    [VIDEO] Heartbreak Ridge - Big Bear

    Had a good time with some friends out at Big Bear this past week

    [VIDEO] Steel Pass/Dedeckera Canyon - Death Valley NP

    From my understanding Dedeckera Canyon (the beginning of this video) is part of Steel Pass as a whole, but I could be mistaken (and maybe one of you can clear that up). Regardless here's a video of it from a few weeks ago. Fun and beautiful trail with some minor technical areas in the beginning...

    Didn't do any off-roading this weekend, but got a little bored and wanted to get a shot in one of our local groves. Fires in the mountains have been making for some extremely orange sunsets lately:

    [VIDEO] Driving Into A Mine

    Interesting. Glad I decided to do it then if they're thinking about closing it. I thought it was still mined privately? Perhaps they want to close it off to people?

    It was a multi-day trip, and I honestly didn't learn about the mine until the last day after I had been off-roading in Nevada on the border of California. The inspector for the border crossing had talked with me about some trails and mentioned it. I usually take Tioga as it's closest for me and...

    Yup. It's pretty easy. The hardest part is probably the last 50 yards of road that lead up to the section of the mine you can drive in. Gets pretty rocky and could be hard to do without 4WD.

    It's here in California. It's between Lone Pine and Independence. Basically a few miles North of Mt. Whitney. It's called Reward, CA, but Manzanar might be more familiar if you know the area. The road to it starts directly across from the WWII internment camp. Reward Mine.

    [VIDEO] Driving Into A Mine

    I'll be doing a lift and some other stuff this winter, which is why I did this now. Apparently if you are under 77" you are okay, but beyond that you'll hit.

    [VIDEO] Driving Into A Mine

    For those of you who don't know, over on the Eastern Sierra, a few miles North of Mt. Whitney there is a small area known as Reward, which is home to the Reward Mine, which you can drive about 1/4 mile deep into. The mine opened in 1860 and produced gold, copper, lead, and silver up until it...

    Lone Pine to Tioga Pass Trip Advice

    I think I'm just going to buy a Smittybilt one that's portable. For $80 I can do that. Will keep my mind at ease too.

    Lone Pine to Tioga Pass Trip Advice

    How's that road sand wise? I heard some of the roads over in that direction are a bit iffy with sand and it's easy to get stuck without airing down. I didn't think that specific route was one, but figure I might as well ask.

    Lone Pine to Tioga Pass Trip Advice

    Looking to do a three to four day trip next week with the wife. We are in Fresno, but I'm hoping to drive down and across to Lone Pine, then go up towards Tioga Pass and head home through Yosemite National Park as I know that area very well. I have a few offroading books that talk about trails...

    [VIDEO] Buck Rock Black Diamond Trail

    Attempted this a few weeks back on my own, but being new with the 4Runner and coming from a CR-V I got a bit intimidated and waited until I could do it with some other people. They helped me in a few spots, but otherwise the stock Pro did great. This trail is in the Sequoia National Forest and...

    It's literally not even a road as far as being on a map. If you search this on Google you'll see where it's at: 38.324734, -119.694095 (it's the location where it does a little loop and appears to have a camper at it), but there's dispersed sites all over.

    It's honestly right off the 108 in an area for dispersed camping. Main road was probably 200ft above from where I took that. A lot of the trails up there are still closed so had to make do with what I had.
