    It was rocky. Once we got in, it was worth it. Epic place.

    Just a reminder, you need back country camping permits and even day use permits in Canyonlands.

    Utah Expedition

    Maybe we can link up on the trip. I’m heading out from a more southern route but will be out there the same time and will head back to the Bay Area the same Vegas route.

    Utah Expedition

    Heading out Apr 12, coming back around Apr 19. Looking for suggestions as well. It’s Easter Jeep Safari week, so lots of people will be around for sure.

    What piece of gear made the biggest improvement to your experience?

    RTT. Game changer. Done with ground tents and sleeping in my Jeep. Close second is my Dometic CFX-50W fridge.

    Are you prepared or are you rolling the dice? Be honest.

    Just a quick thanks for all the comments in this thread. Lots of insight, humor, and plain gut checks here. I made the video for the novice who was going on the three hour tour (Gilligan’s Island) and hadn’t considered what they were getting into. I’m glad to see experienced people contributing...

    Did you try the hand crank power setup to keep the lights on? Play darts? Read books?

    Thanks for your service. Be safe out there. These are difficult times brother. On the jack location, it was a compromise. I didn’t want it on the hood for the exact reason you mentioned. I’ve taken enough 11-80s and 11-80 fatals to know better. I put it low, so it would likely end up in the...

    We’ll see how far I get into the weeds with it. It should be a series broken into 8-10 min vids really. The skills portion alone could be it’s own series really. I could get too wrapped around the axle on that one, when many excellent people have already done similar content. As always, thanks...

    That was in regard to the five Cs of survivability, what should be in an emergency pack. That in itself was probably too detailed and over the top given the true target audience. I think I’ll redo the video to be very clear who my target audience is for that vid (the lesser trained, lessor...

    I saved a guy and his girfriend in Death Valley last year. They had a flat on a Tacoma and were stuck at the Racetrack. His jack was broken. He didn’t have the tool to lower the spare. No compressed air to pressurize his spare, which was flat. He was screwed, which meant so was his girl. I...

    Perhaps a five part series is in order. Good suggestion. This newbie video was more of a gut check for those that really never thought of things in the right way.

    He never ran the saw. He just helped by picking up the cut pieces and moving them out of the way.
