I always travel light for this trip.  In the past, I have gotten in pretty late, so I have Friday dinner on the road, and bring breakfast bars and lunch meat for Saturday.

Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast are provided by the Marine League Charities.

No idea on the caravan, as I never know when I can get out of work.  Post up when you are going, and people may be able to join you.

Maybe you and I can caravan out! I've got one passenger to pick up, we'll only be 1 vehicle instead of 3. We plan to bring a tent, although depending when we leave and arrive we may not setup, a couple tarps for quick shade/rain cover, an easy up cover 10x10, a larger cooler with ice, water/powerade, and probably some beer.

Most likely going the route of quick foods and planning on scarfing dinner and breakfast with the Marines.

For those of you who have been before, are we in groups of vehicles or are we isolated to singles along the route?

Sounds like a idea. I was thinking mid afternoon? I got a camper on my truck but I may bring a tent as well so no real rush to set things up.

I plan on heading up the hill around 6pm on Friday. I also am packing light. I plan on sleeping in the X and only plan on bringing a cooler for water and other choice liquids. I'm still working on some type of device for shade.

From what I have read. Arrive Friday night and set up a small camp. Pack up first thing in the morning and report to the designated spot on the route. It sounds like we will be spread out. When race ends we set up camp at finish area where the party begins. Pack up camp Sunday morning and head back down the hill.

On Sunday as we leave if anyone would like to run a trail I would be down. Could find something up there or maybe Sedona or something else.

We are spread out throughout the course.  Once the last rider passes you, it's your choice if you want to fall in with the rest of the vehicles sweeping the course, or if you want to hit the highway and proceed to end camp.  I have always chosen to sweep the course (pick up the signs and any garbage left by the riders).

From the event Facebook page:

"Have a 4-Wheel drive truck and want to help out? We need a couple of people to help us mark the course on Friday August 1st. Must be available to play in the dirt all day. Good time guaranteed. Contact us ASAP flag2gcride@gmail.com"

Another reason I would personally like to get their early. I want more time to play and relax. :)

"Hi Rob, we meet at Kickstand Cafe at 9am and generally get started by around 10am"

Not sure I can make it that early. Lol
