Croce, thank you for the advice and warning. I think I will skip Blue this time, even if I'd really like to go there. Two years ago I got there by south route all by myself without a problem. While I absolutely agree that the environment is very fragile and the canyon needs to be protected, the appetites of the Hopi guides are somewhat overwhelming.
Greg, I think I figured the route, now need the weather to cooperate. Wish I had someone with similar interest to join me, it's going to be a fun trip - and on a budget side, as there is a deal for one-way rental from Hertz. Here is the link to the itinerary. It does not reveal everything, but gives an idea.
I do remember about full moon, and in fact, I already have an excel spreadsheet with all distances, times, coordinates, angles etc outlined (do it for each trip). I keep watching the weather - few days ago, the forecast was cloudy for all four days of my trip. Now it is "brilliant sunshine"
Can't wait, really excited
