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.

You can be anything you want on the Internet,
it amazes me that so many choose stupid....

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.
Two wheels or four, its all good. :-)

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.
