Somewhere being famous.
I will never make his event for 2 reasons.

1. My wife is in the middle of her work season and I refuse to take her dog with me.

2. I hate wheeling with crowds.

My brother goes to EJS every year. But he is a jeep guy who goes Jeeping with jeepers on jeep trails.:sign9:

Myself and a few buddies are going, but it looks like we're only bringing a couple of rigs to wheel.

I have found there is almost nothing available anywhere, and what there is is running at least $150 a night for hotel rooms, campsites are around $100 a night. I'm going to take my chances on a BLM campsite, I had good luck last year doing that, and the campground I was in wasn't even full.

I reserved a campsite at Kane Creek Campground for $35 a night. Going to sleep in the back of the Yukon tow rig. Getting in Sat night and leaving Thurs morning.

Edit: may have spoke too soon, booked online and then got a follow up email saying to contact the campground because they couldn't (more likely wouldn't) process my card, waiting to hear back from a voicemail i left them

Do we have to officially register for FSI runs somewhere or just show up? I snagged the last Kane Creek ride spot for Tues with Red Rock group when there wasn't a preplanned FSI ride going on. Planning on attending most if not all FSI events 25-28.

The FSI page on facebook is telling everyone to sign up before the run (the sooner the better) so they can have an accurate count for things like shirts and group counts.

Yeah, i went ahead and did that and signed up for a RR4x group run of Kane Creek on Tues when there's nothing else happening.

Please tell me more about the BLM campground in case this other one falls through.

There are several campgrounds in the area, and they're first come first served. Last year I got to my site about 1 pm Saturday before ejs and had plenty of choices.

Ok, good to go at Kane Creek. They still have spots available. It's $40 a night including tax if you book on booking.com and a little more if you book directly off the campground's website. That's for a deluxe camp site with trees and close by bath house.
