    I know it would definitely be a good time! I still really want to run 7 mile, Steel bender and Kane Creek and I really want to get my trail Explorer back out to Moab. Last year's Expo sparked some opportunities and good networking for the magazine stuff I do so its hard to say no to it. Maybe I can come out for the first few days of Moab then come back early to go to Expo.:dunno::burnout:

    That could work, if you decide to go to MOAB let me know.

    So where do people usually stay? Do you camp out there? What about food? Dont know much about MOAB :banghead:

    Just a little over 3 weeks to go.

    The NW crew is starting to talk about trails. We will be arriving Sunday afternoon so will start trails on Monday.

    We also want to go to the Arches National Park this time since we won't have the dogs with us. That could be Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.

    We are thinking of starting off with Elephant Hill on Monday.

    Tuesday could be Metal Masher

    Wednesday - Arches Nat Park

    Thursday,,,, Behind the Rocks?

    Friday,,,,,,, Moab Rim?

    Saturday,,,,, Prittchet Canyon?? (or Sunday depending on how many want to run that one)

    Sunday,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Monday we will head home.

    Are other any other trails y'all would like to run?

    I am planning to make it Mon-Wed this year. What I would like to do is something like:
    Mon- 7 mile rim or maybe down rose Garden Hill or Flat Iron Mesa
    Tue- Kane Creek
    Wed- Steelbender then I am hoping to load up and leave Wed early afternoon

    Elephant Hill requires a permit now if you were unaware. Only so many per day and available 24hrs in advance I believe

    At Arches, there is back country roads where 4x4 is needed (deep sand), and high clearance (rutted hill drop/climbs).

    Towers Arch is at one end of this 4x4 road.. Marching Men, Klondike Bluffs is also in the area. It's really interesting time, and NO crowds. We ran into only two vehicles when we did it, and they was tourist guides..

    Oh, and the other spot to do is Dead Horse State park, drive back on Long Canyon Road. Great road, not hard at all, has a few pucker spots. You come out on UT 279, near Jug Handle Arch..

    Believe me, I thought about it.. Was there last September. Had to stay on the bunny trails due to being by ourselves, but still have a blast.

    Going down the canyon single lane switchback cliff roads is crazy..

    I love those type of trails, just to watch the expression on my wife's face when she is cliffside

    Hopefully I have my transmission put back together before then. It's only a two hour drive and I was really looking forward to going this year.

    With YouTube and my shop manual fixing things isn't an issue it's diagnosis that always gets me!

    I just got a new computer with 10 on it also, did not take to long to get use to it.
    I am starting a new job Monday so my only prep time will be these 2 weekends. This weekend is finishing up the bronco and next will be motorhome and trailer.
