Does anybody have any interest in going to Moab the later part of September or early part of October?
Me and three other tubbers are gonna be there probably around Oct 2- maybe 7 or 8th
My plan is to arrive in Moab October 1st and pitch a tent at Slickrock RV park 5-6 nights. Day rides I'd like to try and do are, Chicken corners, Shafer trail, White rim (full day), Gemini bridges.... nothing crazy just fun and scenic. If time permits, a hike to Corona and Delicate arch and/or a half day canyoneering trip. Absolutely nothing set in stone, and as always weather permitting. Hopefully we can coordinate some rides with those riders planning on being there. When I checked Slickrock RV park they still had 10-15 tent sites not sure about rv sites or the cabins.I’m down to go. I’ve never been though so idk what is need to be able to join. Just got my tdub this year]
Hi Fishfulthing, Moab keeps showing up on my bucket list even after I’ve been there half dozen times....that said, most of the rides I’d like to do are in the range of 30-80 miles with the exception being the White rim trail 120-130 miles, long day but worth it. I’m pitching a tent at Slickrock rv park, I like a shower after riding all day but there lots of other campsites along the river mostly run by the blm. All you need is for riding would be the normal backcountry day ride stuff, tow strap, some tools, tube repair kit, matches, flash light, food, water etc......for the White rim trail you’ll need more gas than the 1.8 gals provided on the stock TW. Weather is always changing that time of year could be fairly warm or cool with occasional rain shower, never know, we ever had snow flurries once, plan for the worse hope for best, e-mail if you have any questions.

We should be rolling in Friday the 2nd if all goes well. Might try to hit slick rock area that evening since we won't be there until prolly 3-4pm. Maybe we could a do white rim trail together since it looks like it's in all of our list. Or some other good rides. We don't really have a plan on what ride on what day. If your going to do chickens corner I would do it before you do the white rim. I wasn't impressed with that ride and I think it's mostly because we did the white rim, onion Creek and top of the world first and the scenery is spectacular on those rides. Just my opinion though. Once you get there it's pretty cool overlook but it takes while. When we did white rim a few years ago I clocked 130 miles from the gas station outside the park back to the gas station.

Drive that thing up Onion Creek. It's a beautiful drive and very easy. We did it in a honda cr-v and I would prolly do it in my Corolla but well worth itWish I could take the TW but we’ll be there in our other ugly Swiss army vehicle in October.
