All of these folks are keeping it real.
We made it to Portland after six days of camping in California and Oregon. With half of our trip compete, we’ve gone from the beaches of Big Sur, to redwood forests, up to the banks of the Umpqua! River.
Remember the Mahindra Genio?
Anyone else following Jake? I saw his Overland Expo vid first and started watching through his channel.. it’s pretty entertaining.
I want to eat pancakes and jump into a lake from the kitchen! So we did.
Exploring the forests of Western Colorado. Note to self: bring as much bug spray as you can carry.
Well, it is a bit difficult to know where to start really... This book was an inspiration for me.

I was supposed to leave Sunday. I was actually hoping to leave Saturday. Neither were the case.
We woke up fairly early and headed down from the mountains and back into the high desert. It was warmer down here, but still so nice compared to home. First order of business, FIND WATER!

Until our 2017 road/camping trip. Two kids, two parents, one dog, 3,700 miles and a two-door Jeep Wrangler.
The great public lands war rages on, and it seems as if the Bears Ears will be a decisive battleground. Secretary of the interior Ryan Zinke has recently been out to the monument as part of his Presidential commission to evaluation this and 27 other monuments over 100,000 acres. He’s issued a preliminary…
Our FJ40. We drove a few hours out into the desert to see if the truck we’d heard about was worth it or not...
That should read “1" but I had to drop out of today’s outing due to fatigue.
New Mexico is the forgotten state. Let’s keep what you see ahead between us. I want to retire or at least become a hermit there.
I’m still working on the write up, but Kelsey went and got a video all put together.
