3 Step Hidaway. I was a tag along to this destination from irvine Ca , Vegas, grand cn, AZ, Utah 5 days 1,200 miles great views and a worm friendly welcome from Scott and julie at 3 step hidaway. What a fun ride and if your on the fence on this destination let me say START PLANNING! This is what riding and meeting new friends are all about. It was great and i can bet it will only get better.
There were about 10 people there when we rode up and had a great time talking eating and drinking in the saloon.

Scott (DingWeed), thanks so much for putting on your Open House, and providing such a great venue for the ADV rider crowd. I'll be back! It was fun to visit with everyone and I always learn a lot from folks like Mark and Doc. Doc is a real maestro on his Garmin Montana, and the chance to look over Mark's new KTM 690 was a treat. 'Really has me thinking......

See ya in a few weeks!

Ken

I just got back from my blitzkrieg tour of Utah and Arizona.
1600 miles in three days of riding...
There is so much empty space in that part of the country.

But rolling into the Three Step Hideaway was like returning home to a pleasant timeless paradise. It's rustic, but luxurious all at the same time.
Scott has got himself a little piece of heaven and is an amazing host.

I took many pictures but here are a few to whet your appetite.

The Ranch


A slice of History


The infamous Dr. Rock all weathered from all the miles.


It's the Wild West for sure.
You still gotta harness up your steed so it doesn't wander off.


But everyone has fun there.
You can see the child-like joy in peoples faces.


The stoic Mobius riders.


And good times around the campfire.


The Three Step Hideaway...
You owe it to yourself to visit there.

Thumb 3 Step Hideaway

Yes sireee...the Hideaway has been found and it is not the start of a "12 Step Rehab" unless you are trying to give up TV and cell phones along with the tourist crush and inflated prices of Moab.
Julie and Scott have developed a little slice of off-road moto heaven. The setting and the "setup" are spectacular. Our entertainment came in the form of Dr. Rock, LDF, Big Dog's guitar, Heli-John's star gazing, Black Hat Barry, Edward the Scorpion "Quiestor", and the Big Bertha Brown BBQ Queen...The early May weather was perfect and I'm guessing the ADV / TAT crew have a new must hit destination.
Thanks to our stellar hosts Scott (Dingweed) and Julie (The Jedi) and a cast of new found friends it was the perfect start to the riding season.
Thanks Dr. Rock for the morning mini tour of the area to dust up the WR.
Lyn and I spent the next two days hiking not biking but it was a great trip. Thanks to all.

Glad to be following along for another Mobius. The 3-Step Hideaway looks like a fantastic place, I will definitely have to stay a night or two there if I'm ever riding through the area.

Good one! The yellow one has had a TrailTech Vapor since I've owned it. I can't remember what the alleged mileage was, maybe 3-4K? And Old Blueberry has had a TrailTech Striker since the last two trips. Her original speedo broke in the crash. It had ~8K when we bought it, and we've put an average of 2K per trip X 13 trips = 26,000 (hard) miles, so total is somewhere around 35K?

Newsflash: LDF has upgraded to 6 speeds and fuel injection. New Blueberry will be introduced in M14. Old Blueberry has gone to a good home. That bike has some history, starting with Rod Curie's TAT run with the band of gypsies.
