Moab Easter Jeep Safari 2008 - Days 1 & 2

Posted in Events on March 1, 2008

It's Monday, March 17th 2008, and we are all here... in Moab Utah.

The whole gang is here, Fred rolled out in the UAJK, Kevin our long-term JK Rubicon, Editor Pewe brought a couple of Flatties, and Ali and I cruised out in his Superduty (pick up next months issue for the build of the Superduty). Mine and Ali's journey to Moab started out at our world headquarters in the hills high above Los Angeles (or maybe that just sounds better than where we really met) early on Sunday morning (I know I know, I'm a day behind... sue me). The drive to Moab was pretty uneventful with the exception of nearly running out of fuel, getting caught in a snow storm... in all of Utah, seeing several cars and semi's in ditchs, and getting our windows cleaned for free while fueling up (does that even happen anymore in this country?).

So that's it, we made it, the weather in Moab is freezing cold, and we are out on the trails covering all the action we can for you, our favorite readers!

Moab Easter Jeep Safari 2008 - Day 2

We made it safely to Moab, got some rest, and then it was off to the trails!

The first trail that we hit at this years EJS was the famous Pritchett Canyon. Now when I say 'hit' I don't mean that we actually ran the trail, with Ali's Super Duty that would be suicide... for the truck at least. So instead we rounded the back taking parts of the Behind the Rocks trail to get to the end/good part of Pritchett. This is where we would encounter our first 'flop' of the week.

Luckily for the driver of this beautiful red CJ he was uninjured and his Jeep only sustained minor damage to the window frame and lucky for us we had the cameras firing.
