I so want to do a family trip like that. We talked about it as we traveled through Colorado and Utah this past summer....in the wife's Explorer. Did you drive the jeep, or did you trailer it behind and nice comfy motorhome?

Glad you enjoyed the pictures . My wife and I both like to shoot pictures and when someone enjoys them that makes it that much more worthwhile .

By comfy motorhome do you mean the 05 LJ family truckster ?
We drove out and back in the LJ . The ride wasnt that bad after I fixed the Under Armor buzz , just had to stop and let the kids play along the way . I remember you posting the pictures of the 'ploder on Onion Creek trail , it looked like it did well .

The Exlporer did like a mile or so of Onion Creek and a hundred yards of Black Bear Pass.....I so wanted to be in the TJ.

I'm not sure the family would like the journey as much in the TJ. Kudos to you for pulling that off. I'm sure mine would rather be in a nice comfy motorhome, with the Jeep in tow...too bad we don't own one.

The long days heading west were monotonous ,but we were all comfortable . I would love to have a toter home or RV , but its hard for me to justify it as it would sit 11 months out of the year . Of all the times I have been to Moab this is the first time I didnt trailer out . I sold my tow rig and trailer last year , and while I do regret it a little the drop in outgoing funds partially funded this trip . Load everyone up and try a closer trip to see if it is doable ? We had all the kids stuff , tools , laptop , clothes for all of us , sleeping bags and a tent . The only limit to my wifes packing was the soft tops dimensions .

Most of the pictures were taken with my wifes Canon SX40HS Powershot . It is a pretty nice point and shoot that takes great pics . I got it from B&H Camera in NYC ... they have some awesome deals.
