Some pics from Moab

Nothing special. Just figured I'd share some photos and video of some off road action

Nice! Good to see guys using their NAS trucks. What trails did you hit?

Let's see some more of that 1190. Is that a Highline TJ I spy in the background?

It's a 1290 actually

I have video but Tapatalk won't let me upload that so need to wait on that. I did Hells Revenge, Golden Spike, Cliff Hanger and Moab Rim.

I didn't do Area BFE simple because i hear it's mainly for hardcore wheeling. Our group is into challenging trails but we don't want to beat the trucks. Also, My defender, what ever reason is exceptionally tippy and from what i've seen of BFE trails, I would most certainly end up on my roof!

As for restaurants.. this was my first trip with my son. He's my first and he's 1.5 years old so we didn't take him to restaurants. He did go on Fins N Things for 30 minutes though! He sat on my lap and we took the pickup truck so that he had AC. He loved it. Side Note.. Tundra's are pretty solid off road. Long story short, I cooked and we ordered in BBQ. Everytime I visit Moab, that town seems more and more developed!

Forgive the bad video and the hand close ups. Spotting was the priority . This is me struggling on an obstacle on cliffhanger. https://youtu.be/e3LrpL8RwXg

I'm usually against the whole trailer queen thing but if your going to Moab it just makes sense. I've limped enough land rovers home over the years to know I don't need to do it for 946 miles back home. Plus my tundra going 80 mph towing the defender get better gas mileage than the defender trying to go 70 empty.

Correct, with what you have experienced, it makes total sense to trailer the D90 on longer trips with the Tundra. As rare and collectible your D90 is, its a good way not to put extra miles on it. Very Luckily a few friends of mine have Tundras, I use them all the Time for Towing. Its a great truck, rarely breaks down if you maintain it.

Keep OffRoading.

That's great! I was only asking about Area BFE because I missed it when I went to Moab out of ignorance and was curious about the wheeling.

As far as food, i was really disappointed with the dining options in Moab. I was hoping they would have improved things in the past few years. Pretty much the best food was available at the grocery store and cooking myself
