Easter Jeep Safari 2015 - Discount Tire Recap



We had a blast at this year's Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah! We met some great people on the trails, participated in a trail restoration project with Tread Lightly! and sponsored an EJS first, Rancho Rocks Moab concert.

TRAIL RESTORATION PROJECT (3/31/15)





Our group of guys attended a trail restoration project with Tread Lightly! on Sevenmile Rim Trail. This particular project is part of the Restoration for Recreation program, which is Tread Lightly's! signature initiative to protect and maintain recreation opportunities by repairing roads, trails and bridges, improving maps and signage and access points, and revitalizing dilapidated recreational facilities. There were approximately 50 people on hand who graciously gave up a day of wheeling to construct and place buck and rail fencing around Wipe Out Hill. It was a lot of hard work, but knowing we played a roll in keeping a popular trail open made the effort well worth it.

METAL MASHER SPONSORED TRAIL RUN (4/1/15)





One of the trail rides we sponsored this year took place on Metal Masher and was led by local club, Red Rock 4-Wheelers. We met up with Editor, Josh Burns, of Off-Road.com and put him behind the wheel of RESQ1 to tackle a few obstacles. Josh is an avid off-road enthusiast, much like we are, so we enjoyed swapping trail stories. He's been attending EJS events for a number of years and likes hitting the Moab trails on two wheels with his KLX. In fortuitous fashion, we also met Dave Adams while taking a break for lunch. Dave is part of the Red Rock 4-Wheelers Club and has a knack for picking lines. He has a form of muscular dystrophy and was successful in raising the necessary funds for an Action Trackchair. It was an awesome run with a great group of people and we topped the day off by conquering Widow Maker in our very own RESQ1.

RANCHO ROCKS MOAB CONCERT (4/2/15)





We ended our week of fun by sponsoring the first annual Rancho Rocks Moab concert. Every year Moab residents open their town to the tens of thousands of people who attend EJS, so we jumped at the opportunity to give something back to them. Rancho and Dynomax served up hot dogs and hamburgers while we handled dessert, Blue Bunny ice cream! One hundred percent of the sales from the $1 single serve cones and $5 meals went towards the Grand County High School Athletics program. Auctions for products such as MB11 Wheels, BFG Tires, Dynomax Exhaust Systems and Complete Rancho Suspension Systems, took place throughout the night. One hundred percent of the auction proceeds went to the GCHS Athletics program as well. In all, the concert raised nearly $6,000!

Needless to say, Easter Jeep Safari rocks and we can't wait for next year's event!

But hey; How about that for a supporting member?!?! I mean, THAT'S VERY COOL that a member of this forum is creating those sorts of events for us!

Thank You!

Thank you for your comments, maytag. We had a blast again this year.

If you've never wheeled Moab I highly recommend adding it to your bucket list. Gorgeous scenery and awesome people!
