Awesome pics and a great write up. I wish I could have been there. Oh wait...I was!

It was great meeting and wheeling with you guys. Robbie (my gf) had never done anything like that and she was telling me before the trip how nervous she was. Of course she had some oh %#$^%$ moments but she had a blast and can't wait to go again.

I still can't believe that lady with the flat left her friend and the dog back on the trail. What if she fell and hurt herself? I didn't see her carrying any water and the driver wasn't about to go drive back up the trail if her friend didn't show up. She was so adamant about calling AAA and having them come out to change her tire. Even if there was cell service it would have taken them at least 2 hours to get out there. I also can't believe that she drove right by us without flagging us down for help. Just glad we didn't have to pick up her friend half dead on the side of the trail. It's amazing how people are oblivious to the fact that they are out in the middle of the freakin desert!

It was amazing to see all the water out on Hell's Revenge. It was a much different experience than when I was there last July.

Let me know when if you ever get back out this way. I'll be trail leader on Moab Rim.

Over the mountains and through the woods, across the stream and up the slickrock, down the canyon and over the rocks to nobody's house I go.

Oh, I'll be back, and when I go I'll let you know. I'd love to do Moab Rim, Elephant Hill, and anything else my jeep can handle, but I'd also love to be able to trailer the jeep out there, so I don't have to worry about making it home.

Great pictures guys, I did my first Moab trip blind two years ago. I loaded the Jeep on a trailer and just went. The first day I just poked around town and hit the first part of Fins where I met two other Jeeps and tagged along with them the rest of the trip, great guys.

If you want to try Moab just go! There are plenty of people out there who are doing the same thing. I live in the Quad Cities on the border of Iowa and Illinois, any of you Midwestern people who want to plan a Moab trip, I would likely be interested in going.

Love you guys who drive their Jeeps to your destinations, wheel them hard and then drive them home. That is the only way we have done it. The trip in the jeep is part of the fun!

Well I would be interested in taking my Rubicon out to MOAB. Hard part is finding people that actually will commit and make it happen. If there is a group going from the Midwest/Chicago land area, please let me know. I'm not much of a mudding kind of guy, but I love the trails you guys were on. I'm a total noob though!

I have no idea when I'll be able to go again, but I do know it won't be soon enough.
