Have a great time while you are here, make sure & do The Rim Trail it's a great view from up there & go to the "Sunset grill" for dinner it's the best The Sunset Grill: Moab restaurant, fine dining with the best cliffside view. Perfect for weddings and large groups.

I used to have to drive about 40 minutes to the shops in Australia, this one particular road I counted 18 kangaroos dead, hit by cars. They were such a nusance & do a lot of damage just like deer

Day one we covered quite a bit of ground:


One of our (six) gas stops

We about ran out, gas stations on us 36 are few and far between.

200 Miles was my personal limit. I wouldn't run my rig farther than that before stopping for gas. I set the light off once, maybe twice on the whole round trip.
