It all really depends on the weather. Our plan is to shoot to Moab first and spend the week there. Depending on what we see and what we feel like we could head back to Colorado to do some wheeling on week 2.

Trying to save costs by camping so we may have to stick to Moab unless the temps are decent in Colorado. I hope to update this thread while we are out there when I have cell signal. If we feel like heading to Colorado I will catch up with you, would be nice to have a tour guide.

If we can't do Colorado this trip we plan to head out again after the snow is gone out there next spring.

Maybe I'll join you next year on the Colorado run or maybe you'll join out planned convoy with the NJ/NJ crew. Colorado is already seeing snow, so your chances of wheeling the mountain passes are slim. Camping would also be rough. With the time you have, I'd stick with Moab and canyonlands. If you have the extra time, shoot down to Zion as well.

Just finished Moab, went South to Blending and got into a nice trail called the Hole In The Rock. Absolutely beautiful and pretty technical in places.

24 miles of pure offroad fun. Sand, mud, river crossings, slick rock and some pretty dicey places with snow on the way down.

Jeep is running great and is set up perfectly for the trip. Plenty of ground clearance for everything so far, we'll see in Moab.



The trailer set up has worked out well so far too. Here we are set up in the city RV park in Hermann, Missouri.



We've pulled it offroad everywhere we've gone and its had no issues. The 3 axis hitch was really worth it as it allows much more articulation. The only issue we've had is we broke a weld on our hitch carrier on the trail. We are planning on finding a 4wd shop in Moab that can weld it back up for us.

Thanks Dave! We'll give them a call this morning before we get to Moab. Colorado has just been so beautiful, especially the drive from Silverton to Ouray that we decided to spend the night in Ouray and enjoy the Hot Springs after visiting Canon Falls Park. It was getting dark and we really want to see the drive to Telluride and then on to Moab today.

Pictures truly don't due Colorado justice, it's just amazing.

You can purchase the stickers from Jason at Krawl Offroad. He helped me get my Jeep and trailer set up for the trip so I was happy to run the Krawl Offroad name and help him with some advertising. The rig gets plenty of attention and whenever we stop there's usually somebody checking it out.

Here's a shot of downtown Ouray just before sundown.

Colorado is indeed jaw dropping, especially those areas. Unfortunately you are visiting all these places on their off season, so many things are closed until skiing season is full blown. These towns operate on an interesting schedule. They basically die for 4 months a year (oct.nov.april.may.) I remember being in Vail in May and it was a ghost town. Went again in August, and it was jam packed. Looks like you're having a hell of a time. Keep it goin!

I was in Silverton/Lake city in July and you are absolutely right, the pics don't do it justice. Your jeep/trailer combo looks great. I look forward to more pics!

Did yall do the alpine loop or any of the other passes in that area with the trailer or leave it at a camp site?

Awesome, same place I stayed at when I was in Moab. Nice place with an excellent location. Love the fact that they have their own shell station. Did you leave the trailer at the site or did you take it with you on the trails? Make sure you run long canyon, hurrah pass to chicken corners (check weather for rain), potash road to shafer switchbacks and if you want an alpine trail you can check out la sal pass if it didn't snow yet.

Trailer stays in camp for Moab and I'm glad I did. We ran 3D today and it is no joke. Highly recommend this trail as it took us all day 9-4 with just a few stops along the way. Not the best marked trail but we found our way through with only one wrong turn.

The slick rock climb followed by the hill climb is no joke and nothing that this east coast boy has ever seen or done. The Duratracs aired down to 24 psi and the driver with severe pucker factor climbed right up it with not even a slip of the tire.

Intimidation: (This is a lot steeper than it looks)

Man I wish I was wheelin along side. Next time

Glad you find the duratracs to be a capable tire. Not once have they let me down in ANY situation. Try to hit some of the scenic trails I outlined earlier. Also add picture frame arch to the list. Fun trail to navigate, the end is part sand and part rock so watch your speed. You don't want to be surprised with a boulder sticking up when you are barreling in the sand. Hurrah pass is very easy but beautiful and worth it, and it connects to chicken corners. Potash and shafer switchbacks will drop you off inside canyonlands so you can do some wheeling over there. Keep in mind that the sun sets quickly in Moab so keep one eye on the clock. If you want to see something very unique google crystal geyser Moab. It's a c02 powered geyser which is cool to see and to hunt for.

It's this steep . 3-D is one of my favorite Moab trails. I especially like the hill at the beginning of the trail, "Mean Hill" (a dirt hogback hill), the sand hill climb about in the middle of the trail, and as you pictured, the slickrock area that includes "The Wall".

Not sure what PSI you you normally run...but I run 26-30psi on the road w/ 35's. Airing down to really be effective needs to go to 12-18# range. If your rims are 8" you should have no problem with 10-12 range. I'd go to 10# with NO problems now with Beadlocks 5-8#...
You're less likely to slice a sidewall (esp w/ Duratracs), be a lot less "bouncey" going over obstacles ( more stability) and have more traction with a more comfortable ride. Coming from a rock crawler here in CO...

We are off today to Picture Frame Arch and one other trail that is nearby it.

3D is an amazing trail and I still smile thinking about running it. Just a question on the wall. When you were there was it just one slick rock climb and then straight up a hill climb to the top. The dirt hill after the first climb was fenced so you had to go left and then climb another slick rock and then a steep loose hill climb.

Here's a vid of the climb. Don't mind me almost face planting trying to climb the hill

http://youtu.be/stfzjg3s3Vs

Thanks for the info on tire pressure Sinister! We did not get to run Engineer or any other Colorado trails other than Medano due to snow. We talked to some locals and they said trails were closed since they had 2 ft of snow. Said come back in the summer.

Another beautiful Moab morning:

I was there for Easter Jeep Safari in April and there was a fence there, apparently too many people have been bypassing the main trail and causing damage to the fragile environment so the fence was put up so the land can rejuvenate itself.

Looks like you are having no trouble climbing, tons of grip it seems. Do t worry about videotaping your self tripping. I accidentally videotaped myself taking a piss running top of the world hehe (forgot the gopro was running.)

After the drive to Picture Frame Arch we took a short round about on a small section of Beyond the Rocks. The map showed one difficult part but after yesterday we were feeling confident. That was until I reached this: And here's the first attempt up that failed and gave me a nice dent in my gas tank skid for the attempt. I'm happy to say on the second attempt it was conquered.

Tomorrow is Hurrah Pass and Chicken Corners. I'm already planning on how to get back out here as soon as possible. This is just an amazing time.

Wow that's quite a short cut . If we roll together, we can go into the maze district of canyonlands. The only reason I didn't go there yet is that it's not a place I want to wheel alone.

Wife and I went to the Doll House in the Maze District summer before last. Did fine with an almost stock JK pulling an old boat trailer that I modified for off road. Just need a little planning, smart packing and a simple permit process. ( lots of food, water, extra gas and a portable toilet ). An awesome experience in one of the most remote areas in lower 48. Spent three nights at doll house #3 and only saw one other person in four days. A very thirsty cyclist coming out of Tea Pot Canyon as we were getting ready to enter. Probably a good idea not to go alone. Only damage was a few battle scars on some skids and a cracked weld on the trailer. I used a strap to secure it and got it fixed in Moab.
I have a post in Trail Pics below. From the looks of your rig and a little patients you would do fine in the Maze.
