    Wait until you get the cool 1,000 post badge thingy. Then you will think you are doing whatever in high cotton! Fame and fortune will be yours and your wife will tweak when women start throwing themselves at your 1,000 post body...Just warning you.....

    Thanks for posting this run up with plenty of time for people to plan around it!

    No such thing Pete!

    If there was a "probably" option I would use that indtead of "maybe." I've done our Spring Moab run the last 2 years and don,t see why I can't this year too!

    this video is cool because it shows the "Moab Bump" at 1:00, from outside and inside the Jeep, a basic rock skill. its also cool because I want to do this trail too!

    We may tag along. This trip I'm interested in doing some of the mild but scenic stuff. Fins is great and all but I had the best time last time on Shaeffer Trail. not hard at all but some of the best fun I've had... ever. I know there are more trails like that in Canyonlands and Arches. Top of the World was awesome as well.

    Fins and Things is a great trail and lots of fun. Is also a good warm up for Hells Revenge which could be easily ran in the same day. Just a thought...

    It's worth saying up front that everyone that goes doesn't have to do every trail that everyone else does. There needs to be flexibility.

    Yep, Hell's Revenge is doable in just about anything. It's just longer Fins & Things.

    As far as getting ready for Moab - if you're ready to run. Anything local you're ready for Moab. I never understood people spending weeks "getting ready for Moab." Hell, if your truck can make the drive you can do the trails!

    Just don't go knowing you have an issue - yes Steve I'm thinking of you!

    I have a ticking in my engine. Need to sort that before I can commit to a trip. Plus need to check the boys spring break schedule.

    Like Chris, I'm more of a "probably" than a "maybe" too. Moab in the spring time is the best!

    Yes Chris, I don't think anything we did the last 2 years would give you any trouble. Maybe Heather's Jeep would be more fun though.

    I have the Utah Trails book and a couple of other things regarding Utah trails that I can loan you to look at. I also have a one piece suit for you to carry in Frank since it is doorless and near topless. Not that I care too much if you freeze, mainly because you are hard on my feeling, but the suit is taking up space and I have another....Stop by. For the most part, the trail books will get you in the right area (Utah, in the case of Charles Well's books) but they do have information on what you need to run them, rigwise.

    About 90% of all the rock climbing I have done done in Utah/desert/Moab/Canyonlands, etc., was approached with a 2WD. You will have to pick and choose....
