Sorry for some of the inaccurate titles to the videos.
I labeled them when We returned from Moab in a quick manner. (added them all to a mass storage device)
There are so many I was just slapping names on them left and right.
Oh and Jon not John  :hammerhead: My bad......
I have tons of them, I like that they give you an idea of What driving Moab is really like as apposed to a highlight video. Don't Get me wrong I like looking good in the Highlight Videos.
Tonight if I have time I will add some that Make us look like complete Rookies, LOL

Admittedly, I didn't sleep well at all last night thanks to the excitement of the upcoming Moab trip.  I had some caffeine a little too late in the day, plus had two good nights of sleep over the weekend, so really didn't need an adrenaline rush right before going to bed.  It probably didn't make much difference as my daughter had me up three times before I fell asleep, it was one of her random needy nights.  I'm positive that I'll sleep very well tonight.

We don't need no stinking running order. I think he said the first three days are Hell's Revenge, Rusty Nail, and Widow Maker for the first three days. Elephant Hill was locked for Wednesday (remember you have to run officially in groups of three with a 30 minute departure gap), and then Behind the Rocks and Sevenmile Rim on Thursday and Friday maybe?

In Moab, the record high in May is 105 degrees and the record low is 28 degrees.  Currently, it appears to be on the cooler side of average.  The average high in May is 83 degrees and the average low is 50 degrees.

The only thing that makes me think it could be pretty warm is that the record high in Moab for March is 86 degrees (3 degrees above the average in May) and I've been there when it felt really hot in a slow moving vehicle with heat coming off the vehicle.

It just might test your cooling system.

You could easily do Hell's Revenge, Metal Masher (I think), and Elephant Hill, but there are two or three places that would be difficult on Rusty Nail, White Knuckle would be the major issue on Behind the Rocks.

Are you thinking of getting a Steve Irwin sticker for the rear window?

You said you just needed to add an Aussie to the rear.  Steve Irwin is an Aussie and you could put a sticker of him on the rear of your Jeep.
