Weekend in Moab

Took a roadie up to Moab to help my grandfather this weekend. Doing some mining work and needed a driver. Only real mistake was taking the Avalanche, not the Wrangler.

Jeep Mecca. It is like a Jeep Magazine photo shoot everywhere you look. Pimped Jeeps that just make you jealous. And make you want to spend money.

This trip was on his dime, so I ate Prime Rib and Tri-tip. In exchange, he made me take my black Avy through sage brush and cedars and now it needs a wax job, let alone over rocks and nastiness. I have a Jeep for stuff like that and I would have enjoyed it instead of seeing every rock with a $$$ on it and having my mind constantly worrying about what damage I was doing to the highway truck.

"The Damned thing is a 4 Wheel Drive. What'cha got a 4WD for if you don't take it off road?"

Uh, for driving up I-15 and Parowan Canyon in a snowstorm. My Avy is for road trips not for off-roading. I have a brand new Rubicon that is lifted, has a winch, high lift, every kind of off road supply you need, and instead, we are taking the family road trip wagon through the mountains.

It is payback for when I was a Junior and Senior in high school and I took his old red and white Ford places that it never should have been.
