We had 9 jeeps on the 2nd Annual Jeep-CJ.com Moab trail ride.
A million thanks to Posi for planning this and to MrIPlayBass for leading the way on the trails.

Ben pulled my Jeep to Moab with his pickup. I shot this picture on the way.




Monday we went on SevenMile Rim trail north of town. Here's a GPS map of our route:
https://spotwalla.com/tripViewer.php...=0&showAll=yes



OldJeepLady noticed some coolant under my Jeep. A small nut has been pinned next to my radiator. The vibrations created a leak. Shooby gave my some Radiator Stop Leak. I never saw another drop of coolant the rest of the week.





This trail has some ledges.







The view from the top was fantastic.













The others may be posting here or they may start their own thread.

A few more pictures from day 1 in Moab:

Driver's meeting

The trailhead where BusaDave9's CJ marked his territory.

And a few out on the trail.

We only lost one jeep...but of course we backtracked and found them. What a fun trail, and good to actually see it in the daylight... hahaha



Taken in Moab, sent from Colorado Springs

The weather was very good. The forcast was not good but it never turned out as bad as what the weatherman was saying it would be. On Monday we got some light rain. And on Tuesday it was raining at the beginning of the day but the sun soon came out.

There was a bolt lodged next to my radiator. We loosened up the radiator and removed the bolt.



Then a continuous stream of coolant shot out of the hole. This was the first day of the trail rides and was very disappointing for me. What should I do? Try to limp back to town? Have a radiator shop fix it? Will I be able to join the group for any trail rides? Shoobie had some Radiator Stop-Leak. We opened up the cap and poured it in. The radiator must not have been leaking very long because the coolant was right up near the top.

I kept a close eye on it, especially at first. I never found a single drop dripping from my radiator for the rest of the trip.

The routes and trails were all planned out by Posi. MrIPlayBass also had a big hand in leading and organizing this year's Moab trail ride. Every evening at dinner MrIPlayBass was going over the maps, book and schedule to make sure the next day's trail ride would be a success. I can't thanks those two enough.

Tuesday morning we headed out to Hell's Revenge. Later in the day we'll be going through the Fins and Things trail.

Here's a link to a GPS map of our route:
https://spotwalla.com/tripViewer.php...=0&showAll=yes

As you can see the trail-head was just east of town. This is Sand Flats
Recreational Area.

It was raining in the morning. We paid the entrance fee to the Sand Flats Recreational Area. After airing down in the parking lot we immediately took to the trail that headed up a steep (wet) rock fin.





These were some steep trails but they were also Slick Rock. Slick Rock is anything but slick (unless it's raining).



We encountered a Ford Bronco group.
These guys went up Hell's Revenge.



The driver of this white Bronco had a hard time keeping his tires on the ground. It looked like he was going to roll over backwards.



There were lots of steep slick-rock slops.



There was very little dirt, mainly just rock.





We came down this very steep slope. ColdAir went back up it to try it again. He was always up for challenges.



Next we went by The Escalator. The next picture is of the same White Bronco that looked like he might roll over backwards down Hell's Revenge. On The Escalator he didn't seem to be doing much better. His right tires fell into the crevasse and it looked like he sustained some body damage on the right. We didn't stick around to find out the details.





After Hell's Revenge Trail we continued on to the Fins and Things Trail.



We still encountered a lot of steep rock slopes. This next picture is Bobbie. He had a bypass he could have used.



Most of the steep slopes had bypasses ... until we got to this hill. This one was ridiculous. MrIPlayBass was the first to try it. He spun all four tires and after they were warm continued up the slope.









We had one stock jeep in the group. It was decided to winch this jeep up. The rest of us made it up the slope.

This was another great day of wheeling.

to be continued ...
