Utah Moab 2024 JuneFest 9th-15th

I will most likely be staying behind at camp while everyone jeeps. I’m on baby duty unless grandma goes. :(

If that’s the case, I plan on making dinner/meals and could whip up a menu and share in the event anyone wants a plate. If that happens, feel free to contribute what you feel is appropriate for your portion.

I'm bringing my dog this year so it's unlikely I'll be doing a trail every day this time. So we can hang
 
My comment was more about you asking for input on trail selection. The only times I haven't wheeled when I was in Moab was when I was broke down. I figure I drove a long ways so I'm not going to miss out on a chance to hit trails.
But I know others who have family that take a day in the middle to do other things.

Usually we'll wheel everyday.

Many trails don't take that long to run. You can run Cliffhanger and Moab Rim and be done by noon, go grab lunch and see some sights.

Plus some with families, like mine may not all be on the trail with me but can go do other stuff.

But someone may break something and be out of commission which also allows seeing some sights.

Doing a trail like the trifecta will take most of the day.

Pritchett, with no waiting and no breakdowns is a grab lunch in Moab afterwards trail.

Pritchett has always taken me all day so I guess we're slow... As I've said before I also am not in a hurry nor interested in trying to set any speed records when doing trails.

Since BFE has changed that is out but we used to go there and play all day. I don't know if the trails near BFE are now restricted but I think I remember reading that they were.

The two times I've been there we spent most of our day on trails but I don't remember which ones anymore.

Lite Brite had a video yesterday talking about BFE being back open.

Day passes start at $100 though

If 5 of us wanted to go that is what we used to donate to go play there... I always dropped at least a $20 into the box when I went.

We had some issues pop up that made things a bit slower. Some of them we spent too much time playing around, which isn't a bad thing.

I think we made it off whatever trails we were running by 2 PM once or twice and the rest of the time it was longer days. We always met at the Market and then people would gather with whichever trail you wanted to do that day. I know things have changed some since this was 14 years ago.

That's $100/vehicle including driver and one passenger additional passengers over 16 are $25.

We normally meet at the shell station or the trail head whichever makes the most sense for wherever people are coming from.

Damn that is a little over the top IMO unless they've added a TON of new trails to BFE. When I was there it had maybe 6 trails for full bodied rigs and 4 for buggies only.

I took it last year.

Me too, last year, but don't know where it is.
FWIW I was told by a Utah local that Jeeps are not OHV for this permit. I'll dig in again and try to confirm.

https://recreation.utah.gov/off-hig...on-and-permits/utah-non-resident-ohv-permits/

Maybe better safe than sorry but here's the text:

"Owners of any off-highway vehicles (ATV or UTV), off-highway motorcycles or snowmobiles brought into Utah by non-residents, must obtain a non-resident permit for their machine in order to operate on public land. To obtain a non-resident OHV permit, you must provide proof of out-of-state residency and that the OHV is not owned by a Utah resident."

If you're talking about BFE specifically, I'll step off cuz I know zilch about that.
