    I've become a little obsessed with the Nevada hills and mountains since I got my TX. If I'm not out of town I spend the weekends hitting the hills, going shooting with my dog. I guess it's safe to say I made a great choice trading in my SUV for a Taco. :) I drag race street bikes on the side, and after I was involved in a hit and run, driver leaving me behind and bike (newly painted) on the side of the road, I decided to trade for this truck, it's given me a lot of memories in 4 months ! Here are some pictures I've snagged while out and about. Also there are a few pictures of my Taco covered in ice haha But I am a picture man-slut when it comes to my Taco, so feel free to post any pictures you want of yours.

    Welcome, from a little ways east on 80. Nice truck. There's a Reno thread on here, and a 775 thread. You should check them out.

    Hahaha........yeah, us "Carson Guys".......However, this happened in Baja.

    Blew a tire after hitting something in the road, went off into the dirt median, hit some rocks, rolled. Landed on the wheels and drove out of the median to the side of the road. Baja fire guys and Red Cross (paramedics) were right there, great response.

    HDI Seguros Mexican Insurance, purchased through Bajabound: htttp://www.bajabound.com/
    was excellent and adjusters response was within 30 minutes.

    Three of us had some scrapes, minor cuts from glass and bruises. seat belts worked as advertised.

    Hope they total it..........I want another Tacoma!!!!

    Damn, glad you're alright. I've had my close calls already but doesn't stop me. I just returned from a Reno trip. Wasn't able to get out much but I need to find new mountains to climb!

    For exploring, I had some luck maybe 15 miles east of Fernley on the old mining roads. Saw a wild horse out and about there. It was hot as shit, and if I wasn't in a group and my truck died, I would have been concerned about death. Got caught in a torrential downpour and then made it to an indian reservation before losing one of my rear mudflaps.
    Good luck and keep exploring, but remember to get some self recovery gear.

    You should check out the Santa Rosas, if you haven't already. Another place that I absolutely love is the Pine Forest range up by Denio. The Bilk Creek range was cool too until this last summer when it all burnt down.

    Humboldts are close! 30 minutes maybe, star canyon is bad ass, and theres a whole bunch of other cool canyons all along the front and rear, theres one out of oreana with a pond at the top, but you'll scrape the shit out of your truck with branches. Star peak from the front is fun too, see how far you can make it before the snow is too deep.

    If you take grass valley road out of winnemucca you can take it all the way to mckinney pass, from there you can take fencemaker or kitten springs road to Bolivia (ghost town) and at bolivia I hear it's possible in more built rigs to take the canyon out to jersey valley. Theres lots of cool areas to explore around Jersey valley and east towards the Ormat plant, theres even a hot springs to check out.

    If you take Jungo road west, theres a bunch of cool shit out there too if you split off south before you hit the black rock.

    I'm with you man! I'm usually out exploring on a dual sport motorcycle, but it's also fun in the truck with the dogs and the wife.
    We just got back from four days in western Nevada to Death Valley over New Years holiday. Single digit temps overnight, but so awesome![​IMG]

    Maxamillion- Thank you, I'll get to exploring that area!

    Yeah weather has kicked my ass here, it's awesome driving in snow but kind of limits the areas I can get to. Since I have no one to explore with out here, I ride solo.... Not good If I get stuck!

    A little far from you, but the Black Rock Desert area is a pretty neat area to explore. Don't go there during Burning man, though.

    Take I-80 east to Golconda, then the road to Midas. If it's still open, good eats (dinner) at the Midas saloon.

    Jungo road to Rye Patch. Grass Valley road to Dixie Valley, then on to Fallon or Lovelock.............plenty of cool areas to explore

    Yeah I was suggested the Jungo to Rye Patch, also heard about Grass Valley to Lovelock. I just need people who enjoy trails and driving as much as I do. I just need to meet the right people Haha I went to Reno for oil change, and re-alignment and saw a new Tacoma in the showroom floor, Charcoal Grey with some black XD wheels and a leveling kit. After seeing how it sit, I think I might just stick to a leveling kit instead of full lift, and some bigger tires. I beat the crap out of the ones I have by Thomas Canyon so I need meatier tires.
