Moab trip name

Since Moab is pretty off road specific and there isn't a specific "moab events" thread, I figured I would post this poll here.

What is the consensus for the name of the Moab trip?

My vote is for "FSJ Slickrock Incursion: Project Alpha" for the military black-ops non-specific undertones.

Oh, alright. If it has to be a word that starts with "in", let it be the Moab FSJ Invasion.

That is boring... doesn't leave any openings for t-shirts or bumperstickers! Everyone knows about the performance gains FSJ's get from cool offroad bumperstickers!

Everyone uses "Invasion" and it brings to mind massive quantities of troops running roughshod over third world terrain. Whereas the black-ops undertones of "Incursion" bring to mind highly trained specialized teams on a tactical mission and yet lack the sexual overtones of other black-ops keywords like "Insertion."

I voted for other. The cutie stuff doesn’t have much to do with wheeling. Invasion is already a familiar fsj event so why not continue to use it. Everyone could just continue to use “fsj invasion” and put a name in front of it. Moab FSJ Invasion 2007.

I’m going to try and make it.

I'll probably think of more later.

Edit: I'd like to edit my post to state that I won't be going, and probably won't be able to for at least 2 years as I go to college. I'm just giving name suggestions for a trip that I'd like to take some day.

Names for this edit: Big Jeeps, Slick Rock
MoabFSJ Safari, MoabFSJ Invasion, Either one.

haha, this reminds me of the time when i was a senior in high school. they wanted a name for our graduation, and i submitted "Keep on Truckin' ". everyone thought it was great and it actually won the vote. but the teachers axed the name b/c it wasnt classy enough. ended up using "we are the future" or something gay like that.

Ok... So this will be a long post. If you don't want to read it all press "page down" a couple of times.

In all fairness I would like the name of the trip to reflect the opinions of the INTERNATIONAL full size Jeep community represented on this site. I do not intend to violate the family values of this site (Krista... are you with me?) with the name "full size boobie" (which in all fairness is singular, not plural if I may point that out) IF it does in fact win out. I don't want this to be something that I choose by myself and impose on everyone that attends because I think it is amusing (which I honestly do think at this point). I think that it is only fair as I wouldn't want anyone else on here imposing on me in a similar manner.

I set the expiration of the poll for 90 days from the exact minute that I posted it so there is still plenty of time to hear everyones opinion. I felt that three months was appropriate since the MOAB trip is five months away! Since the poll feature is limited to 10 polling items and the ones used came from the Moab attendee thread, I would like to open it up to ideas beyond even those posted above. So here are the rules as I see them:
  1. ALL votes from IFSJA members with a JOIN date of December 2006 and beyond will NOT BE CONSIDERED A LEGITIMATE VOTE! NO EXCEPTIONS.
  2. Everyone with a JOIN date before DECEMBER 2006 gets one vote.
  3. If you want to vote for something that is not listed, vote "other" in the poll at the top and state in your EARLIEST post to this thread (edit you post if that is what is required) what you vote for. Please keep them within the rules outlined by your membership in this forum. If others like the name you propose... they will use them in their post.
  4. When the polling ends on February 28th, 2007 the votes will be tallied and the winning name is final. SIMPLE AS THAT.
Four rules... Funny thing is I thought there would be more when I started listing them. I feel this is the only way to perform this task democratically...

Think I am kidding? Here is the Moab attendees list as I have just edited it:

To all the nay-sayers... Steve, -joe and I am sure others... What life is worth living if you can't raise some eyebrows and stir the pot a little? Life is REALLY short... why not have some fun with it. I still love you guys even if you want to call it "Moab in a Full Size Jeep" or something like that.

To this end, I will say this, I am for the first time in my life considering putting a boobie grille on my beloved BRUTUS for the greater cause that is "MOAB Full Size Boobie Safari 2007." There I said it! First Flint comes out and admits that he loves rhino's but hates the publicity surrounding them and now I am pouring my GRILLE (instead of "real") feelings out to YOU... FSJ masses! HEAR ME NOW! No the rhino is not on sale! It will be put back on upon return from Moab.

On a sidenote, I posted this poll while I was at work, laughing as I left my "full time job" to go play pool on my pool league. A couple of beers and a few cut-shots later I return home to a couple of PM's and a decent "stir" of activity in both Moab threads... almost brings a tear to my eye! It took those couple of beers for me to notice that I miss-spelled "suggestions" when posting this poll and spelled it "suggustions!" DOH! It humors me that it took those beers to notice it... but the lack of beers to type it!

There I am done!

EDIT: If the mods will keep an eye on this thread and lock the thread down after the polling is done I would appreciate it.

Since we are getting all mushy and letting our feelings out... I am touched you would consider installing an egg crate on Brutus there Jason.

I am not going to vote. I have been going to Moab each Spring since 01. Some years I get in a Fall trip too. That first trip was to watch and take it in. The rest of my trips there with an FSJ have been to wheel the trails for fun. None of it was organized prior to going except to get the Jeep ready. If y'all wanna call it something, that is all good with this Jeepaholic.

Stepping up on the podium for a minute...
This gathering is not an event, is unofficial and has no leaders... Everyone who comes should know this.
Words taken from the Ouray Invasion home page apply here:


"Our FSJ gatherings are totally unorganized and unofficial, but that doesn't mean it has to be disorganized. No person on any trail ride can be designated "the leader", "the guide" or any name that gives the impression that they are in charge. All that show up are their own leader. A person can head up the trail and the others have the option to follow the Jeep in front of them. Each driver is responsible for their own actions and the occupants of their vehicles."


We nearly had a catastrophie on Corkscrew trail in Ouray this July. Even though most of us can laugh about it now, it could have easily been a much different outcome. We need to all realize that Jeeps break. Wheeling Moab can break a rig much faster than wheeling the mountains in Ouray, in my opinion. There is usually vehicle carnage of some kind on each trail ride I have been on in Moab. Everyone who comes needs to be sure they are prepared to meet the slickrock full on. If your Jeep doesn't have low range, good brakes and working Ebrake (to name a few), then stay on the pavement. I am not trying to scare anyone, just pointing out that it is important to come prepared. It is worth it to be hauling a few hundred pounds of spare parts too. I carry more with me to Moab than to Ouray.

Thanks.....back to the unscheduled madness of picking names...

If I go, I most likely wont be driving a rig, so don't count my vote.

although I think the No Low Range? No Ride With Us 'rule' should be implemented on all future Invasions.

Too true. Off-roading is not safe and thus responsibility is ALL on the driver to make the right choices. It requires self-reliance, some learning, and a rig in good shape with proper equipment for the task. That's what's most appealing about 4-wheeling to me.

There's some good checklists on CFSJA (http://www.cfsja.org/ under "On the Trail") and info on the web (Google is your friend) and in many books, such as 4-Wheeler's Bible.

I carry a whole different load-out for the Moab trip; all the engine parts I'd take to Ouray plus all kinds of spare drivetrain parts... and a stack of flashlights.

Personally, I could give a rats rear end what we call this gathering. All I care is that finally the FSJ crowd is making a conserted effort to get a group in Moab. The less frills the more fun it will be.

Side note: Prepare your rigs for hard abuse Moab has a nice way of ***** slapping you when you least exspect it. If you have ever wanted to wheel in Moab, this is a great time as it appear we will have a great mix of Moab vets. It is always nice your first time to have someone looking out for ya.

I agree with Paul, doesn't matter what we call it as long as it happens. I get first dibs in riding behind Paul!
