The plan would be to leave early Wednesday and drive most of the way, stopping a couple hours shy of Moab.  That gets us there early Thursday morning with better ability to snatch spots and not trying to do it Wednesday night in the dark.  I wouldn't be opposed to leaving Tuesday though.  Early doesn't need to be 0400 but before 0900 like we left last year.  If you come up with us, there's no need to meet us here, we could meet at the Walmart in Fallon (we'll need fuel by then) or anywhere really.

...you know like Widow Maker and the death launch on Moab Rim.

Trying to make mine Pritchett-capable.  It had gotten a bit much for my TJ on 35s but hopefully an LJ on 37s is enough.  Will need to see how Jeep is doing and how driving a stick is going for me though.

So is the plan to leave on Wednesday and get there on Thursday?  I’m just trying to figure out what I can work out. Weather to go up with you guys and leave early or show up late and come home with you.
I'm traveling solo from the south... so driving alone not that big a deal. I'd rather have a buddy riding along or course, but it is what it is. Dave will be meeting me there and Will will be meeting there by the weekend. If it suits your work better to only take off that 3rd week, then meeting us there works fine. Like we said... we can save you a spot or you can have mine since I will be moving over to the rental w/Dave and Will on the weekend.

I'm ok with that too. Figured if I'm gonna set up a tent, may as well have it for a couple days.  :biggrin:

I like that spot we stayed last year overnight on the drive down. I agree with Tim, being closer in the AM is way better. Side question, I know the side by sides can get an OHV reg. for the road, can buggies get the same providing they have al the required lighting.

I didn't read all this, but it may answer your questions.

I don't know either.  There used to be signs up around some of the trail, like Hells Revenge, saying specifically that vehicles on the roadway had to be registered for road use.  The link Doug gave has good info, it would look like as long as it has all the requirements including insurance for street use it would be good.

I would imagine you would need to get a non-resident sticker or permit.

Are you asking for the CJ or something else?

Anywho… started a thread in the JF YJ forum in case some of those guys we missed last year can make it.

I know it a long ways off as far as chatting about trails, but I was playing around on google earth and found a trail off 313 called Hell Roaring Rim Trail. It's not in my second edition book. Wondering if it's in the 3rd?  Never heard of it. I was just looking for easy stuff to do the first couple days before everyone gets there. Thinking Schafer switch backs b/c I've never done them and then found this one.   :cheers2:

I see RR4Wheelers have expanded their trails list. It's on it but not very descriptive. Not in 3rd edition.

A friend who wants to go is trying to get his buggy completed by then. If he can he would prefer to drive it to the trails rather than tow it. it will be "Green Stickered" here at home. Looking at the link Doug posted it doesn't look like it will be too much trouble.

Has anyone done White Rim trail. Looks really long, but some different scenery. I guess it starts off Schaffer switch backs?  Wondering if it can be done in a day?  :dunno:

Looks easy enough to drive the truck instead the Jeep.

Pretty sure that is an over-night distance requiring a permit. Depending on spring rainfall there could be some challenging washouts. We've never driven it farther than Muscleman Arch I think it was.

Yeah off the Arch spot on Schaeffer.  I read (maybe in the Moab book) that it's a minimum 2 day and permit required.  I'm pretty certain that you can see parts of the trail from the overlook in Canyon Lands.

Oh well. Maybe better just do muscleman and back then. Maybe even a hike to Corona arch on the way back?  :cheers2:

The switchbacks are definitely on the easy side, we ran that trail two years ago in Sean's truck after I broke my shit.

Not that it's not worth doing, it's certainly scenic and you skip the admission gate to Canyonlands, it's a good sight seeing day.

That's why I said it was kinda related.  I didn't order it either, but it would be a good thing to carry.
