    Good stuff to know. This is my first time and biggest wheeling trip. Mostly we do short day trips were we are gone for a day and back in our cozzy beds by night. I do plan to take things easy, althought i know a group of people also means peer pressure. This trip is for fun, not serious bash the living hell out of my blazer.

    I didn't experience any peer pressure at Blazer Bash. I broke my truck all on my own.:haha:

    Here's a little bit of wisdom from someone who doesn't have the best built rig or any of that mumbo jumbo........................

    Only wheel what you feel comfortable with. I've wheeled with some of these old boys in the past and never once did they try push anyone into attempting something that I didn't feel comfortable with. A lot of us realize that the motto "you break it, you buy it" hits home in this sport. Just keep your wheeling antics sane and sensible. You might feel bad cause some of the guys will bring rigs that can go straight up, tilt over on the side, some may roll and you will be watching instead of driving. Don't let it get to you. Don't let your antics overextended the ability of your pocket book.

    In the end, it's all about the camaraderie, meeting some of the finest folks on this planet and having fun.

    Well put:waytogo: Moab for me has always been a good people no pressure experience. The coolest thing is, is that there are sooo many different rigs of all levels and no matter what you will get good advise from fellow wheelers because nobody wants to see anybody have a bad time.

    Just don't listen to anything that I say and you should come out all right. :D

    Remember everything in Moab is meant to be fun. Breaking things might be fun, fixing them always sucks.

    I am the first one to start given sh!t but I always try to take the driver and vehicle into account prior to what I say. My crap is always joking and in no way to be taken seriously.

    Take all of this advise and then add to it you have to drive the thing home as well.

    :haha: Id shoot myself driving the blazer 1083 miles. If i had a tow rig that would be a different situation. Right now im not sure if my blazer is even going to be ready for BB06 cause of money restraints.
