4-24-18 Bonnie on Schafer Switchbacks.jpg
OK, a picture. Bonnie at bottom of Schafer Switchbacks today. She is on 2 wheels this trip, but she owns a Ural. Does this count?

Re: Spring in Moab 2018

Did Onion Creek, Thompson Canyon, Polar Mesa, to La Sal Mtn Loop Road into Spanish Valley in Moab. All but the south 10 miles has been replaced, with 2 long sections of graded gravel waiting for asphalt. O in creek is always scenic. Thompson Canyon is it too rough but there are 2 or 3 dry short stee...

Re: Spring in Moab 2018

Was 35F last night, supposed to be 40F tonight, not much warmer, at least above icing. Other than Friday, warmer days ahead in the forecast for Moab, with lows around 50, highs in the mid 70s coming. Tested the Tiger out on Hurrah Pass today, hot Moab diner and grocery shopping on way back to RV. Sa...

Re: Spring in Moab 2018

I am making my way to Moab. Arriving April 17, but without my friends, life threw a curveball at me. I was in Phoenix for a week, then Page, AZ, now in Zion for 3 nights. Trying canyoneering tomorrow then exploring some of the dirt roads around the edge of the park. Hopefully the roads stay clear Tu...

Re: Spring in Moab 2018

This weekend will take delivery of our new RV, a 25ft sprinter chassis type Winnebago View 24D. Karen, my SO, is actually excited about it. Considering she only spent 3 nights in my truck campers over 4 years, her retirement has changed her outlook. Plus these new ones are pretty spacious and comfy ...

Re: Spring in Moab 2018

I am planning to attend this year. Shopping now for a suitable diesel 24ft motorhome. Debating on boon docking or campground. Likely boon docking since I do not have a RV yet. I am taking April 1 through October 31 off work. I now live and work in Florida but have a home on Camano Island north of Se...

Re: Spring in Moab 2016

The mountains are likely covered in snow. The lower roads under 9,500ft have been snow free in my experience. Can do a loop up there several ways. The book has a few. Do not expect to go over the 10K+ passes though. You could do some up and back turning around at the snow line.

Re: Spring in Moab 2015

Well I am not going to make it after all, almost pulled it off. At work now, enjoy your rides. I may end up with the month of May off so could get my riding in then.
