Well, it looks like the stars a aligned and I will be making the 2100 miles trip to CM2010.

Really cool! You may be an easy win for the "Iron Butt" Award. :)

Just checking: you have registered for the event already, right?

I'll post the trails I am on shortly to make sure they are worth 4200 miles round trip :-)

Duh, he's from NYC. As a fellow but ex-NYC native I am sorry to inform you that Pasta J's would rate lower than dirty water dog (i.e., hot dog vendor cart for you hilbillies) ;) in NYC.

Now, bring me bagels and a few black & white cookies and I will make sure you see parts of Moab the trail books leave out!

FJbrady,
I think that by the time I see you the bagel will be stale, nevertheless, I am planing to stay past CM dates heading home Friday. So I am looking for couple more off-roading days after CM.

So if anyone has any suggestions or want to wheel past Moab that will be excellent.
However, I am not looking to break anything so trails have to be appropriate.

TIA

Well, I do have an accent, but not a NYC one.
Besides I live in Albany NY :-)

It has been a couple years, since i have done Kane creek, but the take out on Kane creek may be the toughest... The pucker factor is big on Cliff hanger....

If this is his first time, they will ALL be great trails!!! and he may get a change at the Photo op on Porcupine Rim....

Looks like you'll be with me on Porcupine Rim Friday. That one is worth the view alone.

What mods have you done to your LX450? Cliff Hanger is the only reason I ask. Some good sized ledges on that one.

None of those trails should be an issue with regard to your vehicle!

EDIT: they won't be boring either...your should have lots of fun!!! Perfect choices!

Great!
I will be insterested on doing other trails after CM is over. So if anyone has suggestions on trails or showing me trails on May 3rd-May 6th it will be great.
I have the following suggestion already:

"I would head into the hinterlands.....Beef Basin, or Lockhart Canyon....are you traveling alone? If you are with at least one other truck I would do Hole in the Rock trail (not the dirt road of the same name)....it is epic!"

Hulk

Damn, that's a sweet truck!!!

You have some good trails picked, but you can run virtually any of our mainstay trails with the way you are built. Kane Creek Canyon would be especially fun.

You're going to love Moab.

Welcome, see you there. Have a safe drive, stay awake.

Having never done the trek west by car, it looks like I can cross over on either 70 or 80.
Can someone give me a pointer on choosing the quickest route not only in distance which I can get on Google, but easier to drive by myself.

On this trip, I am not looking to make the trip interesting. I just want to get to BFE as simple and quickly as possible.

2nd that Steve! I've driven from Denver to PA and back on that route and it's likely the most direct.

BTW...Upstate NY is NOT NYC....by any means....Rhyary, lookin' forward to meeting you there! :beer: You bringing any Genesee with you ? :lmao: I'll likely have some Singletrack around if you like some CO microbrew....Good luck on the "Iron Butt" trip!

Great to hear you made it home save and enjoyed yourself. Sounds like you hit a lot of trails and took full advantage of your time you had. Next year you will need to bring some more people from your club and you can be there tour guide.
