    Default Easter Jeep Safari 2019

    So Dad (4.3xj) and I are planning a trip to moab for Easter Jeep Safari in 2019. My daughter will be all grown up and out of school, wich means no worries about school scheadule anymoore. 2 years gives us pleanty of time to build, break, fix, upgrade and fine tune our jeeps. He will take his xj and I will be taking my tj and mighty mite.

    I didn't know if anybody else from the forum wanted to go as well. If so you have 2 years to plan as well. There are trails from as simple as dirt roads with spectacular views of the dessert to gonna break the most awesome buggy. It would be great to meet some other members and have some fun wheeling.

    Were going 2018 so I'm sure after my first time I'll find a way every year to get there.

    You will be welcome Jon. We would like to get some magazine coverage, dreaming I know. But we will have three generations of wheelers there and the Mighty Mite is an attention getter.

    That's awesome... Hopefully I'll be settled in a good paying career and can swap the Ram 1500 for a CTD Ram.. to be able to tow that far of a distance... Not to mention my little one will be 3 by then... so hopefully she'll be good for a trip like that (with obvious stops here and there, as required...)... not to mention her enjoying Jeep fun!!

    Forest Service maintains Privies on the trail now. Almost civilized.

    I was going to suggest I pass a message to Bob (Bad Luck here on the forum, but he is not on much) that you guys are planning a trip, he lives in Moab.

    The wife and I were trying to get our heads around trying to plan for another trip also, this might be a great goal.

    I'll reach out to Bob to give him a head's up. You are going to have your hands full doing all the famous trails with the EJS, but Bob knows some cool hidden spots to go if you have time.

    I'll see if we can get either the XJ or WJ ready, but we would be driving out. Who knows, maybe some awesome luck will happen.

    I am all for hidden spots etc. I think we will probably be going down to Arches National Park on at least two of those days

    Believe it or not, you can "scout" with Google Earth many of the "Big Name" trails out there, like Hell's Revenge and Fins and Things.

    I did just that, and I drove Hell's Revenge in a rented Farabee 4-door JK solo because of it....wife and kids were worn out from the drive from Flagstaff, and the runs we did as soon as we hit Moab. So while they napped in the motel, "out of his element" southern boy here went and ran Hell's Revenge.....and never saw another person on that trail until I got back on Sand Flats road.
    I would have been more comfortable with a spotter in places, but I figured the only way back to the motel was to keep going.

    Yeah, that is pretty much where I am at.. if I ever manage to get to Moab, unless I have a CTD Ram and a trailer to make the trip cross country... I'll be doing the rent-a-Jeep Moab run.. I really would rather run my XJ on there (mainly to be able to know that my XJ is truly trail rated & tested)... and even more so, I am not a big fan of JK's.. lol...

    If you are going to be trail rated James, tradition has it that it is the Rubicon that sets the bar for that As far as trails go, get on the Red Rock 4X4 list. They will send you a book with all the trails listed as well as a map and trail ratings. They have sent me one for the last 2 years
