I figured we should start a travel/camping/hotel/meals planning thread for the Moab takeover (May 16-20th). This way we'll keep everything together and organized in one place.
Those from Vegas area that are attending so far: (That I'm aware of)

The plan so far is to leave Vegas early on Wednesday the 16th. Travel to Moab is 8 hours not including breaks and gas so we'll be driving all day. The return for me will be Monday the 21st.
Don and I were thinking 5 nights at Area BFE would be overwhelming if 100 tacomas do show up (holy shit...). So we were thinking we'd do a night at BFE maybe Thursday or Friday to hang and meet with the rest of the crowd but then we'd find a more secluded camp site/motel for the rest of the nights. This doesn't mean we'll be away from the crowd completely, we can still chill there for the events/raffles etc Friday and/or Saturday night.
I personally only want to do one night in a motel, my funds are limited, but I'll need a shower by then. Maybe Friday or Saturday nights would be good timing for a motel room. Please research options an post up your preferences.
Motel/Hotel and date TBA....
I've been researching camp sites both back-country and private. Private developed sites are more likely to have toilets and other facilities. I'll likely do at least one night on my own in the back-country, maybe Sunday night. I'm working on organizing a list of camping options and I'll post them up soon. If folks agree we can make reservations where available.
Camping options TBA...
TTORA likes to OVER plan meals. The way I think we should do it:
Breakfast - on your own, share if you want
Lunch - on your own, share if you want
Dinner - an appetizer/snack to share and a side dish or dessert to share
This way folks dont buy too much food, which is normally what I see on these multi-day trips, but there will still be some apps and dishes to pass around. No one will starve, I'm sure.
We're less than a month away! Let's rip it UP! Please post up your comments/ideas/preferences. I'll update things as we make some progress on planning.
Some vids to get errbody excited.
