1st Annual UTV Rally

On the trail in Moab at the UTV Rally - Gold Bar Trail

June 7-9, 2007
Moab, UT

First Annual UTV Rally - Moab, UT
UTV Rally - Moab, Utah

Although it was early June, the weather was more like March on the drive from Northern California to Moab.  It rained almost all the way from Reno to Salt Lake City, and the wind was blowing 40+ mph the entire time.  A few gusts nearly blew me off the road.  Once I arrived in Moab on Wednesday, the weather did not let up.  It was cold and windy. Just a few days before, it was 95 degrees.  By Friday it was back to being beautiful. Just reaffirms to me that you cannot depend on desert weather.

Our group traveled over 70 miles roundtrip from the Archview Resort to the White Wash Sand Dunes and back. On the ride with us were a few industry folks - Aaron from PRP Seats and Pete from Got Sand?.

The Moab Action Shots van was out taking pictures of us and got stuck.  A few of the guys with winches were eager to break them out and help get them back on the road.

The last few miles of the trip, I got to ride with Wally from RhinoWorld.net. Wally has his Rhino set up for long distance trips with tires/wheels, seats, roll cage & bumper, spare tires, a-arms and shock and GPS. I had a great time flying down from the slick rock to the valley floor.
