After getting left out of the Moab tradition last year, I jumped on the chance to go this year. I'm not sure when the tradition started but, for as long as I've been around, James and Ryan (my brother in laws), Justin (friend), and Gage have gone to Moab to prove their manlihood and test the limits of their jeeps. Let me tell you, it wasn't anything like I expected. We spent three days on Moab Rim and Pritchett Canyon, two of the more challenging trails. I had a lot of fun being the passenger, as well as the photographer. I learned that Jeeps don't really need most of their parts because it seemed like any time something got broken or bent someone would say "You really don't need that anyway." The other phrase I got used to was "You're already scratching it, you might as well keep going." Anyway, we met a lot of interesting people, made a few creative repairs, the Jeep got a few dents and scratches, and it felt really weird not having to carry a diaper bag everywhere we went (Trevin stayed with Sugar). It's hard to describe all the fun and excitement in words and the pictures don't really do it justice, but we had fun and I can't wait to go again.
