Description:

The legend of Moab continues!

We’re on a mission to save America!  It couldn‘t be more important than that.

We’ve received intelligence that you need to know about.

Via a leaked e-mail from a high ranking government official the Russians learned that Moab is a uranium hot spot.  Based on this information they sent a spy drone to survey the Moab area. Fortunately for us the drone crashed in the area.  Our job is to locate what remains of the drone. 

2017 - OPERATION MOAB 

This year’s event will be military mission themed.  Collectively we’ll be the ‘Moab Militia’.

Every day we’ll receive our ‘orders’ for the day.  Every group will have a mission based on scouting intelligence.  We’ll get our orders, our communication channels, a lat/long and some clues to help us locate metallic objects out on the trails.  Our hope is that once these items are collected we’ll be able to assemble them into the Russian spy drone.  Of course we’ll be having our usual great time out on the incredible trails that define the Moab area and make Moab the top of everyone’s bucket list.

We plan on running trails that the Hummer Club hasn’t run for some time – or maybe even ever.  Normally we have our pre-event in Durango, Colorado but this year we’re going to run the pre-event in Moab.  During the pre-event we’ll run the usual trails like Hell’s Revenge and Moab Rim.  Keeping with the theme of the event, we’ll call these ‘scouting days’.

 

UNCLE SAM WANTS YOU!

Come help save America!

And maybe put a big checkmark on your bucket list.

Note: You can attend the pre-event, the main event or both.  Whatever works for you.

Some Notable Information

·       All Hummer branded vehicles and Humvees are welcome. Your truck MUST be street legal to access the trails.

·       Driver’s meeting each morning at the departure point. Be fueled up and have a lunch packed each trail day. Also bring extra water and some extra snacks. We try to be back for dinner in town but please be prepared for a long day.

·       A CB for communication is required. 

·       Be certain that your truck is well maintained and that it is in good operational condition.

·       Be prepared for long trail days, you never know what might happen ‘out there’!

·       Unfortunately there’s an obstacle (Mirror Gulch) that just hates H2 tie-rods. You’ll only be allowed on this trail in an H2 if you carry at least one spare tie-rod. It’s difficult and there’s no bypass. It’s just the configuration of the rocks and the particular dimensions of an H2’s front end that make it difficult on H2 tie-rods.   We may not run Metal Masher so this is just a heads up.

·       Bring a spare tire.

 
Mechanical Support
As with all Hummer Club events, we will be self-supporting. Of course you will have the assistance of other members should anyone have any issues, but plan on being as prepared as possible with a few common spare parts (halfshafts, upper and lower ball joint, idler and pitman recommended) and required tools.
