Spring Break 2017 : Moab Bound

Last President’s Week break, the family attempted a trip to St. George. Things went wrong for a myriad of reasons, all of which can be found here. This time, we were intent on not repeating our mistakes from last time, and the stars aligned to make for our first successful multi-night camping/bike trip with the baby. While Spring Break coincided with the Moab Small Penis Festival, aka Easter Jeep Safari, it proved to be a grand time for all. With the creation of all the recent bike specific trails, Jeep week actually is a great time to ride in Moab as the trails are empty (much like Sundance is a great time to ski Park City). In fact, I had a whole row on my Friday AM Porcupine shuttle to myself, which is a pleasant change from the typical knee-to-knee funk-fest that’s typical of the shuttle scene this time of year.
