Buying my first Wrangler in 2021 began a two-year odyssey of desert Jeep adventure for me, which I have decided to put all together in one big movie. It's kind of a Jeeper's love letter to Moab. It's really long, but maybe at this time of year, you're missing your Jeeping and want to binge Jeep porn. If you've watched any of my previous shorter movies, you've probably seen some of this footage, or most of it. But this is the whole story for me, and I wanted to have it all together in one big, ridiculous movie. Even if nobody else watches it (or all of it), I had to make it for me. If you've got time to kill, enjoy!

Thanks for the great video.

There's "just" 10 badge of honor trails by Moab, right?
Thanks, John. It was a lot of fun to make.
There WERE only 10 Badge trails around Moab.
They added Golden Spike in 2021, bringing it to 11.

For some reason I'm seeing "only" 10. Hole in the Rock would be number 11, but it's about 150 miles away. That's still a crapload of trails.

Nice video! I didn’t have time to watch it all but hope to soon.

I made my first pilgrimage to Moab a few days ago. What an awesome place!

Too bad my jeep stayed home and I was in MY WIFE’S 4RUNNER!!! I know, I know. Sacrilege. But we were on a road trip to Park City to snowboard and visit family, so we decided to knock out the Utah Five (the five National Parks in Utah). We stayed at the Aarchway Inn right at the northwest entrance to Moab and I ran a sweet half marathon route up the Colorado river the next morning. Antica Forma had really good pizza.

Thanks, Doug. Sadly, my camera-tripod setup messed up on Top of the World; I did NOT get footage when I got myself completely high-centered on a ledge and had to use my traction boards to get loose; it defintely wasn't easy! I think Steel Bender and Metal Masher are next on my list. I want to "push it" just a little, not a ton, while my rig is new and I owe a lot of money on it and it's my daily driver. Maybe a few years from now, I will try Pritchett or attempt Escalator.

Nice. You could drive Hell's Revenge in her 4-Runner if you take the Staircase exit but bypass the actual Staircase obstacle. You would scrape on one ledge, which would be fine if you've got skids.

Aw, shucks. Oh well.
I still need to do Poison Spider and Hell's Revenge in the new Jeep. I left those badges on my totaled 2020 and need to get that collection cranked up again. Sooo many trails in that area.

Poison Spider is so, so good. Are you going to try to get a new hard badge? The ole' different email/account trick? I wish they would allow you to re-order for a fee. Like, the first badge is free, but you can buy a new one if you need to....

Yeah, I'm going to try to get a new one. Unfortunately they seem to be having "issues" sending badges recently.
