:( Moab plans thwarted

Unfinished projects (due to weather) turned Moab from "the trip of the year" into a dream.

Have fun guys, more videos!

Happy 4 u guys its been along time wish we were there to celebrate ur return! Have fun!


Also wondering if Ryan is as crazy a driver as he used to be?

Well... Yes and No... LOL Got the fam with me and the Wife says not allowed this time. Gotta drive back home blah blah blah.... LOL

That and its not lifted so I don't even know its capabilities yet... :)

Never even drove the old one off-road stock. It was lifted right away... This one I am not wasting the money on this suspension. Would rather spend it on SAS business.

Saturday and Sunday were absolutely beautiful couldn't have asked for better weather. On top of that, the dust was way down because of the moisture in the soil and the fact that the slick rock had been "washed off".

I'll take a bit of rain and cooler days over 100 degrees any time. This time of year you can never tell what mother nature might have in mind as we have seen nearly 100 degrees on this same weekend in previous years.

I agree! It was very awesome to be out here in these temps. Our family had a great time out here.

That's pretty funny to see.

Finally made it home. An 18 wheeler carrying cinder blocks overturned on the ramp. Took awhile to clean up the mess...

We just pulled in about an hour ago.

They had a small fire on I70 and we had to re-route through Idaho Springs.

Ready to mod up the Ex some more and head back out!
