    A good friend and I are planning a trip to Moab in the spring. We'll be leaving eastern North Carolina probably following I-40 most of the way. I'm new to the group so I have questions. Is there a method setup to a route itinerary so that members can recommend stops along the way (sightseeing, public trails, events) that we might be interested in? Also, stops to see members along the way? We are die hard Jeep guys so Jeep people would be more inclined to be who we'd like to visit. We're always looking for fresh ideas on how to make our Jeeps better. Especially the KISS methods.

    Be sure to stop by Matrimony Spring to fill up water bottles. Excellent drinking water right off the road (Hwy 128), from a pipe jutting out of the cliff wall. IMG_6895.JPG

    I will be doing the same. We are thinking the first 2 weeks of June. We are driving out from Tampa FL. The whole family. We will be seeing the sites as well but I want to get some of the EPIC Moab trails, Imogene pass, and many of the sties within about 3 hours of MOAB. I just started my planning today.

    Any suggestions, websites, etc let me know. I am going into this with a clean slate.

    Thank you

    This sounds like a great trip and have been looking at sites all morning. I hope to get a little mountain biking and 4x4 fun in. Mountain bike project actually had a lot of good information in regards to camping and other non biking information. Hope you ha e a great time.

    We've not gotten too heavy into the route/sites to visit yet. I'll post as things progress. If our timeline crosses maybe we can meet up somewhere on the route. We'll be running on or near I-40.

    I love Moab country but it's become such a damn zoo that I avoid it more often than not these days. Then, I'm not a wheeler or have any interest in running trails so, other than Arches, little there interests me anymore. And talk about a zoo - Arches. Sigh. We're loving our parks to death. Glad I've been to most that interest me multiple times in years past. Now, I look for the lesser known areas and don't post coordinates online when I find something good.

    Here is a website I found that may help with a few trails. Have fun, I'm thinking of heading there shortly as well.
