I'm coming down for sure, pulling a trailer no less, but I have no intention of letting Chris talk me into anything.

He took his van around the KOH Qualifying loop the other day. You could follow him.

Kudos on the trip and the big brass ones. You two got off the couch and climbed a mountain. Or two.

And maybe dismantled one as well.

Thank you.
^^^ all that and well said!

made the mistake of starting to read this report on the way to a movie a few days ago. finally home and was able to finish the read...wow! showed my wife and she teared up about the rabbit. she's a softy especially loved the canyon where the road was paved. was very scenic. both of us are super impressed with the report. we both loved the pix and the commentary was great. thanks for the link ramsey!

Probably not, but who knows? I'm sure there is untapped potential in my van.

Very impressive report! I drove the Devils River crossing in spring 2014 and it wasn't so bad. On some spots of that trail, VivaLaVida also had quite rough conditions but not that bad. Congrat for your drive though even without a winch Chris!

That was a great read. I did the Burr Trail up to the Henry Mts solo back in 2001. It was a blast and what began my obsession with getting a 4x4 camper van. I've had the pleasure to camp and hunt that area several times over the years and live the dream of doing it in my Sportsmobile. Awesome.
