Travel mates/advice sought: Xian-Lanzhou-XiNing-Xinjiang Aug-Sept 2012

Fellow CSers! I somehow managed to get a few weeks of freedom from mid-August to early September, and would like to explore the last frontier of China! I don't have a strict timeline or plan, so I'm open to suggestions. I'll be travelling alone, so I was hoping to find a travel mate or even a group, for part of the trip or the whole way. I'm planning to travel mostly by train or bus. Couchsurfing when possible and staying in hostels/guesthouses otherwise. I'm fluent in Chinese, currently living in Taiwan but going to Hong Kong for school in the Fall. Please reply below or message me if you are interested or have any advice! Thanks in advance!

I'm going to Xinjian some thing mid sept. but diff route Dun Huang, Urumqi/turpan then Kashi. post your plans. I'll also be staying at hostels. it would be great to travel with others as I understand fewer people there speak mandarin.
