Moab, Utah is Mecca for wheelers. We were fortunate to spend two weeks in Moab earlier this month for Easter Jeep Safari. Thousands of four wheel drive enthusiasts in one location. The Red Rock 4Wheelers host a week long event that includes over 25 trails being run by folks from all over the world.
Our role at events like this is different than most, while we certainly qualify as enthusiasts, we are more about the business side of the industry. We provide content to the publications, whether print or internet based; we provide activities for the wheelers, whether as participants or spectators. In other words, we are the lucky ones. We get to bring lots of things to lots of people, and in return, we get to enjoy an awesome lifestyle.
Through our many connections, I found a job while we were in Moab. Just for a few days, because that’s all I had, but I went to work for Dottie at the T-shirt shop. I got to do things like inventories and stock placement, anything that had to do with organization was where I spent my time. All businesses fascinate me, each one brings something different to the table and to spend time in a successful enterprise is very satisfying. I didn’t know anything about the t-shirt business going in and the number one thing I learned was that of all the aspects that matter, number one is organization. With thousands of designs and products, if you can’t find it, you can’t sell it.
The T-shirt Shop runs on the pure determination and energy of its owner, it was a pleasure to spend time with someone so focused and enthusiastic about a business she has already spent 30 years in.
One last thing about Moab, I’m a big fan of good food and last night we had time to go to the Sunset Grill. It’s a cool little place up on the bluff with a great view. I had
Figured the food would be mediocre because the view was fantastic, but I was dead wrong. The food was as great as the view. Very relaxed atmosphere, awesome sunset and even better food. Next time include the Sunset Grill in your travels, you will be pleased
