Moab April 11-13th

If any of you are planning to come to Moab, come that weekend I would discourage you from coming the next weekend because of Jeep Safari and Easter Weekend, Moab gets over run with college students and 4x4's and there are no hotels in town let a lone a place to lay a sleeping bag within a 75 mile radius. It's great to come and watch people destroy their jeeps but 40,000 people in a small town of normally 8,000 gets old really fast.
If anyone is coming down and wants to get together and ride with some of the locals let me know and you are welcome to join us.

I'll be there with the SLC group. I'm probably going to be camping up on Dry Flat. Is it hard to get a spot coming in on a Friday afternoon?
Hey Danny. Who's all coming still?

What kind of rides are planned for Moab? Site-seeing dirt roads or technical trails? Or both? I have never ridden there so don't know exactly what to expect. You know my preference.

KROBWR250- I would say most of the trails around here are single track and some are really techinical and some are just fast. So there is a little of everything out here. Cainville is one of the best places I have ridden in a long time. The soil is amazing there and the terrain is like nothing I have ever been on. If you have never been to Caineville it is worth the trip. There is a trail that goes around Factory Butte that is great. One minute you are on top of a narrow ridge and the next you are at the bottom of a wash trying to figure how you are going to get out. If you go to Caineville you may not make it to Moab! In regards to the Kokopelli, No I am not talking about the kokopelli it is more east of arches just on this west side of the Colorado and then it crosses the river and heads up into the La Sals. It is a great place to ride.

Yea I know, she says that I she told me a while back, she probably did. Anyway, I am going to try to get out a little bit this weekend, so we will see what happens.
There are a lot of bikes in town all ready this week. I must have passed 20-30 4-strokes and 2 strokes heading out for a trail this morning when I was going to work. There is a bunch of ATV's in town as well. If you are coming to town make sure your Registration is current. The Moab BLM is sporting a brand new JEEP that is lifted, and has clear lights on top so you don't realize it is the BLM until they are on top of you. I have been checked 3 times in the last two weeks. So they are out in full force so they can pay for it. We are going to go and do Kane Creek Wednesday at 5:00 if anyone is going to be in town and wants to go.
