    What is the craziest recovery situation you made it through (or didn't make it through)?

    I’ll admit I was on the fence too. Most of the time I don’t need it. The few times I have it was the only suitable option and I was so glad I had it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I have gotten stuck a few times. One of the scariest was just a few months ago. A relatively tame part of a trail turned really bad when we almost slid off the side of the road down 10 ft. Luckily a stump and the winch made it possible for me to get out.

    Exploring Utah One Weekend at a Time

    Two weeks ago I loaded up the Jeep and headed south towards Utah's San Rafael Swell. It is one of my favorite places to explore and this time I had the privilege of getting a tour from Christian Probasco the author of Backroads of Utah's San Rafael Swell. I met him and several new friends for a...

    Exploring Utah One Weekend at a Time

    I have kind of let this thread die a bit but I am vowing to revive it and update it with my trips. I have several in the backlog that I will work on trip reports for. However, I wanted to post about my most recent trip into the mountains. Each year right around Thanksgiving most of the canyon...

    Storage Boxes For Your Jeep

    I have been looking into storage solutions for my JKU. Ive considered a built in system like Goose Gear however it's really not in the budget. Additionally I like the flexibility of being able to easily remove gear. So I have been considering using some storage bins. I have looked at a bunch...

    Pony Express Trail In Utah's West Desert

    It only took 10 days for Pony Express Trail riders to get mail from Missouri to California which is incredible especially since it took me almost two to cover just the West Desert portion in Utah. I loaded up my Jeep with my 3 year old son and our 7 year old Labrador and headed out to Utah's...

    48 Hours Along The Spine Of Utah

    Skyline Drive is often called the spine of Utah. The road runs roughly 100 miles from Tucker just off of Highway 6 to I70 in central Utah. Overall the due to the high elevation of the road it’s only possible to run the entire trip in the deep summer or fall after the snow starts to melt. I have...

    Wrangler top choice?

    I’ve had a soft top in the past and now have a hard top. I loved being able to take the top down in a matter of minutes. Increased sound and weather protection as well as rear cargo access are what drove me to the hard top on round 2. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think I am doing this wrong

    Now that it has been almost a year since your original post I am curious to hear what you ended up doing. We camp regularly with our two boys (3 and 6) and are about to have our third. I think there has been some pretty good advice given already, the only thing I would add is to evaluate what...
