Been scarce from the expeditions for awhile, I have reasons, but this is my childhood backyard, so I can put my name down as a "I can/will probably make this work"

Someone remind me in 1.5 years.

So you might want to look at the Togwotee (pronounced Toe-geh-tee) area also for this run Jimbo...there are a bajillion logging roads and offroad opportunities and its national forest versus national park, so significantly less restrictions on where we go and what we do. It looks like it would be dead center in the path and you can get up to higher elevations with less density as far as people go

Maybe
I will likely go to FJ summit 11 because it's 1 Louder and I have to attend things like that. Who knows what my schedule will be like a year from now.

If someone steals a plane I will be happy to fly it. We have a few other professional pilots among our ranks. Just make sure they are the ones to get arrested.
