    Visited family in Wyoming and went offroading after a storm went through. Wet clay is the worst. Screenshot_20200909-211128.jpg

    Rio Grande gorge. By Taos New Mexico. Quite the epic place. Up the cliffs from Manby hot springs. Camped out on the edge of the cliff with my love and my dog. My morning download view was pretty epic too!

    We did this trail on our first day of a 10 days 3,000 miles roadtrip to the Pacific Northwest. Cool easy trail with some cool area for pictures.

    Just added toolbox and roof-rack to haul my fishing boat 100's of miles into the backwoods every week. Goodrich K02s, Bilstein 5100 front and back, no lift.

    Yup clay is the worse. Mud, sand, etc generally ok. Wet clay is brutal. Cakes your tires until the clay contacts the wheel wells and have to get out and try to scrape it off each tire. Zero traction on some of that. Had my old 1986 F150 in that, on the flat with no hill or angle and just sliding sideways, almost into a lake and that at 3mph on a road that bordered the lake. Glad to get out of that spot.

    Oh man- it was fun. Clay caked up the treads on my duratracs and I just spun tires. The snow gave better traction. The truck didn't stand a chance. Shortly after this picture I slid down the clay with wheels locked.

    Interesting note about crawl control- I found it very useful reversing down a wet clay slope. When not using crawl control the truck wanted to slide laterally/fishtail but with CC active, I could back straight down the hill and avoid a ditch. CC didn't help me climb back up at all though.

    North Carolina section of the Transamerica trail.
    Mostly hard pack, but a few light technical sections. Even brought the bike for a little two-wheel off-roading. 20200905_073548.jpg 20200906_092017.jpg

    My first little off pavement jaunt with the brand new truck. Rides offroad SO MUCH BETTER than my sport.
    With the smoke, dust, and desert, it almost looks camouflaged.

    My wife and I decided to take a nice 2700 mile road trip to Sequoia and Yosemite. Unfortunately we were smoked out by the Creek Fire but tried to make the best of it. Definitely wish conditions would have been better though, especially in Yosemite.

    This was the best view we had the entire trip.

    Hey, if you're not used to the smoke from forest fires, get that ash off your truck asap. It will stain the paint if left on there...Been there, done that. Made the hood on my old magnetic gray truck look awful after a couple years. I was out of town for a week when it got ashed on, and by then it had put these stains in little blotches all over the hood and roof.

    Finally made it out to the Calico area and hit the Phillips OHV Loop and was not disappointed. I finally got to check off one of my bucket list items by hitting the Kramer Arch, in both directions.

    The fires are so bad in California, Oregon, Washington, that all of British Columbia is covered in that heavy smoke now. This year we have been mostly spared bad fires (thank god...), but the smoke is so thick from the fires drifting north, that your trip to Yosemite looks like dream air! Here, visibility is less than 1/4 mile today. Anything past that is a gray wall. It is actually so bad the past few days it is the same as when 1.3 million acres burned in BC the summer of 2018. Not complaining though, the smoke we can take, we are not burning up like down south. What a disaster, and so much suffering down in your parts. In 2018, my brothers entire town of 40,000 was evacuated for 3 weeks, along with many other communities the same.

    Here is my city yesterday at noon and today is worse. I was planning on getting out for some remote lake fishing this week, but the forecast is more of the same smoke this week. Maybe might be a breather at some mountain lakes over 6,000 foot. Won't be clear but might be a little better. Stay safe down there!

    By the way, nice truck and setup, looks great. I am looking at a rooftop tent for next spring. Might be a trick as I pack my 10 foot aluminum boat on every fishing trip on my Thule racks. Might have to use my 12 ft inflatable on overnight trips.
