If you live in the beautiful state of Utah you need no introduction to the UEA weekend. However, if you have never heard of the UEA weekend and plan to RV through Utah in October, pay attention: The UEA (Utah Education Association) Convention is the largest professional conference for educators in Utah. The conference provides dozens of professional development workshops for K-12 educators, as well as keynote speakers, a New Educators Workshop, the Idea Fair, and hundreds of vendor booths. The two day convention is held on a Thursday and Friday each year in mid October, combine a Thursday and Friday of no school with the weekend following and you now have a four day weekend for every school age child in the State of Utah! Families all across Utah use this big four day weekend to campout and explore the many attractions the state has to offer. That is bad news for us RVers that like to explore after Labor Day when the kids are normally back to school. If you enjoy staying in state park and/or national park campgrounds that are typically first come first serve, you better plan on arriving on a Wednesday and staying through Sunday on the UEA weekend if the park is located in or adjacent to Utah. Fair warning the 2011 UEA weekend is Thursday and Friday, October 20-21. As for my wife and I, we headed to the boondocks when we learned of the impending flood of family campers. Unknown four day weekends, just another adventure in RVing!
