    Wallweb I think had a lot of pics. I suck at for stopping photos. At some point in my life I got tired of watching it through a screen. I am sure we have a lot more than we posted.

    honestly we hit trails on ejs off days and only on part of poison spider did we deal with a massive back up. Otherwise we did ok. If you go with the groups I suspect it’s a long slow frustrating day.

    We are going for 5 days, got our reservations at Moab Valley RV Resort! Been 3 years since we went during the EJS. Can't wait.

    As of today, we plan on attending, was great wheeling with you guys (and gals) and look forward to another run at it.
    We traded our 2005 toyhauler in on a 2015 40' fifth wheel toyhauler so we will definitely stay in it instead of a motel.
    Same goes for a Rubicon run next summer. :like:

    We have a reservations in Moab Monday the 6th and leave Saturday the 11th. What months work for rubicon for you? I’m thinking July or August or maybe September during the week.

    this is my fear.

    i have the time off and the means to get there for EJS, but i want to wheel, i dont want to wait in a line all day.

    everything i've heard is that its a waiting game, and EJS has the other trails marked off for their use only.

    We did poison spider early in the morning and there was not a lot of people out there at all. But if you go back the way you came, insane backup and lines. Like 40+ Jeeps waiting to go up where you're coming down. You'd probably be better doing the triple threat and come out the other end.

    I also don’t like the crowds in town either. Busy enough during a normal week. All the fun spots like the Moab Brewery, or even the City Market grocery store are a zoo!

    you can run Elephant Hill alone. At that time of year there will be enough people out there that you won't be alone anyway. Be sure to get you permit in advance in case it's over-full. I think the earliest you can do is 24 hours, but you can double check that online at the NPS Canyonlands website. Permits for EH are free.

    there's a lot of kooks like that here, they don't understand the money involved in events like EJS, which is the largest event of the year. The other one is Rally on the Rocks, an ATV event. Bikers and hikers aren't that influential in this town.

    I remember during ejs the registration for elephant Hill with rr4w booked up incredibly fast, I think it was less than an hour. You think there will be a shot to do it outside of rr4w on an off day? How are the JLUs doing with the canyon section?

    Agreed....EJS is a spectacle to see once...after that, I'd mark it off the bucket list and go in October-November or after EJS, late April/May time frame.

    Sand Hollow is awesome.....A lot of people are now skipping Moab completely to go there instead. Utah has a lot of great wheeling to offer.
