Just found out that I will be able to make it on Thursday and Firday. I know sign up was closed on the 20th, any way a newbie could still get in?

I don't see why not! T-shirt ordering has closed as of last week, but I'm sure we can take registrants for a longer time.

We'd love to have ya out!

Figuring out your accommodations a bit late

A good bit of participants stay at the Redstone Inn and the Big Horn Lodge across the street, but we also get our reservations in about 6 months ago. They're the most Jeep friendly that I've run across. There's also Canyonlands Campground next door to the south, they have cabins and campsites with hookups and showers.

For camping, there is a fair amount around, might have to go further out from the center of town. Sand Flats Recreation Area is probably full, but might be worth a try.

I'd definitely call around to get a reservation though.

Welcome to the world of working in hotels, don't get much advance notice of days off! I will be getting in about 3am Thursday and have to take off Friday after the trail runs. Camping pad in the back of the WJ might just have to be the option I go with if I can't track down a camp site. Look forward to meeting everyone I will be the one that looks like a bum brushing his teeth in a parking lot.

Did you head out of town some where or just find a parking lot? I had some friends there a week ago and they said that a hotel let them camp right there in the roof top tents. I got it all installed a few weeks ago I am loving it! Great design! Not the cleanest install but still got is on, got a few other things done as well. How r the rubi axels coming along?

I've slept overnight in the dirt lot behind the Maverick convenience store down south toward the KOA Kampground. Do the right thing and spend some money there, and leave it cleaner than it was when you arrived

I've got a handheld you can use - it'll cost you 8 AA batteries.
