Welcome to Moab: One of my favorite places to camp, hike, sightsee and go 4 wheeling. It is a wonderful spot. While I am a Jeep guy, I find all 4x4s equally accepted out on the trail. One of my fun days there we took the "rental car" SUV out on a fairly easy trail... Folks laughed and called us crazy out on the trail, but we had a blast, met some new folks and were rewarded with a fun hike and great view. Love your roof top tent... I am lazy and often just sleep on the ground on a hiking pad. Nights are indeed quiet and magical out there. Nice write up! (FYI - I am also a Michigan resident)

Regrets? Hmm, maybe in process. I am a Jeep engineer, and my version of a "Classic" was a CJ 7 Have decided to sell my CJ 7 after 21 years of building and fun times with the kids. Reality is I built it to rock crawl, but rarely do that.. and my kids are no longer home. I used it mostly for eve rides to get ice cream with the family. 17k miles in 20 years... But now have FIVE Jeeps to enjoy.. so, one has to go. Why? I am building my 77 Cherokee Chief, and resto mods are expensive. The CJs are now worth a ton of money, and I will use the funds to update and paint the Chief for my wife and I to drive Rt 66 when I retire. Will I miss it? Sure. Will I regret it? A bit, but PRACTICAL choices have to be made. And I did have 21 years of enjoyment and use out of the CJ. Can't really complain about that. PS - I hate BMWs... lol. BUT - I do enjoy your writing very much. Good reading as usual.
