Moab Spring 2020
« on: December 21, 2019, 03:38:21 PM »
Thinking......

I rough plan, as is always the case with me, is to travel to Moab area the 3rd or 4th week of April. The plan is to boondock camp in the BLM areas.

Two areas of interest to me in the BLM land just North of Arches NP and the Whitewash Sand dunes area. Figures spend 2 to 3 days at each spot, or pick one location and ride out from there.

I plan to bring my little toy hauler with my two besties and Nathaniel. I think with some judicious use of the 100 gallon water tank, we should be fairly good for the week or maybe a dump and fill in between spots if we move. 

This will be my first outing boondocking with the RV so I'm sure it will be a learning experience. Any advice on camping spots and plain old sage advice is always welcome.

Putting out the word to any and all who would like to join in the fun. Good riding, good times, good grub and great beer will be the order of this trip.

Please post your thoughts and comments

Intriguing at this point.

Big bike friendly AT? or something smaller like my XL600?

Definite maybe consider at this point.  Might be able to combine this with a work trip to make it so I could do it
87 XL600R 89 CBR600R
'17 CRF1000L
When can I go riding again?

I'd prefer the 4th week / Small bike.  No issues boondocking. 

 ......  Ooops, maybe you weren't inviting me

......   but then again, who's gonna ride with Nathanial and the mighty Beta?  :evil

Yes Brad, your invited  :) And yes, Nathaniel may need a devil on his shoulder.  :evil

Ya know, big bike... little bike... chose your own adventure really. We don't all have to ride as one group. I know in previous visits to Moab I have ridden with the group on a small bike, then out on my own shooting photos on my KLR and one trip was all big bike. I can't say I am looking to hurt myself so the terrain I choose to ride may be tame in comparison to what others want to ride.
