2008 Touareg and Friends Moab Moonlight Challenge May 18-20



Come out with your friends and join us in Moab May 18-May 20!


Several regular Touareg offroaders are gathering for an extended weekend May 18-May 20 to challenge the famous slickrock trails in legendary Moab Utah. We expect to catch arrival dinner May 17. Surreal landscape and near full moon conditions encourage us to take a dark run on Sunday or Monday night.

Moab is a prime outdoor playground located along the Colorado River 30 miles south of Interstate 70 in eastern Utah. Nestled between Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park, Moab offers a wide range of outdoor activities including bicycling, river rafting, and offroad. Some of the most infamous offroad trails and obstacles are locating in the Moab area; it is the site of the weeklong Jeep Easter Jamboree. Slickrock, essentially petrofied sand-dunes and named for its effect on wagon wheels, offers extreme traction when dry, allowing your vehicle to make climbs not possible in other conditions.

Our proposed trail list includes "Fins and Things", "Hells Revenge", "Tower Arch", and other trails the group will select daily. While Touaregs have an open invite, you may invite friends with other offroad vehicles including Jeeps, FJ’s, Land Rovers, 4Runners, and Hummers. Its a great chance to compare notes and show off the Touareg. Some of your friends may want to challenge Hell’s Gate or Hot Tub; I think we can offer a decent cheering section.



The Moab trails we are challenging are intermediate to advanced on the offroad rating spectrum. Uphill and downhill slopes of 30 to 40 degrees, with slopes up to 60 degrees will happen and happen early. Prior offroad experience and comfort in offroad settings is highly encouraged.

Adventurers should have a properly outfitted vehicle with full-size spare. High clearance is preferred. If you have run the Colorado Ouray Rally, you should be ready to elevate your skills to the challenge.





You should be prepared for possible damage to your vehicle. In a gathering last October, both steel suspension Touaregs suffered mild rocker panel dents and scuffs; dings to undercarriage supports and suspension; and brush pinstripes. Far worse damage is possible and as an offroader, you should already know the inherent risks you take upon yourself journeying through rugged mountainous terrain.

We’re prepared to have a blast!! Looking forward to having you out on the trails with us!

I regret to inform that the Hammock family will not be able to attend this year. It's just too hard with two young ones.

Looks like we have a fine core group of Touareg off-roaders coming out.

Hotel Reservation update - Moab is filling up fast with most of the brand name chains sold out. There is still local lodging available. Just picked up a room at the Moab Valley Inn.

I have an email list of those coming out - if you are thinking of joining us, let us know by replying here, by email, or by PM.

Awesome photos will follow!!!

Guys, as much as I want to be out there, a newborn at home is making it impossible for me to get out of town for a recreational getaway.

I will be in that part of the country in October, so if anyone is up to a day in the desert then I'd be in!
