I have a 20-hr drive, and I'm going for my second time in June. I drove some of the trails we went on the day after Raptor Assault in 2020, and will likely do the same. Then I went to Moab and took a guided side by side tour with Epic 4x4, which I highly recommend. They modify their side by sides to make them more capable than stock. I went on obstacles (Poison Spider Trail) I never would have tried if I just rented one and wandered out by myself. This year I'm doing the Moab Rim. Then on to Colorado on the way back. Imogene Pass between Ouray and Telluride is easily doable in your Raptor and offers beautiful scenery. If you're like my wife (no offense) and you like beaches and palm trees, fly out and back, then take your beach vacation. As far as I'm concerned, except for the most die-hard Raptor off-road experienced guys, Raptor Assault is worth the money whether you tie it in with more, or just go for the one day event.
