It has definitely been nice to be able to get a little bit further away from the beaten track a couple of times. Not to mention being able to move fast when the roads get REALLY rough and bumpy, and you need to find a place to stay before it gets dark. However, I've also learned that you can do a trip like this in almost any vehicle if you plan accordingly and avoid the worst roads. We meet people all the time in old 2wd trucks, and newer, not modified 4x4s.I have spent all morning reading of your adventures and this is awsome!
I've learned alot too, thinking that rock crawling was just for specialized machines, I know now there is a practicle side and real purpose for raising a vehicle and having much larger wheels and tires. Your pictures in the States showed it is necessary to get through tuff terrain. I've just never been in areas like that! AWSOME!
This must be just the tid bits to get all of interested for your new book! LOL
Great thread, be careful and take care. :Wow1:
