Well, that’s a snappy title...
Thought I would share as it was a pretty god damn awesome experience. Can’t remember her name but she was on the hunt for a den to have her cubs in. We pretty much followed at a respectable distance bundu bashing (no road/trail what so ever) so we could get a location on her den for their records.
Sure, we’ll go with that...
No big adventure. Just glad the pinion seal works, the window seals are okay and the suspension works well. Time to re-torque everything tonight.
This is a great story about the kind of people you meet on the trails.
Tim will understand.
What I’ve been doing every night this week.
So, I’m walking the fearsome hounds around the block (it’s a short walk) and I notice a Prado in a drive. Nothing special about that they are everywhere here, this had a roof rack, awning and few bits and bobs on it, typical Australian family camping wagon. Anyway, it got me thinking about what a great rig the Prado…
I sold the Titan. It wasn’t that I didn’t like it, it was great. But it wasn’t being used. At the beginning of the summer we moved from Virginia to Pensacola and life has been pretty busy since then. My BMW R1150GS Adventure is typically my daily commute mobile and in Florida it should be pretty easy to do it year…
Sunset view from my hike today. Kept it short as I had the dog with me and there have been some big coyotes in the area. Old Brutus could take them, but we need more coyotes in Phoenix.
In May of 2017, my friends and I embarked on an overland cheap car challenge road trip. The pitch was simple: fly to Sacramento, buy three cars for less than $3k each, and then take them through California, Utah, Arizona, and Nevada using overland routes as much as possible. Whoever survives, wins.
We went Mountain Biking in Sedona last weekend and my friend Mike brought his old Sportsmobile. It’s rusty and has some issues, but how can you not love it!? #whatdepartureangle.
My Coopers were going to need replacing within the next year, so I took advantage of some pretty awesome saving to pick up some new rubber.
The Washington Post got a hold of the outline that Zinke will likely use here in Utah on Monday to modify the two big bad national monuments in Utah:
It was about time we went car camping in the 911 again. It’d been 2 years since our 3500 honeymoon roadtrip.
Just to balance out the Troopy goodness I have been torturing Timothy with, here is an abject lesson in when youthful desire for adventure, gets coupled with some inexperience and the unstoppable forces of nature.
Here is the ride report from my friend Mike. He is a crazy person. A very crazy stud of a person. The ups and downs that occur in 1,134.4 miles may surprise you. Enjoy!
This is a great story from one of my favorite Jalopnik writers, David Tracy, about what happens when the romance of dumping the 9 to 5 in search of adventure sours and you’re reminded that it costs a lot to live so free.
It’s been quiet over here in the Soft Roaders world. We took a few people to our off-road training grounds here in North Texas recently and while some of the group was on a trail run we put together a short video. The Fast and the Furious (2001) fans will definitely remember a scene similar to this...
Well, it took us a while, but it’s done!
