Here's an updated version of the plan as I know it:

May 6th:
(1) Arrive in Moab and check in at the KOA
(2) Trail 0 - Moab Rim (a quick afternoon sprint to the top) - Bonus Event Option 1
(3) Hike to Delicate Arch in the evening - Bonus Event Option 2

FRONT 9
May 7th:    Trail 1 - Hells Revenge + Potato Salad Hill (?)
May 8th:    Trail 2 - Rusty Nail + Golden Spike + Gold Bar Rim
May 9th:    Trail 3 - Metal Masher

BACK 9
May 10th:   Trail 4 - Elephant Hill (be prepared to pack out your poo)
May 11th:   Trail 5 - Kane Creek Canyon
May 12th:   Trail 6 - Behind the Rocks (?)
May 13th:   Depart Moab

Clearly, the group that's still in Moab and CrankyCrawler and I skedaddle on Wednesday morning can wheel where ever they want, but I thought I'd throw out a suggested itinerary for the BACK 9:

May 10th: Trail 4 - Elephant Hill (if you're going to be prepared to pack out your poo)
May 11th: Trail 5 - Poison Spider Mesa (+ 1st Loop on Where Eagles Dare to go see the overlook.)
May 12th: Trail 6 - Top of the World (This is clearly on the list for Chris so would be a very scenic low risk final day.)

CrankyCrawler enjoys Kane Creek so that's a good option as well, it's just never been one that really excited me.
