Got home last night after leaving the Alvord Desert (above), our last camping spot. A total of 1865 miles, of which over 600 miles were off pavement in Nevada, some of it difficult. As you probably heard, I only had to be pulled out by Jim’s Jeep once, in a long and soft water crossing.
It’s going to take a couple of days to compile all the video and pictures, including some drone video footage, but let’s just say it was one of the most memorable experiences ever. Here’s a couple of quick videos from my son’s twitter feed.

This one above is typical of the kind of driving challenges that we encountered often. It took a different driving style than the 4×4 trucks in the group: I had to use momentum constantly to get through them, although this slo-mo doesn’t show that. But we’ve got a lot more video to come.
A big thanks to Daniel Stern for keeping CC going while I was gone!
Welcome back Paul! I can’t wait to hear, the rest of the story. OOOPS. Wrong Paul!
Delighted your trip was a success. Please give your xB plenty of TLC in the coming days, I’m sure it’s well deserved.
SUV Poser. Lol! Definitely not posing with the Xbox. Glad you got to try this and had some fun. Whenever I see those old dirt roads out west, miles off the interstate I often wonder what unique things they would take a person to. Like the difference from a hiking trail and an animal trail. The animal trails always show me something unexpected.
Looks like a success! and you managed to do it without 35+ inch tires, must be a miracle.

Glad the trip was a success, and looking forward to reading a full account
Looks like an epic trip. The videos are nice teasers and I can’t wait for the full report.
