    I'll have two Jeeps and 4 people going with me so I more than likely will too. It'd be nice to have a couple back to back so we'd have space to spread out the group & have two garages to put stuff in.

    You mean one garage right? I’m sleeping in the other. Lol

    Agreed. You’re going to need a gooseneck to get both of those there!

    Haha, just pile up all the soft tops - they'll make a nice mattress!

    I thought about it but we all agreed that we want to drive them both out there.

    If I could make a suggestion - You would be better served staying in Ouray rather than Telluride. The trails will be a lot more accessible that way. Otherwise you have to travel over a pass (Imogene or Ophir) just to get to them. Almost all of the trailheads are off of Hwy 550 (Million Dollar Highway) which comes directly out of Ouray to the south.

    My recommendation:

    Day 1 - Black Bear Pass, lunch in Telluride, Imogene Pass back to Ouray. This is the classic setup and should be non-negotiable.

    Day 2 - First mile of Mineral Creek -> Poughkeepsie Gulch -> Corkscrew Gulch.

    Day 3 - Mineral Creek -> Engineer Pass, out and back, or maybe Red Mountain Pass or Clear Lake.

    I've got a transfer case on standby.

    I'm subscribing as well. Short of an emergency, I would love to go.

    As stated, it would be great to meet up with the Wayalifers stuck on the wrong coast😉

    Moab was great this past spring, and I can't wait to go back for more.

    I will have to see as time gets closer whether or not I can do both weeks, but I would sure like to.

    As for trails, Cliffhanger is one of my favorites, and I don't think you can call a Moab trip complete without Golden Spike, and might as well make it a day and do Poison Spider, Gold Bar Rim, and maybe even Rusty Nail.

    Goddammit. Summer is the absolute worst time for me to plan any time off, but this would be epic for sure. Put me on the maybe list and I'll put it on my calendar and try to make it happen.

    Count me in! They have a really good KOA in Moab, so the earlier we book, the better.
    This sounds like a great trip with great people!

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.
