Need to Wheel, Any takers/other suggestions?

I need to get out of the home state. Everything is closed here due to the fires. The wife and I were planning to go on vacation this week, were thinking since we can't camp or wheel in Montana, we could go somewhere else, specifically maybe the Rubicon. Never been there, heard a lot about it. Anybody interested in meeting us sometime between August 25th and the 27th for a trip through? How about any information about what to do, where to go in, what to expect, etc. We are planning to tow the cj, and would like to make a successful trip out of it.

If the Rubicon is where you are headed - drop on over to the Pirate's of the Rubicon http://www/Pirate4x4.com BBS... Those guys are great, and would probably be more than happy to lead you through [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Well, if you don't want to drive so far SW Colorado, NW New Mexico, and Moab could be a great froadin' trip. The aspens are probably starting to change colors, the high country is pretty much snow free, and the temperatures in Moab are starting to become bearable again. It's a helluva lot closer and less crowded than the Rubicon too.

Snowtow:

I would consider Moab, but I don't want to cook. My plan is to leave in two days. If Moab is not to hot this time of year fine, but I believe temp. are still way in excess of 100 degrees. You got to understand, heat is tough to take for a northern guy like this. (My sprinkler hoses had ice in them sunday night.) Anything over 85 begins to be excessive. I would like to meat anyone with any ideas however.

Please let me know, Moab is closer than Rubicon.

Well Farmington is just 2 1/2 hrs. south of Moab, higher up in elevation. The area where the Rock Garden is is about 6000 ft.,
and the San Juans don't have snow yet. Just a suggestion form the 4 Wheeling Center of the Universe!

Brad, and snowtow, great suggestions, but logistics don't seem to be good right now. I only have 5 days total, to travel, wheel, and travel home, your suggestions, as well as my idea of the Rubicon are just not possible. Maybe next year, but next year, hopefully I can get my fill here just going close to home. (may not be many trees left, or green trees.)

Thanks.

Just got word that our ski home is being threatened by fire. I think I will take the time to go up and make sure it is secure, and maybe do a little other recreateing.
