I'm going to Moab for the first time at the end of May. My old friends from Iowa are making their 3rd annual trip and I'm going to meet them for 3 days of wheeling. The three days I'm there we'll be doing:
  • Fins & Things
  • Hell's Revenge
  • Cliff Hanger
  • Poison Spider
  • Golden Spike
  • Gold Bar Rim

The Iowa folks will be there for a week; myself, only 3. We've got 3 condos rented so far. If anyone is interested, PM me and I can see if there is still room available.

There are so many great off Road Trails near Ouray Colorado, I also like Poughkeepsie, 4 miles and 12,500 feet elevation it's a great trip…

Yeah I missed poughkeepsie. My jks quick disconnect was unknowingly rubbing my brake line all the way through black bear. The we went up (the name escapes me) and when we were coming down I lost all braking power. I was very glad it didn't happen on black bear lol

I missed Mineral, or was that the one in same area of Poughkeepsie? I really liked all of them, definitely doing Black Bear again, maybe staying in T-Ride for a night afterwards. It will also help to know that the steep ledge is not nearly as bad as it looks when you approach it.
