Moab Trip Pics

Just wanted to share the pics I took from my Moab Wheeling trip.....

Here's a few from the drive to Moab from NC





















Ran Pritchett Canyon first thing on Monday.



















Chewy Hill, the first main climb in Pritchett Canyon

































Rocker Knocker......it gave us both hell..





My spotter wasn't helping much lol











She gave up...





























Then came Axle Hill.....









Hooked the winch up to keep the tires on the ground....













went a little too far to the right and bam



Broked



I have no pics of the rest of Pritchett.....once I broke it was all about us getting out of there and cameras where dropped....brok my winch line twice, and had to use 2 snatch blocks hooked to my bumper to pull me up Rock Pile, and ended up pulling my bumper about 2" away from the truck, bending the frame and radiator support.

So the next day we loaded up in Dennis's truck and took a drive down scenic hwy 12 to Bryce Canyon to see the sites....







Prong Horn everywhere!









Also spotted a few Mule Deer...



By Thursday morning my driveshaft was done, and we hit the trail to try and squeeze all the wheeling in that we could...

Ran Top of the World trail, followed my Dome Plateau.



















































lol



























Then back down...























These are from Dome Plateau...























Then we met up with Colorado TTORA the next day to run trifecta, which is Poison Spider trail, Golden Spike trail, and Gold Bar Rim trail linked together.....took 12hrs to run.



































































































































The Crack





























































Golden Stairs















Double Whammy



















































Then Saturday we joined CO TTORA again for a run through BFE...























































































Then we joined a stockish 4 door JK rubicon that was camping next to us on an evening/ night run on Hells Revenge....that trail was awesome......Dennis was so terrified he had his wife drive and he walked most of the trail lol we called him "The Nomad".















































































































Then to finish the trip off we ran Potash Rd and Shafer Switchbacks.

Petroglyphs on the way......















Dino Tracks..











































Then spent the evening in Arches.




















































This is a trip you have to do at least once.......it was a great experience.

I see you guys did "Top of the World" trail....unfortunately all we got was white out conditions but it made for a fun approach! Did you guys get to do Kane Creek Trail or Elephant Hill Trail? I think those were my favorite scenic trails. The White Rim trail was cool but very long and could probably do it in 2wd.

Holy cow! There's some sketchy drop offs on that trail, would suck to slip and slide down the back side on the way down!

We did not.....we mainly stayed in or Around central Moab. So much to do and so little time. The trails take so much time to get to and run that it's hard to do more than 1 or 2 trails a day.

We ran Pritchett Canyon, Top of the World and Dome Plateau, then Poison Spider, Golden Spike, Gold Bar, Hells Revenge, and Potash Rd.

How did you fix the rear driveshaft to get back home? Someone have a spare?

I had 2 options.....

-Go to Moab 4x4 and order a brand new Tom Woods shaft for $450


-Take the shaft to Grand Junction to a driveline shop and have them re tube it for $250


So we loaded up and went to Grand Junction.....they turned it around to me in 1 day and did an awesome job! I will have a spare from now on!

Nope, didn't loose one this trip!

Aired down to 16psi, you drive 10-20 miles to get to the trail head, and by that time I was probably at 20 psi.....
