    No, we will arrive in Lander, then go up to the Christina trail head, drive Christina lake, then camp at the trail head. The trail head is huge with lots of room plus the surronding area has lots of places too.

    This is the trial head.

    I hope that nothing gets in the way of me coming. Last year it was my stock-ness that kept me home, but this year that won't be an issue. But there were lots of interested people, but only 45acp made it. Looks like even more people following already this time. 3 spots for people to hop in/out is brilliant though.

    Travis we aren't camping at Christiana lake haha

    We are camping at the base of the trail. You will be able to drive 90% of the trail and i hope you do!

    We are camping at Shoshone lake itself. But there aren't width problems there. Just armor. Which you have covered :cool:

    WOW... cool thread! You shoulda told me about this!

    You've seen my rig, how would you feel about mine taking on Leg 1 of the trip?

    Worst case, I'll come by and either ride or take my dirtbike up... Not sure about my nerves of steel though...

    I'll be too busy and my rig probably can't handle most of Legs 2 & 3... Plus, I'm not sure I can go that far right now, seeing as I want to try to do some other smaller trips to Glacier NP and Yellowstone and whatnot (for photography).

    Oh, and if I come, count on some photos! That's what I do best! :p

    Agreed. I think any stock rig can do Morrison. Just gonna take the balls to do it.

    Goose lake..im not totally sure on, but i plan on running it before hand to know for sure.

    Double cab long beds are gonna have issues i think on the corners for sure. They should have sliders and bumpers if possible.

    Ooooo nice!! alright then :cool:

    Think I would need sliders for Leg 1?

    Man... gonna be tough to decide if I should take my rig up... I really love my rig lol.

    Definitely put me down as a lurker on L1 - I'll probably decide for sure later - closer to summertime...

    Nice thread Monte. Sounds like a good plan overall. I do think adding kokopeli on to the end would be fun but I think I will be out of time by then. Maybe we can do the Dolores Triangle, Hole in the Rock and White Rim in 2014. :D

    I can pretty much guarantee there there will be more that 2 rigs at Lander this time. :cool:
