Moab the week before, or after, Ouray?

Just a thought from someone who's interrest often exceeds his ability to go do the wheeling....

I also will be doing Moab with whichever FSJers are going. Preferably a week or two after the EJS. I was there for that this year and there's just too much trail traffic. Seeing all the cool Jeeps around town isn't enough to outweigh the inability to do the trails you want.

Maybe we need to get a seperate thread going for the Moab trip. Sounds like Matt wants to go 2 weeks after EJS. Doesn't matter to me either way. I know that Colin wants to go (with us this year!), you, Matt, Shimniok, myself... meet Flinty out there... We could crowd up all the trails we want to with FSJ's!

I will start a thread under "EVENTS" and PM Colin and let him know that I have posted it so he is in the loop. I will edit this post with the link to the Moab thread in case any utahun's, arizonan's, new mexican's, etc, want to join in.

I am definately going to both Ouray and Moab this coming summer. I can't wait!

Our trip itinerary (vague at this point) should put us in Mancos for Monday night and we can head to Ouray with the rest of the clan on Tuesday. We will be leaving Glacier on Sunday... two long driving days should do it... we haven't planned the exact route yet but I believe it includes Hwy 666.

Michael wants to go a week after EJS, which ends on Easter Sunday April 8, 2007 I presume. So I guess that would mean we'd head out there on Sunday the 15th or Monday the 16th and stay until we all break or are broke. I don't really want to go to Moab in the summer. My A/C works okay on the road, but not so great on the trail...

UGGGG!!!!! Why do I need to live 1886 miles away! I figure at 2.25 per gallon and 10 miles per gallon that would cost me about 900.00 for gas alone just to get to Ouray and back, and then food, gas while in Ouray, lodging, plus my time (29.7 hours) to get there - according to MapQuest. Middletown, PA 17057 to Ouray, CO.
Maybe some year!

his rig is a Wagoneer in the real sense! Don't let him fool you with his mock up on big axels and stuff, it still has a mattress in the back...

FSJ-EARL, I hear you loud and clear.

I have been wanting to make Ouray for a couple of years now, and it looks like 2007 may be a reality FINALLY!
My Jeep is all but done and I think it would make the trip and back no problem!
Iv always wanted to drive accross the US in a Wag, now I have the perfect reason/trip ~ so... Im saving and planning to make it in 07

Lets hope gas is $2.25 or lower next summer

I have sent email to Dave & Deb to hold OF1 (for Flatbackdragon) and 45-50 tent sites. This will be 13 tent sites and one camper site. We'll see if we get them.
