I'm stoked for 2006 :D

01-02-2006, 09:46 PM
BTW- I'll turn in my volunteer form, but I am happy to gun one or two if you need me to.

I am picking trails that Rachel can do on her own in her 4runner

Thur - Elephant Hill
Fri - Fins and Things
Sat - Wipe Out Hill

I would be happy to change the order of Fri and Sat if that helps with assignments. I wanted to do Elephant Hill Thursday because its a long day and I want to get it out of the way early.

I also will volunteer to help with the dinner, registration or what ever else you need. Both Rachel and Sarah will be there as well and I think they both could help with registration and selling stuff. In fact, I would really like it if they could help at both regsitration and the dinner.

Thought I would post this because I can't make it to the meeting this week, on a Business trip.

So what's up with the multiple camping in rv spots.. Is it going to happen? I think we need to let folks on MUD and other places know what's up with Spanish Trail RV with regards to camping, RV,'s etc. Esp with the change.

Can someone recommend some trails for me? I ran fins and kane creek last year and rode along on behind the rocks and wipeout hill.

I would also like to know where we are with the campground. All we are asking for is the ability to have multiple tents in the RV spots at a resonable price.

Hey "Stumpy",
Wes is right on with his recomendations. One of my favorite trails is Metal Masher also, optional obsticles are a kick in the butt! If your not going out early I suggest leaving Sat open and go out on an outlaw run! :eek:

Just downloaded the stats from PayPal. 20 people have paid their registration fees for CM2006. That's in three days since the form went live.

FYI, we'll accept ~160 paid registrants this year.

as I mentioned at the last meeting, I have all of the topo maps for utah, including the national park set. I would think that these would be useful for the event, and we could also actually gps route them for future knowledge.

Rzeppa mentioned a "members only" area to post the information, but I don't have the double secret password yet.

I am open to other options as well. Nudge nudge wink wink

I am open to other options as well. Nudge nudge wink winkThe Charles Wells Moab trail guide has GPS waypoints for all the trails we do. I also have a set of really nice laminated topo maps I got a couple years ago, can't remember the publisher: the maps are packed away right now due to my in-progress home remodeling. It's kind of like moving: half my stuff is in boxes :-(

Webmaster Wes will have to enable your username for the members-only area. There's no "secret" password, it is a matter of his configuring the forum software to allow certain usernames access to certain areas. There are also areas for Cruise Moab committee members and for Rally committee members. When you log in, all areas for which you have been given permissions will simply show up along with the public areas: general, trip report, for sale and land use.

My recollection was that we voted you in at the December meeting, but you didn't have an application to submit (you said Bill Morgan had it?). We also will need dues. I'm sure Wes can get you access in the mean time. We trust you, but I do need that application so I can get you entered into the roster.

I normally wait til Jeff add's the person to the roster.Yes, this was an unusual situation in that he was voted in, but no dues or application. Normally that stuff is all done at the same time.

I will admit, I seldom update and upload the roster the instant any new member is voted in. Typically I save the info and then update approximately quarterly, or when requested (Stevinson).

Since my computer crashed, I haven't reinstalled either excel or acrobat so I couldn't do it instantly anyway. I am planning to buy XP and upgrade my OS, so I'm waiting on that before I bother to reinstall a lot of my apps.

Just downloaded the latest from PayPal -- we have 31 registrants for CM2006 so far. We launched the online registration on Jan. 2, so that's about 9 days. We'll register ~160 vehicles this year, so we're almost at 20%.

Of course, that's not counting those who will be sending in their registrations via snail mail.

Elephant hill is really scenic and is alot of fun with Cheesman at the helm. Should be doable stock with 31's A couple spots you might drag.

Definatly fins and things, again some dragging , and maybe porcupine rim?

I promise I won't hold bad suggestions against you unless you suggest something like metal masher :eek:Basically you've been getting pretty good advice. I've done the following in a bone stock (open diffs, stock gears, stock suspension, etc.) FJ40 on 31s:

Elephant Hill
Fins & Things
Steelbender

Porcupine Rim is pretty easy too. We're doing a new trail this year called Chicken Corner that's supposed to be rated 2, which would be easier than anything we've run in the past.

The biggest thing I would suggest for you to do for your wagon is get some rocker protection. Sliders are some of the easier things to fab for really cheap and they're pretty important for wagons. Probably about $30 worth of steel and a rattle can of paint and you're good to go. In fact I even saw on the LCML today where there's free 1/4" thick by 3" to 5" diameter tubing for free in the Denver area. I don't have a bender and notcher though, so whenever I build stuff it's with square tubing or c-channel :-)

:eek: it just scares me! :eek:I'll tell you the truth, the first time I went to Moab my first trail scared the cr@p out of me. Before I went, I was apprehensive. Then-Rising Sun Commander and wheeling-mentor Rob Merideth counseled "pick your lines, it's more driver than rig". He was totally right. You don't need a built-up rock crawler point-and-shoot rig to have fun on these trails.

And speaking of mentors, our trail leaders are among the best there are. They (we) will help spot you through whatever the obstacle is. One of the coolest things about Rising Sun and TLCA is how we help each other out, it's about learning from each other.

We're doing a new trail this year called Chicken Corner that's supposed to be rated 2, which would be easier than anything we've run in the past.

Chicken Corners is a really scenic route, over Harrah Pass, and over to the river. It's easy for the vehicles, but maybe not as easy for the drivers (that's where the name comes from). The first Chicken Corner, is a driving Chicken Corner. There's a big dropoff to the right, to the Colorado River.

The second Chicken Corner, the "original" Chicken Corner, is a walking Chicken Corner.

Let's see if I have a pic...

Here's a shaky pic of my old dog Bear, on the walking Chicken Corner...

As of yesterday, Jan. 24, we have 61 people who have registered for Cruise Moab using the online registration. This does not count the people who have sent in their paper registrations by mail. We will likely accept ~160 registrants, although we are still discussing this with the BLM (we may be allowed fewer this year).

It's going to be a great year. I just talked with one of the guys who is organizing the FJ Cruiser trail team. They are planning to have four FJs on the trail every day (on four different trails every day so they will allow as many people to check them out as possible!)

I like to camp up sandflats road. $6 per night. It it rustic camping. Throne bathrooms surrounded by wood barriers. It about 10-15 minutes away from the main group. There are hot showers halfway between the 2 for about $5. It is up away from the highway and the views at sunset are second to none. I typically camp in cluster G or H. It's near Fins and things, Hells revenge, porcupine rim, not to mention Slickrock trail if you're a mtb'er. A little night wheeling is usually in order. We have kids, so don't stay up too late partying. (9:30 is about as late as we stay up) There are about five rigs that are camping there together. PM me if you want to join us

Not allow dogs? Who'd a thought that - I'd like details on what areas don't allow them - planning on bringing mine as others are i'm sure.

Elephant Hill - nope. No dogs allowed. This is the only trail that we run that is inside a National Park. Can't even have them in your vehicle.

Not sure about the others. The Sand Flats Recreation Area may have some restrictions, I think. It may just be leashes req'd at all times. We run Fins & Things, Hells Revenge, and Porcupine Rim in this area.

The rest of the trails are fine for dogs.
