So, which did you like better - Farmington or Moab?
Hard question to answer because they're just so different.
Farmington was awsome because everything had a bypass if needed and different lines to take on each trail. You can make that place as easy or hard as you want to. Every trail we took was close to camp and had a fair amount of downtime which was nice for my wife and dogs. Doug and Joe were great hosts and fun to wheel with. Doug did a whole bunch of stuff he had never done before, so i think he had a good time as well because he wasn't stuck just showing us around.
Moab had AMAZING scenery. The rock there is extremely grippy unlike Farmington. The trails were a lot longer which was a big negative for the dogs. My wife also gets a little car sick so 4-6 hours in the truck bouncing around was a bit much at times. The trails are all away from camp which means you need to plan accordingly unlike Farmington where we were never more than 20 minutes from camp. Being right next to town in Moab was extremely nice when camping for 7 days.
Both were a great time. When i do another long trip like this one i won't be taking the dogs again. They did great, we loved having them.....but it gets a little stressful having to watch them and deal with them 24/7 like that for an extended time. In Moab they had to spend a lot of time in the truck in the heat and i felt bad at times.
My wife had a really good time as well. She missed the comforts of home like anyone would, but i don't think she'll be doing another week long camping trip with me again.......lol. She said she'll do the 1-2 days trips anytime though.
Overall a great trip. I almost got hit head on at 70mph on the way out there. I had previously cursed ABS, but when a full size truck crosses the double yellow line and is coming straight towards the truck and you have to skid sideways you gain an appreciation for ABS.
We had to setup camp and tear it down 4 times total which was a pain in the ass for us.
If i didn't get those sliders installed my truck would be completely trashed right now. I beat the hell out of those things. I took some body damage, such is life. I plan on having more armor before the June trip though
