Tim Palmer

Mapping Crew - Colorado

Tim lives and works in Northern Colorado. He has owned and driven 4X4 vehicles his entire adult life including Jeeps, pick ups, ATVs and UTVs. After high school, Tim's first 4X4 was a 47 Willy's CJ-2A with a flat 4 and a 6-volt electrical system. Typically wheeling in Northern Colorado or Southern Wyoming, Tim loves being in the mountains and the back country. Because of a desire to enjoy and promote responsible off-roading and to keep it available for the future, he belongs to a local 4X4 off-road club. Being part of the community furthers that goal as well. A love for off-road adventures, camping, fishing, and hunting keeps Tim away from pavement and always exploring. While his wife likes the comfort of a Jeep Grand Cherokee, Tim prefers the ruggedness of the Jeep Wrangler. Although most off-road time is spent in Colorado and Wyoming, an occasional trip to the Moab area is common. Tim will spend the summer going topless and enjoying the value of the great outdoors.

Recent Trip Reports

Hohnholz Lakes 04-15-2018

With the mild winter in the Colorado high country this season, a few brave souls went to the Laramie River Valley to check on the road conditions. We attempted to cross the continental divide on Hohnholz Lakes Road. As soon as we began to enter the forest just west of the Lakes we found the snow. It was wet and heavy with some deep drifts lingering around. It’s not time yet.

Sugarloaf Mountain 02-18-2018

The far west end of Sugarloaf Mountain was snow packed and wet while the sun melted off most of the snow along the east end of the trail. The road has been well traveled since the last snowfall more than a week ago. This trip was completed on a Sunday afternoon and there were quite a few visitors on the trail.

Pennsylvania Gulch 02-18-2018

With limited snow fall this season, Pennsylvania Gulch is passable without too much difficulty. Because much of the trail is shaded, the trail is snow packed and icy. The warmer weather today melted the snow enough to allow for some traction. A spring storm will, however, make the trail nearly impossible to negotiate.
