The Syncro Solstice planning folks have been receiving such an incredible response to the Syncro Solstice announcement and planning. We are starting to finalize some events that are really number-specific, and I thought I might create an area for a geographic head count, and also a good means for those of you attending, to plan caravans and other activities from your region.

I have started things below with a simple format containing people that have spoken up about attending so far. Just give a shout out if you and your posse are coming, or to confirm your position on this list (I will note with a little ), along with your anticipated arrival day (things get going early afternoon Thursday). Some people have expressed interest in participating in some capacity, and I have denoted them with a (Söl Patröl). If you have stepped up and paid, you should have a $ next to your name. If you do not see that and you have paid, ring-ma-bell and I'll make it right. A post or a PM is fine, I will continually update this post to state those attending or on the fence, you can use it to plan caravans or other vanagon awesomeness, and the Solstice planning committee will use it to plan the best Desert Transporter Jamboree possible.

Please let me know if I have you in the wrong location on this list, if you have changed your mind, if you have more or less attendees (posse), or know someone else that is not a Samba member that is coming. I don't mean to speak for people, I just took these names from a few lists I have seen floating around. If this seems inappropriate I will remove, but this passed all my basic public-info filters. For the most part I have screen names only, which still allows folks to PM and organize well enough, right? If you have ideas on info that may improve this thread and make it more useful to you, please let me know! Anyone know how to make a table in this forum thread?

We will continue to post updates in the other Solstice thread (here: Syncro Solstice May 12-15, 2011), and the site is not far from a soft launch, so things are moving along well. We will also launch the formal registration on that thread very quickly, and provide a final schedule which will include costs (which are expected to be very LOW!). The committee is stoked, full of talent and riddled with Utah desert adventure experience. We hope this unique, Solstice experience will be the first of many years of desert play that brings this incredible and diverse community together in fun and education. There are many folks working hard for a simply wonderful trip, and we hope you can make it!

i'm in for sure. i will be coming from norcal and i will be there like the monday before and will stay a few days after.

i'm also bringing an enduro, so if anyone one is coming early and wants to ride let me know. during the event i'll probably park/leave the moto at archview campground and just bring my mtn bike.

i will most likely be solo with a possibility of a +1...he says he's 50/50, but i think it's more like 20/80.

if my friend doesn't go i'll most likely put the moto on a rack but if anyone in the sf bay area wants to take a moto as well, i'd split a trailer rental and tow it with my van. since i'm leaving earlier we don't have to caravan but i have a big ass NYC chain and lock so your moto will be safe. PM me if you wanna do it.

You can update mine to include a +1 (wife) and another possible +1 (friend) in addition to that. We're planning on coming in on Thursday.

This is Mitch, btw, since you're probably not familiar with my Samba alias (which consequently has nothing to do with my real-life identity Wink )

We'll be there. 4 in total (the fam) + a dog (he's small but strong - hence the name 'Diesel'... a bit sooty as well Confused )

Should arrive Thrs afternoon with the front range caravan (if we get that together)

ain't no "ON THE FENCE' about it.......CZ(Jeffrey) + Wife(Dayna) are all in, looking at 11th-12th arrival depending on several factors. Did get the Monday off work so we are headed to Ontario Or/Boise Id on that day, then the next day may go all the way, or, meetup with others..... I have no other toys to play with so looking to get the most out of the hiking, swimming and ride along options with intermittent periods of lucidity Laughing

You may add the original thread url in a linky such as this Syncro Solstice May 12-15, 2011 Wink I hate to see more people get confused with too many threads.

I will be there for sure on the 12th, although I may be in the area all week if I can get away. I have a friend who has an '85 Westy who has expressed and interest and may come, plus I have a freind who has a different make van who has helped me do mechanic work on mine who may want to come to see all the cool VW's.
We are hoping to do some river running and mt biking before the 12th on some of the little Southern Utah creeks and maybe in the San Rafael Swell.

Me +1 (8 yr old son). I hope to roll out of Denver on Wednesday and camp in Fruita that evening, then mountain bike in the a.m. and catch the Denver/Front Range caravan on Thursday mid-day.

I plan to attend Syncrofest and tentatively SdM so am thinking about cruising over after if the rig & I can handle. So I'm on the fence right now. Would plan to arrive late Wed or before noon Thurs. But if everyone has caravaned off if/when I get there don't wait for me --- just being in the Moab again works for me. Very Happy But it's all too early for me to call right now.

Put me down for 1.
I'll be quietly slipping into camp in the middle of the night Thursday the 12th or in the wee hours of the 13th depending on when I can get out of Phoenix.

Just leave the light on for me!

I'm in, coming solo (can't talk the wife and kids out of school, mainly because she's a teacher.)

Planning on meeting up with the Colorado folks, arriving Thursday.

Me and the wife will be there for sure. Hopefully we can do the caravan thing on Thursday.

If you bring a dirt bike, you need to get a Utah ohv sticker unless it's street legal in your state.
