I remember you posting these back then. I have to say, I do not mind driving to the top of a 13000 mountain pass with my FSJ, but I do not do Lion's Back!

Why do I hear that insane screech from the old cartoons usually done when someone was falling?
Definitely have to have low range for that one and maybe an anchor from a battle ship dragging behind!!!!!

That's even more insane looking than from the ground. The only way I'll get to the top of Lions Back is via HELICOPTER. <g>

The Lion's Back is insane



I wouldn't try it in my Grand either!

You can walk up it - you'd have to go on all fours at the base of it though...



There is a TON of other trails in the Moab area - you'll have a blast, I guarantee it. Carry a lot of water!

That was a cool video you posted of that ride on lions back. How steep is it? Degree of incline?

I don't have any video, just some photos. That's someone else. I've seen a couple videos out there, they're pretty cool.

The incline changes. There's at least three distinct areas. I didn't put an inclinometer on it, so I don't know the inclination for certain...

1) The Bottom - this is the steepest part, estimate 30 degrees, probably about 50 feet long or so. Going up, all you can see is the sky through your front windshield here. Hope you took a good line.

2) 50 feet to about 1/3 of the way up - the lowest incline, estimate 20 degrees. It's here that you realize that there is, in fact, no where to turn around, and no way to stop without the distinct chance that you won't have the momentum to get going UP again.

3) The last 2/3, pretty steep, estimate 25 degrees. You can barely see the ground, about 30 feet ahead of you. Follow the tire tracks, hope they didn't go over the edge. You can't see the ground where it starts to level off toward the top, so it looks like you're riding off to nowhere.

Eventually, we came to the first place level enough for me to comfortably stop, and not be worried about getting going again. Had to get out, relax a bit. Pondered what kind of trouble I'd be in if I left the Jeep right there and walked down.

Next came the World's Scariest Three Point Turn. There's enough room to turn a little Jeep, but it's very unnerving, looking out into space, edging toward it, cranking the wheel.

My little Jeep at the time had an automatic. I put it in low range, and first gear, but I was still riding the brakes pretty hard all the way down. Had to scout the way down - as you see in the photo, you can see where you're going on the way down, but there still is opprotunity to take the wrong path.

It was a rush I'll never forget. Nothing else is quite like it.

(spelling edit)

[quote=blt2krl]Personally, I could give a rats rear end what we call this gathering. All I care is that finally the FSJ crowd is making a conserted effort to get a group in Moab. The less frills the more fun it will be.

i agree

Well, there has been an Moab effort for a few years from the CFSJA bunch. It is finally starting to blossom into something to be reckoned I guess. Good to see the interest here! And I don't care what we call it right now as long as it happens...

On the front of the tee just the pix of two boobie lights (strategically placed, of course), and on the back "the slogan 2007".


Where's that pic of Tommy Chong with the Boobie Lights?????

"Moab FSJ Deployment"

something I think a lot of people here can relate to.

There is one month remaining in this poll. Anyone else care to vote?

I have a dream... that one day... little black boys and little white girls will refer to the Moab FSJ's as "full size boobie safari"

tick tock

Would be cool to get a couple more folks on board. I think we'll have an unprecedented crowd this year! Can't wait for warmer weather, camping, wheeling, as well as beer (Moab Brewery).

I thought it'd be an easy few fixes to the rig before the trip, now I'm faced with major engine work (engine swap at a minimum). Whee. I fully intend to make it but unless all goes well I may be seeking a passenger seat.

Speaking of weather, if you didn't know, Moab can get pretty chilly day or nite and often snows and/or rains in April, so prep accordingly. It can also get hot (duh, it's a desert) so just in case be sure to carry loads of water. There's a neat natural spring outside of town you can fill up at daily.

Me, my dog Poe, and my new FSJ will be there

Moab FSJ BOObie Tour 07


You know..if we call it that, I for one think a concerted effort to actually bring boobies should be made. My manboobs are a poor substite for actual, working, female mammaries, and I think even in remote Moab, they will notice.

Maybe it should be called the Moab FSJ ManBOObie Tour 07
