If you were looking for a little bit of a mid day distraction you’ve landed in the right place. We were in a similar situation but decided life is short and potential death by bus could be around the corner. So we got to thinking that there's no time like the present and chose to check out of the office and head out. We packed up by moonlight, drank more coffee than we’re proud of, and set our sights on the closest thing to Mars - Moab, Utah.
If you’ve never been we highly recommend adding it to the bucket list. It's one of the most majestic places we’ve ever experienced. (and we’re not ones to use the word majestic on any regular day)
When you take off you sometimes pack one too many things, or forget a few key items that you really wish you brought. Typically brining a hundred things you don't need and forget the essentials like sunscreen or an extra jacket. To make things easy we put together a few C&S items we wish we had on the trip.
If you've looked at a calendar or a map at any time while looking at this series you might want to check out that packing list we mentioned earlier.
As you may have noticed, Moab is a remarkable place that we absolutely recommend experiencing once in your lifetime. Also - don't be like us and forget to bring water. That's a big one.
