Also just checked my email and there is no number listed, just says Smith group. So I'm assuming my site is between 108 and 113 but not sure how that was figured out, or I guess 94 knew which ones she requested maybe. Does everyone else' email give them an exact Site #?

Good question, I was wondering how everyone got site numbers also.  I asked when booking and was told she was not assigning us a site but we would be at the top of row 3. 

Email just says this

Arriving:        18 Oct 2018                Adults: 2                Site Type: CAN Premium PT FHU 50AMP       

Departing: 22 Oct 2018                Vehicles: 0        Group Name: Smith Group

I asked for a site next to CanuckExpat, so I was told a specific number.

Nice! That's all of Row 8 booked to Mustachians.

Let's start filling row 7, and the last RV spot in row 6. :D

Row six also has cabins to fill up! For anyone who doesn't want to tent or RV:
"The cabins have two sets of bunk beds that have a double on the bottom and a twin on the top. With the exception of our handicap cabin that has 3 twins and only one double. Our cabins also have A/C, heater, mini refrigerator, T.V., picnic table, and fire pit. The restrooms and showers are two rows away. "


I asked for a site next to CanuckExpat, so I was told a specific number.

That's funny, you made me check my email, and we don't have a site number in the email. Didn't think about it until this conversation. But good to know we probably have one

Clarification: Thread title says 18th, the post I quoted says the 19th. Which is it?  I didn't mention dates, just the group name and she knew which one.
Yep, my bad.  In my quoted post, I should have put Oct 18.

My reservation is for arrival Thur Oct 18, leaving on the morning of Mon Oct 22.

It also shows "Smith Group" even though I asked for a specific site in row 7.  It doesn't matter.  This will be fun.

I just change my reservation to Row G as I am staying longer than the event and I like those sites better so I figured I would save myself the hassle of moving camp. It's a 30 sec walk from the "Smith Group" tents in Row 8 to the "Outer Reaches" in Row G.

I asked them to leave my Row 8 site held for the Smith Group if anyone wants it.

What's the actual cost per day for these things, anyways? I just booked and they charged a $61.something deposit, but I realized I have no idea what the cost per night is.  We probably will want to stay longer, and if this place books up, I might just want to book a few extra days on the front or back end now, before those days sell out (even if that's 5 months from now or whatever).  Could cancel those days later anyways, I suppose and get a refund.

Also I never got a emailed receipt as promised. Did anyone else not get one? Maybe they typo'd my email when recording it?

Deposit is one night. So what ever they charged you is the nightly cost for your site.

I got two emailed receipts (saying same thing but with different names)

Is this mostly a hiking or mountain biking adventure? Or both?

I am a cyclist, but haven't done much mountain biking. But I can train for it beforehand. I am actually excited to possibly try some "real" mountain biking, being from flatland Florida and all. We do have some mountain biking trails around here. I have mostly done the easy inter-trail rock filled roads between the real trails on my hybrid bike, and have also gone riding on a beach path with hard packed sand (interspersed with some soft patches so requires some skill there) also on my hybrid bike.

Is there any paddling (canoeing/kayaking) around there as well?

Although the best part of this trip is to celebrate 94's retirement and hang out with cool (current and future) FIREees.

Yes to all of the above. You can bike, hike and paddle in the Moab area.

A couple weeks at a time and 4 visits wouldn't scratch the surface. I've been going for 25yrs. Love the place. I just bike. Haven't even gotten around to paddling or hiking.

I'm tempted to book extra random nights that month, but with a gap in between. So we can boondock, then go there and dump/fill up and stay for a bit, then boondock, then go back, etc.

Mix staying there every little bit for a night (plus the 4 MMM nights) with mostly boondocking in the nearby area.

I searched for hostels in the Moab area to supplement the days I am not with the group camping and found this hostel. It had good reviews on Trip Advisor and Yelp.

The dorm rooms and private rooms are very cheap.

They also have houses that can house 10-20 people. It looks like an interesting alternative.

Does anyone have any experience with this hostel?

I do not have experience with it, but there's a good chance I will be in Moab in the next few months, and could drop in and check it out, if that would help.

I had a friend stay there. There general vibe I got from his feedback was that it was cheap and okay, but on the rundown side of what you might expect from a hostel.

The only time I was ever in Moab was when I was camping there in early Sept, a few years back.  We normally do car/tent camping.  However, for that trip, we were in a rented RV.  (We don't normally rent RVs, but I found a sweet $1 RV repositioning deal that I couldn't refuse.)

Even though we were in an RV, as I recall, the night time temperatures in Moab were perfect for tent camping.

Well, I just looked it up, and I'll admit it....I didn't realize how cold the nights in Moab will be, at the time of year of our MMM meetup.

The average low is not much above freezing.
37 F  /  3 C
 
My eventual plan is to buy a RV/travel trailer for road trips when both my wife and I are retired.
I do enjoy tent camping and I don't think I want to accelerate my RV/travel trailer purchase plans just yet.

So, it looks like I'll need to purchase some type of heater for my tent.  Brrr.

You can get a personal space heater for pretty cheap https://www.walmart.com/ip/Soleil-Personal-Electric-Ceramic-Heater-250-Watt-MH-01-Black/54562671?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&wl13=3762&adid=22222222227052822078&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=151777312295&wl4=pla-263800053309&wl5=1016103&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=local&wl12=54562671&wl13=3762&veh=sem

You would just need a small battery pack you can plug into to and place it somewhere you can reach from your bag so you can tun on before you get out of the bed to remove the chill.

