Arriving on the Sunday( 1700 hrs)- Where are we staying this year????

Figure my turn to bring a bottle of Tequila, who's bringing the Margurieta machine?

Been there done that.

Ahhhhh.. Hell's gate.. boy those were the times, right Bob?

I'm working as hard as I can to get the time off. I'm being transfered into a different division and have to deal with a new sergeant. Fortunately, he's love wheeling and LOVES my truck. Will post as soon as I know solidly.

I should be there, and hope to have a convoy with a few other MWIOR VXers!

12/24/2004, 09:24 PM
If all goes well and I can get time off from the school district...I would like to go this year.

I'll be there... I plan to be trying out the 35x12.50x18 Nitto Mud Grapplers... along with a Warn XD9000 winch... and MAYBE a locker up front... not to mention the LS1!

For anyone coming from the midwest, or even the eastern coast... if your road travels through the Kansas City area, I plan to host a way-point rest stop for other ZuZoo travlers... if there are enough folks who plan to travel through I might have a little cook out, a drink or two, and then start off fresh in the am for the final leg into Moab (around 15'ish hours from the KC area)... I have lots of space so feel free to stop. A big arse pile of Isuzu metal would be fun in my 'hood.

Those videos ROCK btw. I haven't seen those before. I'll definitely be passing them along myself.

Welp, back to the garage for me... I'll catch y'all later!

Coach... I mean Randy (I often forget who I really am) ;)

Okay, the ZuZoo site has been updated! Who is going to be staying where? I see the camp sites at Portal are $16 a night, the group sites are $8 per person a night, cabins $35-39 a night. Has anyone checked into a group rate at a hotel yet? What were the room costs last year? I will probably be camping but still not 100% sure. If the room price is reasonable I may go that route.

I have it marked on the calendar - hopefully nothing will erase it off there! :p

01/25/2005, 12:23 PM
Other than accepting a Noble Peace Prize I don't think anything "more important" should erase it! :p

01/25/2005, 01:20 PM
I didn't say it would be "more important" than going to Moab! Life has a funny way of sneaking into playtime - hate that!

01/25/2005, 02:05 PM
I got us a group rate at a hotel last year - something in the $65 range (typical for Moab) I believe with a free continental breakfast, pool, hot tub and pets ok. We need about 10 rooms to get any deals - if we get at least that many confirming on this post, I will go ahead and give them a CC to hold then you will need to contact them with your credit card number to confirm at least 30 days out (by April 15th).

Or if someone wants to take on this task, please let me know.

I also reserved tables for 20 (rough guess) at various restaurant's around town so each night there would be a known meeting place if one wanted - most nites the tables were full. I would be happy to do that again and any input would be great.

Or someone can take this task as well.

01/25/2005, 03:04 PM
Yep, looks like I am going to be able to make it this year.

I'm in! Probably will want to stay in hotel. Maybe camp out one night. I just bought a Trooper Tod skidplate. I have not installed it yet. I hope it is easy. Later

I can't seem to find the thread I started on the Vx Only Run. I would like a head count and what we all decided to do. Camp out one night or a one day trip.

01/26/2005, 07:30 AM
I'll be there.

I'll be there this year. My boss understands that I'll quit my job before I miss Moab again. My girlfriend informed me today that she's going to go with me. Life is good.

Glad you're coming out of hibernation. We'll have the whole gang there again this year. :bgwo:

01/31/2005, 02:33 PM
Glad you're coming out of hibernation.

I'm still hibernating. I just want to spend part of May hibernating in Moab. :p

02/01/2005, 05:47 AM
Tim, you still live! Glad to hear you're going to make it to Moab!

03/30/2005, 03:53 PM
Change of plans. I won't be attending this year for financial reasons. This really sucks. :mad:

04/28/2005, 12:36 PM
So, anyone else decide to come out to Moab?
If all gos well should have the new tires ready to test this weekend. Have reservations at the Portal campground. Will be arriving there The evening of the 16th! Getting antsy!

05/04/2005, 12:13 AM
First, the good: I just got a promotion at work (effective May 1st), and will be making some extra $$$. Woo hoo! :dance:

Now the bad: I was pretty much set for Moab this year even though I was having a great bit of trouble juggling this year's finances and vacation schedule. I even had a room reserved! The time problems were just about fixed when word came of my promotion. That is going to help with the $$$ aspect, but now my days off for the rest of the year are now changed. Just like this time last year when work nixed Moab, it did it again. There's no way I can make it to Zu Zoo VIII. :waab:

I'll be thinking of you all. The MWIOR convoy will have to wait. Next year? Be safe and have fun everyone!

05/04/2005, 09:23 PM
Hey gang,

I'm in. Just got my CB, tires, time off work, etc. Ready to roll.

Got my reservation at Portal Campground - tenting it.

Be there the 18th - 21st...


05/08/2005, 07:58 AM

Are you going to Moab? Do you want to travel together.

Is there anyone else going from Houston?


05/12/2005, 07:15 AM
well, Shannon and I will not be attending this year. My employment has basically emplied that I can take off work and enjoy myself but not have a job....or I can slave to their grind and keep my job...hmm...which do I do.....which do I do??????

also, I injured my shoulder at work last night, so my vacation is shot from work and I will be staying here to get it fixed.
