As I’m sure is the case for most people, the Holidays is a busy time of year for Cindy and I and planning things like trips with friends is difficult to do. And, when I got a message from mcpuck saying that a few of our old friends were planning a get together out in Laughlin and that we were invited to come, we moved things around and made sure that we could join them.
Thanks to the well needed El Nino we’re seeing this year, we’ve been having an awesome winter and one filled with lots of snow. Yesterday was no exception and after spending the better part of the day indoors catching up on work, Cindy and I started to go stir crazy and decided to stop what we were doing and get out into the white stuff for a bit.
Woke up this morning to another glorious day filled with snow and couldn’t resist the urge to get out in it. So, Cindy and I had a quick cup of coffee, packed up Rubicat and headed up King Canyon to have some fun.
After spending the last few days in the garage working on Jeeps, Cindy and I decided we needed a break and so we packed up Rubicat and headed out to do some exploring.
The link below is a thread we have going on WAYALIFE and in it, you will get to see all kinds of great photos of Jeep JK Wranglers and more out in the snow.
The weekend before Thanksgiving, Cindy and I were getting the itch to get out and do some rockhounding. We had been reading about some trilobite fossils that can be found south of Goldfield, NV and so we decided to pack our bags and our Jeep Renegade and headed on out.
As some of you may know, we’ve been looking for and photographing these 50 ft. arrows and on occasion, towers as well for over two years now and on this trip, it was our hope to find a few located all the way out on the eastern edge of the state.
With all the snow that we just got up in the Reno/Carson City area, Cindy and I were just itchin to get out and play in it. So, after taking care of some work, we packed up Rubicat and made our way over to a trail that starts on the west end of Reno and climbs up the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Last week, Cindy I got a call from our good friends Chris and Jen and they wanted know if we might want to hook up with them to do some ghost town exploring in the Northern Nevada desert.
Even though it had been a long standing tradition of ours to end our summer with a camping trip up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, it had literally been 5 years since the last time Cindy and I have had a chance to do it.
For the first time since it was closed over 3 years ago, Cindy and I got a chance to run the Barrett Lake Jeep Trail and thanks to the new gate at the trailhead which now measures 86″, we were able to do it in Moby. Here are a few pics from our recent first run of this newly re-opened trail – I hope you enjoy.
