I've scheduled to go wheeling to these places. If anyone wishes to tag along let me know. There are two legs to this trip, you don't have to do both if your time is limited.

Leg 1:
Montrose Colorado: Will be arriving 10th of April & wheel to approx the 14th or 15th. This is a very small group, you must be properly equipped with spare parts. The trails that we will be doing are all pretty much extreme and body damage percentage is higher than 50%. The extend of the body damage could be from a small nothing scratch to a dent to a rip or gash, this depends on you. If you are interested in doing this part of the leg I must speak with you personally. Do a web search on this area or look up a trail called Die Trying so you can see pictures of where you will be headed. :amazed:

Leg2:
Moab: Will be arriving around the 16th and wheel from the 17 through Thursday the 22nd. Will head back home Friday 23rd. You don't have to wheel every day if you don't want to.

There will be quite a few real nice Jeepers in Moab doing all types of trails from easy to moderate to extreme (all of it is very scenic and mind blowing). You pick what you wish to do. Most of the extremes can be done with no problem in Moab due to their excellent traction. I would suggest that nevertheless you have front & rear locker with a winch. We try to avoid body damage on the extreme trails and most of the time it is possible. You can do the moderate ones with no problems. Don't worry about knowing your way. :drive:

Keep in mind that these are not events, just a bunch of guys/girls getting together each morning around 8:30am. We then decide what trails and who wants to go where. If you do not tow your vehicle you will be fine, just be level headed about taking some of the obstacles so you can get home. Most of them have bypasses and go arounds. You can see pictures of Moab on my Web site. All I can say... is a heck of a lot of fun. :amazed:

If you plan to go don't leave everything till last minute because you will need reservations even if you are camping. Moab has many hotels, RV sites, camping and restaurants. :) :shock: :gossip:

what about the third leg?
Suppose "The Little Boy" makes it to Moab and Montrose and is still in one piece when he's done....
Will he then continue on to the 3rd leg... try to tackle the A-B creek bed? or Maybe Creek Bed #5 (remember what it did to Howard L's control arm?)?

1BigDog,

It is not appreciated on how you dangle the outstanding Tennessee A-B creek bed trail in front of my eyes as bait for a third leg. :shock:

As I hope to be in one piece coming back from out West, I would take your offer without thinking twice if it were not for my daughter having to be in school that Monday. I managed to get approval in writing to pull her out of school for two weeks. :amazed:

The only way I can see this happening is to leave early, stop there for a day and head home which will make me loose at least another day or two. It was not a problem before... it's a shame children have to go to school. :)

I plan to make an early summer trip to TN in where you and I can tackle these trails and maybe head out to Alabama. Now if you got better ideas I'm all ears. :gossip:

Only a few weeks away. Anyone for Moab you slackers! :1thumb: :2thumup:

You can even fly out there and rent a Jeep to do the trails if time is a factor. :gossip:

Well getting slowly ready to leave beginning of next week, I expect everyone to stay out of line around here and give these outstanding Moderators a hard time... I try but they will not let me. :cool:

Here is a well done video of some wheeling in Moab.

Way to Moab

It is a group with their XJ's. I wonder why none of them appeared to have "aired-down" at all.
