I wont be out for EJS this year as it doesn't coincide with Spring break for my kids I don't think. I would love to do Behind the rocks and Golden Spike if I did. Money is getting tougher these days - architectural business has dried up a lot. May have to move which we are not happy about but gotta do what you gotta do right?

Sorry to hear about your parents Dax!
Yeah very true! Sorry to hear that though Jevon Are you still planning on coming out before or after EJS like you did 2 years ago or not at all? It would be odd having a spring and not wheelin with you at least once. It does seem like money is tight for everyone theses days. Also I am sorry to hear that you might have to move... also good luck if you do! We seem to be moving a lot lately lol

Dax I am sorry to hear about your parents also. Nevermind on the camping. The way things are looking I may not make it out there this year. I hope so, but not sure. Good luck with the Jeep and keep us posted.
Thanks Steve. You might not make it either... wow sounds like its going to be a quiet spring. How come? Money issues as well? I hope everyone is OK. By the way I was just reading through your build thread and WOW your jeep has changed a lot!!! What a beast! I cant believe that articulation! Looking awesome buddy! If you keep going at that rate you will be doing Helldorado the next time you come out here!

If ya drive with some sense then there's tons of stuff ya can do out there with a stock Jeep. Traction is amazing so there's not really a need for heavy throttle. That alone will keep from breaking alot of parts.

And choose your battles! Know when to say "I'm not comfortable with this, I'll take a bypass". Small things like that will go a long way.

We drove 1350 miles one way to get there and ran for 9 days and drove home. No trailers. I talked to 2 guys on our first day there in a stock JK that had drove out from Maine or Massachusetts just for EJS! I thought we had a long trip Take the time to go once and you'll wanna go back again!

Thanks for asking Dax. Everyone is ok, just an ongoing battle with my ex wife. The next court date is going to be sometime in Apr. So I don't know yet if we will make it for EJS. Money is always tight.
Everyone should make a trip to Moab at least once.
Heldorado? I thought Pritchard canyon was the hardest trail out their?

The wheeling among other things like hiking, mtn biking, skiing, rafting, etc...yeah I am an outdoors kind of person lol Yes there are a ton of trails out here a stock jeep can do! A lot of people think you need a really modded jeep to come run here but that is so not true. I used to have the list but I cant find it at the moment but my Dad did like almost 30 trails out here in his stock Cherokee. Some were a little much but in general there is ton of stuff you can run here no matter what you have for mods.

Ahhh... I hear ya! My parents are going through a pretty nasty court battle at the moment as well. I told them to try to settle it out of court but they couldnt manage it. The only people that ever make out big are the lawyers and its always a big long drawn out stressful process that costs a ton of money. I feel your pain there Steve... I wish you all the luck I can and hope everything turns out well in the end. Pritchett is basically the hardest trail in Moab. I don't count the Area BFE trails since most are rock crawler territory. But if you want to count them Heldorado is one of the harder ones at BFE. Here are some pics...

There's actually alot on this site if ya search a little. There's some in General Discussion, some in Wrangler Technical and a few others. People ask what trails for their build-up, what's the best to run, ect...

Pull up one of the forums and then in the upper right of the screen there's a "search" icon. Just go from there.

I was going to suggest the same thing John did... if you do some searching you can find a ton of stuff on Moab right here on Jeep Forum. This is where I always ask or search for all my jeep related questions. I am a member on other jeep forums as well but this one is the biggest and most comprehensive.

Look at my first post in my other Moab thread - there are a few good websites to do a little more reading on trails, trips etc..

Just got done with the whole thread. Motivating to say the least, and only steels my resolve to get out there some day. Maybe this coming spring/summer.

You did a hell of a job documenting the whole trip, Idaho-Jeep. Amazing photos and great commentary. Really a pleasure of a thread to read.
