Moab, just the simple mention of this 4-letter word and the adrenaline begins pumping with images of slick rock and the unique jeepin' to be had there. Moab is the Mecca of all jeeping wonderlands, and the only place in the world with challenges that test and amuse you. The term slick rock is certainly an antonym when talking about the traction one gets on steep hill climbs. Your carburetor will give out on some climbs before your tires start to lose traction. Driving west out of Grand Junction still 2 hours from Moab, you begin to wonder where in all this desert is it? Not until you drive south from I-70 and begin to see the red sandstone cliffs do you know you are in jeepin heaven.
On Thursday May 25th, the HoboJeepers headed west on I-70 to seek the elusive slick rock, and enjoy 3 great days of trails over the Memorial Day weekend. Hobos Scott "Mad Max" Maxwell and his son Pete and myself pulling a tent trailer, with my jeepin-side kick Molly headed out later that day. Hobo Paul Weisz and his son Brett pulled his jeep out and arrived oh about 1:30am at our sandy campsite and proceeded to bury it for a good nights rest. Plans for the weekend include Fins and Things/and some of Hell's Revenge on Friday, All of Hell's Revenge on Saturday, and the long Poison to Gold Bar Rim trails on Sunday.
