    Thanks for the info! I'd like to explore that country some time.

    Just did Broken Arrow Trail in Sedona

    That's beautiful! How long is that trail? Could it be stretched into a 2- or 3-day drive?

    Gas can question for long term users

    It’s flimsy without a can in it; but once your full can is loaded in, the holder is solid.

    Utah Traverse

    Look into visiting Hole In The Rock on the north/west side of the Colorado River, out of Escalante, UT. There’s epic pioneer history there, including the remains of a cantilevered dugway built to get wagons down to the river.

    How To: Off-Road Trail Tire Repair

    I'd noticed a slow leak that I had checked out at the tire shop, but they found nothing. I dealt with it for months, filling the tire every 10 days, or so. My brother, his son, and I decided to take off across Utah's West Desert in search of the Topaz Mountain Japanese Internment Site near...

    Decked for Tacoma, Colorado and other mid-sizes trucks

    I have these in my Tacoma without a topper. I've never had water get into the drawers or the ammo cans. I've run in rain, snow, and car washes, and have never had any sign of water infiltration. I did 3 days on the White Rim Trail last month and got a little bit of dust in them, but nothing...

    Yeah. We’re going to take it in 2 days and 2 nights.

    Spring Break to MOAB

    Great trip! I’ll be on the White Rim Trail in about 10 days, and can’t wait! Thanks for sharing!

    Distance between home and the start of a trail

    My trails all start at the end of my driveway... It’s ALL an adventure!

    Utah Traverse

    I agree. I’ve not done the Utah Traverse, but if you take the dirt roads, it can be a 5-day trip in itself. Stay mostly on pavement, with a side trip or two, and you could get across in 2 easy days and have 3 days in Colorado.

    Decked for Tacoma, Colorado and other mid-sizes trucks

    I found a way to modify the ammo can lids so they can’t be removed by passers by. With the tailgate up, the retaining rod can’t be removed.

    What is the last thing you bought and plan to buy?

    The last thing I bought - chains for all 4 tires - are the last thing I used. I self-recovered on an icy set of switchbacks in Canyonlands today.

    Recovery Bag Recommendations

    I just finished the White Rim Trail in Canyonlands. My tire chains saved the day. I got stuck halfway up the north slope of Murphy Hogback on a sheet of ice. Going forward was impossible, and I had no steering control to back down. So I pulled out my chains, put them on, and self-recovered...

    Solar Power-interesting read

    Your idea of just camping until the battery’s dead is a great one, too. Then divide your desired off-grid trip by that number and install that many batteries or be able to charge them that many times.

    Solar Power-interesting read

    Thanks for sharing. That put solar in much clearer terms than I’ve ever heard. And it made me think about how much I really need for my overlanding style.
