself and a friend from the UK were wanting to do Navtec’s 5/6 Day Maze tour in Canyonlands leaving around Nov 16, but they require a minimum 3 people. Although I can reserve immediately, his situation is that he won't know until mid-Oct, so I'm looking for at least 2 others. Obviously going with a tour company means paying (the tour link is below), but the very rough trails require 4WD and national car rental firms don’t rent them or allow vehicles off paved road, so hiring a 4WD Jeep for a week independently in Moab plus gas/food would cost almost as much as the tour (plus the tour company provide food, don’t need to search out water or carry heavy overnight packs or worry about getting lost without GPS, cars breaking down etc, plus there might be the chance to leave the Maze by rafting Cataract Canyon down to Lake Powell and an optional flight over the park back).­
Navtec said they are happy to add a day to their standard 5 day trip in the link as we also want to include the iconic sunset/sunrise view by camping a night at Maze Overlook overlooking the Maze and Chocolate Drops, and they said the extra day will also allow exploration of Ernie’s Country’s fins, and the Pete’s Mesa/Harvest Scene hike would be a loop to take in a ridge overlooking the Maze canyons (a 6th day adds a bit to the price to cover extra food/gas, but it’s not too much more). It would be great if anyone wants to join us, but we’d need a pretty quick definite yes, and I guess at least a deposit for Navtec, as we have to move to confirm the tour, book flights, or if we don’t get a third, make alternative plans. We’d be driving from Denver if someone needs transport, but would not be returning there until about Dec 2. Ideally email me at rosskaniuk (at) (where the at is @) or post here, or private message. Thanks, Ross
