Ole and I attended the 38th Annual Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. The travel to Moab was uneventful, but it always seems to take so long to get there, approximately 1,100 miles, one-way. We arrived in Moab around 11 a.m. on April 2nd. That gave us a little time to check out downtown, before town got too busy, and get ready for our week of scheduled trails. Ole & I received a good draw for the trails we signed up for:
Sat., April 3 - Hells Revenge (rated 4); Sun., April 4 - Steel Bender (3 1/2); Mon., April 5 - Fins & Things ( 3 1/2) We didn’t wheel this day, due to lots, and lots of rain on Sunday night. Tues., April 6 - Golden Spike (4+); Thurs., April 8 - Poison Spider Mesa(4).
We didn’t request trails for Wednesday or Friday. The Red Rock 4-wheelers use a lottery draw for trail selection. This makes it as fair as possible for the approximately. 2,000 4-wheelers who participant in the week-long event, with 34 trails (so little time, so many trails).
The Red Rock 4-wheelers do an excellent jot of the entire event. This club also is the Best, when it comes to land-stewardship and informing the participants about the do’s & don’t’s before and during the days trail outing. I have learned over the few years we have been attending Jeep Safari, that the Red Rock 4-wheelers maintain and do litter on every trail, several times during the year (weather permitting).
If you get a chance to attend the Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, please do so. You don’t have to own a Jeep, all 4-wheel drive vehicles are welcome. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Sherry Stortroen
