Save the Date! Moab 2018

***October 9th - 13th, 2018***

is holding the 35th Anniversary Celebration of the introduction of the XJ in 1983 on October 9th-13th, 2018 in Moab, Utah. The BOD has set the dates for the Moab event in 2018 and they want you to start saving your pennies for fuel, saving your precious vacation time, and wrenching on your junk, to prepare for this event.

If you have never been to Moab or only go every 5 years, this is the event to plan to attend.

There will be more information coming along as plans are set in stone, as well as an event forum, the BOD wants to get the dates out now. If you are interested in planning, helping, trail guiding or anything else that goes into making a event successful, please email or PM me. If you are a NAXA sponsor and are interested in being apart of this event, please PM me or sponsorship as we'll be coordinating efforts for opportunities for vendors. In the coming days, I will be getting in contact with those who have helped in the past to see if they would like to help again in 2018.

To get an idea of what to expect, you can find the event forum for the 2013 event by clicking on this sentence.

It's well worth the trip. Only 488 days left!

Re: Save the Date! Moab 2018

Talked with the Warden last night and I would say we are at about a 95% "go" rate right now. Just a few more things to check out but I would definitely plan on seeing us there in one rig or the other. Been a plan of ours to get there since doing ColoradoFest in 2011. We need the experience again!

Re: Save the Date! Moab 2018

Moab is one place that I would go to if I could only afford to make one trip next year.

Re: Save the Date! Moab 2018

I would love to go. I don't think my wife would want to go. And it ll probably be a good idea to find a tow rig to haul the XJ all way over there. That and bring 10 spare driveshafts. Lol

Re: Save the Date! Moab 2018

With folks being so spread out, it's probably not feasible to hire a carrier to haul a bunch of us out and then just fly to meet them. Or is it? Anyone ever try that?

Re: Save the Date! Moab 2018

I'd be interested in something like that. It would probably take me about a week just to get there in my jeep.

Save the Date! Moab 2018

Sounds like a decent idea. I was considering taking like 2 weeks off for it and trailering the jeep. I’m fortunate in that I️ can get a fair time of work off but hiring a hauler and flying might almost cost more...

Save the Date! Moab 2018

So far from the mwc the best prices we have found are $1500-$1800 round trip per rig.
