The site itself isn't too bad. The road from the highway to the camp is muddy and washed out a little.

Oh man. Not sure that our FJ's can handle some mud and washed out roads. Ha. Nothing better than putting it in 4wd getting into camp.

Re: OFFICAL Moab October 7th-11th 2015

I hope you guys have a good time there. Please check the weather and be careful though as I've been watching the weather site and a big area all around Moab has been in and out of Flash Flood Watches today and if it's raining hard even if it's not in the immediate are of Moab, it can still come roaring down some of those canyons and washes. Right now they have a Flash Flood Watch for a big part of Eastern Utah from north of Green River to well south of Moab and to the east into CO and to the west. Also to the West and SW of Moab there is a Flood Warning. Weather forecast calling for heavy rain tonight, tomorrow, and a little less tomorrow night. Stay safe and have fun.

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the campsite doesn't have any puddles or mud. Nala has a tendency to seek out and soak up any and all sources of water. Really don't want to be sleeping with a wet dog/mud monster the first night.

Re: OFFICAL Moab October 7th-11th 2015

Ok, so I am now confirmed for wheeling Saturday and Sunday. The 2 trails I was planning on running are Elephant Hill Saturday, and maybe something like Poison Spider Sunday. I'm fine leading either of no one else wants to.

There are 25 pages to read through, but is anyone else bringing a mtb? I'd love to sneak in a ride or two even if it's by lights in the morning or night. The trails right around where we camp can be fun (thinking Sovereign and Bar M wouldn't require driving, and Klondike is close by), and I'd be remiss if I didn't ride Cap'n Ahab.

Note: due to my trailer not being very washout friendly, we may not camp at the exact same spot as the group but we'll play that one by ear.

Edit: fark! http://www.nps.gov/cany/planyourvisit/pets.htm . Guess I'm not doing Elephant Hill.

National Parks are awful about dogs. That's why I just avoid them. Plenty of NGL land to explore without the stupid National Park restrictions.

Hey all,
Here is a link to the spot we should really try to get. It has an awesome spot to have a fire and plenty of space for rigs. It allows for double decker fires!

Ill be there tonight around 8
