    Okay, I'm pretty sure I do, at least, recognize your truck, but I'm horrible with names and faces.

    So what if you wanna go but it'd be the 1st time to 4x4 Moab and are still sorta unsure of yourself or truck while "in the real shiat", aka pucker factor 12.. I mean, I've hit a bunch of easy/moderate stuff here in CO but I'd hate to take off a week, pay for lodging and find out I'm totally outta my element...

    Gotta learn somewhere but I'd hate to catch a Greyhound home.

    I think you'll be just fine. Sign up for green and maybe blue trails. I don't know your driving style, but the only thing I've broken is a sway bar end link ( back when I had sway bars). The only trails I haven't done are the black rated trails. The trail leaders want to get you through without breaking anything and are going to do everything they can to accomplish that. Many of the more difficult obstacles have bypasses.

    I have to worry about driving my rig home too (over 1300 miles). Sometimes things happen which are out of our control. A part may be at the end of its life and you don't know it. I've never known anyone to be left with a broken rig and no help. This is an awesome group.

    No matter what you sign up for, you will have a good time. The scenery is amazing and I've enjoyed every trail I've been on.

    Having done 5+ gone moab events. My first year I was in your position. Everyone is willing to spot you, everyone is willing to climb under a rig, and you will always get off the trail. Being a newbie is awesome in moab, everything looks crazy and unwheelable, but its a game of follow the leader. Once you do it you get more and more excited to wheel the crazy stuff.

    Sign up, go with an open mind, always ask if you are unsure.

    Nice, thanks for the encouragement. I've done some rappelling and hiking in Zion/Arches so I know how sweet the area is and dangerous too..

    I've only had the X around 15 month's and replacing the motor and 3 cat's [ Maryland has emission testing ] kinda pushed some upgrades to the back burner but i'm hoping maybe next year even if just for the kiddie trail's. Ok I'm an OLD kid.

    It's 1650 Miles 1-way for us! Some East coasters have a far longer drive than that.

    I'll try to keep an open mind as it gets closer, maybe the 1800 miles won't looks so bad in a month lol.

    I won't make it this year, but I think I'm going to plan on attending next year. Rig should be pretty well set up by that point. :D

    Moab is about 400 miles closer to me than Pine Grove was for ECXC. I don't know if I'll be going or not but I would like to.

    We have 5 plus our dog coming from Indiana. Looking into camping options currently. My wife and I stayed at Kane Creek Campground two years ago for Easter Jeep but it was just ok aside from waking up to cool canyon wall views every morning. I know a bunch of people do the free BLM sites but I think the fam at least needs access to showers and running water for the week.

    Just made our camping reservation at Pack Creek Campground. Not as much room or as nice scenery as Kane Creek Campground but facilities are much more family friendly, price is cheaper, and it's actually in town.

    By the way, if anyone is interested I will be bringing along some items for sale. I have two sets of first gen auto hubs with hardware. I will also have good condition first gen AC revolver shackles, torsion bars, and possibly their 3 leaf add a leaf set. Lastly, I may bring a good condition 2004 auto trans TX10 transfer case with around 177k miles. If anyone is interested in anything let me know.
