Thanksgiving

Our family holiday shindig is in December so I'm thinking about Moab for Thanksgiving (specifically the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving). I'll be on the Stelvio so no gnarly stuff. It may be chilly brisk but I don't expect any issues with snow. Anyone else game?

I'll be trailering the Stelvio anyways. I'm not keen on the potential for nasty weather enroute, and I like to bring lots of crap with me. I haven't yet figured out how to pack the roof tent on the bike.

I'll be there the same time. Weather is usually good. I think we want to try to ride the white rim rd one of the days.

Any free dispersed camping in the area that would be particularly suitable? I know that there are lots of paid campsites in the area of the parks.

I went out to Moab for Thanksgiving a few years back. My brother in law and I trailered our DRZ's. It was a great time. Enjoy!

Room on your trailer?

Anyone got room on their trailer for a KTM 640A? I could possibly join Friday-Sunday, but don't want to ride there. Happy to share gas expenses.

I'm planning on heading out to Moab on Wednesday afternoon, and returning Sunday. If you'll ride down to the Springs on Wednesday, I have plenty of room.
