Durango-Moab 2018 – Back to Basics! This year we return with a “pre-event” in Durango Colorado prior to the main event in Moab Utah. We wanted to focus on a fun filled, Hummer powered, and low-cost off-road event so are cutting back a bit on costs outside of what you keep telling us you want: fun wheeling! There will be FIVE DAYS of Moab awesomeness, preceeded by THREE DAYS of Durango area awesomeness. Come to one, come to both!

The pre-event starts out in Durango Colorado where we will spend three days running Northern New Mexico trails like Grim Reaper and Secret! If you haven’t run either of these trails,  you have missed out on some of the best Hummer wheeling there is. Your truck will do things you didn’t know it could! If you have been on these trails, then you probably can’t wait to get to back to them and have another go! We will also offer self-guided trails to breathtaking high-alpine passes, ghost towns and historic trails near Ouray & Telluride, Colorado. SEPARATE $25 REGISTRATION REQUIRED for the Durango pre-event

There will then be a one-day transition to allow time to drive between Durango and Moab. If you haven’t seen Mesa Verde National Park – it’s on the way and well worth a visit!

In Moab we start with an event dinner and trail sign up (each group is responsible for their dinner bill).  This will be Sunday September 23rd.  There will be no specific event hotel this year as there are several places to choose from – everything from camping sites to hotel suites with hot-tubs – whatever fits your budget!

There will be a drivers meeting prior to each trail event. Location TBA.

  • Monday September 24th - Moab Trail Day
  • Tuesday September 25th - Moab Trail Day
  • Wednesday September 26th -Moab Trail Day
  • Thursday September 27th - Moab Trail Day
  • Friday September 28th - Moab Trail Day - followed by a close-out event dinner (each group responsible for their dinner costs).

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.

Here’s the 411 for the Pre-event

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.

The club will be hosting a two day event, one day and AOAA and one day at Rausch Creek ORV, PA.  Both parks are within a short driving distance of each other and are within easy driving distance of many cities near the East Coast.  We are having a trail guide that knows these trails well and will lead us to maximize our fun time on the trails.

Rausch Creek Off Road Park is devoted to providing a fun place for off-road enthusiasts to go four-wheeling.  The park consists of almost 3,000 acres of easy, intermediate, and difficult trails – featuring rocks, bowls, hills, club friendly trails, and free, on-site camping. A great park for Hummers.  For more information on the trails and the park Rausch ORV Website 

Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area is a 6500 acre facility with both full size and UTV trails shared trails.
The park has two main areas, the Western and Eastern reserves both with their own unique trail systems.  For over 10 years, folks who go off road are familiar with the Rausch Creek "Blue", "Black" and "Red" trails that they offer.  However after wheeling on the AOAA's blue, black and red trails, drivers are humbled and quickly realize that the blues and blacks at AOAA are on a whole other level.  AOAA Website
