goneMOAB FAQ!!!
« on: December 08, 2009, 11:23:27 AM »

www.goneMOAB.com

Answers to some very common questions we get.

When is goneMOAB?
Sunday May 23rd through the Friday May 28th, 2010.

Do I have to register?
Registration is REQUIRED?  We need this information for Our Permits & other documents we are required to have filed out.

What IS included in your goneMOAB registration fee?
1) Organized Trail Rides - Accommodating all skill levels Mild to WILD.
2) Sand Flats Recreation Area Access for trail Runs in that area
3) Friday Night BBQ & Raffle from goneMOAB and its Sponsors
4) Awards Ceremonies/Slide Shows
5) 2 of the 2010 goneMOAB Stickers
6) Full Color goneMOAB Event Guide
7) Swag Bag Full of Sponsor Goodies

What's NOT included in your registration?
1) Lodging
2) Breakfasts
3) Lunches
4) Dinners except the Raffle Night BBQ
5) T Shirts & Extra Stickers

How Old do I need to be to attend?
18 Minimum... NO EXCEPTIONS WHAT SO EVER.  If there is any doubt to your age ID will be requested.  If you are not able to produce and ID you will be asked to leave & not permitted on the trails.

When is the cutoff date for registratoin?
The week prior to goneMOAB event online sales will end.

Can I add guests after I register?
Yep not a problem... just send us a PM/Email and we will get it worked out.

Can I change my trails after I register?
It can be dont just send us an PM/Email and we will get things worked out.  But try to make changes sooner rather than last minute.

Can I buy shirts and stickers later after I register?
Shirts can be purchased later if you choose but they are pre-order only!!  Sales will end the first week of May due to printing schedules. 
Stickers can be purchased later as well.  We may have extras at the event to sell but no guarantee.

Do I need to have a 4x4?
YES!!  There are NO 4x2 friendly trails on the schedule.

Do I need to have a licensed vehicle?
All Vehicles MUST be licensed in their State/Country.  W/insurance & a licensed driver.

Can I only come for a few Days?
You bet cha... not everyone can get a week off.

Do I have to do the Obstacles?
Many Many obstacles have by-passes on the Green & Blue Trails, no driver is ever required to do an optional obstacle (Red Trails have very few bypasses if any).  If you have a particular trail you are concerned about post up about it in our forums.

What amount of money should one bring or set aside? Not including the known expenses, lodging/food/fuel.
Well first there are the raffle tickets (good prizes this year), it's pretty much guaranteed that you will forget something like a good hat, Beer costs more in UT (if you drink).
If you have everything you need beforehand you can do the whole trip(no food/gas ect) for less that $50, but it would be smart to have some money in your account just in you need to replace something on the truck.

Raffle... what is at the Raffle?
Through out the week we sell Raffle Tickets for $10 each, our sponsors donate prizes and the winning tickets get the sponsor prizes.  Prizes range from recovery gear, gift certificates, roof racks, set of tires, shocks it depends on which sponsors we get and what they send. 

Drawing for the Raffle is the last night of goneMOAB at the Condo BBQ & Picture Night in Rim Village.

Can someone give me a sense for what a typical day is like?  For example what time do the events typically start, and generally when are we done?
Most trails start 8 to 9am... Pending no issues on the trail most days are done 3 to 5pm.  The length of the days vary, but there is usually time to walk around town, sightsee, eat, BS with other atendees, and other stuff after each run.

What time and where do we meet in the mornings for each trail?
At the Meet-n-Greet you will be given a trail guide. In it you will find a bunch of useful info including meting times and places for each trail run. If you are not able to make it to the Meet-n-Greet then e-mail me and I will let you know where/when to meet. I will also make sure you get your guide book at the first trail you run.  This guide will also be available in the next couple weeks in a PDF version on the goneMOAB site for early review... probably January.

What is a basic or minimum "kit" to bring along on the trails?  How often do breaks really happen
Well depends on how hard you wheel, if you tend to break stuff elsewhere in the country bring those parts.  Steering parts are normally what we see break if your heavy on the throttle.  Normally 2-4 trucks will break throughout the week.

Do I get my own spotter throughout the event? 
Spotters we have a Trail Leader (spots the front end) and then depending on the size of the group we may have spotters scattered through the line to keep it moving along. The Tail Gunner at the very end is responsible to get whoever may break back up and off the trail and they typically have lots of duct tape, wire, a few parts (hopefully whoever breaks has parts as well) and my portable welder or their own.

What if I need a spot when no one else is getting a spotter?
If someone is brand new to wheeling they go right behind the Leader/Spotter and then more experienced people further back. Usually the spotters are only needed for the bigger obstacles and of course optional lines, but if anyone ever needs em for ANY reason we tell em to holler to the spotter on the CB.
