All of them :D

I didn't make Moab because of work this year, and I've been wanting to do CO for a few years now so I'll be there, wherever it is. ;)

I voted Moab. Origionally I voted CO in the other poll but the more I thought about it the more I think Moab would be the best for a few reasons. First, alot of the "base camps" for a CO run are small towns (IE Ouray, Leadville, Buena Vista/Salida) and do not have large parking lots, or many decent choices for lodging or food sometimes. Second, in alot of places the Colorado trails are spread over a large area with alot of highway driving to get to some. I love to go to CO for wheeling and I have organized/ helped organize many runs there. I think for the best showing of all sizes of Explorers Moab would be the best because there is trails for everyone, and plenty of lodging choices. Plus as 410 said it is the mecca of 4 wheeling.

It would probably come down to either Tellico or Paragon for the east.

Not to be a pest in this thread, but there is another place we haven't been to in the East yet. Windrock. Just to through another place out there for an east coast run.

I'm not voting yet because I can't decide between Colorado or Moab, but I'd like to know exactly what HAS been decided so far.

Thanks for the email notice on this poll, I gotta spend more time with the PC...
I am totally into the 10th anniversary run...The place is not that important to me because I am going to have to log a lot of miles to get there anyways....Next spring or summer would be great and would give some of us time to squirrel away enough money to make it an extra good time.. :D

No offense... but I think that hasn't been addressed.... although, it brings a good point; anyone? Are we looking at Apr to June or later?

I dont care if its Colorado or Moab so I vote for both. :D

Becker and Arsoul, If its Moab it would probably be late May or early June because of the heat. If its Colorado it would probably be after June because of the snow.
I just know I wouldn't make it all the way out to truckhaven, its 1200 miles to Moab from Dallas, but then it's only 4 hours from Aspen. :p

I'm not voting but i'm going to try to make it to where ever this run is. I don't want to hit Tellico again for the east coast run, but i've been itching to come out west to wheel.

Plus i've already gave my wife (who is due in april) pre warning that i'm headed out your way next year for wheeling and she didn't seem to upset with the idea, that's good!

well you miss a few days and BAM everything has changed, I would love a CO run but as Brian1 said it is kinda sparse, so my vote would be Moab!

No reason really, i love it there. I should have reworded that to say i'd like to try another place before i went back to tellico. I have no problem with going back there though.

Ok, Moab it is for the Western States 10th Anniversary run.

Here's the date. May 13-14 2006. I have researched what's going on in town and found this to be about the only time we can get in to our favorite campgrounds and hotels.

I hope everyone who wants to go can make it on this weekend.

I will be starting a Moab 2006 thread shortly.
