    Trans America Trail

    Well it’s that time of year once again for my annual trans America trail. Every year I take a week or two and explore the trans America trail. This year will kick off in Trinidad Colorado. Plan is to take two weeks and enjoy some off road camping and exploring. Each year I have had anywhere from 10 vehicles to 4 on the trip. I generally start inviting around March and we head out in June. This year we will be meeting on June 9th and plan on spending 2 weeks running the trail. This is an open invitation, the more the better.

    3 weeks away from 2 weeks of exploring Colorado and Utah and anything else we have time for. As of now there will be only 3 Jeeps. However it would be great to meet up with more!

    If I didn't have a conference in San Antonio during that period I would join.

    I just got a weather update from a guy in Colorado and it seems that a lot of the trails are closed due to snow and probably won’t open for a couple months. Can anyone confirm this? And if so does anyone think Moab will be doable instead?

    Not sure what trails you are trying to run but most of the higher altitude trails don't open till early July out there.
    Check here, the site is user updated but they have the relevant contact info for the trails as well:

    As for Moab, that is pretty much open year round. Might be a little warm in mid June but not outrageous.

    I have a feeling that our trails here will open later than usual this year. Hell, we just got another snow storm yesterday.

    Mainland weather is crazy...tornadoes, floods, snowstorms; I’m glad we only have to worry about volcanic eruptions and tsunamis...

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.
