Moab sucks...
 
Its full of drop offs and big rocks that make you smile. Then when you get done you have to go back to real life... Its not fair.

Some of the boys from HigherGround4x4 did a week in Moab did 9 trails and a day up in the trees just to relax.
Some pics. Some mine. Most not.

Really sucks you were forced to go there, and have a shitty time too.




Nice pics, how'd the new jeep do.

It did ok. I ran out of time and money so I used the rubi lockers with one pump and it worked good in the shop but not even 25% of the time on the trail. The tires would not hook for anything so I had to work the jeep more than I wanted to.
Over all it did ok but once I get a few small things worked out it will be better than anything I have ever had on the rocks.

You should all do a trip to Moab at some point. There is no other place like it on earth. Its hard to show just how cool it is with pics.
I had to pester a few guys from AZ about it for over a year and now that they have been they are working on the plan for Moab 2010!!!

Yup, he's been in my ace for 2 years to go to moab with him. I was all in, but had to beyotch out this year because of the not having a job situation. I was pissed after getting phone calls and pics from Moab.

Good time had by all.

BEAUTIFUL pics, wow would I love to go to Moab some day. Thanks for posting them, they were all great. Some of those pics that showed Jeeps pulling right up next to those drop-offs kinda made a part of me pucker up pretty good. :p
