RamJam 2014 - Moab Utah - 8-12 September (Official Dates)
« on: December 10, 2013, 10:50:05 pm »
It's Official - RamJam 2014 will be held in Moab, Utah; 8-12 September

Inclusive dates are 8-12 September, Monday thru Friday.  Travel weekends on both ends

We're planning a minimum of 5 awesome trails, including 2 hard core runs,  plus night runs, tech sessions, and we're continuing the final night bonfire tradition hosted by our local brother Ken.

There will be tee shirts, decals, giveaway prizes...and a whole lot of great friends and great machines.

I will be giving away one of our ASA Modifieds Cold Air Intakes, with each color available for the winner's choice, and we'll install it right 'there'. 

The activities in Moab will have tapered down, and we stand a good chance of having the trails almost entirely to ourselves.  And those we come across will be awe-struck with the massive number of full size trucks coming their way.  It will be awesome.  8)

Make your rsvp's soon - the hotels, campgrounds, KOA, etc are likely to book up rapidly.

Convoy's and routes will be forming over the next several months.  No matter where you are, chime in - there is a very good possibility you can join others coming in from the four corners of the country, and even farther north from our Canadian brothers and sisters wanting to join us, eh.  ;D

Really looking forward to seeing all of you again, or for the first time.  The evenings after the trails are outstanding times to revell in the day's events - Do be sure to bring your favorite local adult beverages to share with those from out of town.  Don't worry Dave - I'll bring several cold bottles of 1554 for ya  ;)  ;D.

Much, MUCH more to follow.  Stay tuned!

- Sam

    Colin

    ....for Nacho......or for Moab??  ;D  ;D   Thanks Colin - that would be a HUGE help.  I'll keep ya posted  ;) {cool}

    Katy (ramchargerkate) has volunteered to do up the artwork and do the tee-shirts and decals - also a HUGE help {cool}.  We'll have the artwork done and be taking tee-shirt and decal orders soon enough.

    I'll put the general word out for anyone wanting to come - if you want to ping your local off-road establishments and see if they'll give you some schwag for giveaway prizes we'll include those at the bonfire party!

    What - didn't I mention we're gonna hand out door prizes at the Friday night Bonfire gig??  ;D  And because we know some folks can't be there for every day (which is very common) we're going to have giveaways each day before the trail rides.  :D

    Cool - I just booked our KOA cabin {cool} - We're staying in KT42.

    If anyone wants to book a spot at the Moab KOA, the phone number is (800) 562-0372.  You can see the cabins and locations for the tent sites etc here - http://www.moabkoa.com/
     
    Click on Campground Overview, then Map.  The Map downloads in a PDF format.  You can pick a cabin you want and reserve it for your stay.  You will need to pay for it all in advance - just how the Moab KOA rolls.

    I discovered that because we are staying for 8 nights, we get the 7th night free.  Typically the standard cabins are just under $100 a night, and the deluxe cabins are a little more.  We like the KOA because it's off the beaten path, it's very quiet, and at night the view of the stars is extraordinary!

    In years past we've typically stayed in the Cabins labeled K1 through K12 or the deluxe cabins (with their own shower and bathroom, sink etc) labled KT40, 41, 42).

    Of course there are several hotels and other campgrounds to stay at within Moab.

    For those that haven't been there for one of our gigs, I'll explain the 'typical stay at Moab'.

    First off, we take a nice leisurely drive there - take your time - you've got all day.  Get there, park the rig(s) and trailers, and relax with your favorite adult beverage of choice.  Without question we will be congregating around someone's picnic table and the bench racing/crawling begins.

    Next day (trail day 1), we are all on our own options for breakfast.......so long as everyone is at the City Market at 0900 hrs (that's 9 am for all you non-military types  ;) ).  Typically we park along the south east parking lot (on the right rear side of the Market). 

    9am at the City Market - that is the only hard and fast time to remember.  From 9-10 am we all hang out at there while also getting the food and beverages for that day on the trail (usually just something for lunch and a bunch of water and/or Gatorade).  No alcohol on the trail, of course.

