Title: Moab April 29 - May 5
Post by: Hank on January 12, 2017, 07:28:46 PM
So I booked the same place as I booked last year - Moab Springs Ranch #10.
We had 8 guys in there last year and that worked well.   Robert and I agree that any more would be too cozy.

Duffer has a place now too that's good for 5 more.

I reserved to the north of town.  Positives:  Better location for riding and town, 20 minutes closer to home for the drive in and out.  Negatives: not nearly as many rentals to choose from

IN list:
Hank
Duffer
Jay
Robert
Marshall
Dan
Nathaniel
Kyle
Dave
Jon
Joel
Ken
Tim (Hank's friend from SLC) - for a couple days
Jeff (staying at the KOA and bringing BBQ

Total: 12 + 1PT + 1 offsite

Likely:




Maybe:

OK, list updated.   Room in the condo for 1 more, or lets get a few more and get a 2nd spot. 

Less in condo 1 is fine too, if we shuffle people around to fill two.

The first condo cost $2675, taxes and fees included.  Smaller ones in the area cost less.
For condo 1, lodging costs:  5 guests = $535, 6= $446, 7 = $382, 8 = $335.. Anywhere in that range is fine w/ me.

Other than lodging, its a cheap trip.. eat / drink in if you want, as the place has a full kitchen and grill on the deck.    Fuel / food / gas booze doesn't amount to that much.   Need a trail pass, I think, although there's been some debate whether or not street legal bikes need one.

Looks like about 50% of the Moab Springs Ranch condos are still available that week.   I think we should get another 4 guys interested and someone should rent one!

Sweet!  The condo is officially (over) full, so lets get a few more and a second place!  9 total are IN.. so even 1 more and we could have 6 in condo 1 and 4 in condo 2...

Title: Re: Moab April 29
Post by: Hank on February 06, 2017, 09:49:28 PM
Duffer says he's 90% IN.. so that would make 10 total

In that case someone will need to take the reins for a 2nd spot, and I'd recommend fairly soon.     Keep in mind they can be cancelled up till 30 days in advance in case things go pear shaped.

I'm just assuming that the cost for 6 in condo 1 will be acceptable.. See post #6 that wold be $446 each for lodging.   Please post / PM / text / call me if its not as I don't want to just blindly speak for everyone and find out I said stuff I shouldn't have :)

Post by: dufferv65 on February 07, 2017, 09:06:59 PM
Here is what I'm fine that is left(check in 4/29; check out 5/5) at the Spring Ranch where Hank already has the one condo already booked.
Option 1: $1901
 Bedrooms: 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6, Beds for 5-6

    Master Bedroom: 1 queen
    Sleeps 2
    Pull out sofa in living room: 2 sleep sofa /futon
    Most suited to kids: pull-out sleeper sofa in LIVING ROOM
    Bedroom 2: 1 queen, 1 twin/ single
    Sleeps 2 in queen bed and 1 in single bed

Option 2: $2391
Bedrooms: 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 7, Beds for 7
- unsure on Bed arrangements...

I would be fine with booking the first option if there would be a couple more people to split the cost($1901/4 adults =$475.25 each). 
I really want to go to Moab again and have no good excuse not to, provide the lodging arrangement are ironed out.
Yes there are other places to stay but could be up to 20min commute across town.  I feel it would be best to be virtually next door to one another for the best beer drinking conditions and also to help one another with bike repairs.

What's everyone thoughts?  If there is not enough takers to justify a second condo, I will not be able to justify paying the entire condo expense and will have to sit out :,(

As Hank previously noted a second condo would need to be booked very shortly.

Lastly, I would make 10 on the in list.  If 6($445/each) stayed with Hank and 4 stayed($475) this possible additional condo- Would this be ok with everyone?  This would also give enough room for more if needed.

Well my opinion is "go for it".. we still have roughly 7 weeks to cancel 1 of them if things change... plus this leaves us with some room for additional people.  I have a friend from SLC who is thinking about joining us too.

