    That music festival is always there at the same time.

    They've tried to put stuff in the park on the day we reserve it. Pretty cool on the city staff in Moab, they called me and asked if it was for us and when I told them no they had it removed right away. Good to know they're looking out for us.

    Scott- it's been some time since you wrote this. Have you you got your plans set in stone as of yet? Melissa and I will be in Moab early as well. We have a hand full of things we would like to do as well, but would like to catch up and hit a trail or two with you and others before the event, if that's alright. My bucket list of trails seems to match as Moab Rim and Cliffhanger are ones I've got to do. And like you, I've done Golden Spike, but but did the last 1/3 on tge hook. So I really need a do-over.

    Is anyone else arriving early in the week before the event?

    We'll be there. I'd be glad to take a small group on the run I did last time (Where Eagles Dare, Golden Spike, Gold Bar Rim, Poison Spider)

    For certain we are running Cliffhanger on Wednesday. Thursday we are doing an easy day running into Canyonlands Nat'l Park to drive the Shafer Switchbacks and then out of the park on Potash Rd (I think that's the name of it). Those are the only concrete plans we have. We'll also do a "tourist" trip into Arches one of the days. We haven't been to the nat'l parks in quite a few years now.

    10-4 on the above! We are planning a rafting trip on Tuesday, Arches hiking trip on Monday. Cliffhanger on Wednesday sounds great. @r3dd0g your run sounds great too! And I've heard suggestions of Moab rim for a night run. Looking forward to catching up with all of you again!

    I'll be in on Thursday mid day, really want to run fins and possibly test my bump stops at the dunes.

    Really lame compared to what you guys are doing.

    We'll be there Wednesday, we're camping at area BFE Wed-Thu nights and we have an Airbnb in town Fri-Sat-Sun nights. I imagine I'll probably just play around at area BFE on Thursday, though Fins n Things would be fun.

    Too much rear overhang. I'm too cheap to rent a car.

    I will put the Jimmy on the lift when I get back from Phoenix on the 4th.

    We should arrive in Moab on Wednesday. After the long drive, I'll probably just check the truck, make a few calls for work, and check out the brew pub in town.

    Looking forward to it!

    Me thinks that you have some weird obsession that old K5 needs to be beat on....
    I told you that I be a rookie, and I never wanted to attempt every vertical surface around, but keep giving me crap! I can handle it!
