Well, it's time, maybe overdue, for a change. 2023 will take us to Sand Hollow State Park in Hurricane, UT (pronounced "Her-ah-kun") in the SW corner of UT next to St. George. Lots of great trails, a reservoir for water sports and affordable lodging for the week.

Dates: Sunday, April 9, 2023 to Saturday, April 15, 2023
Typically the last day of wheeling is Friday, with the last people departing on Saturday.
Park trails and overview: https://caltopo.com/m/63T1, https://stateparks.utah.gov/parks/sand-hollow/, https://www.winter4x4jamboree.com/Trails-Home.cfm

I've already booked an AirBnB in this area: https://www.google.com/maps/@37.1354142,-113.3722021,15.29z?hl=en

Some trails that I think would be good for us. Note that I haven't been there yet so this is really subject to change.

Fawlty Towers

GMRS will be again the radio standard. We will start on Channel 17 and see how that works for us

Attendee List

Best guess and confirmed is below. I will start cleaning up as we get confirmations.

I have so many great things to say about Sand Hollow. I have been twice and it’s been a positive experience. It’s a growing OHV area and I’m sure 5-6 more trails will be added between now and next year.

I feel Sand Hollow locals are very welcoming to wheelers and they appreciate the business we bring to their town.

Count me in. Chris I am somewhat pissed that you guys did Pritchett without me. Well ok, I am already over it. I know we tried several years and for various reasons were unable to run the trail. ( I know one year the creek was running about 10' deep in the canyon. )

Sounds fun but with a 27 hour drive probably not going to happen unless I can find a way to spend a week in Las Vegas the week before and after.

Understandable! We might shoot for Colorado in summer '24

Sounds good. Count me in. Would it be effected by EJS dates?
We're going to go the same week we normally do, i.e. starting on Easter Sunday. If anything, it may be quieter in Sand Hollow as all of those Jeepers aren't likely to be wheeling two weeks in a row.

We still need to get an IFS (lift/non lift) H3 through Pritchett. We are not done with this trail yet, it was nice to see it.

Put us down. Hopefully work won't get in the way next year. With covid taking away half of my work I could not pass up that job this year. Plus it will definitely fund a couple trips.

We were going to do Moab and possibly stay long and go to Sand Hallow, this year. We are still going to try heading that way this year.

If I know ahead of time to bring my in-laws truck and my neighbors car hauler with me I'll let you drag mine through. I just want to avoid body damage, but a snapped axle or two is no big deal.

Pencil me in for now. I got no problems making Hurricane, UT since I'll be based out of Socal at that point, I may not be there for the whole week :)

My ZR2 will be on 37's soon and I would try getting it through Pritchet. I may have to pull line, if needed. Just saw a video of a Toca TRD on 35's going through Pritchett.

Nice! Fair warning, it's like a 1.5 hour drive home afterwards lol everybody always leaves out the long a** drive on mild trails home lol
