    Pre-EJS week in Moab

    Spring break was three weeks before EJS for us this year, so we moved up our Moab trip. We had an XJ, two JKRs, and two JKURs.

    We drove from Omaha on Saturday, did Hell's Revenge on Sunday, Elephant Hill and Beef Basin on Monday. One of our guys (a JKUR) had to go back home on Tuesday, but the rest of us did Poison Spider Mesa, Golden Spike, and Gold Bar Rim. On Wednesday, we finished with Cliff Hanger.

    The XJ's power steering got beat up pretty bad - he didn't do Cliff Hanger. My tail pipe managed to get modified into a flatter shape, and my front bumper earned a nice dent, on Elephant Hill. I managed to make it all the way to the end of Cliff Hanger without issue - but rammed my tie rod into a rock as I tried to climb out of the beginning/ending staircase. Thankfully, Moab 4x4 Outpost had a used tie rod in their junk pile that I was able to pick up for $50 and swap out in our motel parking lot.

    Here are a few pics:

    It was a great week. I wish Moab wasn't a 13-hour drive from home!!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
