Great job Jevon. Tina will appriciate your kind words. I still have not gotten thru all the pictures yet. I am supposed to be on vacation this week, but here I am at work. LOL. Very nice right up. Oh yeah I think you were right about the pic with your tire in the air. I was thinking it was the steep little climb right by the sandy play area, but it is not. Sorry about that.

Excellent. It does a lot to make me even more impatient to get a group out to Moab some time this year.

Sorry nobody started a thread sooner but I just posted a link on the EJS thread. Since your the famous one more people will look at a thread you make than the rest of us anyway

Ok, here's a report on my part of the Easter Jeep Safari 2010 Adventure. I know it won't be as detailed or exciting as the "Famous Idaho-Jeep" but here it is. JK.. Jevon!! Really everyone, he's a great guy who was a joy to meet and talk to, and had a great family also! And the Jeep is all it's made out to be. The thing is smooth and the attention to detail is top notch! I really can appreciate the time he's taken to make it right. I wish mine was that nice.

It all started as reading about the Easter Jeep Safari thread that Cliff333 had started and looking at it often. Well after checking out some of the profiles of people posting I found out Redarcher89 and Howdy were only 5 miles away from me. Actually I have wheeled with Howdy before in the past and didn't realize it was him and that Redarcher was his son. So a few PM's later we met up and did some talking about driving out for this. But...... I had a problem at work. Two of the vacation days I needed another girl had, and she had more senority than me She has worked with me in the past about trading days but this time was different, her daughter was getting married and she had a ton of work to do and the days I needed she had family coming in from out of town. I fully understood this and was not mad at her but it was frustrating. Well at the end by luck, I had nothing to do with it, she was moved to another area and it opened up the days I needed so it was a scramble to get my stuff together.

Well I started making the travel plans with Howdy and Redarcher and at the same time checking up on his progress with his build. To make a long story short, I helped Redarcher a little to get his Jeep ready for the trip so we could all go, but it was down to the wire!!

I had my Jeep all loaded, washed and waxed for the 1350 mile trip out. Well that lasted all of about 0 seconds since it was pouring rain the day we left. Not a great start. I helped Redarcher out for the first 500 miles by pulling a trailer so to give his brand new gears a little easier chance to break-in. We had to stop and re-adjust the load to make it pull easier and then retarp within the first 15 miles, all in the heavy rain!


Gas stop somewhere in the middle of the night.


The trip went pretty fair other than getting VERY tired since we drove straight thru, till we hit Vail, CO then the fun began again!! Hit a snowstorm that changed from dry roads to 25mph within 1/4 mile! Maybe thats normal for there but I've never seen changes that fast. We made it thru ok but we were afraid that the road would get closed and we'd be stuck for awhile.


Myself and Howdy at a gas station in Vail





It snowed for quite a ways and then came Glenwood Canyon. It was beautiful thru there with the snow.



The famous rock slide that closed I-70

In Rifle, CO. we started to see the first signs of EJS


Finally got to Moab and I headed to Dax's place to set up camp while the others enjoyed their hotel room in town.

The trip out to Dax's house


After a little sleep and freezing our butts off during the night in our tent it was time to hit some trails the next day.





I won't cover all the trails since Idaho already did such a good job but I'll just add a few here and there.

Here's my son Cole on the overlook on Seven Mile Rim

The next day was Dome Plateau which was cut short but it worked out for the best in the long run. After 2 COLD nights in a tent and the threat of worse weather in the next few days we went back to town and found a hotel with a room available. So back to Dax's place to pack up everything and move into town.

Some sights from town

Next day was Fins N Things

Can anyone guess who owns this Jeep?






Not sure of the name of this spot




More along the way




Baby Lions Back after the trail was over. We had a good time playing for a little while.

Nice $80,000 rig with a 14-15 year old driving. He did a good job and the rig was sweet!

Hells Revenge turned out to be one of my favorites other than the 40-50mph winds that day. Hard to even stand up in places.



Melody, Redlyners wife, dropping into Hells Gate. Once in there your commited, so come prepared. Not really hard but it is intimidating concidering the outcome from a wrong line!

Tip Over Challenge



Next day for Moab Rim turned out as a bust due to snow. So we called it a relaxer and just hung out around the hotel and rested and did laundry.
