MOAB 2018?

Post by Palm Springs Newbie » Thu Oct 26, 2017 4:09 pm

I see the discussions about preparing for the MOAB rally for 2018, but I haven't found information about when it is, course to be run, etc. Can someone relieve my ignorance either with a replay or a PM? My participation is something of a long shot but I have marvelous memories of whitewater rafting in that area and this might just get me off the dime.

DirtyDR is the one usually in charge of this gathering. Traditionally it occurs the week following the Moab Easter Jeep Safari. This year, the Jeep Safari goes from March 24 through April 1......so the Ural gathering should happen shortly after that.

Best to get in touch with DirtyDR on exact dates.

Before leaving Moab this past Spring several of us made reservations at Archview RV Resort and Campground for April 22 - 29th, so I’m assuming that we weren’t making a Big Mistake. DirtyDR will Confirm, I’m sure, if someone can find him.

And a couple of East Coasters have reservations at Archview for that week as well.

Possibly worth noting at this point, Archview is not renting tent camping spaces next year. There were still a couple of cabins available as of last week in addition to the RV spots.

I’m not sure that’s true, as I have a tent site reserved next April
