Currently a mild-offroader and brOverlander in a lifted 4runner. Easy to moderate trails primarily front-range of Colorado and Moab -- for now. I have been wheelin' my entire 26-year life, from riding in my Dad's Jeep as a toddler to driving a built '89 Ranger (Dana 44 front, full-floater 9 inch rear, 5.13's, dual locked, dual tcases, custom exo cage, bumpers, 8klb winch, 37s...), but sold it to move to CO from WA.

(within last 6 months)
Upper Geneva (Geneva Creek) (09/04/2022)
Seems to have gotten bumpier and more rocky since last time we went a few years ago. Still easy even for the stock GX460 that was with us. Really nice views, some cool walking areas along the way, and very nice scenery once you're up at the top. Unfortunately, some off-trail damage at various areas at the top, saw a number of vehicles ignore signs and continue up towards old mine ruins, while we walked. Some people think rules don't apply to them.
Switzerland Trail (06/07/2022)
Switz is always a fun, easy spot to shakedown new parts and get out of town for a while. Trail is currently quite dry and rocky/bumpy as usual, airing down a bit helps if you enjoy a comfortable cruise. Did the entire thing starting from the Peak to Peak highway just north of Nederland ( guess what T.O calls "Sugarloaf Mountain", around to the hiking trailhead (WP1) and down to the rock obstacle (WP2), down across the road to the picnic area (WP6), and then out to Gold Hill (WP8) and back to Boulder. A few puddles due to recent rainfall, but overall trail is in great shape and the few offshoots I took were also clean and in good shape. A surprising amount of traffic, including 4x4, sxs, and mtbs, especially for a mid-morning on a Tuesday lol