Ok we're in. I've left a message at the resort to make a reservation but they seem to be working really slow this time of year (can't say I blame them). Ideally I'm aiming for RV site 74-76 as we have a small rig and don't need a sewer hookup. I'll update the big list when I get confirmation. Unfortunately my wife can only get one day off work so we'll be arriving Thursday and need to leave Sunday afternoon to drive back to Denver.

I'd love to organize (note: not "guide" as liability is a funny thing) a group adventure if people were interested. A couple ideas for unique things I'm qualified for:

1) Canyoneering, maybe this one: https://www.roadtripryan.com/go/t/utah/moab/uturn http://climb-utah.com/Moab/uturn.htm ? Think of it as a short but very steep 2 mile hike in Arches National Park away from all the people where you get to do a couple easy bolted rappels. Not at all recommended for those with a fear of heights. There are a ton of beginner friendly canyons in the Moab area, some I've done and some I haven't. I have all the ropes and hard gear for the rappelling, and I have the webbing for 2 extra harnesses but beyond that you'd need to bring your own harness and helmet. If other people had experience and wanted to do something more challenging I'd love to do that too!

2) Rafting. Whitewater is my big sport and I've guided rafts for years. There is a Class I/II river with one class III rapid called the Fisher Towers section just upstream of Moab on the Colorado: https://www.canyonvoyages.com/fisher-towers-day/ I've never run it before but it's a very family friendly stretch (they say good for 4+ years old). The one problem is it could be fairly cold that time of year. We can rent a paddle raft and bring our own food for about $25-30/person for a full day adventure that I could steer vs. about $60-$80pp if you went with one of the local outfitters.

I'm down and will bring all my gear, I have a second harness , atc and helmet as well as ropes. This is right up my alley and how cool that the routes are bolted.

My little brother just bought a chunk of camping gear, and in it, there was a harness and shoes. Haven't done anything more than bouldering, but it might be an option.

I will be up for rock climbing for sure and more than happy to setup top-ropes for people who have little or no experience with the sport, provided that they at least have harnesses, shoes, and helmets.

2) Rafting. Whitewater is my big sport and I've guided rafts for years. There is a Class I/II river with one class III rapid called the Fisher Towers section just upstream of Moab on the Colorado: https://www.canyonvoyages.com/fisher-towers-day/ I've never run it before but it's a very family friendly stretch (they say good for 4+ years old). The one problem is it could be fairly cold that time of year. We can rent a paddle raft and bring our own food for about $25-30/person for a full day adventure that I could steer vs. about $60-$80pp if you went with one of the local outfitters.

Those both sound awesome. Do we have to pick only one? :)

I just booked a cabin (I think I'm the first one in a cabin?!) online - 18th-22nd. If I am still in Colorado, I (or me and SO) will probably drive over the mountain with some gear... if I'm not in CO (which is quite possible), I will likely come along solo, and go the more expensive route of flying into SLC and renting a car.

I've lived ~6-7 hours from Moab my entire life, visited the area as a young kid, and driven through it as an adult, but never really checked it out, and I am super excited to combine the awesome surroundings with a weekend of old and new mustachian friends.

I have never done any canyoneering, rafting, or mountain biking, but I am definitely interested in hiking and walking in the parks, if not more adventurous new things as well.

@kudy I'll be heading north to I70, since it seems faster. If you do wind up driving, feel free to let me know if you want to caravan.

This sounds like fun. Never been to a meetup. Good excuse to get out to one of my favorite places.

I'm disappointed to say I just cancelled my reservation and will not be coming to Moab for the meet up. State finals of my kids sports team was announced for that same weekend in my home town and I'm a team coach. Poor timing. Hopefully I can meet up another time with MMMers.

I'm interested in this - do you know if we can do extra vehicles in one reserved spot? i.e. could I add onto someone's reservation and I pay a portion of the fee?    I have a Transit Connect, size of a mini van, and I sleep in this.  It's a bit ridiculous to pay $44 a night + tax for just myself.

Hey 94, I may be bringing a tent after all on this trip. I'm still reserved for your site, right?

PTF. Since it looks like I'm staying in Cali for awhile and only doing short trips sans Barkinator I'm hoping I can make this too. Also have a mini van but still too far out to make plans but will likely come with BF.

ETA just tried link but didn't work. Prob my phone as it seems to be messed up.

That would be awesome.

I'm sure I'm not alone in these thoughts.

Let me know if you want to share a spot.  I need to be down in LA on Sept 17th and was planning on slowly making my way across the SW to moab.  Will need to head back home pretty quick after Moab (assuming I still have a job at that point - it's day to day right now.).

I'm officially registered for one of the tent sites - Row 7, I think.... waiting for confirmation email.

Well I tried to make a reservation, and we are too big for the park. :-(  But that doesn't mean we can't be thereat a different park. 

We'll stay in touch with this group so we can link up while we're travelling

Hey, Moab is approaching!

I may arrive in Utah a week earlier and would be up for meeting up with people and seeing some of the other parks in the area.

Looking forward to seeing you, Daisy.  I will most likely get out to the Moab area early, as well, since I live relatively close by.

I hope everyone else still plans to attend and is looking forward to hiking, or biking, or relaxing, or all of the above!!
