Bogley Winter-Fest Moab Area Canyoneering

  • Feb 8, 2013 · 8:00 AM

This event died a natural 'death by mud'. It is breakup time and GJ folks sure don't need to go to Moab for mud.

Bogley Winter-Fest Moab Area Canyoneering

This is not a WSA canyoneering event

but there will be a lot of canyoneers gathered in Moab, there is no other place to RSVP or even just let one another from WSA know who is going so  . . . it is posted here.

To see the 'discussion' so far go to Bogley. Read thechatter there to see what the general ideas are floating around.

This can be a good time for WSA canyoneers to get out there with others besides our usual group to broaden your expereince.

MORE DETAILS TO BE POSTED as they develop.

If anyone has access to a house or condo in Moab where those of us going might be able to stay . . .  please let me know about that.

    I sent a message to the Bogley chat thread about this next weekend's events. Cannot seem to get a reply from Shane or even any feedback or input from anyone on whether this thing is even on or not given the sloppier and sloppier snow and mud. I am on the edge of changing my RSVP to a NO. If I do that I will post something on the WSA calendar for Saturday and go ski at Black Canyon with Suzy and crew on Sunday.

    I'm in Moab today, Feb 2 and to say that it is a mud fest is an understatement. Be aware that it is thick boot sucking mud everywhere.

      Oh thanks for that news, Terri and I cannot possibly imagine things improving much in just a week, especilly since the forecast is for some chance of light snow between now and the BOG FEST weekend.

      I was out hiking in the sandstone and shale hills behind Fruita today. Early in the morning when the ground was frozen it was nice walking. After about 11:30 AM it was all about walking on snow or slickrock to keep from lugging 3# of mud on each shoe.

    Looks like forecast of 48 and 43 for Saturday and Sunday for Moab. Just about perfect. Who wants to drive over togther? Anyone made accomodations plans yet? The Lazy Lizard Hostel has dorm accomodations for $10/person, private rooms for $18/ 1 person. $22/ for 2 people, $27/ for 3 people, etc. Who can stay home for that inexpensive a rate. And, I do know people who have stayed there and pronounced it as nice. http://www.lazylizardhostel.com/html/prices.html

      It may be hard to 'fit-in' by Sunday as I have to guess teams will have been bonding for 2 or 3 previous days and as far as I know there is no formal 'bulletin board' or other communications tool. But . .. hey 1st time for me so what do I know???%@@*&^%
