Just caught wind of this thread.
This sounds fun! One of my few regrets with my '81 was never getting it to Moab.

It's about a 600 mile trip, so not really too bad. And yeah, a patch of dirt for a tent is more than plenty for me.
I'd also be sticking to mild to moderate trails as, whatever I drive there with, I have to drive home with.


My birthday is May 5th, so if it's around that date, maybe I can swing it as my birthday present.

And a year in advance notice is definitely the way to do it!

Bronco Safari is April 30 to May 5. That is 10 months to prep. That should be sufficient. Don’t plan to over do your prep and you’ll be successful.

Most important thing is to make sure your rig is reliable at the most basic level.

Makes no sense to do axle upgrades, etc and then have your junk breakdown due to overheating or some electrical gremlin that should have been prioritized.

I only have one priority upgrade and that is a compound transfer case - 1.96:1 does not give me any control when crawling.

@Quader1 is right on the money June July and August will be HOT, @AbandonedBronco we sure would love having you come along. Plenty of camping any where really, but Moabrimcampark also allows for tents sites. @Hillbilly Heaven at $109 that coffee pot better produce some damn good coffee....just saying. & i like myself a good cup of campfire brew. @BigBlue 94 not sure what the restrictions are for Utah "especially a year away" but i can say this the entire state of Az is closed to camping travel hiking etc.... except for a few select places but then its still a dumb ass away from a complete state wide bon fire. Its down right dry here. no measurable rain in over 94 days and the last time it rained it only produce .75 inch and had'nt rained prior to that in 47 days. so that .75 inch didn't do a damn thing.

working on the date poll people it will be up by tomorrow this time.

I understand the fire risk all too well. We get some rain, but the high winds dry us out terribly. It's not uncommon on a sunny day to have constant 30mph winds. I've got an msr liquid fuel stove (white gas, unleaded, diesel, kero, paint thinner, etc), so I can still get my coffee and beans.

Right now, at 5:12 cst it's 94°, 60% humidity, and 110° heat index. I'm sweating just sitting here in the shop. Prolly why the heeps go on Easter.

The trip there for me is 900 miles, 13 hours, and 95% is on I70. It's a 75 mph highway from KC to Denver, 600 miles away, and slows to 65 or so through the mountains. I can make it to Denver from Topeka in 8 hours doing 80mph. My bronco can take that, but it's much happier at 70. Plus stopping for gas every ten miles lol

We have time so let it run for months of July and after that close it and tally up the results. During the month members can make their case to the dates they believe the event should be.

Train today for tomorrow's unknown!

So from clicking on the red zone and reading it means no campfires and no smoking outside the confines of a vehicle. When it says campfires does that mean that things like outdoor propane grills and stoves are banned?

Great Question,

I went ahead and put both links into the "Planning Thread" for easy reference.

Here is the other Link that's Moab area Specific.
Item #5 - Permissible Acts covers camp stoves.

So I am in the sitting back, watching plans unfold stage for the time being. At this point, I am a ¨maybe,¨ depending on the dates and the state of my Bronco, as well as my back pocket as we get closer to the trip. It also depends on finding a truck and trailer for Lil' Red, I am pretty confident a 1,300 mile trip would not settle well with Lil´ Red. Ideally spring break Mar. 9th-24th would work best for me, but March will be here before we know it, and again I´m a maybe so don´t plan around me. Sounds like an awesome trip, and something that I would definitely enjoy.

Thanks @White Dragon for taking a lead to get the details all put together.....

I'd likely be down to go almost anytime. So far I think I'm closest at 5 hours / 315 miles so I feel like the plans should be more influenced by our members travelling farther. I also have the luxury of being able to trailer there so I'm open to helping the AZ crew out if you want me to bring extra parts or tools or items for camp. Shoot, you guys need to drive right by my house to get there.

I'd rather avoid 100* temps and big crowds but other than that I am wide open. I can be ready tomorrow

My thoughts as well. Date doesn't matter to me. I can haul a few spare parts and tools. Those from the east could camp at my place if need be. There's 80 acres of space.

I'm thinking a night run would be fun too.

My biggest thought on dates is simply outside temps. A cooler time of the year would be a lot more fun, and easier on the rigs. Otherwise, my schedule doesn't change much throughout the year.

As for the fires, cooking, coffee, etc. if all else fails, these come in handy:

https://www.amazon.com/BESTEK-300W-P.../dp/B004MDXS0U

https://www.amazon.com/Proctor-Silex...lectric+burner


Basically, a 12v to 110v outlet, and an electric burner.

I also use a cigarette lighter to alligator clip converter so that I don't put that much draw on the cigarette lighter port and can take the draw right off the battery:

There's always a way to make things work.

That particular hot plate burner is 1000 watts. The inverter needs to be at that large or larger. The induction hot plates are more efficient but still require large amounts of battery energy.

I don't think any fire ban is going effect anyone using propane stoves or burners. However those that use the Coleman white gas type stoves may have a problem.

A couple of 1 pound cylinders will handle all the cooking time needed.

I have a 450w inverter in all my vehicles, hardwired to the battery. They are great.

Here's the stove I've got:

MSR xgk ex military stove, with two 20oz fuel bottles. It'll run on just about any liquid fuel.

I stand corrected. I was wrong. The use of liquid fuel like Coleman fuel is legal during fire ban.
