    Default Off Roading Gama Goat

    Hey has anyone ever seen a gamma Goat or heard of a Gama Goat in Moab? I was thinking this weekend, I wonder how it would perform and what peoples reaction would be to it. But I have never heard of one down there before, and I cant find any pictures or stories.

    I don't have any Moab specific information but would think the Goat would be great out there.

    Yeah, I a not sure about that, I know lots of people take them to swampy environments, but I've never heard of one in a rocky environment. So yeah curios to see how it does, maybe I will take mine out there.

    Werner Meisterburg used to run around the desert areas in his... should be some vids around... i think i have one stashed somewhere of one wheeling with a couple of jeeps in rocky terrain as well.... To be honest, not sure i'd call them a rock crawler

    With the multi-directional articulation I'd think the Goat would be a great rock crawler within reasonable ground clearance of the pan. I've seen videos of it doing a 90 degree embankment with no problem and twisting through a narrow rock gully should be easily doable.

    That is a pretty sweet video, maybe when we get ours all finished we will go and do some capabilities testing on it. That could be fun and make a very interesting video.
