Hmm. I May have to back out sean. I am going to be camping the last week of July up near oregon. It's going to be tough to get back after a week in the woods and drive down to the dusy in a day or two. I guess it'll depend upon when you guys are leaving, I'll make it if I can.

I initially thought the second weekend was going to be it but most of my group prefers the first, including kate.

Did the trail and lived to tell about it. Lots of fun and tough, long haul. Highly recommended.

Cool. So the $1,000 question. How much gas did it take driving a Scout?

Did the new upgrades work out. Gas tank and FI

That's a tough question.....

With my new fuel injection and new 30 gallon tank, I'm having a hard time reckoning the mileage. I figured I used 20 gallons but that seems low. I would think a Scout with stock tank and 2 jerry cans would be fine.

I would think twice about bringing a carbureted rig on this trail. The altitude is very high and the climbing is steep.

Also, if I had my way, I would take 4 days to do this trail. It's that long and considering break downs, we could of used the extra time. I ended up busting my drivers side hub bolts (stretched and snapped) and the Jeep busted his cv joint (no spare) on his front drive shaft.

Moral of the story is to go prepared. This trail seems just easy enough till it catches you. Which is funny, the only scar I got was from a baby pine tree as I started to let my mind wander. Maybe next time I'll go with my Scout brothers and have to carry less spare parts.
