2 ?'s about ruby/westwater

it had been a while since there had been a thread about these places so I figured I would start one. A couple of questions - are those fruita locals still breaking into cars at loma, and is there anything in particular to watch out for in Westy at 19k+ besides the general dont go into the room of doom and keep it in the middle?

Depending on the size of your group, have everyone pitch for a local shuttle company and make it so they have to move one or two cars. oh and RDTFM (Right down the F*ck!n middle.)

Have a good trip.

No problem with break ins last weekend at loma or cisco. The river stole my chacos though. And yeah, right down the middle...

One other thing, make sure you know your camp eddies. After we missed several eddies in the rafts the first day (too hammered...), I went out ahead in my kayak to scout the camp eddies, as depending on where you are camping, they can be tough to catch. The little D area above westwater canyon can be particularly tricky right now.
