high flows, that thought crossed my mind.
or maybe that was the only time their group could get time off to do the trip.
or maybe since they were driving so far they were linking it up with a deso or other trip on the way.
or they already paid for the permit.
something along those lines.
and of course you know how these cat threads always seem to end up with a 'discussion' over motor/no motor end up, maybe they might like to hook up with one of us? just tryin' to be neighborly!
that was my line of thinking.
