There is a BLM campground IN Moab, but I can't give definite directions as it's been a number of years since we've been there.  The approach road is at the southern end of town, and you drive by the "lake" and the cg backs up against the mountains on the east side.  It is fairly new, about 4-5 years (maybe longer) has waterfalls and is quite picturesque.  Usual no electric or sewers but has water & dump available.

To all
Have a great time in Moab, don't forget, easy drive right up here to Yellowstone, be sure to do an overnight at Antelope Island, then a stop at Smith & Edwards, they have everything you need, cuz if they don't have it, you don't need it.

Hi,
If anyone should need a space, ours is unfortunately available (M34 as I recall). Tara's mom took a turn for the worse and we have made a flying trip to North Dakota. It looks as if we'll be here for a while.
Really hurts to miss this one, but there are reasonable Priorities!
Have a great week, we'll keep up with what's happening,

My Mom and I got back last night from our 9 day trip to visit her relatives in New Jersey and Florida.  I'm currently sitting in the Oakland Airport waiting for my flight to Las Vegas, I'll pick up my car there then go "over the hump" to Pahrump to retrieve my motorhome, then head out towards Moab.  I should get there Sunday evening unless I decide to stop overnight along the way.

Ernie and Tara  - I'm sorry to hear you won't be able to make it to Moab.  These unfortunate things do happen.  As they say, been there, done that and it's never fun.  Hope things go as well as can be expected.

Gary and Maria - Thanks for letting us know you're the first one to arrive.  You can check in the rest of us!  ::)  We'll arrive Sunday afternoon, along with the rest of the crew who are at Monument Valley.

Will do.  Of course, there will be a small fee.  Quite nice in Moab today.  In honor of those of you who have braved the Moab Weather Gods before, a bit of off-road challenging rain will be arriving shortly after you set up.

Well, I don't want any 4WD runs to get rained out in Moab but I sure would like it to rain on Cortez while we're gone so my grass and lettuce and herbs get happy.
 
See ya all tomorrow. We'll probably be last to arrive because we have so far to travel :) Oh, wait, ceemike is traveling the same distance but I'm sure he'll be there before we even leave :)

We arrived a day earlier as planned at Portal and they gave us site # 4 (Sorry Terry) but I'm sure Russ will enjoy having new neighbours. I'm sure Betty will be happy to move to the prime site section so that she does not have to cheat going to the pool and spa at the prime site.
Just said hello to Gary and Maria who are  just across the road from us at site # 19.
We had quite an experience with buying new tires but will explain later. It's now time for a visit at the brewery. See you all to morrow.

Wish we could have been there with everyone. Our travel plans got thwarted somewhat by other events this year. We have fond memories of several Moab rallies with Framily, and we'll be thinking of you all.

BTW will Betty be dressing Chris Pennings in drag this year?

I'm sure Betty will have a suitable punishment for Chris taking her campsite ! Now, who else could she dress up in drag....hmmmmm.

Well, looks like I'm stuck in Pahrump until tomorrow - the storage lot where I left my motorhome closed early today - at noon instead of their published 5 PM.  So I'm in the Best Western tonight and will head to Moab starting at mid-day Sunday.

See you all on Monday.

Tom,

If Betty kicks met out of site # 4 and have me moved to the prime site she will not have enough fashionable clothing with her to drag dress me up to perform for the members on the other side of the fence. Wish Wally was here to help me out :)

Wendy, I wasn't sure we'd even be leaving Cortez on Sunday.  I spent 2 hours yesterday afternoon/evening getting my main awning to roll up & latch so I could travel.  When I rolled the awing up it would rack & the arms wouldn't align so I could latch them.  We had planned to go to the Ute Mountain Casino but after my awning adventure I didn't feel like that anymore. :(   Like I said before, if it ain't one thing it's another when you own a motorhome.  C U later today.

My awning ill do that too, you get the hang of anticipating the direction and a gentle persuasion will align as it is rolling.  I can usually get it the by the third try.

My wife and I are getting excited about Moab and meeting many new people.  I have a busy couple of days at work and then we will be there Thursday around noonish.  I hope everyone travels safely and arrives without problems.

Does anyone have an itinerary yet for the latter part of the week as far as 4wd trails or hiking?  Or is this a wing it group?  Just curious, Mike.

Looks like there may be some musical coach thing goin' on - we are actually in M20 - never have been parked at a three story casita before, however..

Wish I had invested in a wind generator, though... 8)

Please help us solve a knotty problem.

Mary Ann has a knitting project almost finished but needs 2 double pointed number 2 knitting needles to wrap it up.  If you are at Moab and can lend her these needles for a couple of days it would make my life much easier!

Thanks!

Mike,

You might have a set screw missing at the awning rail so the fabric isn't lined up properly. That can shift the arms slightly. They usually put one at one end of the awning at the rail on the coach.

Thank you for the well wishes.  Mom slipped away peacefully this morning with all of her children at her bedside.  She had been in ill health for a long while so we are thankul that shes at peace and not hurting anymore.
