    Not sure yet if we’re going to be able to make the trip or not next year, but, as a precautionary measure, I’ve booked a campsite for the 8th-13th.

    Interesting.

    I received an Email From the DOI/BLM.

    "Hello Moab Event Permittees:

    The county is requesting we provide a 5-year out calendar of events for all our event permittee holders. This is to insure we are not doubling-up event dates and/or over-booking venues, etc.

    Please provide us with your event dates through 2025 by next Wednesday, October 28th so we can meet the required deadline and your event dates can be secured."


    Sent them this.

    Blazer Bash 2021 will be September 10th - 12th.
    Blazer Bash 2022 Will be September 9th - 11th

    Just creating more barriers to entry. Making it hard for new events to start I mean.

    Shhhhhh!

    Blaming it Grand County. I know we are good with BLM until then and we are a priority.

    We are also the longest continuous running event in Moab now.

    I really want to get out to this event with you guys and I finally feel like my truck is ready. I'm just trying to get feel for the logistics of it.

    Does everyone stay at this Moab rim campark?

    If there isn't any cabins left what else is close to it? I'm not much for camping anymore. (I haven't tried calling Moab rim to see if they have any cabins yet.)

    I assume that there's room for pull truck and trailer parking at the cabins? and how much? I'm hoping to talk 1 or 2 buddies to bringing a rig along also. I hate to make the drive from Wisconsin to Utah alone.

    Also how much road driving is involved to get to the trails from camp? My rig is roadworthy, (barely). It also runs on propane so I'm just trying to get a feel for how much fuel I need to bring or if I can get tanks fill out there somewhere? I run 2- 8gallon tanks onboard and have 6 tanks total. Usually I can run a day of slow trail riding on just over a tank. If the travel get more spirited or there's open road higher speed driving it tends to like its fuel.

    I know, lots of questions and I have more but I'll stop there for now. Thanks all for any input or advice.

    Lots of campgrounds, most of them have pull through for RV and trailer parking. A lot of us commune one area just so we can BS after the trails

    Most of the trails have trailer parking areas, and propane is available

    Man, I really want to make this as a goal. Anyone else from Texas making the trek? maybe link up and caravan there? I want to say my truck will be street legal, but I don't know if I'd trust it for 1200 miles of highway driving, so Id have to find a trailer... Moab has always been a bucket list item for me.

    Forgive my Newb question:

    Do we need OHV stickers/registration? Looks like as of January 2020 there is no reciprocity with other states.

    I haven't needed one on any of the places I've been. But in texas they're all private land. this will be my first ride on public land.

    Like Wes said on the sticker. Whether you trailer it or not, all of the insurance items will also apply
