|Lbear||I'm planning to go the second or third week in September if anyone is game. The Easter Jam is too much of a zoo for me, personally. I want to do the trails at my leisure and not part of a long line (no disrespect to others who see the advantages of the coordinated run). I have a stock Rubicon and plan to do the easier stuff like White Rim Trail and maybe Chicken Corners, etc. Hoping to shoot a lot of photographs. If interested let me know.|

Depending on where you go and what you want to do I have found it best (personally) to go during the "off" times - Rubicon or Moab. Typically the services are more expensive during the events, there are way too many people, the trail/s are crowded, etc.
Rubicon is one long train of vehicles and there are a lot of rock stacks so all can make it through.
For me the off times are best because I can take a leisurely trip and stop on the trails, the food and lodging is less and there are less drunks on the trail.
I would like to go either to Moab. Rubicon or Death Valley again in the spring.

|Rugbyduck||I'd love to go to Moab, but it just seems like Easter weekend is just far too much $$. I looked into it for this year and was slightly aghast that each run was $50 sign up. Even at 4 runs...well..you do the math. The camping vs motel thing, wore me out looking. I guess I really need to sit down with guys who have done it to really get my head around the best things to do. It's a "must do" at some point soon!|

|99er||I've never done the Rubicon and am planning on a summer trip. Probably do the Jeepers Jam in late July. Anyone else from Oregon planning to go?|

Yeah, since this is my first time going to Moab, I would be up for heading down there during EJS, it may be a little bit of a tourist trap, but since they will have guides and a repair shop, it may be easier for a first time novice. The registration does not open up until sometime January, maybe we can chat about it during/after one of the Wrangler Forum meetings....

|jonster||In my opinion Easter is not the time to go to Moab if you want to take a more relaxed time on the trails. We usually go in May. There are so many things to do there and so many different trails it is really good for any type rig.|

I have always dreamed of Moab....if only for the change of scenery. I love the desert.
Not ruling anything out, just considering other options for those that fear the 16 hour drive (rookies).

So does this mean I'm going to Moab alone?
The official Jeepers Jamboree in the Rubicon is in July but there are other groups that go on different dates and on a smaller scale. The spring may leave lots of snow around. I'm down if people are going for that too.

|scottmphoto||Would the Rubicon be snow-free and warmish in the Spring?|

oh my butt!

|jesse.lewis||After seeing the open diffs comment, Moab sounds good. Open diffs and re-treads. Only way to roll.|

|scottmphoto||I think EJS would be an awesome trip....only concern would be crowded trails, overpriced accommodations, etc etc|

So, after briefly looking at the informative PDF file from the Red Rocks website, it looks like the registration for the 2013 Easter Jeep Safari opens up January 20, 2013. (Of course this is assuming the world doesn't end in three weeks based on the Mayan calendar, of which, the real tragedy won't be the world ending, but rather not having been to Moab in a Jeep before the world ends.)
Anyhow, we still have some time to decide if we are going, how many people are going, etc. etc. Also, this is assuming we participate in the Easter Jeep Safari. If we just go it alone in Moab on some other date, then we just do whatever on our own. The joy of EJS I take it is to check out some cool rigs, cool trails, and cool people, not to mention the event provides guides and support in case stuff happens. I have never been, so I am certainly no expert at this, but I figure if we are planning, we have some time before Jan. 20.
All the best-

|banks316||Im down for the easter event|

No Easter week for me...
I'd like to go to Moab with a group from here. But I cant do the Easter Week Safari. Business trip that week.
|12-02-2012 06:46 PM|
So are there people looking to go to Moab 2013? If so, are we thinking the Moab Easter Jeep Safari or just a random weekend of going? If the goal is the Easter Jeep Safari, the registration and trail maps will open up this month. Registration will be first come, first serve and according to the Red Rocks website, groups will not be accommodated any longer. Instead, you are supposed to gather your group early and register with everyone selecting the same trails. I am down for it, but just wondering if anyone else wants to go.
All the best-

We could also consider the Rubicon if that would work better.
