Default CruiserFest 2013 - Anyone coming out?

Anyone planning to attend CruiserFest next month? Full details are here:
http://cruiserfest.com/

This year will feature two different convoys traveling off-road to the event, one from the south (Moab) and one from the north (Idaho). We had a great group of Rising Sun members on last years run coming from Moab. Anyone planning to make it out this year? Coming on one of the overnight runs?

Man, I wish! Work gets in the way far too often. Maybe I should retire...but then I wouldn't have the funds to do my cruiser projects. Have a great event, Kurt!

seriously thinking about it. their fees per rig are outrageous tho and on top the the fortune for fuel (and the fact that we'd be bringing two rigs) and money's already tight right now as i have car ins due, four birthdays and christmas to deal with.

Come on out here!

A fortune? For $105 a couple gets 4 meals, free camping (grass, showers, restrooms, etc), upto 4 days of guided trail rides and classes and dynamic events on the off-road course. Honestly it's a really fair deal imo. Make no mistake I think everyone wishes it was cheaper but this was never designed to be a money maker and the Miller group kicks in a tremendous chunk to make it happen.

not if you're in two rigs, then it's $60 per rig and we can't do the wheeling before hand, we can only do fri evening to sun am. and then i have to figure about $400-500 per rig in fuel

i don't see where tshirts and a couple meals costs that much.

trust me, i want to be there to see the museum, which i'm sure is kick ass and to hang with everyone

Four catered meals, insurance, permits and staff costs. I get the absolute bargain isn't there if you don't run trails but compare it to any other LC event and scratch the trails and it is the best deal rolling. Neither here nor there, I didn't set the price tag and I don't see a dime for any of it either... I just enjoy seeing the event continue to grow.

^ this. Hoping to get out there one of these days. Anything planned? I'm hoping to do a COBDR UTBDR loop too.
