KOH 2020

It may be a little early to post this up, but I can't find the answer anywhere else yet. I need to request my vacation time asap. Just wanting to make sure, is KOH week always the first Friday to the second Friday of February? That would make 2020's week Feb. 7-14.

Or will it be January 31 to Feb. 7? N00b question I know. IR confused.

It typically start's the weekend of the Superbowl. So Sunday the 7th to Friday the 7th would be my guess.

Just checked today and they have announced the dates. Hammertown is open Friday Jan, 31 until Sunday Feb. 9, with the big race on Friday, Feb 7.
Putting in my vacation time request right now.

Hi,

I'm looking at going to KOH as a spectator next year. I'll be traveling from the UK for it and will be in a rental RV or car. Is it possible to drive from hammer town to near the key hills/obstacles without a 4 wheel rig? Don't mind walking up, but the two miles across the desert from Hammertown might be too much to sell to the wife!

Thanks

If you are asking whether a car will be sufficient enough to get from spot to spot then the answer is no. If you have a 2wd truck like a Tacoma or 1500 then yes. But barely. You'll have to park at the bottom of the hill going to backdoor and the bottom of Chocolate Thunder and walk up. Which will get annoying. The first year I went I had no idea what I was doing and showed up in a Hyundai Elantra and ended up hitch hiking to the spectator spots. Got to ride in some pretty cool rigs but since then I've always taken my crawler. A side-by-side is probably the best vehicle to have out there.

I went to KOH one year, without my crawler, and it wasn't that much fun. Eddie315 is right, a 4 wheel drive vehicle will give you and your wife a much better experience.

We flew to Vegas and rented a 4wd truck to drive to KOH last year. Guy at the rental car place bought out 3 trucks and we turned them down. None of them were 4wd. He was so confused. We ended up walking around and finding a 4wd truck and told him this was what we wanted

2wd truck out there would be rough to get around in. 4wd truck or 4wd SUV and you're good.

Bullshit

I drove a rental Nissan Versa out to King of the Hammers in 2016, and made it to all the spectator spots. Hell, I was even passing people in actual rigs in the whoops, and people applauded I made it so high up the spectator parking hill at Chocolate Thunder

Hell, honestly, it was a better time thrashing the rental around with buddies than watching the actual race

We didn't do too bad cruising around in my buddy's 2wd Avalanche. It was a little tough getting over to Sledgehammer since he wasn't willing to give it the same treatment as the Versa.
