    Coming out from Iowa for the EOE rendevous by myself and want hit some new canyons before. Only really done canyons in Escalante area before and open to anything else in Utah.

    I'll have my 4wd pickup and am willing to drive wherever. Have my own gear, rope, wetsuit, and PLB. Willing to be a pack mule for the opportunity to tag along and see some new canyons. I would say I'm fairly competent canyoneer for the number of canyons I've done and looking through the ACA skills sheet I think I could check off everything through Aspirant and most of Leader 1.

    Little about myself, grew up and live in Iowa. Have undergrad in Agriculture & Biosystems Engineering and a Masters in Mechanical Engineering and Biorenewable Resources. Work in Biofuels research. My wife and I own a winery (willing to bring plenty to share :)). Volunteer Firefighter and EMS. Have FF1 and will be taking EMT this winter. Taken courses in Technical Rope Rescue, Swift Water Rescue, and Ice Rescue. I'm 29 fairly fit 6' 200lbs hopefully closer to 185 by October.

    Quick canyon resume
    Canyoneering course and pothole workshop with EOE
    Micro Death+dirty jobs
    E0,1,1.5,2, and 3
    Sad Cow Disease
    AFC
    Doodles

    Bump for a month out, going through gear and getting excited. Except for the 1200 mile drive both ways.:vomit:

    I know all you locals just play it by ear and go but I'm a planner.

    Open to anything in Southern Utah. I'll leave the night of the 20th and should be ready to hit a canyon first thing on the 22nd.

    Feel free to PM what your thinking I haven't heard from anyone else, not exclusive to Escalate (was actually wanting to see some different country).

    Bumping again since I've only heard from Johnnny in Escalante. Which I'm grateful for but was looking to see some different areas since that almost exclusively where I've went before. Anyone else free in southern Utah or have a spot open 22nd-25th? I'll be a packmule and bring rope and a sandtrap.
