Me and kgb will be at gone Tue-Sat morning
He doesnt come on here often, so I doubt he will see this.
But Donnie (Basecamp) will be there repping The VAXC
Myself and the wife will be attending this one.
I'll be there.
I'm going for the whole week. Is Donnie bringing his dad again? Can't wait to see them both.
(oops, meant to quote Obi regarding Donnie)
I'll be there. Maybe some people will be up for a convoy up there from NM?
Providing my rig is up in time to give it a good shakedown before then I'll be there but probably only for the last couple days. I'll have a better idea if I'll be there here in 2 or 3 weeks
I will be there, Staying in condos
If anyone wants to convoy from the Midwest, pm me. I'm leaving early Saturday morning taking I80 and stopping for the night probably around Denver. That should put me in Moab early afternoon on Sunday.
I will depart Northern California either Thursday May 14 or Friday May 15 for arrival in Moab either Saturday afternoon May 16 or Sunday noonish on May 17.
Anyone interested in caravaning all or part of the way??
These arrived in today's mail. I'm not sure if reading the trail guide will make the time until goneMOAB go faster or seem like an eternity. :confuseded:
The Denver convoy will be departing on Sunday morning at 8:00 AM from I-70 and Morrison Rd. Anyone coming through is welcome to join. We'll post more info later like exact spot, cb channel, etc.
Perfect. I'll watch for updates.
with the dates for this drawing closer it is becoming painfully obvious that I won't make it. Hope y'all have fun and maybe Ill see you somewhere else later this year or at GONE next year!

See you there!
Yeah his dad is a trip for sure
Ima be there by Wednesday night...and leading Kane Creek on Thursday. Woot.
I'm sure I'll be in your group
I am not sure if he is bringing his dad this time. He did leave this morning though. I met up with him last night to give him the VAXC banner to rep at the event.
Dixie and DRB - per the picture I just saw on Facebook, Donnie is bringing his dad.
Yeah Donnie told me a few months back his dad was going
Seriously, tomorrow evening cannot come soon enough... Anyone else coming from NM?
