Rubicon, summer 2016?

Hey, everyone! I am just now beginning the process of planning a Rubicon trip for the summer of 2016. This gives everyone time to build their rigs, plan time off, plan routes, and save the money. There are a couple things I want to do to my rig before we go, which will take time and money. My kids have to grow a little too. I was planning on driving my rig, but fuel mileage sucks, so I would not be opposed to renting a big truck and car hauler to tow it up. I would be willing to split the rental fees and fuel with one or two others in exchange for trailer room.
I'm thinking third week in August, as the Jamboree takes up the first two weeks if Im not mistaken. They charge a few hundred bucks to join them, which helps kill the budget. We could move the dates around between June and August. The trip will be best suited to take up about 6-10 days total. That way, we can take our time on the trail, and maybe stop at any touristy places in between. I don't want to feel rushed for this trip, and want to be able to enjoy the trail.
Who would be realistically serious about joining on this trip? It's been on my Jeeping bucket list since I bought our Jeep, and I got a taste of the trail in August of 2013, but only had a half a day to play. If anyone has run the trail, what could you recommend for us to bring as far as spare parts and tools? What about trail necessities, like restroom requirements. I read somewhere that everyone is required to bring some sort of portable toilet system, a chemical spill kit, etc.
Lets get this thing planned so we can start getting everything ready. We need to consider hotel lodging on the start side of the trail. We need to consider parking if we are towing the rigs. What else?

hey power it aint that hard. Wag bags, spill kit yep to many people out there pooping. 2016!! good god man thats over a year and half away. if you tow you can park it at the spill way at the start from Ice house. But you have to drive around the south shore back to ice house or do the trail back. Ill keep this in mind, if you dont mind. To far away to say yes know but I am a possible

Yeah, I know it's a bit of a long way off, but that was done on purpose. Many people already have vacation plans set for this year coming up, so I wanted to present it this early. Also, it gives my kids some time to get a little bigger to handle the trip a little better. Gives me time to save up the money too, lol.
If I tow up there, we could just drive the southern edge of the lake and highway it back, no big deal there. Ideally, we could find someone to drive the tow vehicle around and wait for us at the end, but it would be a pretty boring few days for that person.

Nice ride back around anyway. Looking like this winter might bring some snow to that area, it needs it bad too. I have friends that live close to the trail too. I have run that trail starting in the early 70"s. great fun..
