    I just got my Tacoma in November. I am planning on visiting several remote towns this next summer. Jarbridge, NV and Yellow Pine, ID come to mind. Im interested in your remote trips. Specifically ones located in the north west.

    Remote towns/ghost towns. Like for example Jarbidge is 80+ miles away from any paved road.

    If you are talking about remote locations by truck.
    This is out by my favorite camping spot. Id say a few miles up but this was an old mining/ forest road blown out of the side of the mountains. We had to climb over trees, big piles of loose shale, rocks and huge plots of snow. Also it was maybe 2 am with only my truck. I had to stop and look because at one spot the road wasnt really there, when I got out all you could hear was a water fall maybe 200 feet down into shear blackness. The realization of what we were doing finally hit and we decided the safest bet was to go back down. I dont have any pics ( cause it was dark).
    Nordegg AB.

    If your talking just remote locations.
    Clyde river, NU
    sorry bout not having pics.

    Let's see, 30 minutes out a secondary road, then down a dirt road for about20 minutes then a 30 minute ride up and old logging road, chasing a moose part of the way, finally a careful 30 minute crawl up a dry creek bed. Then there was still the 20 minute walk to the remote lake but a couple nice lake trout made up for it. Of course up here in the north you are already pretty remote before you start.

    JarbIdge, it is a town though, and it's only like 45 miles to Wild Horse. Haven't made it up there yet, but been meaning to. Pretty much all my adventures are like that. Glad I live in NV and born in WY.

    Have you been to the Idaho/Nevada line? That is very remote country. My first "expo" trip was actually to Atlanta, ID in my friends reg cab Tacoma. Learned a good lesson from that trip. Tacoma bench seats fucking suck!

    That's where I saw the biggest Grizzly I've ever seen ... head was amazing.
