Paula and I just returned last weekend from a Jeep USA Sponsored trip to Moab. We did this trip 2 years ago and had a great time! I am posting this for those of you that have Jeeps and are interested in some adventures outside of our area. Please note the link below the photos that connects you to the Jeep USA website with the schedule of when you can sign up for the 2019 Jeep USA Sponsored events. All sign ups are open December 3rd through the 7th. They will release sign ups by the hour and it will be posted once the schedule if finalized. If you are interested in attending an event I encourage you to sign up early as the events do fill up fast. (some within hours)
Paula and I are likely going to attend the "Tillamook" trip in Oregon on June 6th - 8th. We have not done this trip before but have heard it is a lot of fun and they have a run that goes along the beach. Let us know if you are interested in joining us!
This year in Moab we had 18 trails to chose from. This year we did the "Top of the world trail" and "Poison Spider". There were 10 rigs on the Top of the world run and 20 rigs on Poison Spider. These numbers include the trail guides and sponsors. All runs have a lead trail guide that is familiar with each run and guides each rig through the difficult challenges. The larger groups like Poison Spider have a lead guide, mid gunner and tail gunner to assist folks. The number of rigs above include all the trail guides rigs and sponsors. There are meals served an lunches provided as well. One important note, at least for the 2 Moab tips we have attended, is to get to the Rig Inspection Early and get your rig in line to be signed off. Once you are signed off you head over to the trail registration and must have the paperwork to sign up for the trails you want. Note our rig in the picture with all the Jeeps is in the front row. We had pick of any trail we wanted to run. They do fill up and I believe limit each run to no more than 15 rigs not including trail guides and sponsors.
By the way this is not the same thing as the "Moab Easter Jeep Safari" which I hear is really fun! This is a significantly smaller event with only a handful of sponsors and people as compared to the Easter Jeep Safari.
Without a doubt the most scared I have ever been in my Jeep was at the end of the "Top of the world trail" in Moab! (first photo) Paula of course elected to take the pictures while I drove out on the ledge. From the driver seat perspective you can't see any ground under your Jeep... I was the first rig to go out on the ledge so I did not even have a chance to see what it really looked like up on top and walk the area. As you can see the views are spectacular! If you have never been to Moab I could not recommend it enough! Maybe we can get enough interest to coordinate our own Posse run to Moab next year!
Please let us know if you have any questions! Thanks!

I did Moab two years ago with the Trail Busters out of Vacaville, (long time wheeling buddy and my first club 20 ish years ago or more). Moab is amazing. We did Fins and things and a couple of others in the TJ not the commando . I am interested in the June Run. Let me know the details and I'll talk with the wife.
