lol, yeah, about the cop who thought the Forester was an amphibious vehicle...MountainBiker said:Yeah, I was solo for the 5 days. Solo trips several days long are awesome and horrible, almost at the same time!
I came home a day too early, and got to the Sonoma-Marin line (San Antonio Creek/Lake) at midnight on Dec. 30. But I think I've told that story already!
I ran into a Scout troop on one of the canyon washes. They said there was no way the little subie would make it to the dead end where a hiking trail starts (and where they had left their 4x4s). So I had to try! And I made it through the deep sand and some interesting off-camber hard packed dirt sections, and parked next to their trucks. No drama.SenorSubie said:Did you meet any other cars/people along this trip?
It will only break down if you do something stupid! Not that I haven't done stupid stuff though.DOHCammin said:I would be sooo afraid of the trusty Foz breaking down in a remote area like that.
awesome pics, and def. the best time of year to go...death valley has a tendency to live up to its name!
Hmmm, April is when I plan to do another Desert trip. Those X-Terra's are very capable, especially the '05 offroad model!carljwnc said:That looks like a great trip MountainBiker!!!
I've been through Death Valley many years ago and was awe-struck, unfortunatly, I didn't get to do any side exploring.
I do get to go play in the desert around Las Vegas when we go visit my brother-in-law in April, no Subie but he's got an X-Terra.