I think $450 for lodging is still cheap.   Trying to save $1-200 for a whole week by stacking ourselves in like sardines isn't money well spent in my opinion.

And I also agree it'd be nice for us all to be next door to each other.

wow $475...that's only like just shy of $80/night.

And it includes a big garage, pool, whirlpool, deck, gas grill, fully equipped kitchen.. and a real nice pad to stay in.   Compared to a hotel which might cost $40 bucks per head per night, its a steal when you consider you can make your own food and save a lot of money there (and have better food).

Only thing that would be cheaper is tenting, and I'm not living in a tent for 6 nights :)   Or possibly the Motel 6 and a steady diet of McDonalds, which sounds worse than a tent.

Edit:  Just for shits and giggles I checked, and the Motel 6 is $155/night for those dates!

Link to the condo - take the virtual tour or check out the pics.   Its a nice place:

Yeah I know.  It sounds like a great deal.  I better get my butt in gear and get the truck and bike finished.
Tenting is fine for a couple nights.  I'm not as youthful as I once was and willing to put up with it for too long

Trying to get caught up.  First of all the only person on this board that I really know is Fletch, I also know who Rob is from talking to him at the KTM rally and one breakfast.  So basically I am the "new" guy that doesn't really know anyone.

In terms of lodging I am willing to pitch in up to half of the cost of a condo if needed.  I say book the other one and hopefully we get a few more people to sign up. 

I have no plans for getting to Moab so if anyone wants to ride together let me know (I live in Rapid City). 
Title: Re: Moab April 29 - May 5
Post by: greatbuffalo on February 08, 2017, 08:55:38 PM
Will probably take my van then. So I can take a few more. Can swing by Rapid if needed or what ever.

I guess when we get a better head count and where folks are we can better plan rides.

Good deal.    I'd rather have a little too much room over not enough.    I would think a few more might still decide to come too!

Looks like unit 1 doesn't have a garage, but unit 10's garage is big enough for a LOT of bikes.   We had 11 in there I think last year with extra room.

Post by: Robmicgrn on March 16, 2017, 04:31:25 PM
I think the longest ride we did last year was maybe 100 miles. The 2-strokers had issues but nobody else really did. the long day we slabbed about 40 miles, rode around for maybe 20 and slabbed back. the two strokers trailered out to that site. Everything there is fairly close. There are some longer rides (White Rim) that are over 200 miles, but none of us last year were set up for that. My 530 is good for 120-150 and I dont think I ever went below half a tank on most days That being said, I have been pondering on bringing a bigger bike capable of that kind of a loop. A slower easy site seeing type day (white rim) might be a nice break between "Metal Masher and Poison Spider"  :evil

150 miles door to door from Moab. I think there is also off-shoots you can do, making it longer or shorter as well. I did in my truck nearly 25 yrs ago and the Scenery is awesome.

That being said, my 530 can do it with a little extra gas brought along, just in case.

Does anyone need a ride? I have plenty of room for people and maybe one bike. 2 if they are small.

I was giving a thought about leaving on the 28th. And make it most of the way out and crash somewhere. Even if I just sleep in the van.

Would kinda like to travel somewhere near someone if it works just in case the the old van has issue. Not trying to jinx myself, just know how things can go.

Great, I hadn't heard you were coming along.  I think there's only one day (that's planned anyway) that you will maybe need gas.  Your WR should do about 120 miles on a stock tank.  I can't remember if yours is stock or not.  If you have a larger tank than stock, only bring them along for guys that will surely need them.  I have a pack of two MSR containers I will need to carry.  If I have time I might try to mount a RotopaX for that days riding.

A heads up for those bringing trailers.   There used to be a spot for trailers along the driveway, but apparently something is being built there now so thats gone.   So now the trailers have to either fit in the garages or under the carports or have to go to a neighboring property and there will be a fee (not sure how much).

