It was Saturday afternoon and we were still lurking around Moab, mooching off the company's dime, while everyone else had gone home earlier that morning. What were they all thinking? Today was the day to be in Moab! Spring Break had coincided with the end of the Easter Jeep Safari, meaning there were a ton of big trucks, stupid drivers, and hot girls. Why would anyone want to leave?
We had even convinced George Gay, owner of this badass '85 Blazer, to put off his long drive back to Skiatook, Oklahoma, for an extra day and go out with us for a little trail ride. We ran into George (actually, we chased him down on foot) the night before as he pulled into the shop his father had worked at since George was little. George was originally a native of Moab, but moved to Oklahoma for work-related reasons. We're still tryin' to figure that out. Move from Moab? Just sleep in the Blazer and scrounge off your friends for gas money!
But then again, without the job George wouldn't have a Blazer as sweet as this-44-inch Boggers, doubler kits, fully hydraulic steering, and custom bodywork aren't cheap, you know.
