    Moab Black Sheep Week - Oct 2017

    Well, we need to plan on a Black Sheep Week for October 2017! We haven't done a fall trip in a while but I know there's a lot of interest. The dates are Sunday, October 1 through Saturday, October 7. As usual, people can come and go as fits their schedule.

    Stock Hummers can do Moab but it's better to have upgraded tires, under carriage protection and rocker protection. Beyond that, carry the typical spares for your vehicle - H1s, H2s, and H3/H3Ts all have different "typical" spares. Bring some basic tools but it's likely the group will have a lot of tools too. You do want to bring vehicle-specific tools, from locking lug nut keys to the correct size wrench to remove a bent tie rod.

    Beginners are welcome! We'll never put you in a bad spot beyond the capability of your vehicle. If the group decides on a hard core trail, there will be a second group for a milder trail or you can go exploring on your own.

    Post up below if you're in, your considering it, etc. I'll start and maintain a list as we move forward.

    I'll probably just do the beginning weekend again, but I'm going to plan on being there. I should have a lot of my critical tasks completed by then. Like replacing the front differential bushings I apparently wrecked last time!

    I'm considering it, just a matter of how things are going at work at that time. I reinforced the frame rails around my steering box so hopefully no more breaking bolts ... [I'll just break something else... ?]

    If i can get family to come along I'm 100% in.

    There can be snow in the areas around Moab such as in Arches, Big Flat (off hwy 313) and south of town and some areas like Hell's revenge can get ice at times. And sometimes snow in Moab. I believe it was my first winter in Moab we had about 8 inches of snow in Moab on Dec 22 or 23.
