  1. Along For The Ride: Vision X ADV Driving Lights

    Along For The Ride: Vision X ADV Driving Lights
    Vision X ADV Driving Lights I’ve made a living out of wandering around the country in my Jeep, hopping from one state to the next, in search of unique wilderness destinations that reside well off of the beaten path. Heretofore, I would only explore during the day, and I would make an extra effort to locate a campsite before dusk...

    Along For The Ride: The Struggles of SoCal (Part 28)
    The Struggles of SoCal I had traveled west, all the way across the United States, from as far east as New Jersey. Since it transpired over the course of many months, there were no particularly long or tiresome drives that caused me to end up in California. As such, it felt like I hadn’t really traveled that far at all...

    Along For The Ride: Embracing Desert Heat (Part 27)
    Embracing the Desert Heat Having thoroughly enjoyed my experience in southwestern Utah, I decided to start traveling toward southern California. As usual, I was prepared to take my time, explore, and seek out new experiences along the way. My GPS wanted me to drive through Las Vegas, which… I love Las Vegas. I had been there before, and it’s a...

    Along For The Ride: Living on the Edge (Part 26)
    Living on the Edge Following a spectacular experience at Zion National Park, I resumed wandering near the southwestern corner of Utah with the intention of experiencing more BLM land and remote backroads Beating the Heat According to my research, there were opportunities for boondocking in the BLM land to the south of Virgin, and to the east of Hurricane, Utah...

    Along For The Ride: Goose Gear Plate System for JKU
    Goose Gear Plate System for JKU “Do you have it in mahogany?” I asked jokingly, as I shared a campfire with Brian Fulton, owner of Goose Gear, a manufacturer of unique, high-quality storage solutions for overland vehicles. Brian replied, “In theory, we can use any kind of wood, but you could just go with the natural birch that we normally...

    Along For The Ride: A Walk In The Park (Part 25)
    A Walk in the Park Southern Utah is a hotbed for dramatic landscapes. After my stay in Kanab, I was ready to treat myself to one of America’s spectacular landscapes, Zion National Park . There was a bit of planning involved, as most National Parks seem to be biased toward tourists as opposed to wandering adventurers. Subsequently, I was prepared...

    Along For The Ride: A Breather in Southern Utah (Part 24)
    A Breather in Southern Utah My attempt to catch up on work in Page, Arizona, was a dismal failure. After getting sidetracked by a relaxing stay on the shores of Lake Powell, I set off once again - this time to Kanab, Utah, which was a short distance to the west. Into Kanab The town itself was infinitely more charming...
  8. Along For The Ride: Turn to Page (23)

    Along For The Ride: Turn to Page (23)
    Turn to Page After spending a few days exploring Kaibab National Forest and the North Rim of The Grand Canyon, it was my intention to push northward. I had been off the grid for too long, and I needed to catch up on some work, so I studied the map to find the nearest populated area. Seeking out Internet access...

    Along For The Ride: Journey to the North Rim (Part 22)
    Journey to the North Rim Following an extraordinary adventure in Sedona, it was my intention to visit another popular attraction that I had never seen in person - The Grand Canyon. From what I had learned through word-of-mouth, and through minimal research on the Internet, there are two primary Grand Canyon destinations: You have the South Rim, which is biased...
  10. Along For The Ride: A Caricature of Red Rocks - 2 (Part 21)

    A Caricature of Red Rocks - Part 2 Sedona, Arizona, despite being a major tourist attraction, immediately captured my heart with its dramatic, red rock landscape. As I mentioned back in part one of “A Caricature of Red Rocks”, the mesas and buttes are almost cartoon-like in their appearance. “Is this place for real?” I couldn’t help but wonder. While...
  11. Along For The Ride: A Caricature of Red Rocks in Arizona - 1 (Part 20)

    Along For The Ride: A Caricature of Red Rocks in Arizona - 1 (Part 20)
    A Caricature of Red Rocks in Arizona- Part 1 From eastern Arizona, I resumed traveling west, once again to Flagstaff to make a quick stop for a new pair of shoes at the local outfitter. I believe I must’ve configured my GPS to “avoid highways” as I enjoyed some spectacular scenery in rural Arizona that I hadn’t seen during my...

    Along For The Ride: The Man in the Lookout Tower (Part 19)
    The Man in the Lookout Tower For the second time, I traveled west from New Mexico into Arizona. This time, I wouldn’t be rushing to Flagstaff to attend an event. Instead, I would take the time to explore and to get to know Arizona a little better. My westward push from New Mexico lasted four hours, as I traveled into...
