God bless our traveling home
And guide us where ever we roam
Help us find the roads we seek
And please don't let the plumbing leak...
Save us, please from engine trouble
And mechanics who charge us double
As we travel on our way
Bless us with sunshine every day
And while you're watching over all,
Could you let gas prices fall?
Lead us toward good food and friends
And when at last our journey ends
Grant our rolling home sweet rest
Until the next endurance test.

Oh man now I'm getting super jelly!!! Not only do I want to go and bummed I missed the last SUPER ride but I've also been looking at x3s myself!!!! @McCarthy77 if you go with the x3 and I don't even make it x3 or not I'M BLOCKING YOU 馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ!!
I'll be there as long as the border opens, you're welcome to take it for a rip if you don't have one by then. Though I will warn you, you'll be buying one moments later. They're that good.

We had riders from New York, Maryland, Texas, Wisconsin, Illinois, Colorado and Kentucky. All of us have a long commute, but you soon forget about the drive as soon as you get there!
Well, that's great and all, but i'm special [needs].

In all seriousness though, my vote would be for Utah. I see these incredible videos and pictures and really want to ride there!

Those pic are from our 9 days 663-mile trip last September in Utah near I-70 and MM 131 and I-70 and MM 90. We live in Denver but find that UT is much more friendly to ATV than CO. They do not have tree huggers.

@GDD Looks like Paiute!!!! I was out there a 3 years ago and stayed in Marysvale. Only hit the trail for 4 days which wasn't enough time!!!!! Then we went on to hit Moab for 4 days!!! Can't wait to go back!!!!

@McCarthy77 Thats very cool of you!!!!! The only way I see myself getting into one right now is if a dealer with a good rep I know of gets something in stock and I go and look at it and basically make a purchase right then and there. I'm apprehensive on ordering one right now. You are 100% correct though if I get in yours and drive it I will most definitely order one over the phone right then and there!!!!

You will not be the only one with a side-by-side. There are no worries about the width of the trail.

Yup i'll be bringing the X3. It's a good thing it's not until next summer, I just put a rock through the 3/8" UHMW skid plate, crossmember, and hit the trans hard enough to crack the case. Will be down for a while waiting for parts. That's what happens when you don't have quite enough ground clearance and you're doing 90+ mph...

I'm in Michigan damnit - let's not get too far west. Brandon's focking gas will be $10 bucks a gallon by next summer.
Kinda what I鈥檓 afraid of. 1500 miles for me. I do plan on going but not if gas is 6$ a gallon by then. My dodge is horrible on fuel. I鈥檓 trying to find a little smaller trailer to haul mine and hopefully put a Reese hitch on the Jeep to see if it will even pull the rzr. Gas went up another 25 cents over the weekend here. At this point we may all have to find someone with a Semi too carpool everyone out west.

I think it's going to be a lot of driving no matter where it is... There's no riding worthwhile really on the plains, so it kinda has to be somewhat west

What did you do with all that gas money you saved last year when the price got near $1.00. Or did you forget about that? You should have been putting that money in the bank for when the gas price once again went back up.

Well had I known ol joe was gonna win I鈥檇 of started a fuel savings fund as you said . But who woulda thought ? Not me anyways . It鈥檚 not that I can鈥檛 afford it. It鈥檚 that I don鈥檛 want to. I鈥檓 not going to spend that kinda money just to ride . Not when I have windrock park only 2hrs away. Not to mention thousands of acres locally within a couple of miles. But I have always wanted to ride out west .

...So if you don't want to go, don't go. This isn't an airport, there's no need to announce your departure.

Lol not sure what triggered y鈥檃ll. Me not liking gas prices has nothing to do with this turning personal. It鈥檚 better if we just leave it at that .

Ok guys so I鈥檓 going too apologize for derailing the post . Was never my intentions. I was just stating fuel prices will determine wether i get to go or not. So I may or may not get too. Thats almost a year away so we will see. . I hope too see you guys there . If not I hope everyone enjoys the trip . Now you can carry on with more talk about the trip without having to read through a bunch of useless arguments . That鈥檚 all from me. Thanks

LOL... You'll have to go now just for spite after those comments TN.
I've got hundreds of miles of some of the best mountain trails to be found anywhere right out my garage door. But there's nothing like riding in the BIG mountains. Its a long hard trip to get out there but I, and now apparently FPD, was hooked after the first trip several years ago. So much so that its become a regular summer pilgrimage for my crew to go hang out a couple weeks to ride in natural air conditioning with low humidity when its 100 degrees with 100% humidity around here and no fun at all to ride. 馃サ
I start bouncing around ideas about the next years trip and which other trails I may want to run or what I may do different while I'm still there lol. Not to mention you'll be right in the middle of some of the most awesome scenery to be found anywhere in the world.
