    Moab Vehicle Inspection checklist

    Slightly off topic, but does anyone have the vehicle inspection checklist for moab? I've been looking for it everywhere, it was sent to me in a packet for moab V... I'm probably not going this year, can't sign up anymore anyway, but please post it here if anyone can for info...

    Last time I went, some of the things were

    WATER
    CB
    Orange flag
    full size spare...

    etc...

    Thanks!

    Good idea.

    Do we need to bring some sort of flag for Moab? I have a bunch of supplies I am bringing, but a good collective checklist would be helpful.

    We had to have them for moab V... We also did a rallycross by some sand dunes south of moab that year, they may have been for that. When I did Moab V, we were sent packets after registration that had all the checklists...

    Thumbs up

    No Official ZuZu is no big deal. We have plenty of capable people who can lead a trail.

    With that said, I'll lead the VX Run on Tuesday (Elephant Hill @ Canyonlands N.P.). Biju will be helping with getting everyone from Moab to Canyonlands N.P. He's in charge of setting up the time and place for everyone to leave from in Moab. He will put up a post soon.

    A few things to bring.
    1) Tools
    2) Jumper Cables
    3) CB
    4) Air Pump (plugs into lighter)
    5) Tow Rope
    6) Water
    7) Lunch (We will stop and relax for lunch)
    8) Remember to tie down your spare.
    9) Extra quart of oil
    10) Binoculars
    11) Hat
    12) Sun glasses
    13) Sun screen
    14) A camera

    Peace.
    Tom

    No flags are needed for trails in Moab. The past two years only the trail leader, shotgunner, and tailgunners ran flags on the trail but only to identify them as such (dunes are another story). If you do a search on here you will find many check lists of items to carry. ZuZoo is just like any other trip on the trail, carry the basic nessesities. And its a good idea to tie down EVERYTHINGthat can fly and hit you in the head or get lodged under a gas or break pedal! I tie everything down that moves including occupents (buckle up).

    I havent determined that yet.

    One option is around Natural Bridges...

    Another is near the National Park (Canyonlands). There is a back road way to EH that intersects on the SW tail that comes off the loop.

    And then there is another yet another to be determined option...

    What time are you guys planning to start the trail on Tue? 9A, 10A?
    Take care,

    Hi guys...apologies if this has been brought up before, but one important thing to remember about Elephant Hill is NO PETS in the backcountry. Not even in the vehicle, once you leave the pavement.

    Having said that, it is definitely worth the trip!

    Might even see you there, some of us MWIOR guys are planning an EH trip as well...
