    If you don't already have a room reserved, you should get that done asap, and then cancel if you decide you aren't coming... Pete
    Thanks for the Info Pete. I've got a room at the Red Cliff Lodge. I'm just hoping that I can get Floyd 'Done' in time! It's looks promissing... I will register for the Rally etc as soon as I can. Pivnic

    I'm new to the Rally. I see a lot of information regarding lodging but does anyone stay in the numerous campgrounds in the area? Does anyone know what the first-come-first-served availability of campsites might be? Doesn't look like you can reserve any of them. I know from what I've read that the hotels book up quick with all the events in May. We have a little Jeep trailer with a roof top tent etc that I just finished building and I would love to use it. Also, I see some discussion about meeting up to caravan to the Rally. In case it can be worked out, I will most likely leave very early Friday morning from home in the mountains west of Colorado Springs and travel through Gunnison and Montrose up to I-70 at Grand Junction.

    Mike,

    I haven't used any of the nearby camping spots in the past, so I'm not sure what the odds are of finding a spot. The spots that you can see from the road between Moab and RedCliffs along the river always look full though. I would imagine that the farther out you get, the easier it is to find something. There is are places like the KOA that have spaces too...

    It might be worth calling the BLM about the camping availability, and what to expect. Here's a link with some info, if you don't already have it: http://www.discovermoab.com/campgrounds.htm

    Looking forward to seeing your Jeepster in Moab.

    Hey Dan, what a coincidence, your brother living across the street from me. I asked him if he would like to ride shotgun to Moab with us. No answer yet. Here's a teaser shot. See you soon.

    Mike, I'm digging the Jeepster. I've just started the build of a 48 Jeepster 4wd for my wife. Can't wait to meet you and check out your ride. As for camping we have stayed at the KOA at a previous Moab Rally. Nice facility and you can make reservations.

    Hello Pete,
    This will be our first time to Moab. I will need to trailer my '54 truck, as it gets only 7 mpg which causes me to fill up every 70 miles or so. (Not sure if there is enough gas stations along the route I am taken. hahaha)
    Question: Are there places to park a trailers, as well as the vehicle hauling the trailer out of the way of the event?
    Thanks,

    Alan,

    The Redcliffs Lodge has a large parking area, so parking your tow rig with trailer should be no problem.
