Swiss Family of 5 In Search of Rig/Setup for U.S. Vacation!

Swiss Family of 5 In Search of Rig/Setup for U.S. Vacation!

Adventurous family from Switzerland have budgeted for capable off-road setup to explore Utah, Colorado, and Arizona from July 10th - July 30th.

The obvious challenge here will be finding something for 5 adults in such short notice.  We're looking for something along the lines of a 4x4 van or large SUV that can mount a roof top ten and/or pull a trailer with a RTT.  If you feel that your rig/setup could meet their needs, please don't hesitate to contact us.

The family may also be willing to work an "Exchange" with you so that you could travel to Switzerland and use their home/vehicles/gear.

 VA Girl Needs Gear for Backcountry Trails 5 mo. Program in California!

WANTED:

My packing list is huge! I'll be living in CA for 5 months of fully backcountry camping (at height) doing trail maintenance with the Backcountry Trails Program, if you're curious. 

I'm open to buying or renting and my most pressing needs (besides clothing) include:

-Sleeping bag (mummy style, 0 degree, liner preferred, and compression sac)

-Tent (1 or 2 person)

- Backpack* (internal frame, size/height Small, 70-80 L capacity)

-Cooking pot + Backpacking stove

*I actually have a brand new beautiful Marmot backpack but it's simply too big (Medium/Medium). I'd love to get some money for it or work out a deal to find one that fits me better. 

I'm a tad frantic about getting all my gear before I start driving across the country, leaving Williamsburg on April 15th for Reston, VA, then trekking west on rout 70 to Auburn, CA . IF you want to see my whole packing list, feel free to check it out HERE  I'm in Tennessee right now visiting family until Tuesday 3/28, so if anyone in Tennessee can help and sees this before I leave, please reach out!
