Oh sorry about that. But he did received it and updated us all with your response to the question.

Have you all been on many Expedition style off road trips before? It's a cool adventure.......a little more work than just setting up a camp spot for the weekend and such, but you get to see so much more and everyday is an adventure!! :grin2:

No this is our first expedition style trip. We wanted to do expedition style trips in the past but just never had the time. But we do plan on doing a lot more expedition style trips in the future.

Well cool......true newbies!! No worries, we've been doing this for a Long Long time!!! Just absolutely come prepared, and you'll be doing fine!! As I told Adam, at Least 3 extra gas cans (bring them empty and fill them up when we go over to Fort Mohave to refuel before leaving, Lots and lots of water!! You've got a truck, so you'll have a lot of room for stuff like extra water, Fire Wood, Big ice chests and what not!!
Also, make sure you all get your portable toilet systems all ready to go too!! And of course, Big trash bags, paper plates, utensils, extra parts and fluids never hurts, as well as tools.....etc.....

Here is the basic set up, PETT Environmental Portable Toilet
Then you would order another box of wag bags, and perhaps the Privy tent (you can get the PETT tent, or there's many less expensive privy tents available. Also, other places for the PETT toilet also. But $69.00 is a pretty good price for that, but they only give you three (3) Wag Bags, so you definitely want to order, at least an extra box of 12-50 or 100 (the bigger quantities are good to have on hand and cost less per bag) I just found a guy on Ebay who had the Best deals on the wag bags, and are waiting for a lot of 23 of them to get here.

Our plan is to definitely over prepare. we've done some mini trips but nothing to this extent. 80 miles is our previous max miles off road and away. So this will be an awesome step up.

We ordered CB's and fuel cans are all worked out. luckily recovery gear and Tire plug kits etc we already had on hand. Fluids are indeed a must. :smile2:

Sounds good! Did everyone get their toilet systems ready to go?
Once you buy one, you'll always have it!! Again, most also get the privy tent as well......

I'm waiting patiently to see who else is going to sign up.........if it stays right here, then no need for me to pay for the damn NPS Permit!!! So, whomever else is on the fence........please make up your mind(s) and let me know like, Real soon.....if you're committed to going or not, as the permitting process is a pain in the ass and antiquated the way they do it!! :)

Thanks for understanding!!! :smile2:

Hah yea got that figured out. also got someone sleeping in my awning room, so thats a privy room until you put the floor on it. lol

I've got another friend who is interested. Does that affect your permit if he comes in the same vehicle with me? Luckily another guy already have a 3 man tent so I dont have to worry about carrying his crap!
