Dirt and dust was my middle name in this trip. EVERYTHING was coated in layers of that beautiful red Utah fine powder dust, including myself I spent at least three hours cleaning up when back home. Fortunately I have a 10 HP rotary compressor at the shop. A LOT of dust had entered the vehicle and I was not happy about it. Today I added more rubber weatherstripping all around the rear door and the lid to the baja box. Dust was coming in from underneath into the cabinet below the sink, the potty cabinet, and behind the drawer, coating it's contents. THAT will be fun to track down and patch.

Nice pictures Jeffery! There's a place SW of Moab called Cottonwood Canyon. That's a nice place to camp. I've been there several times.

There's another place about 100 miles west of Moab called Sawsey's Cabin. Another nice place to hang out.

In both places I've seen lots of pictographs(mostly in Cottonwood), Big Horn Sheep, Wild Mustangs, Jack Rabbits, Ravins, other birds of prey & many more interesting critters. If you are ever there again, you might want to check those spots out. As a matter-of-fact, if you are interested, check out these pictures from last year at Sawsey's on my website. They are listed under 2007 Moose.

Very cool pics. An SMB with a dirtbike on the back is the ideal way to explore new areas. The pics give me sellers remorse about my XR. I had a mint xr250 dualsport that I sold to "make room" for another dirtbike. That was a mistake.

Jeffrey, I noticed that you have a Baja Box on the rear bumper. What size is that blue container in the left side basket portion?

I just replaced my Baja Basket with a Baja Box, and was disappointed that my 20 gallon metal WEDCO water container would not fit in the basket portion.

Great pics, as always!

Ed, 20 gals?!?! No Way, That spot is made for the common 5 gal water jug, which is what my blue thing is.

Thanks! You can always get another XR250. They always seem to turn up when you least expect it.

That was my buddies XR600. He's a big guy & makes the 600 look small. The van is one that he bought from Honda when he worked for them many years ago. It was 2WD but several years ago, he converted it to a 4X4. Like all of us, it's a work in progress.

Errrr. sorry. Not 20 gallons a container. But 20 gallons in four containers total in a Baja Basket.

Neither my 5 gallon metal WEDCO or my 5 gallon plastic Reliance water containers fit in the left side of my new Baja Box.

That's also adding 200 pounds to the weight the swingout must bear. I'd be careful.
