Alright everyone. I hope you’ve had enough time to unpack after Moab! Now it’s time to repack for the Utah 300! The trip will be from the night of 5/19 or morning of 5/20 to 5/22.
I will be leaving camp at 9 am on Friday the 20th. So do what you need to do to get there by then. Either come camp with me one extra night on Thursday night or show up early Friday morning and join the caravan! I am doing the camping option Thursday night so people from out of town(CO, NM, ID, etc.) have a place to meet that need to come early to make the starting time.
Camp Thursday night will be at the Utah Rampage spot;) SST Vets will recognize the name. Down broad canyon rd. South of 5 Mile pass and Fairfield. I would recommend getting to five mile pass and then heading south. It’s prettier than driving by the dump in Fairfield.
There are a few spots along Broad Canyon road. I am hoping the big flat grassy spot that is at those coordinates will be vacant since it will be a Thursday night. But if I’m not there. Look around. I’ll be close by and will make myself visible.
Check the post below for more info. Like I said, I hope we get lost. So please bring extra fuel, tools, parts, water, food, etc. Please try to be self sufficient. The group will always wait and help, but I don’t want to lay under your car as much as you don’t want to lay under mine😁 XOXo.
It should be a fun route again this year. Quite a bit faster than the Moab caravan. But I’ll try to keep us together as much as possible😁
Hope to see a lot of you soon!
Utah 300. May 20th-22nd. West Desert dirt run. I am thinking of meeting early Friday morning in Utah County or maybe having a camp spot on the west side of Utah Lake picked out for Thursday night so people coming from further away can roll in and have a place to sleep before the start. Or maybe a mix of both. I have a route in mind. But it is all subject to change depending on weather, what vehicles come, if camp spots are taken, my mood, etc 😁. But, plan on 3 days of dirt roads, desolate places, fun, and some unknown. General plan is to head a bit south and a bit west…. Haha Last time we stopped into Delta and at the Border Inn on Hwy 50 for gas. Not much else out there. So extra gas is needed. Besides that I plan to be around hwy 50 looking at cool places. Maybe head up toward Dugway in search of aliens…. We will see. Please come prepared. Extra gas, tools, spare parts, spare tire, camping stuff, food, water, garbage bags, Etc. Etc. Be a good Eagle Scout and BE PREPARED. I HOPE we get lost. So be prepared for that too😁 More info to come. But I wanted to get the dates out there. Here are some pics from the last one. Before the Covid times. It was a very good time. *No trailers allowed*😎 https://www.facebook.com/groups/167995140457698/permalink/1004859593437911/Audrey JonesModeratorMay 10, 2022 at 8:07 amPost count: 1119

I didn’t realize that hot spring spot was from this trip! I remember Corporate sending me that pic and asking her if they went on a tropical vacation!! 😍ColeBModeratorMay 10, 2022 at 8:41 amPost count: 2623
Just a warm spring. But it’s nice in spring. And the swim back into the cave is crazy! Bring a light to swim back therePat KModeratorMay 10, 2022 at 11:43 amPost count: 2851

Wayne and Rodney are in. Derek too. Maybe badger. Might be a smaller group. But that’s not a bad thing. We can go fasterAudrey JonesModeratorMay 11, 2022 at 7:40 amPost count: 1119John JonesModeratorMay 11, 2022 at 7:50 amPost count: 10903

Not quite… I don’t think this group would keep up. More sightseeing this trip too. Not just a big whirlwind. Should be fun. Warm springs are high on the list again!

Haha I bet a Utah Shasta would be interesting, much higher stakes!
This sounds like a super fun event, Cole. I’d love to see some of your secret camp spots in this trip. Bummed I can’t go, I’ll be in Flagstaff for Overland Expo tomorrow through Monday 🙁Audrey JonesModeratorMay 17, 2022 at 11:47 amPost count: 1119ColeBModeratorMay 17, 2022 at 2:49 pmPost count: 2623
I feel like I’ve been pretty good about being safe… but still having fun. But you gotta push the line to find it I suppose… so maybe I haven’t done a good enough job yet… I know the Gemini jump was over the line… never again. Still gives me the heebie-jeebies… other than that I’ve done good. 😁
this trip should be fun! I’m thinking I’ll leave Pleasant grove/Lehi/American Fork area around 6pm Thursday evening to head out to the first camp spot. Should only take a little over an hour from the warehouse/surrounding area. There was talk of grabbing in n out and then heading out at 6. But we will see what happens.
Audrey/anyone is welcome to the warehouse anytime! I should be around the warehouse working all of Thursday until I head out.
