    Run. Run while you can.

    I’ve no idea why people do this stuff.

    Bar M Chuckwagon is one of those hokey bus-tour meccas in an imitation western “town” where forking over $30+ apiece per adult ($16.00 per smaller buckaroo) buys you some nasty-looking chow slopped onto a tin plate, a corny dinner show, a silly shoot-out (folks, that stuff is a lotta Hollywood hooey) and fake Boot Hill. Trust me, there are places in Moab to get a decent meal for less than three ten-spots, and you don’t have to put up with any yodeling. If you need any more convincing….

    Mmmm, nummy. Not.

    I’ll give "Hole n' The Rock” one point for its bit of historic, roadside funkiness but subtract ten for providing as many (mostly useless) opportunities as possible to part you from your cash, not to mention vandalizing the gorgeous, red-rock landscape with its enormous painted-on advertising: not the current owners' fault but horrifying all the same.

    If you want to go on the popular trails in a Jeep, be sure to ask your rental company if they have any prohibited trials.

    I wasn't able to take my Canyonlands Jeep rental on Hell's Revenge of about 10 other trails that were on their prohibited list.

    Next time I will rent from Jim at Outlaw Tours and get a real Jeepers experience.

    Unique Suggestions: If you do rent a "sightseeing" Jeep, try some of the recommended trails backwards from the way they show in the guide books. It makes them a little harder and more interesting. You may even have to shift into 4wd.

    If you use a company to guide...

    If you use a company to guide either your cycling or rafting trips, make sure that they are a reputable company. There are some where your insurance on some stretches of river and road are not fully covered. Check your insurance before any trip!
