Moab 2017 Trip (updated dates)
« on: February 08, 2017, 10:45:12 AM »
This is a last minute plan to make Moab in April following the Easter Jeep Safari. I'm leaning toward 4/20 - 4/22.

Checking with Bowen Motel, whom we stayed with a few years ago, their rates are shown below. Doubling up and sharing expenses obviously makes it more affordable. I was leaning toward the Guest House to accommodate my crew coming from the Salt Lake City area. Bowen also offers trailer parking directly behind the motel.

Post up if interested along with additional ideas or options.

I called Bowen and booked the Guest House for Thursday 4/20 - Saturday 4/22, checking out Sunday 4/23.

They have a lenient cancellation policy such that no charges apply if cancelled 24 hours prior to first night stay. Might be worth booking if you're on the fence about going.

Post up any questions and trails you're interested in so we can get them scheduled.

I've added another day to the front-end of this potential trip such that there are now 4 nights, 4/19 - 4/22 checking out Sunday 4/23.    :dance005:

Anyone interested can either extend their stay beyond the dates shown or even shorten their stay.   :dunno:

Post up with any questions, concerns or trails.

I regretfully announce this trip has been cancelled.   :sorry:

However, on a happy note, we will calendar this trip for April 2018 which should give ample notice for interested parties so they can begin saving their pocket change.  :thumbs:

sorry we couldn't get this done but that just means more time to get more people involved for next year
