    Always a great trip that has become a annual trip for the family now. We are hoping to make it again this year as last year was loads of fun. Really incourage anyone thinking about bringing the family to do so as the Ranch is a great place for kids with the pools, horses, quads etc. A short drive back into Zion and lots to see and do there. Looking forward to it, Thanks for getting us involved!

    I want to take the family there. Would a 4seater Polaris RZR be to big to bring instead of quads?

    I tried to make this last year and was unable.
    Hopefully this year so here is a question:
    What fuel range would I need?
    I don't have a GPS...is there going to be any unofficially led rides?
    Recommendations for a map to use?
    Thanks

    Fuel Range: I always recommend that everyone carry enough fuel for 150 miles, however most rides will not be that far betweeen gas stations.

    Rides: Typically what happens is that everyone breaks up into groups depending on where they want to go so I would say that a GPS is not necessary if you are not riding solo. Friday and Saturday will have multiple options for group rides.

    Maps: I have been leaning towards the National Geographic Trail Maps. I will post a list of maps later. We will be riding in some areas that will have Ranger Stations and we will stop there to pic up local maps.

    would a 2003 WR450 street legal bike with extra 1 gal rotopax fuel tank be appropriate for this rally?

    I previously asked about range and the answer was 150 miles recommended range for your bike. I don't know the range of your bike, but I would assume you would have it covered.

    I am up in the air right now. I will either be on my KLR650 or my R1200GS. I will be leading a group ride on Friday that will be Big Bike Friendly and Lonny will lead a Big Bike Friendly ride on Saturday. His rides tend to be geared towards the more experienced Big Bike Rider.

    Hey all, I am super excited about coming out to Zion this year. I attended the Death Valley NooBs Rally and had a blast. I will be bringing my KLR 650. Looking forward to this.
