I will be there by end of August (like every year). We do this every year and stay for a week!

I have only wheeled my vehicross once in Moab... (2 trails) Never got stuck, but it definitely gets my heart going... It's fun, but I'm not sure I have the stomach for it :( which sucks.

You should come back and try some more basic trails, there are heaps of trails out here that are either just dirt roads or just minor challenges that have awesome scenary

I'd love to go run some trails if you're up for leading :D

The two trails I did were basic, Klondike Bluffs, and Dome Plateau (jeep safari route).

I make it to moab several times a year, should be back this may. Maybe I'll hit you up for some trail advice.

Sweet, are you on jeepforum.com?

We go to Moab at least twice a year and love it. We have done a broad range of trail difficulties from dirt roads (Onion Creek, etc.) to difficult, (Pritchet Canyon, Rusty Nail, Moab Rim, Hell's Revenge, Metal Masher, Steel Bender, Cliff Hanger, Golden Spike, Poison Spider, Gold Bar Rim, etc, etc.) All of them offer excellent beauty and sure to please fun.

Be prepared to/with:
1. Come back because that desert calls to you when you're not there. You will be hooked
2. Pleanty of water, tools, fuel, spare parts. It is not a place you want to get stranded unprepared.
3. Bring multiple vehicles with you. Don't go out alone, and be sure somebody knows what trails you're running and when so that if you don't make it back, they know where to look.
4. HAVE FUN!!
