I just booked my first offroading trip to Moab! April 23 - 30. Rented a 4 bedroom home a few miles out of town with plenty of trailer parking room. Have 3 other couples going along, none of us have ever been before. I'm really looking forward to it, should be a blast!
Have already ordered a guide book and maps, debating on whether we should look into doing a guided tour or two. Any opinions on that?

Awesome! Moab is the ultimate proving ground. If you've never tested the capabilities of your machine (or yourself, for that matter!) this place will show you what it, and you, can do.

I wouldn't worry about a guided trip, personally. Every trail and access point are so well marked you'll be fine, and with the group you described you'll have plenty of spotters and back up for the tough spots.

That would be great. Some folks we met on out last trip a few weeks ago are probably going also. Some of the trails can be challenging so it defiantly is good to have a group. You will be absolutely blown away by Moab. Where are you coming from?

Moab is an absolute blast. Been going out there at least once a year for the last 12 years. Actually met Charles Wells at the campground in October.
No need for a guided tour. If you have the Charles Wells book and a couple of good maps (I prefer the Latitude 40 maps Moab East and Moab West Moab Archives - Latitude 40° maps ) and a sense of adventure, that's all you need. I would be more than happy to give you some trail ideas, as well as some input as to what trails to combine for a good days riding.
4-5 machines is about all you really want in a group. With more than that it can take all day to get one trail done. When you stop at each obstacle and wait for a large group to get through it, it can take forever.

We are most likely going to head there April 28-May 1st.
I might have to see if we can't get out there during this time frame. It doesn't look like there are any big annual Moab events that week, so it would be a good time to go. It would be awesome to meet and ride with some of you guys. The KRX absolutely kicks ass out on the slick rock!

Those are indeed the books and maps I have on order. Should be here in a couple days.
