    The trail leaders will be carrying portable toilets for emergencies, but it is preferred that you fend for yourself (in an environmentally responsible manor, of course).

    There are public toilets on some of the trails, usually at the trail head (no pun intended).

    I'm debating whether to bring by mtn bike or not. Bear in mind I'm from IL and will have a hardtail.
    Are there a few moderate trails that won't kill me? Any suggestions?

    From http://www.trails.com/list_1526_utah...in-biking.html :

    Mountain Bike Meccas

    For decades, Moab has earned a reputation as The Mountain Biking Capital of the World. Trails such as Slickrock and Porcupine Rim are some of the best-known mountain biking trails anywhere. Best known for its slickrock and rocky 4 by 4 roads, Moab also offers access to alpine mountain biking through the La Sal Mountains to the south, thus making it an excellent taste of Utah. Moab and the greater surrounding area offer numerous mountain biking routes for novice and expert riders.

    Friday, 10/22, is a free day with no scheduled off-road trails so you will have time for riding.

    There are plenty of places to rent bikes in Moab if you don't want to bring your own.

Stop in Vail area to break(drive) up(do a little flyfishing for a few days) and then 4 days of fun in Moab.Really looking forward to it.Don't want to jinx myself but I think the Disco is ready to rock and roll(hopefully not roll but.......!).Anyone else excited?

    16 hour drive from NorCal for me, with a stock 3.5l lump....so, I may be even longer. I am excited and nervous at the same time......preparring, but also trying to determine worst case and when......ahhhhhh

    No relaxing on this trip. Hammer down out, hammer down back.....
    It's about people and the Land Rovers that own them.

    Yeah,couple of years ago when we were preparing(worst case) for Rally in Moab it involved airplane tickets from Moab airport.When we left St.louis for Moab,I had never driven the Rover more than 40 miles at any one time(much less 1200).Didn't know if we would even get out of Missouri.It made it there and back (trail repair driveshaft in Moab and hit a huge deer(elk?) in Colorado were only setbacks).Part of the experience.
