EJS 2014 JKO & Vendor runs

So, Crawl Magazine is doing their readers ride on Tuesday at AreaBFE.

Are any vendors or JKO going to do a Sunday, Monday or Wednesday run?

Nothing scheduled yet but we wanna put something together... a JKO run would be rad but Lance said he didn't want to organize one this year. Maybe if we shit talk him enough right here he will decide to do some work... Retirement must be nice:/

I've never met an entrepreneur who has been able to permanently retire to leisure.

We could just name the meeting place, the day, the time, target a good trail and do it.

Well, I'm probably going to do Pritchett on Sunday because I like doing it forwards and backwards as an in-and-out trail. Unless you run Pritchett starting after about 1 pm, it will only be available Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday.

I'll probably do Metal Masher on Monday.

Golden Spike, Rusty Nail, Poison Spider, and Gold Bar Rim are open Wednesday and Friday.

I'll probably do either Rusty Nail or all three Poison Spider, Golden Spike and Gold Bar Rim on Wednesday.

I tend to travel at a good pace. So, really large groups I'd split up by how fast people want to go.

Out and back Pritchett on Sunday makes a lot of sense. I'm in for that. Thats a good one to do as a group--not too long.

Wed sound good too. Usually we do the same---head up Rusty nail, come down Gold Bar Rim.

I also want to get in a high speed run on Behind the Rocks.

Planman, are you bringing your buggy? Britney Spears calls..Black Flag too.

Bob, kent and jen, me, Greg will all be staying at the KOA in our buses.

Depends on the weather.

Planning on the JK, but have been looking at pics and videos of Black Flag and Brittany Spears and hear the challenge calling.

I'll be at Slickrock in the toyhauler with a friend who has a V8 juggy on 40s.

If you end up doing Metal Masher on Monday, a buddy of mine and I will see you out there. We signed up for our trails a couple of weeks ago.

You bring up a good point: can more than one trail be run in a day? The online signup limits you to one trail per day... if you pay your daily access fee, can you run other trails than the one you signed up for (should the run end early)? This will be my first time out in Moab... I hope to learn the ropes before we get out there.

I'd like to see a JKO run put together... Subscribing to stay on top of the plans.

This year will be my first time in Moab as well and I have the same question. Can you do more than one trail each day? If so, how do you know how long each trail will take or do you just ballpark it by the description?

EJS 2014 JKO & Vendor runs

We've never signed up for trails for EJS. Instead we usually get together with friends or a vendor group or a magazine group and do trails. We frequently do more than one trail a day. Sometimes three or four.

The only thing is, as Planman pointed out, many trails are closed part of the day on certain days. So we work around those.

Trails time depends on group size, experience of drivers, capability of rigs, and breakage. In general when things go right, any individual trail doesn't take long (an hour to a few hours each). However a combo like poison slider, golden spike, gold bar rim makes for a very full day.

Hells revenge, which is a must do if you've never been there, can take less than a couple hours, if things go right.

Bummed to hear from Lance there isn't a JKO run this year. Our schedule is filling up so hoping you guys make something happen. JK-Forums run is Monday and JKFreaks are maybe thinking Wednesday.

If you run in a relatively large group, one trail per day is about what you get because the group spreads out on the trail like a big "slinky," inevitably, someone will break something, and often, too many people make too many attempts at obstacles before moving on.

If you run in a smaller group, with rigs built appropriately for the trail, many of the trails in Moab can be run in 2-4 hours. So, you can do as many as 3 trails in a day.

When we've gone as a family and taken three of our jeeps and met up with a few more--so the size of our group was 6-8 at best--we've regularly done 3 trails a day.

You can do Hells Revenge in the morning in a few hours, then grab fast food at a drive-through and do Moab Rim in a few hours (going all the way to the end at the sand hill), and then run Cliffhanger in a few hours. Then, head back to the Moab Brewery for dinner.

People commonly do Poison Spider, Golden Spike, and Gold Bar Rim in a day. This is often called Triple Threat.

People do Pritchett Canyon and then Behind the Rocks backwards in a day. I've done Pritchett forwards and backwards, and then did Moab Rim in a day.

People do Metal Masher in the morning, and then do Rusty Nail and the end of Golden Spike, and then Gold Bar Rim in a day.

It isn't as possible to take a group of more than about 12-15 rigs through trails fast enough to 3 in a day--except for Triple Threat.

RR4W run very large groups instead of splitting them up to smaller groups and then staggering them by rig/driver capability and speed preference.

Guys

We got the news from Lance as well so PSC and RK are working on getting two trail rides organized. One on Monday and one on Wednesday. I believe we are working on Steel Bender for Monday and Pritchett for Wednesday. Don't worry Pig, your guys can come along again. Pretty cool guys...

I'm not with JAO anymore, but wouldn't mind meeting some of you goons in person if you don't mind my trail rig... a stretched, locked, three-linked decently built YJ tagging along.

We're leaving KY the afternoon of Thursday the 10th, arriving either late evening or early morning Saturday and staying at Moab Rim RV Park & Campgrounds.

Two official EJS runs. One on Pritchett Canyon on Tuesday and Hell's Revenge on Big Saturday since I know a couple of the trail guides for that ride. Pirate run on Rusty Nail on Friday.

So at this point, I'm keeping my schedule open for the arriving Saturday. Also free on Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday. Monday, I sort of have something scheduled, but I'm open to changing it if something better comes along. Also, love night runs any day of the week.

I am already leading runs (as usual) on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, but have always joined and contributed for the JKO Woody's party afterwards. Will be happy to still do, if it's on?
