    2020 Black Sheep Week - April 12-18

    It's a whole new year and that means another Black Sheep Week in Moab!

    When - Sunday, April 12 - Saturday, April 18
    Where- Moab, UT
    Who - all off-roaders that want to have a good time in Moab

    We will plan on meeting at the Outpost each morning, typically 9 am. https://goo.gl/maps/JAtc5CatqnJXLxgQ8

    A variety of lodging options are available in Moab, including commercial campgrounds, rough camping, hotels (Motel 6 often has the best rates). Condos on the south side of town are becoming more popular and that's now our evening meeting place. If you can get 3+ together, you may save some money vs. hotels. Check out VRBO.com. All vehicles are welcome - Hummers, Jeeps, Rovers, Scorpions, RZRs, etc.

    First timers - the prerequisite is to have fun! As for your vehicle, you'll want the following: good off-road tires, undercarriage protection (skid plates), spare parts for common breakages for your vehicle (CV axles, u-joints, etc.), any specialty tools for your vehicle (wheel locks, odd size sockets/wrenches), air compressor (most air down for the week and air up at the end, but some days have longer roads home so airing up is advised), cooler for your daily bevs/lunch (no alcohol on the trails, please), CB radio preferred.

    What's our daily agenda? Meet at 9ish at the Outpost, go do a trail, get back into town. We've been doing group dinners at one of the condos more often in the past couple of years (Ugly Beans!).

    First times - no worries, we will not get you over your head or let you do any foolish stuff. We'll keep an eye on you and your rig and coach you through things and build your skills before you do anything too difficult.

    Expected to appear this year: a bright yellow Scorpion, a newly lifted H3T Alpha, an upgraded WJ, an updated Bebe-monster with a 6.0 and upgraded axles, and many others.

    After almost a year my rig is finally getting close to being put back together after our last trip. Just have to get the front wheels back on, the diff filled, and the breather line hooked up and it'll be road worthy again. I have some other work to do still to have it Moab ready, like hooking up the air system for the lockers and some other minor things. Oh, and new tires will need to go on before the trip as well.

    I'm going to try to do the full week again, I swear one of these years I will be able to make it happen!

    If anyone has a spare room I'll happily split costs with you for the week. If not I'll grab an AirBnB or something.

    My plan is to be there with JJ. Not sure if it will be the Scorpion or the H1 but I will show up with something. As always, looking forward to a week on great trails with great friends creating great memories.

    I was hoping to have the truck ready this year, a lot of things need attention that added up quick so next year is the goal. Does MOAB require at minimum a rear locker?

    Not 100% sure yet if I'll be able to make it. If I go, it will probably be for a few days.

    No rear locker needed. I did Moab many times w/o a rear locker.

    Are dogs welcome? I'd like to bring my 100lbs border collie/lab mix with me if possible. He's rode as a passenger twice now in Moab and has done pretty good, gotten a bit scared from time to time on an obstacle but who of us haven't . I have a harness to keep him buckled in and bring extra water to keep him and other fury friends hydrated.

    There's always at least one or two dogs in the group. Some stay behind at the condos but others come with us. Parker always comes up with Alrock but I think lately he's been staying back at base.

    As long as he doesn’t bark too much that should be ok.

    The dogs will be better behaved.
