Other notes: 

The desert can be unpredictable, so prepare accordingly (water, food, first aid, personal items)

I will post updates for weather closer to the date.

Vehicles will be responsible for at least 2 bundles of wood, or if someone with a truck wants to bring more someone can bring less.

Everyone will be required to deal with their own bio-waste in a responsible and respectful way. There will be some pit toilets along the route.
