Naaa no code. But i guess its for vendors or something....

Anyway... It will be cool to (probably) see you there. I am probably going to have to go alone also so we should meet up or something.


Anybody know what sort of supplies or things I should bring to help me get through that wonderful week??

depends on if you want to camp or stay at a hotel/motel/sleep in your X.

-food (mostly water)
-clothes (warm and cold)
-tools
-camera (gotta have it)
-tent, cooler, camping stove and accys., sleeping bag
-parts (just in case you break something)

what i bring to Moab:
air tank, compressor, cooler filled with tools (makes carrying it easier and it has wheels!), sleeping bag, tent, pillow, foam pad (to sleep on), recovery equipment (i.e. shovel/axe, tow strap, gloves, chains, hooks etc).

my recovery equipment is stored in the roof rack now, and will probably stay there. i have a low profile rubbermaid bin that i got at wally world for about $8. it has other stuff in it too, i really dont know what tho. with that and my cooler and the air tank, everything fits perfectly in the back. then i just toss the other stuff behind it and good to go.

What's listed above is good for outside camping.. If you've got the duckets, MOAB caters to the traveler also, so check for condo prices (thread on GONE forum "party at RimVillage"), or even a "cabin" at one of the local campgrounds. Be aware that while wheeling there, you're going to be driving UP and DOWN at angles you may have never experienced before. Make sure to secure everything in your rig, as the last thing you need is a toolbox or flashlight hitting you in the head or rolling under your brake pedal.
The weather can change multiple times in one day too, so plan accordingly; Shorts and Ts to coldgear and rainwear.

I'm not going this year (would be my 6th GONE), baby's due early May, but there're many experienced drivers who'll help you have the most fun on the trails (and stay safe). There's going to be a good mix of Gen1 and 2, along with some built Pathys and Frontiers, have a great time.

That's a shame.. Someone like you who provides so much info and resource to as many Gen2 owners as you do should feel a part of the community which you help to grow, and you do help. I always find it interesting this time of year to see who the drivers are, and who they are not.

I've signed up and will be there for the first 3 days. Can't wait. Also can't seem to find anyone else from Oregon or even the pacific NW who's going to be going.... Anybody out there?
A bunch of us PNWXers are going to Moab, but earlier in May--not for GONE. Everyone have fun! I went to GOXII in 2001 with my old X, and it was a blast meeting all the other X owners (and Mosi!).

Woo hoo.

Im going to stay at one of the motels that they have discounts at... I think it was Super 8 or something. I also plan on sleeping in the X at least once.

I am going to be there on sunday for the meet and greet... but i probably will only be able to stay through thursday morning... my fiance (sidekick) has to go back to work. :homework:

**Do you guys think that I will need to bring spare parts (stock stuff)... or do you think that since its a nissan event they will have people there with parts on hand in case anything gets busted??

Bring a new front diff, CV assembly, and your tools. You should be good to go. Ha, j/k about the diff, but you know you should always be prepared for a week of wheelin'. Hard to say what'll bust the most on Gen2 rigs.. Oh, think outside that box too, bring stuff like tarps, for shade or even protection from a hail storm..Etc.

ETA- No, Nissan willnot have parts to replace what you bust. :)
