Would it be possible to get a sticky together for the newbies (like me)? I'm toying with the idea of going in 2022 as it's a little late for me to work out the logistics this year. Plus if I do go I want to bring my car which means towing it. Which means finding a place to park my truck and trailer.

So maybe something about the good areas to stay depending on how far you're willing to drive to get to the event? Or even Air BnB suggestions as that's what I was thinking of doing? Along with any advice overall.

Not a bad idea, actually. Like an FAQs sticky. Bear in mind, though, that the info and recommendations will likely change year to year depending on the dates. This happened this year with the drifting/autocross plans due to not being able to find a venue for them with the calendar change to September.

Here is a monster list of official and unofficial events. They will change every year.

I stay in Surfside which is 10 mins South of Dirty Myrtle. I see a lot of cars in parking lots in this area so I’m not the only one. I like Surfside as it is quieter than actual MB area. If you want the busyness you can take a 10-15 minute ride to the MB Strip. It is about 20-30 minute ride to Broadway (a lot of meets and events happen here)

Depending on if you rent a house, you may be able to store your trailer on site. There are a few trailer storage places near by. They are not really cheap though ($40 a day at some).

Guess this means you may be driving through El Paso in 2022???

That is a possibility. Still trying to see how I can manage all this. At least I have the towing part worked out.

I figured things change year to year. But I was assuming places to stay would remain fairly similar year to year. My biggest thing really is the parking. I don't want to have to worry about my truck and trailer while off having fun.

Yep, that was exactly my issue when I first went to San Diego. Then you stepped up and helped me. Was the start of a great friendship brother!
