Anyone interested in putting a 4 or 5 man team together? The dates are October 10 and 11. I will be heading out early on Friday the 9th and setting up camp in the afternoon.

I have some buddies that do this every year from REI and it is a blast. I am not looking to hammer or place just have a good time..

Behind the Rocks is Utah trust land and it is 12 miles south of Moab.

If you have nothing better to do and want to camp with us and run trails via your favorite 4x4 vehicle, camping is only $10.00 per night.

Here is the link and a few pics from when I did it a few years ago..

Very nice, Chris. We've done 7 of the 24 Hours of Moab, as far back as 1999. We are not fielding a team this time since we're a little burned out.

The infamous mud year of 2006...

Another from 2007

But, if you're interested, we are doing 24 Hours of the Old Pueblo in Feb and are looking for another 1 or 2 people to ride...

BTW, just another reminder to anyone, we have a standing Wednesday night ride that we've been doing for a bunch of years. Check out our little team's page.

Dave I heard about 2006, guys told me their tents were being swept away by the rain.

I think you passed me in 2007...man I was slow..

Just giving this a bump. I am headed to Moab this thursday afternoon. No team, so will ride the course on Friday and hang out for the event.
