Default Moab Trail learning weekend

Wow what a trip!

Friday: Metal Masher and Cliffhanger
Saturday: Steel Bender and Wipe Out Hill
Sunday: Recovery and Winching training. Then a very nasty trail called I-70

Very big thanks to Cheeseman and Robbie

Took pictures:

Default Moab trail learning weekend

Man, that was some serious wheeling. Think about it, yesterday, we ran more trails than most people run during all of cruise moab!

Thank you to Robbie and Cheeseman for putting this together. I tried to be in learning mode and not drive the truck mode. I had no idea that the "eaiser" trails can be that much fun!

Other than a drive home today, it appears to have been a blue bird of a trip weatherwise with some involved training to go along with the fun. Great pics with more to come, I hope.

Glad to hear it was great! I was thinking about you guys all weekend. When 3PM Friday hit and I was still hard at work and exhausted, my better judgment said "don't get in your truck and drive 5 hours."

I may try to head out next weekend for a fix. My bags are still sitting in the garage all ready to go.

glad to see you guys are making it back ok. We hit the storm on our way back to Salt Lake last night. Highway 6 was closed with us in it. they made us wait to be escorted out behind snow plows.

We had a nice day on Steel Bender. It was only my brother in law's second time out in his j**p, and my first time getting my 4 runner out. We had a good time and made it through without too much carnage. Some dents and scrapes to rear bumpers and one flat tire/ valve stem.

Nice to meet up with you and hope to see you all on the trails again soon.

Troy


couple pics from steel bender yesterday.
