EASTER JEEP SAFARI: April 16th - 24th, 2011

I live in FL and Im looking to make a road trip to Moab Utah for the Jeep Safari next year. Im trying to find out if anyone has been apart of this trip with the Red Rock 4-Wheelers INC? From what my research shows this looks like great fun and a great group to go with! Any info or tips would be great. Thanks Guys!!

I'm doing it next year first time... a buddy of mine does it every year... he told me to go to Red Rock 4-Wheelers, Inc.- RR4W- Moab, Utah
and register you will receive a newspaper with all the details.... The best info he told me was " you better tow your rig up there incase you break something" and since its going to be your first time up there dont do anything higher then class 5 trails... that site has great info along with youtube.com videos

If you dont learn something new everyday, your dead---

if you dont do anything else, be sure to do the two
day white rim trail. you get a good taste of all
things moab on that trail. awesome switch backs,
some decent crawling in spots and some ridiculously
beautiful scenery. we got our camping permit at
the island in the sky. on the way there we got sun,
rain, snow, then more sun LOL cant wait to get
back there !

Hells Revenge is a MUST do for the first time Moaber. Beautiful scenery (of course all trails in Moab are awesome) and all difficult obstacles have bypasses if you're not comfortable. It will give you good feel for what it's like to drive on slick rock. Despite the term, your tires will stick to slick rock like glue. It's amazing. With Moab only being about 5 hours away, I've been every year for the last 3 years. But never during EJS. I prefer less crowded times.

i thought about not going during EJS but living so far away and not knowing anyone out there I have to go then cause #1 rule of wheeling is dont go by your self.... so Im stuck and I will be cool to see the whole event go down...

It's definetly smart not to go alone. I'll probably go one of these days just to see the vendors and stuff.

So how's Florida these days? I was born in Ft. Lauderdale and grew up in Boca. Moved to AZ 10 years ago and haven't been back since.

The wife mentioned tonight that we should go to EJS this year. We'll be driving the TJ from St. Louis... just me the wife and the 2 year-old. So the plan is to just do mild trails.

I do have a couple of questions:
I can't put that many miles on beadlocked Swampers... So would it be feasable to run Yokahama Geolander ATS's (my street tires) on the mild trails? Or would it be worth toting a trailer for the TSLs?

We stayed at the Super8 a few years ago, just passin' through on a family vacation... I checked the prices for that weekend... $255 a night! WOW! Is there a better option for lodging/camping??? We would only be wheelin' a couple days, and exploring the National Parks the rest of the time. But showers would be nice. What other options are there? Is everything that expensive?

you can run the geolanders on the mild trails. red rock has super grip, so you can air em down a bit and they should do fine. not sure on the pricing, we camped on the white rim trail and at the local camp ground in a primative spot, so it wasnt too bad.

The newspaper sent out by the Red Rock 4-Wheelers is fantastic btw. It's full of info about each trail, when it is run, ads for local shops, vendors, etc. It will really amp you up about attending.

AMERICA IS FULL
