well here's a summery.
i drove all night friday and found joel 7:00am saterday. since i don't need to sleep we went and did the top of the world trail. it was really fun with a couple real challenging spots. we got to the top and there was a youn couple in a cherokee. he had just proposed so we took their pics for them and hung out. a view so amazing i won't even try to explain.
on the way down i realized one of my lift blocks had fallen out. so i limped it back down the trail where it intersected with the kokappelli (sp. i know....). joel went off the long way while i headed back to town to fix my car and was to hook up with joel at the brewpub that night.
in the meantime joel messes his car up bigtime (i'll let him explain that) in the middle of nowhere. undrivable.
i get much needed sleep in town (i had been up for 40 hours straight)
sunday morning joel finds me in town we fix my car and head out to his abandoned rig on the kokopelli and i tow him 14 miles back to pavement where triple A will tow him for free back to junction. 7pm sunday we part ways, i head home.
all in all i had a great time. we didn't do nearly as much trail riding as we hoped to, oh well.but the trails there are amazing, a weekend in moab is a blessed thing. we will be back soon i am sure. plus i had no idea my car could be used to tow so effectivey.
joel, drop a line so i know you arrived safely, thanks for the good times.
and a p.s.: we were both VERY happy with how our cars performed on the trails.
