Okay I looked at the calender and talked with my boss. I really need to be back and ready to work on the 24 so I would need most of the 23rd as a driving day, especially if we did the Gila (the Guads are closer so I could hike a few miles on the 23rd and drive home in the afternoon evening.
If we want to do the Gila how would it work to meet on the 20th and hike the 20th, 21rd and 22nd. We could make the 22nd a long day and get back late. I'd probably spend the night at the trailhead and head home first thing on the 23rd. Does that sound doable?
Still interested? The more the merrier.
I'm thinking this would be a good time for me to try for the Gila even though its a long drive but if someone has a strong desire to do some other place I wouldn't object.
