Thumb Moab Adv Ryder Guesthouse is OPEN

Moab Adventure Ryder Guesthouse, ie, the MARG, is accepting reservations in Moab, UT from my ADVrider friends.

I have a very nice, new and private guest room to offer affordable overnight lodging to my friends here so all of you who have wanted to travel to Moab can now do so and be able to have an awesome space to enjoy w many added value features included and designed w the needs of ADV motorbikers in mind.

I am located in the NW part of town,6 blocks from Main street, but w beautiful views of Moab Rim to the East and the Colorado River Canyon Rim, the "Portal", local orchards, farmland and the wetlands along the Colorado River to the West.

My furnished room is 400 Sq ft w full sized bed, couch, comfy chairs, desk, couple of mini fridges, three closets for your gear, internet, small kitchenette, washer, water dispenser w local spring water, 2 person jacuzzzi tub, outdoor shower w hot tub, outdoor patio and shade trees galore, outdoor grill, firepan and firewood. I can help w shop space, tools, air, etc for your mechanical needs.

I can share my large library of local and regional natural history and travel books, guidebooks and maps I have acquired from 30 years of exploring this area and working as an outdoor guide and instructor.

I have a huge garden and fruit trees on the property and any of my guests can have grazing rights to enjoy the food available.

I will be glad to help you w personalized advice on best route here, where to go once you are here so you will have the best experience suited towards your needs. I can offer to help w any other gear you may need as I have all kinds of camping, hiking, boating, biking and motorbike gear from a lifetime of pursuing outdoor sports.

I can accommodate up to 3 adults, but do have some shaded grass camping space w tents, pads and bags available if you have a few more folks in your group.

I am asking for donations as follows:

Single Ryder (1) night stay/ $75, (2)or more nights $60/night
2-3 Ryders (1) night stay/ $95, (2) or more nights $75/night
weekly rate gives you 15% discount
legitimate disability gives you 20% discount
Winter rates are 15% discount/ Dec thru January if I am here and open

So why the Moab Adventure Ryder Guesthouse?

I know Moab and the surrounding regions are a highly prized destination for motorcyclist from all over this planet. I would like to do my part in trying to help my ADV friends be able to come and visit this wonderful region in a fun, affordable, and personalized manner. Adventure riding is so expensive w the cost of bikes, gear, gas and lodging and everything is so expensive/overpriced/booked in Moab. I want to share my great space w my ADV friends in a win/win situation and help make your ADV travel trip more fun and affordable for all of us. If you have any questions about my Guesthouse and would like to plan a trip, please send me PM and we can discuss your needs.



















awesome security dog for your protection included, no extra charge

Cool2 Can help you enjoy some awesome activities

I can help book some other awesome activities. My neighbor Mike, has a guided hiking business specializing in small affordable private hiking trips to incredible areas, some nobody knows about. My other neighbor runs a canoe livery business and I can book you w his unadvertised insider deal where for $65 you get a 6 hour/102 mile jet boat trip down and back up the Colorado River. They have to go pick up all the canoes and boaters before the class 4 whitewater starts in Cataract Canyon and generally have some extra seats. You get back to the boat ramp at 2:30pm and can then ride your GS style bike from the boat ramp up the dirt Shafer Trail into Island in the Sky National park and check out the river trip you just did from way above. World class 2 sport day in my book.

Here is some pictures of the jet boat trip:

Boat is totally empty on the way down, the Driver has been doing this for 28 years.



Down the river we go....



The white rock rim on top is same rock as the famous "white rim trail" rock



If all that is too much, I can show you how to get to the Sandy Beach for snacks, swimming and sunset.



Panaramic shot of the town and the "Portal" in the back where the river has carved it's way thru the Moab Rim. Come on down for a visit.

Sweet!

I'll be in Moab next week for work...with a big tour group on a motor-coach. Seeing Arches, Canyonlands and a Riverboat ride w/ the Moab by Night people. If you see a big bus that says, Trafalgar, around town or at the Best Western, that's me.

Cool2

I was the 1st visitor to the Guesthouse and really enjoyed my stay!! The thing I liked the most about it was it had the homey feeling you don't get at a Motel/Hotel.

I like low key and simple when on the road and Marcia's Guesthouse was just the ticket. I wish I could put an outdoor shower up at my place for the simplicity of the whole thing.

Anyone considering taking her up on this offer should do so with no regrets. Location is everything and her place is right off the main drag. That suited me just fine giving it the backyard atmosphere.

She has all the maps and Guidebooks for everything in the area as she said and that saved me some $. When I was done using them back in the box they went. If anyone has any questions or concerns feel free to shoot me a PM and I can possibly give my 2 cents.

This is a great thing she has going on and I would like to help her out if I can so don't be shy. Was like having a friend in the area. Funny thing is now I feel I do!!!

Thumb Cool, Butler Maps Rep....

....I love your maps and have used them to find backroads around Colorado and Utah. You will have to plan on coming out by motorbike next trip and stop by or stay!!! I did the Moab by Night this summer w some of my good friends from Texas who came for a visit, quite the fancy huge jet boat, seats 144 passengers. It is really geared towards the older folks, large tour groups...I guess we qualified, we had a good time, lol. But we really enjoyed the jet boat trip where we got to blast down to the confluence of the Green and the Colorado to pick up the canoes and boaters, and then up the Shaffer Trail into the Island in the Sky Natl Park. Hope to see you in town!!

Thumb Love to see you here

Good to here from you, hope you make it this way. Want to plan a DS trip thru capitol reef, Torrey, RT 12 to Boulder, Escalante, Burr Trail and back to Moab? Been a couple of years and missing the views.

Well I just stayed at Marcia's..........Awesome! It was a very pleasant experience and I will be back there in a week or so when I come back through the area. The room is very clean and quiet at night. Marcia is a wealth of info about the area and when I asked her where I could get a good Mexican meal she said follow me......we had a nice walk from her place to the center of town and had a great dinner. She is taking things "one step at a time" and is doing a great job. If you want a change from the high priced motels in Moab stop by and see her. BTW the room has a giant tub that will soak out any road soreness you may have!
