Moab Utah (October '02)
in October: almost 50 XJ's from stock to heavily modified "junk",
near perfect weather--ahhhh, does it get any better? This years'
event was the most fun I've ever had in Moab, probably the most
fun I've ever had 'wheeling, period. Over the course
of a week there were more than a dozen officially scheduled trail
runs, as well as many more impromptu trips to Proving Grounds and
Helldorado at night for those who just couldn't get enough time
behind the wheel during the daylight hours. Amy and I ran 5 trails
with one day in camp (after Behind the Rocks) to repair a leaking
rear diff. and a busted rear shock mount.
Below are links to pictures and stories of a week of incredible
scenery, challenging trails, twisted metal, and above all a great
bunch of Cherokee enthusiasts from the far corners of the globe...well,
at least in Hagen's case! No details have been spared to protect
the innocent, scared, or stupid. Big thanks to Dan Riggs for keeping
it organized and Mil, Mark, Jeff, Sean P., and the rest of the trail
leaders for their usual superb guiding and spotting through some
trick spots! We hope you enjoy the pictures, and we hope to see
you next year to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the XJ...
