I have been an off-road enthusiast since I was a kid. My dad got a 68 Jeep Wagoneer around 1980, and while we didn't off road it or take it camping very often, we did camp a lot using my parents' van, tent, and pop-up trailer. But, as an adult my off road adventures had been sporadic until about 2014. When I was stationed in Fort Drum, NY, I bought a 77 Blazer in spring of 1992 and took it on some trails around the base, but then all the oil drained out of it and blew the engine (I think it was sabotage haha), then in the fall / early winter 1992 I bought a 79 GMC single cab long bed 4x4 pickup and over the winter I helped people get unstuck. After I got out and moved back to Texas, the only off roading I did was at the local mud runs a couple of Saturday nights. In 2007 I got a 2000 GMC Jimmy (mid-size, S-15 Jimmy, but after they dropped the S-15 name). I took it down a couple of small hills near my parents' place, but nothing major until 2010 when we took a vacation road trip to a family reunion in Colorado. During this trip we camped just north of Woodland Park, then the next day we went from Deckers to Buffalo Creek to Wellington Lake to Tarryall, then the next day we went up Rollins Pass to Jenny Lake. After that, I got the bug back, but it would be another 4 years before I got a truck that was truly off road worthy. In 2014 I got a 1970 GMC Jimmy that I took to the local off road park in Bridgeport, Tx. many times to go off roading with friends. Turns out that truck was more rusty than I expected and wanted to deal with, so I sold it in 2017 then picked up a 1971 GMC Jimmy that was significantly less rusty, but it didn't run quite right, so after off roading it once, it's been sitting for 3 years now waiting for me to put the gas tank and carburetor back on lol. Also in 2014 we got an Acura MDX with no expectation to off road it, but I did take it on a few trails at Barnwell off road park in Gilmer, Tx. and in 2017 we took a road trip to Colorado and I took it about 3/4 of a mile up Black Bear Pass, but it kept bottoming out, so I came back down lol. Then in 2018 we road tripped to Colorado again, this time camping for a few days down near Durango, and hit a few dirt roads, but after that I decided I wanted something more off road worthy, so in late fall 2018 I got my 2008 Hummer H3 Adventure. I took it to Bridgeport a couple of times, then we moved to Lakewood, Co late summer 2019. During the fall and winter I didn't do much off roading, getting used to the move, but spring and summer 2020 I've been going out as often as I can.
