While living in the Midwest, I developed a passion for searching out new trails and hidden spots. That passion continues to this day in the beautiful southwestern United States. My wife and I are full-time RVers who travel from region to region, exploring every nook and cranny we can find. While we're getting to know the locals, we gain insight into these areas then pass on that knowledge to our subscribers. We truly enjoy traversing long, beautiful back-country routes with epic campsites, but we equally enjoy pushing the limits on challenging rock crawling trails. Our rig was built to do everything, and that's what we hope to share with our subscribers. Please visit our website https://www.xploremor.net to follow us and for opportunities to join us on our adventures. You can also view our vast video library on YouTube. Xploremor YouTube

We're currently driving our well-built TJ with the 4.0. It has the Rubicon Express long-arm kit. Rear Ford 8.8 swap with 4:88 and limited-slip. Front D44 Ox Cable Locker & Synergy Progressive Springs. Tera low kit in the transfer case makes the 5-speed conquer the rocks. TYRI has supplied an amazing light system.

Logandale Main Loop 01 (11/12/2022)
PLEASE Act to help save access to this wonderful trail system. BLM has proposed eliminating all OHV access to the area. That means closing all the trails north of the Valley of Fire. Please follow the link and take a moment to share your experience on this amazing trail system. https://eplanning.blm.gov/eplanning-ui/project/2016311/510
Bloody Basin Road (09/05/2022)
The trail has become more difficult at the end. The rating has been adjusted to reflect these conditions; please use caution. Thank you for all the trail condition feedback.
Four Peaks Trail (08/25/2022)
Backcountry Explorer - Trail 422 is a long out & back dead-end road. It easily leads to a retention pond and the Arizona Trail. There is camping along the route, but it's limited.
Lost Spring Wash (06/12/2022)
Having run this trail a couple of times now and in both directions, I believe it's better to run in reverse of how it's presented. But only if you want it a little bit harder. It's scenic and fun either way. If you want an excellent day loop with petroglyphs and old train stuff, then connect this with Cottonwood Canyon Road for an awesome day loop. There is so much to explore in this area, but it's easy to get lost or confused. Stay on the main trails or have a good map. The trail has a few fun challenges that this area needed. Every other LEGAL trail in this area is 2wd so this is a welcomed opportunity to use four-wheel drive.
