We will be there Wed thru Sun. We have a few rigs with from the other group im with Dirt hedz and a friend coming from Arizona. So far we are not sure what we are doing Wed, Thurs we are planning Hells Revenge then fins and things that night Friday Spider spike goldbar and Saturday we are doing a new trail with moab friends for wheeling called Jack's Tracks possibly a few more short night runs throuout.
ITS ALL FUN AND GAMES TILL SOMEONE GETS HURT..... THEN ITS HILARIOUS!!!
Yep. Just reserved our room. We will be at the River Canyon Lodge just west of main street on 200 north. We'll be there Friday morning (early... hopefully before you guys hit the trail) until Sunday.
...and I wish I could figure out my high SWR reading...I may have a bad mic.
You probably already know this, but are you taking the reading with the rubber cap on your Firestik? I couldn't believe how much the SWR changes when you put the cap back on. Antenna is securely mounted with a good ground and coax is in good shape? I chased down an antenna issue on my HAM radio yesterday and these were some things I checked...
Moab Trails I've done: Onion Creek, Long Canyon, Dome Plateau, Top of The World (2), Fins-N-Things (2), Poison Spider,
Golden Spike, Gold Bar Rim, Hell's Revenge (2), Baby Lion Back, Cliff Hanger, Moab Rim, Kane Creek Canyon, Strike Ravine

Should be a good group. I am up for Spider/Spike/Bar on Friday, thanks for posting up your plans Travis. It is always fun to watch you make obstacles look easy.
I would like to do at least one new trail on Saturday. Flat Iron Mesa looks cool, not sure what anyone else thinks. Dome Plateau looks cool, and Lockhart Basin looks fun if anyone is up for another long trail. I am game for anything, and would like to do at least one night run.
Specs on my jeep are: 94 ZJ, 5.2L, 46rh, 231 with SYE, 8.8 rear with spool, narrowed HP Dana 44 front locked, 36" TSL SX, 3link front, double tri rear, home built bumpers, skid plate, rocker's, full interior cage, and some random body damage.
Golden spike would be great on Friday, I was thinking about doing Flat Iron Mesa as well, one of the few trails I have not done yet. Behind the Rocks is always good too.
We are staying in town at the Best Western, should be in town late Wednesday. Looking forward to wheeling with some new people.
Cool...so you are built for about anything. I don't know what a double tri rear is, I look forward to seeing your rig. Flat Iron Mesa would be cool and I am glad someone else is interested, I hesitated to go on it alone. I haven't ever run it either.
...Lockhart Basin...I e-mailed needles outpost, they close at 4:30 PM and I am not sure how long it would take to run that trail...Kane Creek road, Hurrah Pass, and 1/2 of Chicken corners just to get to the trail head. Then it is another 35 miles of off-road before you are back on pavement and can head to the outpost. Maybe I will do that one next year and camp along the way.
Flat iron is cake. Maybe 4-5 hours unless your really going slow.
Lockhart is an all day trip and if you do it I suggest not stopping at chicken corners or anywhere else. We did it and started around 8-9am and got back to town at 1 am. That's with stopping at the rock formations and chicken corners.
It was a Jeep thing, but all that stuff broke
