    I was checking out camp sites for Moab, and I noticed a few places offer group camp sites. Sizes range from 20 to 200. I think this would be a cool way to go. Everybody could hang after the days events, and not be spread who knows how far. Plus it is cheaper and you don't have to worry about getting a place to crash on your own. What do you guys think?

    Mike.

    Sounds cool Mike. I still don't know if it will be trailered in or driven. Although August in Moab sounds like no doors or tailgate.[​IMG]

    I would be willing to make the arrangements. I would need to know how many want in on it, so we could get the correct sized site. Pre payment might be needed, I don't, I'd have to check on that. I just wanted to see how many people would be interested.

    Mike.

    YYYYEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!
    I'm in on that too! I had just planed on wingin it after rolling in. I have never been there so have no clue which camp site would be the closest/best location to pick?? At Blazer-Fest in Calif. we take over a group camping area and that works out GREAT!! We had more than one camp fire going and it was like a mini neighborhood. Kinda neat to walk around and hang out with al the different groups and listen to the campfire stories while bummin a brew[​IMG]hehehe
    Mabie someone better verify we can have campfires???

    I like the idear of a group campsite... Keep all the real men (or women) in one spot [​IMG] (j/k if yer stayin in a fancy pants hotel)

    I'd rip the doors off at moab in case of rain or snow or a windstorm that hurls a lot of dirt at you...

    group camp sounds like a good idea... heck, we could even split out by state contingency to some extent, and have raids on the other states, and steal thier flags.... err wait... thats in scouts.... err thats a bad example that I never set....

    at any rate, my plans were to throw an air mat in the back of my suburban, and wherever I parked it at would be called home for the night. of course, group campsite would allow me to stow some gear out of the truck, and not have to worry about things coming unstrapped, and flying around.

    I'm waiting to hear back from Steve to make sure he doesn't already have something in the works for us.

    Sounds like a great idea Mike! I'm still a maybe but this would be a great place to stay when I convince myself that I have the funds to be there :)

    I'm interested. I'd be wiling to prepay for a spot of dirt with my name on it somewhere before I got to Moab! :-)

    Ok I got the go ahead from Steve, so tommarrow I will be making some phone calls to a few of the sites that take groups and have the nicer amenities. Not all list rates for groups, which is why I have to call, But the ones that do are around $5 per person. So if you, your wife, and your three kids are coming (that would be me) then it would cost you $25 dollars a night. Also I noticed on some that they charge for extra vehicles. I think it was also $5 per extra vehicle. I don't know if this applies to trailer'd vehicles, but it is something to keep in mind. I will try to get around this if possible. So if all of you that are interested would reply and let me know how many in your party, and how many vehicles that would help me get started.

    Thanks,
    Mike.

    181 days to Moab, are YOU ready!
