    Do you known Rex and Penny Tanner (used to own SlickRock Campground) and Tom (forget his last name....is part of Moab's Search and Rescue) by chance? I know Rex was getting into the political scene there in the past....not sure how he's doing now....

    we loved it last time, but we did in the way out and were concerned about breaking stuff on the way, so we were more cautious than typical. this trip we are flipping the stop and hitting sand on return trip. Way Less costly if we break. Most the guys I talked to there said “why would drive 5 more hours to Moab?” The only negative for a non local is the trails are not well marked. not sure we would have had as much fun if we didn’t hitch on to a group that knew the route.

    Yep...locals are key...and that's true just about anywhere you would want to wheel. The better spots are often held close to the chest and are invite only, especially as greenies have lobbied to close down trails.

    Cool. Just curious. They used to be heavy into the offroading scene there....not sure how they're doing. Haven't seen 'em in years now.

    The Escapees RV club has a "HOP" (head out program) for off road enthusiast members, based just south of town and immediately prior to the safari. As it will slot in well to our multi month trip to and up the west coast we thought we'd join in. It was while researching that event that I discovered it was running into the safari so we decided to extend a week and will be there through the 8th.

    While I suspect the crowds, along with the beer and testosterone fueled yahoos will drive me nuts I figured it was something you should do once, especially as it's "on our way".

    We’re getting closer and wanted to bring this thread back up! We did a forum run last year and we have met some friends that we will have for a lifetime!

    Count me in... as long as it's not Pritchett. I have to drive my jeep home. Haha.

    For the EJS vets - do you sign up for many runs through Red Rock 4 Wheelers? My plan was to do a couple formal EJS rides and then go out on some of the easier trails on my own or vendor runs, and such. What do you all do?

    What we do, take it for what it’s worth is I sign up for ejs run just for the raffle and if plans fall thru will do that as a back up. Then do trails that are on the ejs off days

    Keep in mind that most spots will fill up, and pretty fast at that. If you end up at EJS and wanted to do a rr4w run you’re basically on standby in case someone backs out. Many spots even fill up before it opens up to the non paying “free” members.
