    2017 Moab Black Sheep April 16-21

    It's time to start planning for your next, or first, trip to Moab. All are welcome, from Hummers to Scorpions to Jeeps to Colorado-based Raptors.

    As usual, we'll start on Easter Sunday, April 16, as EJS winds down. Note that because of EJS, if you come on the 15th hotel rates can be high. Besides hotels, there are area campgrounds and you might even get an Outpost permit from Neo himself (PM him for information).

    Trails can be mild to wild, depending on the people and rigs that day. Sometimes we split into two groups so we can all have fun, even if we're not set up for hard-core trails. I'm happy to take anyone on milder trails and hopefully 06 H3 will take a break from his career to spend a few days with us and show us his SASsome H3.

    Each day usually begins at the Outpost (Neo's house) and ends there with a fire, a few adult beverages and tales of the trail. And yes, it's family and pet friendly.

    Get your rig in shape, upgrade it if necessary, ask us about spare parts/tools to carry and come join us in Moab.

    Julie and I will arrive on Saturday and be there all week.

    BTW, I have another set of 35x12.50/17 Toyo Open Country M/T tires for sale and can bring them to Moab. They are off my current Jeep and four have 4200 miles while the fifth is new. One tire has a plug in the center of the tread, I hate roofing nails. $1,100

    Going to try and make my first one. Since I've never been there, can you post the address where we'll be meeting so I can start planning. Are there hotels nearby or camp grounds?

    Lots of hotels and campgrounds nearby. Given that it is the last weekend of EJS things might be crowded and expensive the first weekend.

    Neo has been known to let people camp in his backyard and use his spare bathroom for a donation of toilet paper and some cash to help with the water bill.

    I'm in, I may have a tow rig for the trip, or I'll rent a diesel RV/Motorhome and pull the hummer up for the week. I'll book time off next week.

    I'd like to go, but we're taking a trip out to NH in June and that'll use up almost all of my time off.
