Any interest in meeting up in Moab for some wheeling? I might be meeting with some Jeep/Bronco guys middle/late April, 2021.
Thanks, Chas

You fairly solid on those dates Joe? If so, I'll push for those. Do you have an extra seat.?......You know I don't like to move my truck out of the parking lot.

Yeah that is the dates of the Bronco Event.... We'll be going a few days early and staying a day or two later. I might have an extra seat for a day or two if Tammy decides to stay at camp on hard trail days :) You gotta take your rig on some of the more full size friendly trails: Hell Revenge, Fins N Things, etc.. ;)

Cool, I'll push for those dates. I'll do the runs. I've been on Hell's Revenge and some "Spider" trail ...... that was really long. I was in/driving Kevin's 1350 on 395 tires so my little 365s will change some of the lines.....possibly. Looking forward to it. Going to try and find some not too used front replacement springs for my truck. Mine are tired.....

My buddy is staying in Moab Rim Campground south end of town. I haven't booked yet but plan on talking with him tonight to figure out what spot he's in and try to reserve tomorrow. I'll keep you posted. We stayed at the KOA campground this September. That is a pretty nice campground as well and not to far away if Moab Rim is full. The North end of town was getting repaved and Slick Rock Campground was pretty full in Sept.

I would love to join and give TMog a good stretch of its four legs. But alas, he's still in the back of my shop for major suspension, electrical and fuel system work, waiting progression on my Expedition G project (that is on hold until i get my shop build completed). Project, projects...projects. It never ends :p

HA! Some of the scratches on his Unimog are FROM the last time he and I went to Moab and he gave her a little nap on Rocker Knocker ;) Those are the trips you remember though! (y)

Looks like we will be getting there on the 18th of April....Sunday and leaving on the 24th of April....Saturday. Staying at Sand Flats Rec area. Basecamp out of there and trail runs as decided. Camping is $15 per night with extra pay for trailers. Two rigs per spot and 5-6 people included. No water or showers. We'll see how it goes. I'll be driving down from Montana on the 18th early if anyone wants to caravan.

That might be doable... I'd rather hang out with the Unimog crowd then a bunch of broncos :) Plus I couldn't find a space anyway...

Do you have to reserve at that campground or is it first come first serve? Hopefully we can get everyone in the same area.

First come first come. Sunday seems like a big turn-over night. I won't be in until early evening at best.......mog speed you know. I was thinking about towing it down, but, I don't have a semi.

I spoke to Terry yesterday and he was interested. I think that K.S. will be bringing his 1350 also.

We are still on for April. I've read/heard that Moab is still being "interesting" for events because of the China Virus. Non "real" events look fine. We'll see more as it gets closer.
