It depends if you are camping or not. The desert is all about extremes, so plan on very cold weather at night and livable/cool during the day - however, it also means that snow storms can roll in and make roads impassible overnight and the daytime melt can cause flooding. If you are staying in town, none of this would be a problem because the plans can be altered to account for the weather, but backcountry travel can be hazardous.

Copy, about what I experienced in Arizona last year.

I'd be down for a fall or spring '21 trip, depending on when things return to some semblance of normalcy.

So sorry to hear that, BCS. Hope the treatments help get her healthy again.

2020 can definitely fuck right off.

Agreed. BCS, I hope the treatments are speedy and helpful and hope she kicks cancer's arse.

Thanks for the kind words, folks. The doctors seem pretty positive about successful treatment, and they can treat younger people pretty aggressively so we've got that going for us. Still hasn't stopped me from being an anxious wreck lately, though. Good news has been in short supply.

Don't forget to take care of yourself through all this. When my dad was in the hospital following a major injury, I took every Friday night off for about 2-3 hours. The entire rest of the week was my designated time to manage things and worry about outcomes, but those few hours with friends were off limits. It really helped me get through it and hold the rest of the family together.

Best of luck with everything BCS.

Moab will still be there when this is all over. It'll give us all more time to get our rigs dialed in @Der Stig

Yeah I think I'll be OK (can always hide in the garage for a bit, haha) but the COVID situation has made it tough to connect with friends and relax. I'm sure others have it way worse than me so I try to keep perspective on it.

BCS had a good idea- y'all wanna get on a Zoom or Teams chat sometime this month and have some virtual beers?

We usually use Hangouts, but I'd be up for it.

How does May 1st sound? It's a Friday so if we get carried away, we're not hungover for work 😅
