Anyone going to Cruise Moab?
post up if you'll be attending the 2013 Cruise Moab this year..
April 30-May 5, 2013
i'll be heading out there with Jim from Tacoma Magazine and FJC Magazine.
we'll be out there covering for the magazines
most likely heading that way wednesday night and getting in early tuesday morning...or leave very early thursday morning
would like to meet up with fellow TWers if you'll be there
very nice...quite the journey for you
not sure how things like vendor night work and how/if they restrict access..so you could check that out while you're there if you wanted to
we're talking about taking some night runs on fins and/or hells while we're there if you wanted to meet up for a night run
i would imagine they would restrict the trail runs though to those registered for the trail...not to say you can't run the trail outside of the group..
i know ejs closes down the trail to others not part of the group, but they are muuuuuuch larger than cruise, so i don't think they have anything crazy like that in effect for the event
Registration is full so if you haven't registered yet, you're probably out of luck to run trails as part of the official event. You can still run trails on your own but will not have the support of the event groups.
The vendor night is open access and I think it's located at Slickrock Campground again. This is the main event HQ and vendors will have their displays etc set up along a couple of the center rows in the campground near the main pavillion/bathrooms building.
There are people staying at lots of different places in town for the event but the majority typically stay at Slickrock Campground. It's always fun to just go stroll through the campground in the evenings to talk to people and check out the different trucks.
yea i was up in the air still about camping there...doesn't seem like that good of a campground...sand flats or a blm spot along kane creek seems more up my alley
benefits would be having the central event location as your home base, but that can also be a drawback...
luckily kane creek and sand flats aren't that far from town making it easy to go to and from..
Kinda the same reason I'm not staying at BFE for the TW event. Just kinda like having my own space. If I feel like being around everyone I can roll in and hang out, if, not then I have my own place to go.
finally got my registration in today...
signed up for:
thursday - kane creek or chicken corners
friday - dome plateau or wipeout hill
saturday - elephant hill or hells
night run probably saturday due to the evening activities going on thursday and friday nights
then sunday planning on a top of the world trip on our way out of town
good deal..get a hold of me when you are down there...definitely looking to get the tacomas together for a photo shoot for the magazine at least
I plan to arrive the weekend before and sightsee/run a bunch of easier stuff with a couple of friends before the event.
Signed up for:
Cliffhanger (Amasa Back)
keeping this trip relatively short.. thinking now about taking off Wednesday and take the back way from grand junction to Moab then setup camp Wednesday evening
cliffhanger is a fun challenge.. definitely used all of my armor on that one
what the hell....
Over... I might be scrambling over for a night.
sorry to hear that...hope he gets better soon
will be driving through snow to get west, but forecast is looking very nice for this week out there,
Not gonna make it to this... work decided I need to be in wamsutter wyoming
This is by and far the best off-road event...Rising Sun and TLCA do a great job. Southern Cruiser Crawl is also right up there.
Rub it in...
