    I didn't really have anything going on, so I decided to go down to Moab for Easter Jeep Safari and hit some trails while I was there. My truck is stock so I'm there more for the great scenery than for any crazy wheeling. But the trails were challenging anyways and I still managed to tear some stuff out of the bottom of the truck so all-in-all it was a great time.

    The drive from Ohio through Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, and the first half of Colorado was pretty much the same scenery. So here's one pic to represent them all:

    It got real beautiful through the Rockies though:

    They had some nice tunnels:

    Here are some Jeeps. There were lots of Jeeps. Jeeps Jeeps Jeeps! I never want to see another Jeep ever again.

    I didn't know Jeep made a pickup truck, but here it is!

    And finally some trail pics. That's my truck in the foreground:

    There were some water crossings but the winter has been dry in Moab so the water was not deep.

    Oh and I almost forgot, here is some video for you!

    You go solo?

    I love trips like that. I've gone from Houston, Texas to Fruita, Colorado for a bike festival one weekend, so i can relate to saying "screw it! I'm driving across the country for fun!".

    Yes, solo. I could have taken the missus along but this isnt her kind of thing and its nice to only have to worry about your own agenda and not what someone else wants to see/do.
