    Land Rovers Traversing Utah

    Kind of old news, but I did a blog writeup of AZLRO Utah Traverse last May. Folks on this forum might be interested to see Land Rovers (and owners) having fun in Utah. -> Utah Traverse A few action shots:

    Utah Traverse 2020

    I wonder where that trail goes? This lunch spot would be a great campsite. Let’s drop a GPS point in case we ever return. We’ve been looking at those mountains for the past 3 days; let’s explore there some day. Overland adventure can be addictive that way. The more you get out, the more you...

    Kofa New Year's Celebration 2020 - Shakedown With Our New Dog

    Have you ever thought about where you'd like to be buried or have your ashes spread? Not to be lugubrious (such a fun word for a dour subject), but the thought occurred to me when considering the attraction of a place like Kofa National Wilderness Preserve. Kofa is a big swath of desert...

    Grand Canyon Recreation

    It wasn't about grief. That's the last thing she would have wanted. Rather, a few weeks after my Mom's death, I wanted to just get away from household obligations and give myself the opportunity to think and reflect. She would have been delighted to know that I found this peace, quiet and...

    Spot Gen 2 - Lowered Price $35

    Second Gen Spot for sale. $45 $40 $35 (pickup in Phoenix area) or $50 $45 $40 shipped. Based on previous sales, this seems on the cheap end. Works fine, and it has served me well for the past few years. I bought the protective cover with clip, and it has always lived in that, so it's in good...

    Viva Baja! First Timer's Baja Impressions

    Don’t go! The drug cartels are having territory grabs and wars. Mexico has the highest per capita murder rate. Did you read last week about the tourists killed in a bar shootout? You’ll step on a manta ray or be attacked by killer squids. Etc. Etc. On the other hand, friends who recently went...

    The Old Girl Got Us There and Back Again: LR3 Overlanding in New Mexico and Colorado

    I was reminiscing about our late summer trip and thought it might be nice to post here, so fellow Land Rover owners, or those considering the platform, can see the vehicle out where it belongs, possibly in different part of the world. This was a 9 day trip (2 days highway travel and 7 days of...

    A Rio Good Trip - Checking in on the Rio Grande From New Mexico to Colorado

    My wife and I had a great overland trip to northern New Mexico and southern Colorado a couple weeks ago. It was a different approach for us. Usually I plan gpx tracks in advance, but this was a quick, Plan B kind of trip (wildfires changed our plans for northern California), and we took the...

    LR3's Recent Utah Trip

    I usually like to link to LR3-based trip blogs from this forum. For some reason, it slipped my mind this time. Our trusty steed took us on a fun adventure to the Grand Staircase Escalante area a couple months ago. The LR3 is a great platform for overlanding. Some photos to prove it happened...

    Grand Times in Grand Staircase Escalante Area

    A few years ago, I packed into a small, hot, crowded room in Kanab, Utah, to enter a lottery for hiking permits for the Wave. The Wave is a unique, highly photogenic landscape that has become so popular that the Bureau of Land Management restricts access to 20 people per day (10 via online...

    Land Rover in its Element

    Hi all, just posted a Trip Report about our recent trip to Big Bend. Thought you might be interested to see the LR3 in its element. The vehicle did great offroad. And the fold-flat rear, large enough for a double mattress, adds flexibility for camping. The air suspension hasn't let me down so...

    Rio Grande Big Bend Exploration

    The sun rose over Leyva Canyon but hadn’t yet hit our campsite. The December chill was still in the air, so we carried our chairs and coffee mugs to a nearby hill in the sun. Enjoying the hot coffee on a cold morning, Laurie mimicked the line from MASH, and I played along: “Listen, do you hear...

    The Horse That Brought Us There - 2 Week LR3 Adventure in Northern Rockies

    I posted a trip report in the "Adventure Reports" section of this site a while ago, but it occurred to me that it might be good to post a link here too. It's great to see the Land Rover in it's preferred environment. The vehicle did great. The LR3 is a great platform for this kind of trip. ->...

    Two Week Northern Rockies Adventure: Backroads, Eclipse, Anniversary and More

    The idea started percolating last winter when a friend mentioned to my wife and I that 2017 would be a special year for all 3 of us. His birthday and our anniversary are on the same day, and he informed that this year we’d have a total eclipse to help celebrate. Hmmm our closest viewing would be...

    From the Mouths of Babes: "I Want to Camp"

    We left a warm, dry room at Hampton Inn and Suites in Page, AZ, around noon on a Friday, planning to drive an hour or so to Alstrom Point to camp for the weekend and explore the environs. We were eager to see the incredible vistas over Lake Powell, set up a base camp for the weekend, and explore...

    Thinking of replacing all rubber in rear suspension on LR3

    I think my recent trip to Death Valley and the awful washboard roads gave my rear-end suspension a quick trip from bad to worse. I'm getting clunks and occasional hops and such after the trip. The vehicle has 152,000+ miles and all the rear control arms and bushings have never been changed. I'm...

    First Death Valley Trip: 4 Cold, Wet, Snowy, Wonderfully Awesome Days

    We rang in the New Year with a great, 4 day expedition trip to Death Valley. This was our first trip there, and we were very impressed with all the areas of scenic, historical and off-road interest. New Year’s is a time for reflection and consideration, and the trip provided this opportunity...

    LR3 on the Rebelle Rally

    My wife recently completed the inaugural, women’s-only Rebelle Rally in our LR3. The event covered over 1,200 miles, from Lake Tahoe to the dunes outside of San Diego. I’m so proud of her. Over a grueling 7 days, traversing challenging offroad trails, she made it through with grace, steadfast...

    Cooper Discover: Sinagua Ruins to New Age Sedona, With Maximum Solitude

    I was thinking of Huck Finn as we prepared for a Memorial Weekend getaway. We function pretty well within civilization, but sometimes you just have to bust out for the wilderness. My wife, Laurie, and I were overdue for a little adventure. She had spent most of the previous week in the hospital...
