MOAB
« on: June 12, 2016, 09:59:20 am »
The time is coming for a Moab adventure. Tow rigs and trailers are coming together, our vehicles are stronger than they have ever been, and Hidden Falls will continue to become more challenging and add more wear and tear. Thus, I propose maybe one lead up outing, but all in an effort to truly make it to Moab after Easter Jeep Weekend in 2017. Immediate thoughts and availability?

For me personally, I believe we can camp each night, or if we have a large enough group, have a good long train going and drive at night, especially at the start of the drive through Texas to capitalize on cooler night temps and to drive slower.

IF all goes well I think 3 days wheeling will be awesome ... about 18-20 hours each way.... leave on a sunday and get back late saturday would be doable :)

Lets figure it out. It will be hard to take a whole week off work, but I can work remotely.

My kids could not go but I can work that out.

Maybe I will have my cummins back by then :-(

good news is your drive will certainly be shorter than ours. I am already trying to figure out camping/lodging when we get there. It will probably be best to get that reserved fairly quickly..... No backsies outsies LOL

Yep that should be the best time.

This spot has been suggested for camping/cabins:

So in more research, the true test it appears will be the first jaunt, where most of the elevation change occurs. a 4k+ foot change from here to Albuquerque, and it actually drops 1k feet at Moab.

I am thinking it would be best to try and travel in a group if possible. Thats a long drive and there is bound to be an issue or two come up.

camp ground looks good.. they have cabins :-D lol

Yep we should certainly try to travel together. It has been recommended to make reservations waaayyy early for camping or cabins. I am not sure if we are tent camping yet....we may do a cabin or possibly bring Scotty....

I personally need to look into the requirements of getting something road worthy in order to travel from camp to the trails.
