Here’s the list of national monuments that will be reviewed by the Trump administration for revocation.
A friend of mine wants me to help him find a 4x4 for $4k or under. This is just for going out camping, as his Corolla can’t get to some of the places we go. He has a woman and a dog that need to fit in it with him. He was thinking Xterra or an older Jeep, but friends have had bad experiences with old Xterras, and…
Not so much “what’s the best choice” but of all the ways you’ve slept in the backcountry, which one gives you the best sleep.
Firstly, I didn’t realize until just now that Lockhart basin, the Abajo Mountains, and 2 national monuments are encapsulated in the bears ears monument. I wasn’t aware that I have visited the bears ears. How about that. On a sadder note:
The Australian automotive market is perhaps one of the most diverse markets anywhere on the planet. Despite its tiny size (we only bought 1.178 million vehicles last year but even that was an all time Oz record) we seem to have every manufacturer and every brand in on the playing field.
The objective here is to inform some others who are new to or who may be considering the purchase of a 1990’s cruiser. If you’re not hunting for one, the objective is for some time-killing entertainment- so enjoy. Like so many other things, this isn’t a be-all end-all but rather a collection of things I’ve had to do.…
After making it down from the high country, the Vermillion Cliffs guided us through the Navajo Reservation to the final leg of our journey. Turning off the highway onto an “improved” 4wd road, the real adventure had finally begun. What the BLM means by improved, is that every couple years they send out a road grader…
Some of you, like me, might have a hard time finding places or trails to off road on. I thought perhaps we could all get together and place trails on this map to get an idea of where to off road.
Wait no...Not that, the other thing. Pure misguided emotional shlock. Im still trying to figure out bears ears and where I stand but I can tell you this tips me more in favor of keeping it than anything. Sorry curly sue, I guess your dreams will have to die.
After camping out for a night on the northern slopes of the San Francisco Peaks we started making our way farther north. There were almost no cars on the road, so I was able to proceed at a nice leisurely pace. I had to work the engine pretty hard climbing into Flagstaff, so it was nice to give her a break for a…
A month after our first aborted Mojave Road trip, we traveled back. Our goal this time was just to finish up the portion of the Mojave Road that we missed out on last time so, instead of starting at the Colorado River, we entered through Kelbaker Road so that we could fit the trip within a normal weekend.
After reading Hammerhead’s Lockhart Basin adventures, I got the itch for that good ‘ol Uranium filled red rock. I wanted to take a trip where we could really get away from people. Hammerhead mentioned that the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument might be fairly empty, so last weekend I bought a map of the…
It’s happening. Trip report is coming (probably in a month since I have a backlog). Just a preview for now. Be warned, it’s crowded out there.
We went Easter Bunny hunting in the Arizona desert. Just got back and we are bushed. This was a very surreal trip with long drives, hikes, canyons, weird rocks, deer, mountains and rivers. In the end we managed to spot that waskly wabbit. More to come.
One of many good reads on this site.
If you didn’t already know, Team XO is building a 200 series. In addition to the 2 brand new 4Runners and their brand new Tacoma. I was watching this video and it hit me: Im checked out.
As detailed in my previous posts, some friends and I got drunk and decided to do a Top Gear special style road trip. We flew to SoCal, bought cars for less than $2,500(ish) and then drove the Pacific coast ~2,000 miles to Seattle and uhh… let’s say sold the cars. Yes, we totally sold them. Stop asking questions!
