Great pics!! I'm plotting and scheming my 3rd trip out there. I went to EJS in 2015, then took the JL in October of 18. In October, the weather was perfect and it was not crowded at all, so everything was cheaper. We took the Rimrocker into Moab from Montrose, CO, which was a blast, too!
Nice! Our first trip out we spent time in Montrose as well and would shoot over to Ouray every day.

Mike, thank you for sharing! Great pictures! My wife and I would love to buy you and your wife lunch or dinner at your choice of restaurants in Apex to hear your first hand story. I’m in the process of getting my Jeep built and this is my bucket list trip.
Feel free to PM me and I'll give you my cell for a call :)

Great pics and story. Excited for your move. It’s a special place for sure. My wife and I decided we wanted to retire in Durango CO and it’s only 2.5 hrs or so from Moab!

keep the pics coming!

We would live over there in a heartbeat but they still get a little too humid for my wife. We need desert.

And now for the videos! They never do it justice but these were some pretty cool climbs.

The waterfall is in Toquerville UT over by Sand Hollow which is 5 hours from Moab. If for some reason you get over that way make sure to go in the AM, before lunch and DON'T go on the weekend. I can give more details in a PM if you are heading that way.
It averaged 102 in St. George and around 98 in Moab. It's freaking hot but with 5% humidity it really is not bad. For instance, I'm sitting in Jackson TN right now and it feels like a freaking swamp at 89 degrees and gobs of humidity... 102 felt better.
Keep PLENTY of water on hand and drink it. Cooling towels or a damp rag help keep you comfy, I'd take the scorching heat over the humidity any day. The whole reason we are moving is for my wife's health, the humidity cripples her.
You can't do Toquerville falls without the obligatory drove over the waterfall shot...

Looks like it was a fun trip! This pic stood out best to me - roll call!! Thank you for sharing. Also, why is the JK so angry?
Yeah that was a cool pic. We had 4 Jeeps in our group and got behind a group of 14 Jeeps which made for a pretty cool conga line.
LOL, I'm all for busting on angry grills... except that one. Super nice people and the grill has a big emotional tie. She lost her son eight years ago in an off roading accident when he was 12. He loved sharks and that grill and a couple of other things on the Jeep kind of have a shark vibe. So not a peep was said by me because in light of that... I'm down with that angry grill.

Looks like fun! We’ve been to Moab a few times—once for EJS, which was a blast (and I’m a complete introvert). Congratulations on your move. You’re right about the heat in that it’s a lot more tolerable without the humidity.

Had a trip planned this year, but COVID postponed it. Hopefully we can get out there next year.
Wait... I just saw you are in France. You were planning to fly over and rent a Jeep or are you mega rich and were going to shop your Jeep? :)

Retired from Corrections....I have stories.
We, Phil, Bill, Carla and I enjoyed wheeling with the two of you in Moab.

Just so you know, I stole a couple of your pictures. I am getting close to being caught up and will shoot you a link to photos of you guys from Moab. I still have to go through the GoPro.

Here are the ones off my Note...Fins & Things and Hell's Revenge

Is this where you told my wife that my Jeep needed a Hell Cat motor?

It was nice wheeling with you guys and I appreciate the insight to the trails and the good company you two provided.

Thanks for the great pics Ted!! It was great wheeling with you guys as well, I hope we can meet up in the future and do it again. Yes, that pic is where I was explaining how much bigger a Hell Cat engine is than a normal one... lol :)
