    Default Moab - June 21 - 26



    Figured I'd get this posted now we are about 60 days out.

    Have a Moab trip, June 21 through June 26.

    For Tuesday 22 June I booked the Mayor of Slickrock himself (Dan Mick) for a guided (follow in our vehicle) tour of Metal Masher.

    Moab beckons.

    There are a ton of difficult Moab trails you could do. We got Matt's power wagon through Poison Spider Mesa, Golden Spike and Gold Bar Rim last year. I don't have lockers, just limited slip diff in rear, and I got through it in my Jeep. I bet you could hang with us out there with your rig.

    Trails go from mild to wild out in Moab.

    Metal Masher is a difficult one, lockers are recommended but if you do some youtubin' you will see everything driving out there.

    Moab is a place where a bypass can usually be found.

    We do plan to run Fins and Things (nice and mild), probably Poison Spider Mesa.

    Open to anything really.

    Spend some time on YT. Here's a bunch of full size doing Top of the World and Hells Revenge it looks like.

    Matt killed it with his Power Wagon a couple of years ago out there.

    I believe all the major obstacles on Metal Masher have bypasses. I know the absolute big ones do, like Rock Chucker and Widow Maker.

    Yeah I agree.
    Trailsoffroad has a Q&A section for this one, I thought was great.

    "Q: Can the trail be completed without lockers by using the easier bypasses? Otherwise, which obstacles would require lockers?
    –Jasmine & Jon Hughes (03/11/2021)
    A: You will have to take all the bypasses. But mirror gulch might give you problems, also misty's thumb too. There are a few places where there are some large rocks and ledges that will make it hard.

    Now wit that said, i did it in a open / open TJ. (But note, I took that jeep many places other locked jeeps struggled) If you plan on going, best to go with a group so they can strap you if needed."

    I'm interested but it will depend on if I can get a week off work. Are folks camping, hotel, AirBnb, or ???

    I couldn't convince my girls to camp, so we got an airBnB for the week.

    Hope you can work it out! I'm getting anxious to get back there!

    I might be interested to take June 24-25 off to do some wheeling on the 25th and maybe 26th unless the 26th is your travel back day.

    You guessed it, 26 is planned as our travel back day.
    Wish you could make it for the 22nd run!

    Too early to tell for sure but I might be able to make this one. Definitely interested, just not sure yet how dates will line up but I’ll keep an eye on it.
