This sounds like a great time. Is either weekend better than the other for any reason? I won't be able to be there for the whole week.

The first weekend there is not much going on as far as the group is concerned because we don't get there until Sunday afternoon.

We will probably do the BBQ on Wednesday evening maybe Thursday.

Friday is cruise night in town for all of the cars from the big car show so we all head in for Quesadillas and to hang and watch the cruisers. We have been known to do some cruising on our own also.

Saturday is the big car show in town and then a last trail ride before we start packing up to leave on Sunday morning.

Car show weekend if you can only do one.

Some of my family have asked if Urals come with social lives, I am thinking they do, we have met the nicest people with our Ural.

Will there be room for late arrivals, say April 28 or 29, to join the party and have some tent space? I do not think I can get away for a whole week, but would try to get there for a few days before last weekend - the carshow weekend is last one? - huh?

Comments?

There are usually tent sites at Archview but I have seen them all full before. The RV spaces will fill up because it is the car show weekend and they also raise the price for the weekend, supply and demand thing. Car show is always the last weekend in April so that is why I do it the week that I do, well that and the middle of April is when the mountains close and I am out of here for a week.

As far as we are concerned show up whenever you can and stay as long as you like. If you are just there for a couple of days you could probably find a place to throw your sleeping bag in somebody's bike trailer also.

Sidecars of SLO (San Luis Obispo) will have some folks joining this year. For all but 2 this will be a first. Any advice or suggestions appreciated.

Get your campground reservations as early as possible.
Don't drink too much the night before.
Make sure you fill up with gas before we leave in the morning.
Keep up with the crowd.
Make sure you are in the front of the line at the Quesadilla wagon Friday evening.

Great Bonnie, you can come ride with us while Milo and I take the Rokons out. I guess I will have to bring the Unicycles also.

Color us IN!

Myself and Solorider will be there with two Urals. We have RV site B13 reserved

Will arrive morning of 4/26 and plan to depart 4/29

Looking forward to it. This will be our first visit to Moab.

By the way, if there is anyone else from Texas that wants to join us to help share expenses, we can haul 3 Urals if need.