    At the same time, many of us will begin airing down the tires and making final preps to the trucks.  There is a filling station right there with both gasoline and diesel and air if anyone wants to fill their OBA tanks.

    Soon as everyone is 'ready', we have a quick driver's meeting, make sure everyone knows which trail we heading to, discuss possibilities for dinner (we usually try to meet together at a good restaurant somewhere in town) and then...start the engines and get it on!  We all convoy to/from the trails. 

    #1 rule - DO NOT LOSE SIGHT OF THE GUY BEHIND YOU.  That is the #1 rule on the trails and convoys.  If someone has a problem, be sure to stop and help.  CB's are highly recommended as that's how we all become aware of a problem, and those that have the tools or parts to lend assisstance can fall back and help.

    For the next several hours, we're having a total blast on the trail  8).  When we're done, we all convoy back, and when we get back to town we all frag out to clean up, or if it's late ehough either head straight to dinner, or back to the campground for a beer and "chillin".

    It is not uncommon for many of the day's video's to make their way onto YouTube that very evening, with comments like "too bad you're not here with us!!" attached to them  ;D

    Meanwhile...if someone has problems with their truck, our local bubba and resident Ken (Moabion) has a well-supplied shop, and has an open invitation to anyone that needs some mechanical assistance and a good safe place to work.  No one is left behind - if there is a problem, we all jump in to get the rig rolling well, and if that doesn't work there are always several offers for that driver to ride shotgun with someone  :)

    When the dust settles, time for some ZZZzzzzzz's.  Next day, we do it all over again, and create a whole bunch more great stories to tell.

    Folks...this stuff is fantastic amounts of fun, and we try really hard to make it as 'easy' for everyone to have big a blast as possible.  You come to the 2014 RamJam, you won't be disappointed.

    I'm full of good and dumb ideas...  I can't decide which this is.

    An inverter (or a 12V) blower with one of those dancing inflated stick men.  Put one in/on the lead or tail vehicles...

    It'd be funny, for a while...

    I remember Ram Jam 1. In the middle of nowhere on the Kansas/Nebraska border.

    Fun time had by all, only one slight misshap when someone took a solo run through the mud, and sprayed the interior of the volunteer fire truck with mud.

    It was hot and muggy, but it was a great time!

    Not that it's a big deal per say but felt I'd chime in here anyway. It's official, my wife and I are going to build a trail rig out of junk laying around here and drive the wreck out, go wheeling and attend our first Ram Jam and hopefully drive it home....only debate now is if we should post a project thread....or just surprise (or horrify) you all at the event LoL

    hey that sounds perfect Norm - sometimes the more 'basic' the machine the more 'fun' they can be - that's kinda how I'm trying to build nacho this time around.  And sure, definitely start your own thread - these projects are fun to follow ;)

    For those that are attending and coming from East of Nebraska on I-80, any and all are welcome to use our place as a stopping point. We are rural just a few minutes off the freeway, lots of room to park, camp if desired. We also have a fully equipped shed with tools and lots of Dodge truck parts if required.

    Given Sam's tentative schedule, we will be here until Sat morning early roughly.   

    Norm

    I should mention, we are Rural near the 353 Exit York Nebraska. Knew I forgot something LoL

    looking fwd to this!  this will be my first trip to Moab and I have a few questions for the veterans

    I've done some searching but I haven't been able to find a really good answer.

    how does a person get to and from the trails if your off road rig isn't street legal?

    from what ive read the authorities seems to leave people alone as long as your not acting like a douche and your not driving your rig on the interstate. is this true? does it apply to driving in town?
     
    are there staging areas at the trail head where you can park your tow pig and trailer? is it a huge pain in the ass to try and do things this way? from what i understand a lot of trails don't start and end at the same spot?

    how about registration and insurance? is it mandatory off the road? 

    my rig isn't a 4 wheel death trap but it will deff have a hard time "blending in" would like to have this figured out before i show up.

    thanks for your help

    yup, you can haul the rig to the trailheads, and/or calmly drive them to'from the trailer, and I've never seen any problems driving to/from town, but then again I'm not sure any of the rigs I've wheeled with there were not street legal(ish).  Ken (Moabion) would know for sure.  But yes there is 'room' at the trailheads for parking a rig/trailer.

    how about registration and insurance? is it mandatory off the road? 

