    Exclamation April 2021 Black Sheep Week

    Let's try this again - hoping no pandemic in 2021

    When - Sunday, April 4 - Saturday, April 10, 2021
    Where- Moab, UT
    Who - all off-roaders that want to have a good time in Moab

    We will plan on meeting somewhere TBD in Moab; it's doubtful the Outpost will be available.

    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. Thanks to Jeri, we were able to book our regular condo.

    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, 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.


    Attendee List

    Best guess and confirmed is below. I will start cleaning up as we get confirmations.

    I'm going to plan on the full week, but probably won't come down until Sunday afternoon so as to spend Easter morning with the family.

    The guys at PHR and I will already be up there for eastern jeep safari the week prior, most likely we will do the first half of the week! Probably SUN-WED. We will be bringing an H1, H2 and H3.

    Awesome! Is your better half coming with you?

    Reloader began cleaning up his front axle this week. Hope he gets it all together.

    Me and my son are going to try to make it in 2021 since we didnít get to make it for 2020. It is a 24 hour drive each way so should get there Sunday and would have to leave Saturday morning.

    Yes. 20 hours actual drive time. With gas and pee stops it is 24 hours on the road time. No great way to get there. Lots of small roads and we do pass through New Mexico, which has the best roads in the country...10 feet at a time.

    Wow. My behind the wheel time will be 24 hours but interstate and highway most of the way.
