I'm penciling this in. Thanks for organizing 94.

Hi @NinetyFour and magical MOAB peeps, this event sounds wonderful. I'm currently planned to be out of the country until '24, but would love to attend in '24 if more magic happens. Until then, hoping you have a wonderful time this year.

MOAB would be my first MMM meetup more than 10 miles from home. Can't think of a better way to see such a beautiful place for the first time.

H/t to Dicey for mentioning this to me (thanked her directly in journal).

We are close to pulling the trigger on a Denver suburb Airbnb for mid-Aug to mid-Sept. If we do we will attend the meetup enroute to my wife's grandparents house in southern AZ. I'm excited at the prospect of getting back to the West for the first time since our daughter was born and my hip surgery.

This is a Public Service Announcement for all Moab Meetuppers who might have an interest in hiking poles. $34.99 is a hard-to-beat price and a great way to try them out for minimal investment. Don't delay, you can always return them if you change your mind, but you can't get them once they're gone from Costco.

Thank you! I got mine yesterday!

I also acquired the knowledge of which Costco locations in the area do not carry this item, lol!

Question for those in the know: is flying into Canyonlands airport a reasonable or a dumb idea? Are there any shuttle buses from Moab to the parks, or a rental is a must?

My current options are to fly in DEN or SLC and renting a car there. If I can get around the parks without renting a car, flying to CNY may worth consideration.

The flight is astounding - well worth it! Last year, 94 picked us up from the airport, but I think you can also get a hire car there.

 

Wow, a phone plan for fifteen bucks!
