As for the runs, are there certain schedules for particular runs and what are the fees pertaining to them? I currently have the Hazzard Sky lift with stock tires (hopefully can upgrade before then) and have sliders on order. Working on getting lighting set up completed. CB is installed (galaxy 959). I know I am missing a lot so any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Moab that time of year is nice, a bit chilly at night so bring a good sleeping bag. The EJS events are on there web page as well as the schedule. http://www.rr4w.com/trail-grid-example.cfm
I think it's like $50 a trail but you can go on a open day with some buddies. If you want a nice place to stay that's free look into are BFG, they also have some trails out there. It is privately owned and they accept donations, at that time they even have porta potties.

This year the event is nearly a month later than the last few years, two years ago my group camped in tents. As mentioned previously Area BFE allows camping, it is free/ donations allowed and they are a great group of people! There is BLM land around as well with no camping fees. Hotels are tough during the safari but not impossible, another option is vacation rental sites for condos and such.

So I am thinking of doing the "Sophomore Package". 3 days of moderate trails that includes Deadman Point, Sevenmile Rim, and Fins & Things (BOH). The First Timers package didn't sound very challenging to me but that may be because I've done some wheeling before down around the river canyon by Amarillo. What is everyone else doing if you are going?
BTW, I ordered my RRO supersliders today. Just hope they get here in time.

I would send them an email. I had the same issue with a different trail and they told me I was fine to put that I had bigger tires so it would let me register.

Elephant Hill is very doable. I did not have a lift at the time, and still managed ok. Rock rails will come in handy. I popped a sidewall when I had the OEM Firestone's climbing up the backside of it. Take it slow (or have better tires).

Well I'm registered. It's not the package I wanted but a couple of single runs on Saturday & Sunday. I was at least able to get fins & things though. Planning to be there either Wednesday night or Thursday morning so I can check out the vendors. Just going the tent route for lodging. I didn't check but pretty sure lodging would be hard to find at this point.

Well I'm getting closer to having everything ready. Ordered the RRO step rails and they should be about 4 weeks out and I just ordered some new shoes. BFG KO2 255/70/17. Wanted to stay close to the same width but taller and from what I've read on here 31.1 is about as tall as you can go and have a little rub but not have to cut and grind. Already have the Hazard sky lift too.
