A weekend at home during an atypical environment in Moab – outdoorx4

Complaining about being stuck at home in Moab due to Utah’s “stay-at-home” order is akin to whining about only winning the regular lottery, not the Powerball. When spring rolls around, our weekends are typically spent anywhere but home. Given the current atypical environment, we’ve found ourselves venturing out into the eerily quiet desert landscape around Moab to camp, ride and hike. It’s given us a chance to rediscover why we moved here over fourteen years ago.

Moab’s tourist season, referred to by Moabites as “no-left-turn-season”, runs from roughly the middle of February to the end of November. Campgrounds, restaurants, grocery stores, trails, the river, even the tire shop, are jam packed every weekend and more often than not, during the week. Locals brave the crowds to ride, hike and float, but finding a remote campsite is almost impossible. With the town on lockdown, tumbleweeds lazily bouncing across Main Street, many locals are taking advantage of the respite to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for uncrowded spring recreation.

6/18 – After our seven week shutdown, on 5/11 we reopened the factory with a 100% employee retention rate. Upon our return we began COVID 19 best practice prevention, and we will continue to follow medical leadership guidance.

 

Since our return, the world has been increasingly focused on another challenge – social and race injustices and inequities. Though Four Wheel Campers is a very diverse company, and we firmly believe in the recent issues and voices, we now have a renewed responsibility to look inward. Over the next months and years we will check ourselves to make certain we are an optimistic force for social fairness and equality.

 

We want to thank our amazing employees for their spirit and teamwork, particularly during the challenges of 2020. Through it all they continue to be focused on making and refining the world’s best pop-up campers.

 

We also want to thank our “customers-in-waiting” for their unwavering patience.  It has been a journey.

 

We wish you all health and adventure!

Team Four Wheel Campers
