TLDR carry on. I'll enjoy my own zones until they become Moabs.

Preview of the 3-Day Moab Rocks XC MTB Stage Race
I'll be that guy to admit that I don't get what it is about Moab. The first time I went there c. 2014 the shuttling service told me I couldn't ride the whole enchilada because it rained the day before. Was a little bit disappointed I drove 18hrs from squamish to be told I couldn't ride a trail because of some rain. I quietly thought to myself; "a fellow rider would slap the shit out of me if I said that about a trail I built (albeit, on the coast where there is different geology and lower per capita volume of traffic)." The whole enchilada gets so much traffic and is a destination trail but I was so bummed that I couldn't ride it on account of some rain the day before. Maybe it's the local geology, maybe it's the challenge of a builder providing adequate drainage on such a long trail. Moab is a great place to ride on scenic rocks and take some nice photos for "bookface.net" or "bikepink.web", but what I personally enjoy is the pleasure of riding trails composed of duff/loam where there are features that can be shaped by the builder. I'd rather just bring my climbing gear next time I go to Moab.

What the Heck is a Down-Country Bike? - Opinion
@SenorMartillo: Yeah people's perceptions are funny. Really good to go demo a bike or something when you get a chance (especially when free at events) I never would have gone short travel if I didn't try one. Seems like lots of folks are still stuck in the 160/160 27.5 'trail-duro' phase... I was in that rut for a long time.

What the Heck is a Down-Country Bike? - Opinion
I had a realization about short travel when I demoed yeti 4.5 and 5.5 back to back. Pumping through the trail and pedaling efficiency were so much better on the 4.5. Couldn't feel anything on the 5.5 "monster truck" has it's place on steep chunder but if you can only afford 1 bike I personally opt for shorter travel. On a 2017 process 111 now with fork raised to 140mm and it feels perfect. Ridden everything from dirt merchant to schleyer to xc on it. Hoons all around.
