    Well.  If there is anything I can do to help out, let me or Audrey know.

    the event is about and for and to Honor Lin Ottinger.  The Tour taker!  The tour maker!👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    I remember when this was a if you know you know event . And everyone was told to keep it on the down low. Sounds like things have changed

    Yes correct, it was supposed to be a low key thing. That started because Moab City told the Ottingers that if we camped again at the Rock Shop they would get huge fines. Sonny moved it to the Warehouse that is in the county, I was trying to help not have the event get lost forever and piss off the county. Never want the Gov’t in your shit, I think you and both know that well John by working for the Gov’t.  That all changed with a Hot VWs feature, viral KCW reels and as you mentioned above, Know why that trip has gained soo much popularity?  KCW, Know why Rugged Radio’s even knows this trip exists?  Audrey’s reels. It has become popular because people come have a good time and share their experiences

    I have never promoted the event as Westy Restorations event, only posted on your forum and on the Utah VW Camping page by creating an event. This is exactly why I created the Lin Ottinger Scenic Tours and Annual Caravan Page on FB, to keep it from the Ottinger’s not anything else. I only wanted to be the messenger, I was constantly asked by many what are the details on the Spring Ottinger event. This is why I created the FB page. I remember a time you hated FB and Instagram and only had the forum for information. Every time someone thanked me for the event I would tell them “Don’t thank me, Thank the Ottingers for continuing the event and KCW for starting this whole thing”.

    Yes its long winded again, I am tired of the jabs. I have tried to be a supporter of KCW, bring business to you, hang out and be part of the crew. I feel like we are all friends but it always seems like there is always undertones of something different. Honestly I went through a lot of shit in my life about a year and a half ago and almost made a choice to no longer live. Because of this I have written off  best friends, my sister, parents and others because I am tired of drama and bull shit in life. Life is too short to deal with it. Maybe the VW scene is next to fall in that line, so much drama in it. Hopefully April will be a great event, maybe it’s best for me to come get pics of Otter and head back to my family for the weekend.

    I thought I would let everyone know on this forum that dispersed camping in Moab is under attack. I have been camping in the area for decades and the camping availability is shrinking. Now the BLM is reviewing 356 identified dispersed camping sites in the Moab area. If anything they have identified camping areas you can go enjoy.

    I can see this area becoming what Behind the Rocks has become, less dispersed and designated only camping. I feel we will be fighting for more of this in the future. I know that the Forest Service is looking to close dispersed camping on Forest  land in Colorado also.

    Please go to the link below and fill out the information at the bottom of the page and submit it.

    Holy Guacamole!!Think everyone is scared to post😂! I think a cool camp out is JUST what we need!!! We all get super fired up about little bits…. I think it’s cuz we care and are passionate about our hobby that ends up being a lifestyle. People protect things they care about. Let’s try to all remember that we are a small group and need to stick together!!!!

    BUUUUUT, if you wanna battle?!?!?!? I’m gonna come to Moab packin a Red Ryder and I’ll take on anybody in some can plinking nonsense!😃👍😃👍😃👍
