1st Annual UTV Rally
June 7-9, 2007
UTV Rally - Moab, Utah
Although it was early June, the
weather was more like March on the drive from Northern California to Moab.
It rained almost all the way from Reno to Salt Lake City, and the wind was
blowing 40+ mph the entire time. A few gusts nearly blew me off the road.
Once I arrived in Moab on Wednesday, the weather did not let up. It was
cold and windy. Just a few days before, it was 95 degrees. By Friday it
was back to being beautiful. Just reaffirms to me that you cannot depend on

The last few miles of the trip, I got to
ride with Wally from
RhinoWorld.net. Wally has his Rhino
set up for long distance trips with tires/wheels, seats, roll cage & bumper,
spare tires, a-arms and shock and GPS. I had a great time flying down from
the slick rock to the valley floor.
