Technically it’s an RV, if you live in it temporarily... right? Ah, well, whatever it is we’ve been putting in a lot of work on our truck since we drove to Canada over a weekend in January to cut the roof off and graft on a Campteq poptop.
Bear = Down
It was the coldest night of the trip, but that’s not a complaint. Living in the desert you need a certain quantity of cold winter nights to replenish your tolerance of the hot summer months.
Hey, let’s strap 60 pounds of water, food and whiskey to our bikes and ride up mountains. It will be fun!!
I just moved to town yesterday without knowing anyone, or having a house, or a job, lined up. Made the drive from Maine to here in ten days, in a 1952 pickup. If anyone is around for a beer it’d be great to meet you!

We’re headed out to the North Rim to hit up some “favorite” spots and a few new ones if all goes well. Hope you are able to go outside to somewhere to feel “independent.”
So I know this is more just Front Page-related that car-related, but I sort of fell into a bit of a wormhole on weather data in Phoenix, AZ after seeing the article on Jalopnik and I wanted to share some of what I found.
I want to eat pancakes and jump into a lake from the kitchen! So we did.

I’m taking the time to type this up to share as much as so I remember the lesson. I think the “overland” world is quite filled with list checkers. To each their own, but I think it’s good to…

Salt River and the White Mountain Apache tribe land to be exact.
I’m loving the trails around here. Just get on your bike and start pedaling!
Alright Oppo, I need to enlist your help for my first real vacation in three years. I’ve done something crazy but exciting: I’m going on a two week road trip through Arizona, Nevada and California with a female ‘friend’ whom I met through an app, in another city during my last visit - yes it’s exactly what you think.…
We’ve had the Messerchmitt 109 and 209 so we can proceed to the 309 today.
Saw this fella the other day. Had the full, over-sized ‘MERICA treatment basically covering the entire windshield. What is interesting, however, is the sticker on the back side.
Despite the hype - Rally in the USA is a grassroots regional affair, which occasionally sees some TV time, sometimes gets local press, and when conditions line up just perfectly - gets heli footage! Guidance Aviation happens to train helicopter pilots on future gigs for news, film, and TV. They also happen to have a…