That all sorta sucks.   I know Duffer's place just has a carport, maybe we can fit 2 trailers under that and all the bikes can go in the bigger condo's garage.

We have a fresh in of snow here this morning as a little reminder that it is only April in ND and not exactly riding season.   >:(

Haha, yes there is some white crap falling from the sky in eastern SD too.  Sounds like another good reason to go to Utah!

3" of the wet white frozen stuff here today.  Not cool. or rather too cool. Utah envy is definitely creeping up quick.

I've gotten a few calls on who is sleeping where.  Well, it doesn't matter to me in the least, but to keep us organized here is who has spoken up and said they would volunteer for condo 1.

I'll take the downstairs bedroom that has one bed, figure Jay will take an air mattress on the floor with me.

Ken and Robert in the upstairs bedroom by the kitchen.

LD and Kyle in the other downstairs bed room... there are 3 beds in that room if memory serves.

Tim will take a floor mattress somewhere since he'll be Johnny Come Lately.

So that leaves one open bed in with Kyle and LD and maybe another spot on a floor mattress in condo #1.

Also, regarding how we split the cost, my thought is we we add up the number of nights per person, and then divide the total by that, so regardless of which condo everyone pays the same per night.    Right now we have 12 guys there for 6 nights and one guy for 3, so we'll add up both condos and divide by 75 and that will be the per night cost.   Sound fair?

I don't care who stays were but I will be coming up with Hank and we plan on arriving before Dark, probably around 7:00 pm MDT. 
Here are the lodging accommodations at the condo #1 I have rented for the trip.

 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6
Master Bedroom - 1 queen , Sleeps 2
Pull out sofa in living room - 2 sleep sofa /futon , Most suited to kids: pull-out sleeper sofa in LIVING ROOM
Bedroom 2 - 1 queen , 1 twin/ single , Sleeps 2 in queen bed and 1 in single bed

I have dibs on one of the beds is all I care. Depending how comfy everyone wants to get, there's a good chance that someone may end up on a cot or air mattress so plan accordingly.

I plan on being there at 8ish in the evening.  I would prefer a bed if there is one available, but whatever works.  Since you guys are planning everything and I am coming down by myself I will go wherever.

I would recommend that for anyone that has a nice air mattress, please throw it in.  Odds are someone can use it.

It would probably make the best use of space then if you shacked up with LD and Kyle.   I just looked, that room has two bunk beds and 1 queen.

Post by: Hank on April 28, 2017, 07:25:41 AM
Lets plan this, and of course its subject to change but at least we have a starting point and everyone knows where to put their shit :)

Condo 1:
Top floor bedroom:  Robert and Ken
Downstairs bedroom #1 (small):   Hank and Jay
Downstairs bedroom #2 (big): Kyle, LD, Nathaniel, Dan
Living room on a mat:  Tim

Condo 2, exact layout TBD:
Duffer
Marshal
Joel
Jon

That should be pretty comfortable I think.

Hopefully parking doesn't turn into a huge issue.    Condo #1's garage should hold all the bikes.

Thanks for the planning! Just checking in. Me - Jon - and my brother Joel in condo 2. No trailer. We have cots just a in case. Condo 2 is the same address?

Yes Condo two is right there.      You might be there before us, in which case you can text/call me or Duffer and we'll get you instructions on how to get in.    My cell is 605-881-8092

Hey, yes it is 1266!   I'm not sure where that "one" went.  Probably fell off a cliff on metal masher.

Well I discovered when loading up that I have a broken subframe on the KLR. I am sure it started long ago but the rocky woops and content jarring of the Schafer Trail and the White Rim trail finished the job. That is the reason I have no license plate. So need to tear that down this week and spark up the welder   :(

If you guys  want  a little more technical  single track northeast of green river  the chimney rock area is outstanding. We gave up on moab and spend our whole week in green river. And if you want really technical  your about 45 minutes from the 5 miles of hell up in the San Rafael  swell.
 Way less crowded
