Very cool. I just ran my '02 GMC YukonXL through some trails in Utah. Nothing to strenuous, as it has 272,000 miles, and I'm 1,500 miles away from home.
Breaking something was definite "no no".
But had fun anyway. Very cool hobby you have, I'd love to get into it as much as you are.

Breaking something that far from home would be a problem. That's one of the worse things about this hobby. Breaking something in the bush means that we have to drag the disabled vehicle out and that is a long, exhausting and stressful process. Glad that you got some trail riding in Bob. It is a ton of fun.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

I've had daydreams of this. Honestly, I've had daydreams of being the off road "support vehicle". With the space in the back of my vehicle, I could bring extra lengths of angle iron and steel, a MIG welder, a plasma cutter, compressors, all the "extras" for extended times and distances off the beaten path when things go bad.

I'm a bit of a fan of off grid survivalist prepper Youtube channels, and have watched some great videos of guys out in the mountains going to 100-200 year old abandoned homesteads.
If memory serves, I think they were even Canadian. One guy had a Jeep, one had a Toyota. Both were outfitted with roof mounted rigs that provided an insulated sleeping area. Both prepare food over open fire.

Since I can't afford another (expensive) hobby, I can at least dream and live vicariously through you guys.
So... thanks for the videos.
Bob

It is definitely an expensive hobby especially when you start breaking things. You had better have some kind of knowledge of how to repair things on your own, otherwise you are looking at some serious mechanic bills. We had a guy snap a U-joint on the trail last year. We had the axle pulled from the truck and the U-joint changed within about 30 minutes using bare minimal tools and know how. I still (to this day) wonder why the heck he had a spare U-joint in his mishmash of gear. LOL.

Indeed. Fixing cars is my career, so I'm good with that. "Props" to the guy for carrying a u-joint though, that's being very well prepared!
Speaking of things breaking, getting expensive, and being prepared, you might appreciate this video.

That was cool. He has a better attitude than I think I would have had. When he said "I don't think they will be able to fix it" was the point that I thought "at least he still has his sense of humour". Thanks for posting the video. I enjoyed that.

You're very welcome, glad you liked it.
Yea, there were a couple spots that made me giggle. He's more level headed that 99.99% of people given the circumstance. haha
