Hey all! I am the Vice Commander of the Rising Sun 4x4 Club in Colorado (avid 4runner guy none of that LC business lol) and registration for our annual event Cruise Moab is now open! A lot of y'all know who we are a lot may not. We are a Denver based chapter of the Toyota Landcruiser Association. That being said we have a wide variety of Toyota trucks. I drive an 87 runner and an 88 pickup. We'd love to have y'all along, so join us at cruisemoab.com to register!

This year's event will be from Tuesday, April 28th through Sunday May 3rd. Our headquarters will be at the lot just south of and adjacent to Slickrock Campground again. You do not have to stay at Slickrock Campground if you don't want to, it is just the epicenter of the event. The schedule will be the same as the last couple of years with the overnight runs:

Tuesday - Kokopelli Run Starts (3 Days 2 Nights - limit 14 rigs!)
Wednesday - San Rafael Swell Run Starts (2 days 1 night - limit 20 rigs), Registration, Safety Inspection, Drivers Meeting, Hell’s Revenge Night Run!!!
Thursday - Guided Trail Runs, Vendor Night
Friday - Guided Trail Runs, Dinner, Raffle
Saturday - Guided Trail Runs
Sunday - Clean up and go home

We are keeping registration the same as it has been for the past two years: $175 + BLM fees, which are a straight pass-through. We are also passing through the $25/registrant food costs for the overnight runs. Remember, Rising Sun doesn't make a dime on Cruise Moab. We donate 100% of the proceeds to land use (helping keep everyone's beloved trails open) and to improving the event.

Be advised that you must be a current TLCA member to register. We could not have this event without our affordable TLCA insurance, it is a TLCA sanctioned event and therefore you must be a TLCA member. It's only $35.

Scott Yoder and Jeff Zepp are the co-chairing the committee this year. Jeff is doing trail assignments and registration again this year. If you have any questions, please contact Scott or Jeff at the emails above. Please do not PM me here with questions about Cruise Moab, but do feel free to ask questions here in this thread and I will do my best to answer.

Here are some changes from prior years:
(1) We are dropping Pritchett Canyon due to waning interest.
(2) We are dropping Chicken Corner due to waning interest.
(3) We are adding the Pickle (wicked difficult)
(4) We are adding Jax Trax (Moderate)
(5) The Wednesday night run is Hells Revenge (what? Sanctioned Hells at NIGHT?!? Hell ya!)
(6) Attendance of the Wednesday evening driver’s meeting is MANDITORY even if you are a Cruise Moab veteran! We have important new information to disseminate regarding our BLM stipulations, and as part of our permitting, they are requiring us to have each and every driver informed and acknowledge that they have received this new information.

Trail Sponsors to date:

Red Line Land Cruisers (Justin Robbins) – Behind the Rocks (Thursday)
Cruiser Outfitters (Kurt Williams) - San Rafael Swell (Wednesday)
Outdoorx4 Magazine (Stan Wright) - Kokopelli Trail (Tuesday)
Just Differentials (Carl Montoya) - Porcupine Rim - (Friday)
Outer Limit Supply (Travis Hurley) – Cliffhanger – (Saturday)
Slee Off Road (Christo Slee) - Hell's Revenge - (Friday)

I will update the above as the information becomes available.

If you would like to attend, now is a good time to put in for time off from work, if you need a lot of advance notice.

Happy crusin'!

I went last year and plan on going again this year. It's a well put together event by Rising Sun. The campground where they host it is a little too busy/crowded for my taste, but there are tons of places to camp elsewhere. The trail groups can be larger in size, but they still move fairly quickly.

There are folks that come from all over. And it's great to see the all the different rigs.

No Toyotas doing Pritchett! How sad.

There was a decline in interest in the trail. We've run it every year for 15 years I think. The Pickle is supposed to be pretty wicked and newly available for events to run. If I get everything done on my Runner by next year I may run it. Eek. It is kinda sad.

Sweet! We look forward to seeing you out there! Thanks for the compliments. Hit me up at the dinner or on the trail!