    Honestly I don't know - Another great question for Ken.  Ken???????

    thanks for your help

    most certainly {cool}  :)

    For my first trip I had, a truck, a tent, a lantern, a sleeping bag, some food, a camera, and some cash. The second trip I had a truck and enough camping stuff to tent it for a whole week (we were there 4 days.)

    Other than those things I would suggest some sunscreen, any medications you may take regularly, and a good sense of humor.

    The guys are great to get together with and more than willing to help out, or share, with just about anything from a ride to mechanical help to a beer in the evening.

    ...when you say 'needed' - do you mean for the truck, or for yourself?  :)  As far as the trails...really I think the most important part of the truck will be good tires, and the induction system.  Some of the obstacles can get pretty steep - EFI is always prefered but not essential.  Lockers are not 'mandatory' because most of the big stuff has a bypass, and if not there's always someone with a winch.

    As far as 'lodging', there's the usual motels, campgrounds, and the KOA, and each have their pros and cons.  Personalyl I really like the KOA mostly because there isn't any pavement in sight, and it's out the south end of town and very quiet.

    Any questions please don't be shy to ask - more information is always better then less for a trip like this {cool}

    no problemo - ask away  :) .  Depending on which way you come down, you'll have to go over the Rockies sooner or later, and there can be some snow on the highway that early in the season but it's not likely.

    As far as tires...well there's of course a huge number of options, however I put in a plug for the BFG AT/KOs all-terrains.  We've driven our Ramcharger to Moab two years in a row, done the trails (and not just the easy stuff), and driven home with fantastic results.  For an all-terrain tire, the BFG is pretty hard to beat, and they air down nicely for very confident crawlin'. 

    Your 'stock' Ramcharger will do just fine at Moab.  And on the days we'll be doing the harder core trails (where lockers and winches are common) you can still very likely do the trails or also as likely - ride with someone else.  I'm not sure how many are coming with me in my crewcab so I can't offer ride-alongs just yet  ;)

    I will second the BFG AT/KO's. Awesome tires. I had some on my blazer I too kto hole in the Rock and Moab in the same year. They still had about 85% tread on them after those two trips and an additional 25,000 miles on them. The price is actually decent as well. A set of 33x12.50x15's will cost about $150 a tire. Compared to something like Toyo AT's which start about $275-300 a tire for the same size. Running Toyo At's on my truck right now (were on it when I bought it) and I can tell you right now, they flat out suck. :P

    well I'll add this too - tires......are possibly the most important part of any off-road truck, and springing for a set of good ones will not only help the truck off-road, but also 'on' the road, meaning if you drive it there having a good set of tires on the truck will surely add a nice measure of safety and reliability for the highway portion of the trip.

    In many cases, for trucks being driven (not trailered), the trip 'to' Moab is more demanding on the truck than the actual trails are  :P

    The trails themselves - well the truck should simply be 'good to go'...and a driver that ain't skeered of heights  ;)

    well this will be a good opportunity fellas {cool}.  And something to keep in mind - these events are intended to allow something for everyone, meaning some trails won't be a huge 'technical' challenge while others...will  {devil}.  That said, let me explain how the trails are rated.

    The trails at Moab are rated on a difficulty scale of EASY, MODERATE, and DIFFICULT.   The Easy trails are the Family Fun Runs - can be done with the family minivan or SUV.  The Moderate runs are for the sport utility vehicles with a good driver.  The Difficult runs are the hard-core challenges.

