We my health issues, the elevation at Bryce gave me reason for concern.

Last year's adventure with 2 of the grands in Arizona and Colorado has lifted my confidence level in dealing with 5,000^ elevation (eight straight days of 5,000 to 14,000 feet elevation).

Rule # 1 - - Don't lift or carry heavy loads
Rule #2 - - If it's further than 2 football fields, drive your car to it and park . . . . . close.
Rule #3 - - Walk slowly, rest, walk slowly, rest - - - never be in a hurry
Rule # 4 - - Never be embarrassed enough to break rules 1 thru 3

Yes following Jeff up to Oregon sounds good but I want to make sure I have plenty of time to see it all while up there. The parks you mentioned in the other thread sounded interesting and we've not been there yet. Will do a little map reading and work out an initial plan. Still don't know your dates at BC?

Anyone planning to attend the GC 1.2 in Arkansas in about 2 months is welcome to join the GC planning email list, aka RVM-GC. Just email or PM myself or Di. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLease include your email address so we know where to send messages. This will not be a chatty, BS list. We have the RVM2RVM email list for the fun stuff. Once we leave Arkansas this will become the Bryce Canyon GC planning list.

Once subscribed to the list if you don't want to receive messages for the next GC, your email delivery status can be switched to either No Email or Daily Digest (1 email each day with all that day's messages). This will work easier for moderators than adding and removing you from the list.

Total trip appx 3300 miles.

Any and all advice greatly appreciated!!

Going to try to get hold of the guy who can do a monthly rate - if he's wiling to do so... I have been told that Zions lower elevation will mean high Temps - but having come from Las Vegas in July I will probably be OK with it by then. Will research Zion and see what it looks like. Will get back to you.

Excellent advice oh Lucid One!
I think it will be fine for us. And of course as Jeff said oxygenate with water.

Steve, I developed that credo while at 8500 in NM. It works!
Shall we talk and walk slowly together in Utah?

Cool!
In Bryce, we will all be with friends in high places.
Hurricanes and bloody marys not withstanding. Or maybe so?
Dang! Another quandry to ponder.

Well Arkansas sent the cold down here yesterday. It's just below 50 and the North wind is blowing around 10 mph. Mid 50's today. Eek...

Hey Steve and Dave,

Now that we have scheduled the time and place for a western GC have you started a plan for reaching out to those Mutants who live out that way who have been MIA lately?

I'm thinking Nissa, Toyduck, Traveldogs, Muddypaws and others who might be able to plan to join us if given enough heads up. I'll gladly help if you send me the 411.

Not yet... I have tried calling the Duck numerous times to no avail. Will need to look into that. It's on the list.

I will contact sweet Nissa.
Maybe she can! But she has a new J.O.B so don't know what vacation time she has.
Folks, Nissa is a gem. Let me know when you will be near Prescott AZ and I will hook you up.
We have had many fine times with her and her lab Drake.

Does everyone know about the passes that can save $ at Bryce Canyon National Park and most federal recreation sites?

Here's more info

U.S. National Park ServiceAmerica the Beautiful – The National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Pass Series

Some are free and you can purchase them at a park without having to pay a processing fee.

See ya in August at GC 2.0!
