Here are some related questions from last year, and some of my comments with some of what's included...What is included in the registration fee? Trails are free!!!:wave:
I cannot remember is the fee per person or per vehicle?
I can't say for sure how they'll do it this year, but for the past four years (I missed 2007, cause we didn't get Sandi till 2008) there's been a primary fee for the driver and then a smaller fee for each passenger (adults I think). The wording is always that the fee for the driver covers vehicle/trails registration, tee-shirt and catered meals, and that the fee for the passenger covered the catered meals.
So what does the $160 registation fee pay for? It seems like a lot, but if it is pays for a lot and is worth the price, then i'd be happy to pay for it.
unless they change it up this year...
* Catered meals on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday evenings
* A 'goodie bag' with neato stuff
* An FJ Summit t-shirt
* Other things I'm forgetting
* The best event with the greatest organization and the coolest participants in one of the most beautiful places in the world. :cheers:
If you're looking for a precise dollar-for-dollar expense tracker, I can't help, and if it matters that much, you might be better off saving the money, and putting it toward your cable bill (I mean, you can see all kinds of great places on there, and never have to pay anything or go anywhere), but from my perspective (this will be my fifth Summit), it's definitely worth it. :bigthumb:
That's the thing though, it's all subjective.
However, I bet, if they did a survey, the ones that agree with me (on this question) would in the 90%+ area.
Probably more so than the registration fee, I would want to know if it's worth spending the money on gas to drive to the Ouray from where I'm coming from .....a much larger amount of money, for sure.
I hope you make the journey, and I hope you end up agreeing that it's worth it. I'll check back here after the Summit to find out... :cheers:
Yeah, SLC or Elko, NV seemed like stopping points for a 2 day drive SLC being prolly the better option so the 2nd day drive is shorter.Salt Lake City? Just a guess as I've never been. I was going to go this year but changed my mind because of fuel and lodging costs so we went to Eastern Oregon instead. It was suggested to meet in SLC as a caravan from the NW. Don't forget your John Denver CDs. ocr14a will loan you his if you do.
This will be my first summit if nothing prevents me from going between now and then. Really, looking forward to getting out there and meeting some of the ppl in the FJ community and ride some awesome trails. Anyone make the journey from the east coast before? If so any pointers? Any pointers in general about Summit?

nykbrad, post up on the Midwest forum section if you guys are going. We're looking to get a semi to haul the trucks out there.There will be a few of us from the NKY/Cincy area. Can't wait!!
Holy crap! Now that's a cool idea.....if it's feasible. So, have you guys actually looked into it yet to find out how much something like that would cost? If it's same (or even a little more) than the gas money it would take to do the drive, it's a no-brainer to keep the miles off the FJs.nykbrad, post up on the Midwest forum section if you guys are going.

I've drooled over the photos for the last several years and Lord willing I'll be there :clap: and will drive out if I have to!!
Are you kidding me ? :mecry: Leave Cincy on Sat the 13th and wheel in Moab with me on Mon the 15th and Tues the 16th. :bigthumb:Hiring a Semi sounds pimp! But even though I only get 10-12 mpg, I am looking forward to seeing the country on the drive...you know, half the journey is getting there... My legs and back won't get stiff having to stop every 2 1/2 hours! I hope to convoy with some others from my area, and possibly pick some more up on the way.I plan on heading out on the 15 or 16, will decide when it gets closer.