    Now, the Difficult trails could be further separated into 'normal', and 'hard core'.  That said, my basically stock Ramcharger with 33" tires and open diffs does the 'normal' trails with very little issue.  However, because of my open diffs, smaller tires, and lack of decent armor, I do usually take the bypasses on most of the hard-core obstacles. 

    The part about Moab that will get everyone's blood pumping...is the steep climbs and decents.  You'll be pushing against your dashboard just waiting for your truck to slide right off the rock.....and it just won't - but it does require what I call "MCR" - 'Moab Cognative Re-calibration', because until you actually do Moab, you really won't 'get it'  8).  And once you do...you'll just want to come back for more and more and more and more....and more. ;D

    Think about a good roller coaster - the initial climb up the massive mountain up to the tip over point and the huge fast downhill - well the uphill is slow and steeeeeep - that's Moab, but, the downhill part is also nice and steeeeep.....you'll just be going super slow and pointing at the ground.  It's very hard to describe, and absolutely awesome. 

    It is very common for Moab newbies to shout, loudly, "there's no f-n' way I can get up that!!"...then they witness a stock Ramcharger go right up and over...then they have to force their brain to believe that yes indeed, they really can... - that...is "MCR", and the resulting huge ear-to-ear grin across that person's face is always 'priceless'.  ;D

    So...all that said, we want everyone's mecca to Moab to be 'worth it'.  We're working on the trail line-up, and it's looking really sweet.  Stay tuned  8)

    no age restrictions - I'm assuming you want to bring younger kids?  Please do!  These gigs are always family oriented, and kids that have come in the past have always had good stories to tell afterwards. 

    A winch is always a very good accessory for these events, however I would not say you would 'need' one.  Typically more than half of the trucks in our groups have a winch so if you get in a jam someone will be close by to yank you out.  No worries.  ;)

    Hope to see you there!

    We usually end up helping other groups out with the winch more than us. Ken had to help out a bunch of rednecks that nearly died on hell's gate last September. I think Homer filmed that? Is it on YouTube? It was truly a " hold my beer" group.   ::)

    ...not sure what you are asking for/needing?  Requirements on your vehicle, like 'street-legality' type of things?  You can essentially trailer any vehicle to/from the trails, and even through town you can get away with some 'not-street-legalness', but for the trails themselves I'm not sure of any specific requirements other than safety items you'd personally want.  Maybe Ken can chime in on those if any?

    I've dinged my bumpers and rockers a little but nothing serious. Most of the hard stuff has bypasses.  But yes, sliders and some kid of off-road bumper would help. But you can get by without.

    ...I still can't believe those guys didn't get hurt somehow - they were a scary bunch {no}

    no worries at all.  You and your dad will have a great time.  We are a fairly conservative bunch of wheelers.  Sure we'll push our rigs here and there, but we always have safety in mind and we're all pretty good at being spotters.

    Seriously, I am seeing if I can make it as I will be free from family responsibilities by then.  It looks to be a great time.  Looking forward to a non humid climate.   {cool}

    .....no no - no drinkin' during the trails  {dont} - need to be very clear on that {pope}  -  besides, someone needs to be capable of preventing 'doom and destruction', as opposed to those that prefer to hold a beer (or two) instead of very rapidly pulling cable and preventing their 'friend' from toppling backwards down Hells Gate.....

    Truthfully tow ropes with metal hooks on the ends a an accident waiting to happen. They are only useful for towing a dead vehicle slowly for a short distance, not for extracting a stuck vehicle which creates much higher shock loads.

    Just teasing on that.  {cool}

     Beer is much better when consumed at rest.  (or while working on a real hot day)  Never driving.  I am disabled due to a drunk driver.  I refuse to get in any vehicle where the driver has been drinking.  I have been the DD for my friends many many times.  It was actually more fun that way.  I could watch them make fools out of themselves, and laugh at them the next day as well.  Even today I can't handle more than 3 drinks at any time. 

    I prefer being the cook.  I make a mean road stew.  Is there a night where we will be all eating and partying together?  Perhaps a pot luck on Friday night?
