We had an amazing time meeting new folks and running Moab trails for the first time. We will definitely be joining again next year! I have hundreds of photos to sort through, but here's a couple good ones:

Rckhound and I were lucky enough to finish our trucks before Cruise Moab, and even luckier to have our oldest brother out from Iowa. I picked up my 60 a little over a month ago with no brakes, no power steering, lots of issues and bone stock. Lots of late nights later, Its very trail capable and only suffered a broken engine mount. Made all the hard features in Flat Iron Mesa with ease and made it down easter egg hill. Rckhounds sleeper 40 also did great and had no issues. He finished the truck just days before the trip and we tested them by driving to Cruise Moab with no support vehicles or trailer. Now its time to strip the 40 and finish the body work!

Lots of pictures to sort through. Another plug for HAM radio and it's bennifits on the trail. I was able to talk to treeroot about the Onion Creek rollover from an amazing distance. The following night I was leading a group up Top of the World and a Canadian 70 broke a u-joint. I was able to talk to Ige from the top as she drove on I70 outside of Fruita. Within minutes, she relayed back with answers about 80 series u-joints on a 70. 5 minutes after pulling the rear ds, we lost the front. Once again, Ige relayed back to Moab from I-70. We ended up strapping the vehicle back from the lookout.

Great work by Jonathan and Ace in getting the 70 back to camp while I led our group down in the moonless night. What a blast this past week has been. My wife got some quality time behind the wheel on Fins and Poison Spider.

Here's a video of us coming down Wipeout Hill. It of course doesn't look nearly as steep as it actually was!

I Try

It helps to use a nice camera. Last June I splurged and got a Nikon D5200.

BTW, when you click on the thumbnails, it makes them kinda forum-sized, but if you click again you get the full 24Mp, 8000 x 6000 in case you want to make a poster or something.
