Thats true. I grew up here so Indian ruins aren't too exciting to me. Did you go all the way back to Hotel Rock? pretty interesting. More moab motivation!

It is going to be a good time , heck any time spent on the slick rock is good .

Would really like to go back around early June next year if I can swing it financially again, was a heck of a trip!
Start saving now !

I always camp on Kane Creek Rd in free primitive sites a few miles past the pritchett trailhead and get a hotel the night before I leave so I can clean up before the drive back.
It's beautiful camping in that canyon...
We will camp a few nights,but anymore than that and my family will revolt .

Yes we are driving out , it takes three days but it isnt too bad .

I am not sure how far back we made it , we had to stop when I couldnt go any farther . My LJ couldnt clear what I think is the last bad ledge before you get to the top . We had a good time , it was a fun trail .

Yeah? That was one thing we were figuring out, If so it might be more cost effective for me to throw mine on your trailer. What do you haul with? It just depends on how many of us actually go as to what trailers we need. Ill have to bookmark you!

My dad has a f650 and a 50 ft trailer, which can fit 4 Jeeps. 3 spots are already filled.

Man it would be cool to possibly ride with all these guys Jake. Sure would be fun. We'll talk about it when i head up there sometime over christmas break!


Mike when do you think you'll know if you can swing it? you should hop on the f650 caravan with us, would be more cost effective

You talking to me? Not sure when I can give a definite yes or no. I might be a little out of your way to hop on the cool bus with you guys but PM an approximate cost to do so if you don't mind.

In 2003, seven families from my 4x4 club caravaned out to Moab from TN. It took a year to plan, so you have a good start. It took 35 hours to get there if I recall... and that was driving straight through in shifts.

We were so excited when we got there that we unloaded, aired down and hit fins and things half asleep.

Overall the trip was a blast!! We stayed there a week and hit all the famous trails. We were there when you could run Lower and Upper Helldorado and did both. They were still pretty new trails then. Winched out the waterfall on Upper at 3:00AM (ahhh memories)

If you don't mind a TJ from TN... I may try to work this trip out. It's been too long!
