We headed in the 109f heat to Tucson to pickup our leg of a cross country FJ40 baton relay and do some mountain biking. Riveting stuff here folks, RIVETING!! (Oh yah, I am bad with money... so I bought a drone...)
*Yes, that spelling is a sad, Doug-prompted joke.
So it’s with mixed emotions that I report I just purchased a 2013 GX 460. The Lexus will, of course, be the replacement for the Forester. De-modding the Forester will start next week to prepare it for eventual sale.
My last two posts round this were labelled Expedition Planning, safe to say we are past that point. Now it is just ‘doing’.
Part 4 encompasses 2 days as we head from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, through Flagstaff, AZ and on to camp in Sedona and then over Broken Arrow trail and home. Also, I can’t describe how exciting it was to receive our first Patron this morning. Kevin, you know who you are. $1 never seemed so hard earned. I’ve…
So this might be a term that my friend and I used as kids to describe bashing around in the woods on our bikes, but it kind of applies here: it’s not about going out and trying that new trail everyone’s talking about. It’s about taking your bike on that trail no one is talking about. In this case, taking our bikes on…
Window shopping for overland travel.
It’s been awhile (Middle of May) since I had been out on the dirt. That’s two whole months!!! [Note: This event took place July 22nd]
I think I’m officially starting to feel sorry for myself...
The next installment in the series based on a couple of weeks in and around the East Kimberley area in North West Australia. The first episode can be found by following the link below.
A little video of me blabbing about things stuff.
As you can tell, I’m a fan of these.
Finally getting around to writing up a little post about a small trip I took a few weeks ago with the Northeast Mitsubishi 4x4 Club. We spent 3 days in Vermont traveling & exploring the large network of Class 4 roads there. Many of which were routes from last years Vermont Overland Rally that some of us attended.
So I got promoted and have a bit of extra money to spend. My new position provides a company car, so gone is the 4x4 DD. I just need a hoopdie for weekend and extended trips. I’ve already hid an extra $1,000 for tires in my dream journal, so take that expense out of the equation.
Sweating, drinking and jamming. Jamming and drinking to keep from thinking about sweating. That describes my youth pretty well. Well, everything except for the drinking. My most memorable nights were spent moshing and sweating with a handful of kids in whatever venue would take on the risk of hosting hardcore…

Life in the city - it can wear on you.
“What am I complaining about? Those who buy the new Discovery for its sleek sophistication will far outnumber those who turn away because it no longer feels authentically Land Rover. Indeed, they’ll probably be glad. The company has made the right decision and I acknowledge that being even slightly sad that puts me in…
