SMB Leading Trail Trips

Just thot I'd show you folks a couple of short videos of me leading a trip on one of the many emigrant trails used by the pioneers in the 1840's to 1860's.

This one is just 39 seconds of travel on a playa as part of a total trip.


This one is about 6 min. put together by a friend.


Lots of fun out there. The people that go on these trips are suitably impressed with the Sportsmobile.

Great infomercial. Is there a full length version?

In my experience with our QuadVan, we have to travel slower than other vehicles due to its ride characteristics, ie a choppy ride. A Toyota would be my choice for more comfortable back country exploring. Live & learn.

Nicely done. I got to be on part of the Oregon trail two years ago in Idaho. Very interesting to think about what the pioneers went through.
