May - 20 - 22 - 2016 Moab, UT
Where did I miss that? :scratch:
Anyway, I put in for the time off.
Moab 2016 Roll Call
Realize this is a dormant thread, but thought I'd use it to list the current attendees for Moab 2016, as the other thread includes other 2016 events and runs throughout the U.S. Besides, I'm traveling for work this weekend and am bored...

Most are booked at Canyonlands Campground, with a few at KOA.
Anyone else? Just add onto this thread.... I'll add (or delete) as appropriate.
Less than 10 days until Moab!!!!!!
Looks good to me Paul! Come hell or high water it is going to be a great event!
I am currently a maybe. I have a few things to work out with work determining if I will make it.
What date is everyone planning on arriving/departing? I am thinking of arriving Wednesday evening the 18th. Then head home Monday morning the 23rd. Anyone else going to be there?
Lots of the PNW Crew will be there by the 15th, and I know a few others from their posts on the "20th Anniversary Thread" had mentioned being in Moab early.
Should be no shortage of RBVs available for runs by the 18th. . .
Stealing this from the other thread. . .
"This could be yours! ! ! "
I'm actually going in about 2 weeks. Gonna go hang out with a bunch of old full sized Jeep iron.
You forgot Hards01FX4spt (Howard) from Tacoma at Canyonlands
Arriving Thursday and leaving on Sunday, or Monday.
Oh and Dwight from Bonney Lake is coming down with us too. Not sure if he got a spot at Canyonlands or not
We will be arriving the 14th and leaving the 22nd. And my friend and boss, Grant, and his wife still say they are coming also.
[MENTION=763]Paul[/MENTION] I am at Canyonlands BTW.
Never too early to start talking about which trails to run, so I'll throw out a few that I'd be willing to lead over the weekend. I'm kinda of re-acquainting my wife to four wheeling, so the runs I plan on running are more or less in the "moderate" range. . .
Poison Spider Mesa (out and back, not with Gold Bar and Spike)
Fins and Things (Fee Area) Think this would a great Night Run for Friday
Top of the World
Any of the "Green" Trails (Chicken Corners, Hey Joe Canyon, etc.)
I wimped out of Hell's Gate in 2010 so I need redemption.
We got washed out of Kane Creek Canyon so more redemption there.
Gotta start reading trail descriptions.
Not sure about Pritchett Canyon :roll:
I will be arriving on Tuesday or sooner and I am game for the moderate+ trails
For decent trail descriptions:
(Scroll down to the Utah section)
Always the master of understatement. . .
I'll be there 14-22 and would love to give Poison Spider a go along with Hells Gate! Kane Creek was awesome last year, definitely a must for anyone willing to drag a truck up it!
I am planning on being there for Fri. and Sat. I'll be in the Bronco and hanging out with the stockers.
I am looking at:
Behind the Rocks
Fins and things Night run.
It will be good to see you again Mike.
I'm in for Behind the Rocks and Prichet. Anybody up for Rusty Nail?
Those sound like good choices to me, sign me up
