Pre-Day 1 I drove up from the gulf coast of Alabama, my son drove over from the middle of Michigan for another ride at Moab. We did a guided ride when he graduated high school back in 2008. Flew into Grand Junction, met up with our guides who provided everything - bikes, food, hotels, extra bike and so on. We trekked across single track and back roads over a couple of days into Moab. Then rode some slick rock, Shaffer trail and others. Always wanted to go back. Then my son sold his dirt bike to build a mid-70's Toyota FJ40 rock crawler. So without my riding buddy, I sold mine as well. He was just a college kid, and built a very capable crawler from the frame up. Chrome Moly axles, lockers front and rear, Orion crawl box, Spring over axle, caged, on 37" Nittos and full beadlocks. He also was one of a half dozen in the world that built a "2FE" motor. Take the heads and fuel injection manifold off a later model 3FE, machine and modify it and marry it onto the original 2FE block. More torque and horsepower than either donor motor, and no stalling on climbs. So that I could have something to keep hanging out with him, I bought a new Jeep JK Rubicon, lifted it, caged it, 37's on full beadlocks, skids, etc. So our second trip to Moab was to crawl all the fun stuff. We hired a guide and had at it for a week. Day 1 was Hells Revenge, including climbing Hells Gate, and Fins and Things. Day 2 was Moab Rim, Golden Crack, Golden Spike, Rusty Nail. Then on to Poison Spider, Dead Horse, etc. And so on. My son eventually sold his FJ, so I sold my Jeep. We both had street bikes and I would ride to Oklahoma, Michigan or wherever his job took him to ride. I was excited a couple of months ago when he told me he had just bought another dirt bike. Had to do it - went and bought my Husky. So we started planning another trip to Moab. This time we just wanted to do some day trips around Moab. Planned 4 days with a guide, but we brought our own bikes and gear. (me - 2017 Husky FE501, son - new 2015 Yamaha WRF450) As a bonus, I had been looking for a trials bike for several months. I happened to find a 2016 Beta Evo 300 4T in Colorado Springs about a week before I was leaving for Moab. Swung by there and picked it up on the way.
