Default Moab in buggies

Woody, Mark K and I took three RZRs out to Moab this last weekend getting in at 4 on Friday. That evening we ran Hells Revenge including all obstacles and then ran Fins and Things afterwords. Back on the trailer eating mexican by 6PM.
Saturday we ran Poison Spider/Spike/Goldbar, turned around, ran backwards to truck parked at Poison trail head, worked on a flat for an hour, and then ran Cliff Hanger, again, eating by 6. Today we ran Moab Rim all the way to the top and down in 1 hr, showered...again and drove home. Unbelievable trip. Basically 10 trails in a day and a half. RZRs rock. They walked every obstacle we pointed them at including escalator, double whammy, etc. We also found three different routes across the crack on Spike. Sorting pics, but one shot of Mark not paying attention on Moab Rim. Great photo op though.

I have a 6x6 Ranger that I have not yet taken out there. I've done plenty of trips in the 4runner, including all the trails that you mentioned. Looks like a great time. UTVs are so much faster on that terrain.

looks like a lot of fun, last year was the first time I experienced running multiple trails in a day and still being home before dinner. It's a wonderful thing.

Those RZR's seem like they are really capable.

Looks like fun. Gary if the UZJ45 is collecting dust please deliver it to Durango.
