My Garage:
  • 2011 Nissan Xterra (1.5" lift, 32" tires)
Started 4 wheeling with a '71 IH TravelAll. It would pass everything on the highway but a gas station and corn field. There wasn't a hill that it couldn't climb, and it was stock. 392 engine with the Chrysler 727 transmission. Once it died, I got a Scout. Then a Scout Traveler. The next vehicle was a Ford F250 Supercab that pulled the camper and also 4 wheeled. It wasn't like the Cornbinders though, it was too long. Years pass and now it is the Xterra. Only changes I've made to it was to replace the shocks with Pro4 shocks when the originals wore out, and had the springs re-arched and another leaf added. Tires are Firestone Destination AT (P rated). Next set of tires will be LT rated.

Castle Rock Gulch (07/26/2021)
Was out this way exploring and geocaching. Road is in great condition.
Bassam Park (07/26/2021)
Nice and smooth, not showing any after effects of rain.
Aspen Ridge (07/26/2021)
Ran from north to south. First part is nice and smooth, then comes the part through the trees and it gets a bit bumpy, some places you may need to choose your line wisely, Finally comes the gravel section leading down to Salida. This will make a great fall trip when the aspens have turned, and we intend to return for that.
Matukat Road (aka Goose Creek Road) (07/21/2021)
Out having a fun adventure today on several "overlanding" roads and trails. After turning off the highway out of Deckers we aired down and that really helped with the washboarding up to Cheeseman. Overall the road is in very good condition and the whole trip is easy, any car can do it. Lots of scenery, things that before the fire would have been hidden by trees are now visible.
Confirmed Road (07/21/2021)
Came off Beryllium and ran to WPt 3. Although not hard, there are some "interesting" obstacles to make you question your choice. Most are just narrow spots, but throw in a hard turn and a tree.... well you get the idea. There are bypasses for these but what fun is taking one of those unless you are driving a long wheelbase vehicle.
Sixteener Road (07/21/2021)
After doing Goose Creek, we came down Tarryall road a bit to go towards Hwy 24. Initially there are some heavily rutted sections, but once pas those the trail is reasonably easy. Point in fact, about 10 years ago I drove this with a Dodge Caravan.... I wouldn't do that now though. LOL
Beryllium Road (07/21/2021)
Came in from Sixteener Road at WPt 6 Easy peasy, fun little trail for an outing. Bailed out at WPt 10 to take a portion of Confirmed Road out to the highway.
