Moab Summer 2013

Recommended Posts

Start saving your pennies, we're goin to Moab!! I figure since its still like 7 months away, you guys can figure out what needs to be done in order to make the trip. There are a few of us that have started the idea via instagram, but it'll just be easier to get a running dialog on here. Obviously, the dates are waaay up in the air, so feel free to chime in and let us know what works or doesnt work. I'm pretty flexible, (and only 3 hours away), but will be more than happy to be the lead on this end of things.

 

ROLL CALL!!!!!!

Summer? Moab? HOT!

 

I have been talking to a buddy about a possible run to Moab in 2013. No idea about dates so I am just subscribing to the thread.

I'm going with NAXJA for the 30th anniversary event the 8-12th of October. Went for the 25th in 08 and had an awesome time. Moab is an awesome place, you'll have fun no matter when you go.

Subscribing. I havent been to Moab since the N fall fling in 04. Next year would be a good time to go back. I'm flexible on dates as well, but I'm not interested in burning to a crisp!!!!

If all goes according to plan, I should be moved out to New Mexico by then, so I will definitely be joining this if nothing goes wrong.

nice!! maybe i will start a 'running tally' on who is a definite yes and who is a maybe. So far, I am in, sounds like Backdraft is in, Dirteatr717 is in, and 87Warrior and drcomanche are maybes. Plus i know a few local guys that will be down for a Moab trip (both MJs and non MJs)

Whenever we get around to picking a date, I'll have to leave NY about a week before that, while I'm heading out west I might as well bring basically everything from fishing poles to my longboard and maybe my snowboard and make a stop at a glacier in CO hahah

For some it's just a trip to Moab, for me and a couple buddies it's a cross country roadtrip exploring and being complete tourists until we arrive at Moab! Can you tell I'm excited?

thats the way to do it. when i moved from MA to UT, i did the 2700+ mile drive in 3 days. It sucked. the middle states arent called the 'fly-over' states for nothin' haha. but if you plan the right route, it would be a blast. def take your time, do your homework, and set yourself up for a sweet roadtrip!!

I was thinking late July into august, even though it'll be hot I'll just drive across the desert highways doorless :D so if I leave NY July 26th and take a week to get out to Moab that'd be Friday August 2nd for a weekend at Moab! Is that alright for you guys?

thats gonna be one of the hottest times down in Moab. Like....'wheel at night, stay in the shade/go swimming during the day' kinda hot. there is NO shade out on the trails; its like wheeling in a parking lot. no shade, and the sun heats up the rock so much that youve got heat comin back up at you...
