We'er simple people, two bed rooms and two baths will get us by. Now all I need is a way to make a living out that way.

That's the tricky part. Much of this town is oil and gas related, which I am in. The lay offs have been unprecedented. Pretty scary.

Re: Moab Junky's Adventures

Hang in there. I heard on the News that Russia and Opec are in talks to slow production, not that I'm over joyed at higher gas prices but I know the low prices are hurting at lot of good people out west. Strange how that works.

Re: Moab Junky's Adventures

We just returned from the Moab Jeep Safari 2016. This was the 50 year anniversary and it did not disappoint. We camped out in the desert, it was crowded but we still found a great spot.

Although I couldn't find a level place to park the FJ.

We love to run trails and see new places almost as much as we enjoy camping.

We were showing my Wife's Brother the area. He was following in his 4runner. This family jumped out of their Jeep and asked if we would take their picture.

After doing so, I caught the guy admiring the FJ. Perhaps he was just peeing on it....now I'm not sure????

The Jeepers took one of us. I honestly don't know what is keeping that rock in place.

We made it over to Potato Salad Hill. It was a lot of fun watching all the different rigs climb. Toyota was well represented. That maroon Tacoma in the back ground with the rocks painted (it's a wrap) on the rockers did really well. It's sitting on 37's as is this 1985 pick up.

Re: Moab Junky's Adventures

The sky was breathtaking and the snow capped mountains were easy on the eyes as well.

The new tires performed flawlessly on the slick rock as well as the sand. This was inside Arches National Park. Many aren't aware that there are some decent trails to run inside the park. No quads, dirt bikes or UTV's allowed.

14 pounds of air in the tires made a pretty decent foot print.

Of course we made it out after dark.

Re: Moab Junky's Adventures

Took the MJ out to play in the desert today. As usual it did a wonderful job pulling the scooters. (cell phone pic)

After a couple hours of riding, I put on some tunes and laid down in the back of the FJ to relax. I've had nice insulated shells on several pick up trucks throughout the years. The FJ is so much nicer to relax in because of the sound system.

Our dog loves to go for rides in the desert.

Thanks Deb. I've always lived by the motto, "Work hard, play harder".


(After all, I could get run over by a Mack truck tomorrow).

Great motto...and philosophy.

It's true, you could - I did - and believe me life #2 is getting lived full-throttle. Good if you can do it without such extreme motivation
