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

Cherokee Park Road 01-21-2018

This has been a dry winter for the front range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. A quick snow storm finally came through the area over night and throughout the day on Sunday January 21, 2018. About 8" of snow fell making the trip enjoyable. At waypoint 8 we continued north on County Road 59 which ends up at Tie Siding, Wyoming. As we approached the Wyoming State line, the wind caused a bit of drifting which made finding the road difficult at times. If the winds persist, drifts could make the road impassible soon.

North Sand Hills 01-19-2018

The unusually dry winter season has dropped very little snow fall in the Rocky Mountains. As a result, many areas are very accessible. The North Sand Hills Recreation Area is one such trail. The snow on the ground ranged from none to about 6 “. The tempeture softened up the snow making traction exceptional. If you have the urge to enjoy a ride in you 4X4, then the North Sand Hills Recreation Area just north of Walden, Colorado could be just for you. Trails Offroad had recently received a report that the sand hill were closed. Today, we found that information to be inaccurate and enjoyed a day in the sandbox.

Fins and Things 12-29-2017

To bring in the New Year, we decided to leave the snow covered mountains of Colorado and travel to Moab, UT to enjoy some Jeep time in the desert. When we arrived we were surprised to find that Moab had more snow on the ground then Denver, CO. We opted for a jaunt on Fins N Things. The sun did a great job eliminating most of the snow cover; However, the North facing slopes of the fins remained snowy and icy limiting our ability to complete the trail. We were able to enjoy much of the roller coaster ride, but decided not to tempt fate on the icy slopes. Still, a very enjoyable day on this Badge of Honor trail.
