Moab, Ahhhhhhhhhhh, Moab! Moab, Moab, Moab!  It has a nice ring to it doesn't it?  Every Jeeper that lives out West is drawn to the area.  Located just 6 hours west of Denver on I-70, if you haven't been there you need to go!  If you go after Memorial Day and before Labor Day, it's a hot one, so prepare for it and bring lot's of water!  Rafters, Hikers, Mountain Bikers, and Jeepers know the area for it's wonderful red rock scenery, and 'Moab Slickrock'.  Many of you already know, as you have 'been there', it's a playground for grown-ups.  No other place in the country comes close; Moab is 'Jeepin Heaven'!

Ahhhhhh......Slickrock paradise!!!

    The HoboJeepers ventured west from Denver on I-70 towards the Slickrock Gods for the long anticipated 2001 Memorial Day Weekend.  Each Hobo left at different times on Thursday May 24th, and we all eventually met up at a nice campsite north of Moab.  The 2001 MEMORIAL MOAB group consisted of: Scott "Mad Max" wife Janet, and sons Tom and Pete Maxwell (TJ), Chris "Colonel" Potter (CJ) with twin brother Craig, and good friend Bob (both from Nebraska), Sean "Joker" Tallant (TJ), Steve "Moose" Gilbert (TJ) with his girlfriend Holly, and myself "Hobo Willy" (CJ) with my jeepin-sidekick Molly.

Moab and/or no 'bust'!!  Heading West on !-70 near Copper Mountain...

    For the past 12 days proceeding the Thursday departure date, my Jeep had been at an unnamed and certainly not recommended shop near 62nd and Carr outside on blocks with the AMC 20 out.  One thing after another led to me finally waiting Thursday (D-Day) morning from 8am to 2pm when my axle was finally put back together.  I was trying to eliminate shaking in the rear end, well---after $500+ I still had it (along with added u-joint vibration) for my adventure West on I-70!  ARRGGG--SIGH!!

POISON SPIDER LOOP/ GOLDEN SPIKE/ GOLD BAR RIM

 

    Waking up to a nice mild morning each day, even the few mosquitoes that were out could not hold back the fact you and your Jeep were in Moab!  The day temps I heard were in the 90's, while the nights were a mild upper 50's.  For 3 fun days, we followed 6 different trails up and over numerous obstacles, ledges, and fields of slickrock!  Each trip was planned to introduce the 'newbies' Colonel and Moose to Moab.  From the moderate Steel Bender, on to Hell's Revenge 4+, and finally building to the 9 hour + Poison Spider thru Golden Spike to Gold Bar Rim Loop, we certainly got our fill!! Ahhhh-Moab!!

Slickrock and obstacles....enough fun for a whole week!!
