Gordon says there's no way a cat can take the place of an awesome Labrador retriever.

Have fun and stop by if you feel line helping shovel gravel.

Since I can't figure out how to stuff a Jeep in the back of a 5th wheel, I am going to be canceling our reservation for Moab this year. I will wait a day or two if anyone wants our site. We were in the resort side in R45.

Sarge,

I saw a 5er the other day with a jeep behind.  Looked like a typical Roadmaster Falcon hitch to me but I did not get to examine it as they were going the other way in our local construction.  I have no idea of how it was hooked in the 5er.

Yeah, Ca doesn't allow triple towing, at least not with a passenger vehicle. Some do and some don't.  That would freak me out anyways, towing a rig that long. Shoot, I would be over 70' feet long!

I don't have the Jeep or the 3500 in the pic any more but I tow a Honda Fit now, 1500 lbs lighter than the Jeep, and have a Dodge 4500. I'm 70' with the Honda and have a rear view camera, Roadmaster Black Hawk tow bar and full active brake system with break away. It tows no problem but I wont be towing it to Moab due to our short trip this year.

You are a braver man than I! Trying to navigate So. Cal. freeways with that much in tow would require an escort service!

What's up?  Did you sell the Journey and go 5'er?

Yeah I did Mike. I actually went back to 5ver, as that what we did before the motor homes.  It made more financial sense for us right now, and since we won't be traveling the country full time now, it hurts less to have the 5ver sitting in the driveway for extended periods. 

At 70' in length, he'd never get out of California.

And that's the truth Wendy! The CHP would have a field day with the cite I would get!

We already cancelled GP, so you can call right away and reserve the spot for the week.  I would do it quick as the spots go fast for that time of year.

   Hello Everyone, been working on the old jeep getting ready for Moab. Can't wait to get some Red dirt on it. As the Brewers & Weimert's told me in Death Valley, "Jeep means, Just Empty Every Pocket" I am beginning to believe it. I am posting a pic of the Jeep and I just hope to be able to tag along with all you guys this May. Terry, I can't tear it up because I have to have something to pull to Alaska after Moab. Can't wait to to see you all in Moab.

I feel like I am just crawling out from under a rock.  I am a tax man and have been working 16 hours a day for the last 3 months, which is really making me look forward to our first rally.  We are not going to be able to get there until Monday afternoon due to Mother's day committments, but we are looking forward to meeting everyone in the framily.   We don't have an offroad vehicle, but we do have a Honda Cr-V toad.  I am sure there is plenty to see by car in the  area and all of you will share your suggestions with us. Having never been to a rally before, is there anything special I need to know or to bring? Anything else I should know?  ???

Due to a sudden medical condition, Linda and I will not be able to attend the Moab Rally this year. I will not cancel our reservation until May 5th. Anyone wishing to attend and would like to take our site (Site RV 8 - a nice pull through), please contact me and we can coordinate tranferring our reservation (5/12 to 5/19) to you. Contact me at RSharp0914ataoldotcom.

Steve,

Unless they have changed the CRV, you will be able to go on quite a few off road adventures. When I had a Grand Vitara, I led many rides to places like Chicken Corners and several of the arches. I can't do it any longer as we now have a GMC Terrain and the clearance is minimal. There are several members who have been on these rides and can tell you where to go.

Steve,

Jim is spot on.  We have done almost ALL the easy 4WD trails and half-a-dozen of the intermediate 4WD trails in a 2004 Acura MDX because it has 4-wheel lockers.  Your CRV will be able to do some too.

     Steve, after a bad experience in Quartzsite in 2010, we said that we would bunk in with others but under no circumstances would we take our Liberty on any trip when we went to Moab last year.  Well we showed up at the first Happy Hour on sunday, and guess what the firs order of business was a trip up Onion Creek, then up and over the LaSalle Mountains, and back to Moab, hell no we were going, but we got talked into it.  Not only was the scenery out of this world, the roads were all graded, there were no tough or dangerous sections, and we said thank you to those who convinced us to go.  Then, we went every day on lots of beautiful back road trails.  We had no problem getting around, other than the occasional traffic jam on some of the narrow roads.  We loved Long Canyon so much that we went twice, and if you decide to go, come down the canyon from Dead Horse State Park (link: http://www.discovermoab.com/stateparks.htm) it is about 15 miles down, but well worth the trip, we went up via Gemini Bridge, so the round trip, including a stop for lunch, and multiple stops for pictures, took about 3 to 4 hours.  The RAV4 will be OK as long as you don't try to hot dog off road.
    Maybe again next year.

We were told that for most of the month leading up to and including the forum rally we are in the resort area of Portal.  We have to move the week before to the campground area because nothing has opened up that week yet because the 4-wheeler FMCA rally hasn't had the cancellation we need yet.  We are heading for Portal this Saturday. If any of you get there early, please look us up.  They haven't told us our spot number yet.

Richard, be advised that Doug at Portal was none too happy when we cancelled our reservation. He even mentioned "having to talk to Jerry about cancelling this event".  If this was a group event, there would be NO cancellations, and all spaces would be paid in full, regardless.

What that means is that I would cancel ASAP to give Doug the chance to resell the site. I would hate to see you get stuck paying for a site that you did not get to use.

Sarge,

That is why I am hoping that a Forum member can use our reservation and we do not have to cancel, just transfer from one person to another. That way Doug would not have to worry about re-renting our site. The reservation confirmation that we received last May clearly states, "We have a minimum 48 hour notice of cancellation on any reservation." Since in all the years that we have attended the Rally, Portal has been completely booked, I do not think Doug will have any trouble renting our site if we have to cancel one week before our scheduled arrival.

Richard,

I agree with you that your spot will be rented immediately once you cancel. It never ceases to amaze me that these campground owners complain loudly when someone drops a reservation only to find out there are many who are just waiting for such a situation to happen!!

We just spent a few days at Arch View RV Campground just north of Moab. It wasn't as fancy as Portal but I would stay there again. Perhaps the group should consider trying this park. As I said, it's not fancy but we had a good time and it was convenient to Moab. It's directly across from the road to Dead Horse Point.

Sarge, did bajarat (Gary) get with you and take your spot?  He sent me an email and it sounded like you guys just transferred the site but I just wanted to make sure he was confirmed a site.

Thanks.

Portal has no reason to complain. Cancellations are picked up as quickly as they're made. Try calling today and they're probably full. Maybe if we all cancelled 48 hours out he'd have a gripe.

Maybe Jerry will whisper in his ear and help him with a much-needed attitude adjustment.
