@anniestebner First time driving the @intercontinental cruiser . She's doing a great job and I'm not surprised! #overlandjournal #expeditionportal #thisislivingoverland

2 of 2. Idling in low-range. Campsite scouting in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, Nevada. This is on the south side of Highway 6, west of the northern terminus of Highway 375, the Extraterrestrial Highway. Not much and nearly nobody around out here. The Humboldt-Toiyabe Forest is different because it consists of several fairly large but non-contiguous areas which are scattered across Nevada, with a small section in Eastern California. ------------------------------ #Nevada

I have to admit; I am surprised (but not really surprised) by the results from yesterday's 64floz insulated #beer #growler testing. The testing revealed a clear winner, and now we delve into the thermal images to understand what makes a winning growler.

Arizona is just a big empty desert.

Stormy morning camp scene, 5:45 AM, Nevada. Maybe this was an omen I didn't perceive? Like the sign above my desk reads, "adventure awaits", but the waiting was about to end, as some adventure and minor excitement was found later the same day. I'll let the story unfold... ------------------------------ #Nevada

There is plenty of "Open Range" in rural Nevada. I'm still on the Extraterrestrial Highway here, later the same day, and the second time that morning I needed to avoid cows. It's better to discover cattle on the road during the day when they are much easier to see, but I've come upon cows in the road at night too, which is more 'interesting'. Same morning, a buck antelope crossed at close range as well. ------------------------------ #Nevada

Beginning a morning of travel on the Extraterrestrial Highway, Nevada 375. No complaints about the view. Listening to a little Rick Estrin and the Nightcats. ------------------------------ #Nevada

Wind. "Sometimes it's not windy" in Nevada, is something we often say. I was wanting to take a shower, outside, but I decided it could wait another day. ------------------------------ #ExtraterrestrialHighway

After the 'next gas' sign (I had recently filled) I drove off-pavement into the hills to find this spot on BLM land, about a mile from Highway 375. ------------------------------ #Nevada

Travel range matters, at least in the rural West, particularly when long highway segments are combined with adventuresome overland tracks. Without adequate range, routes must be limited, and/or may involve frequent, inconvenient detours for fuel. Warning signs indicating 100 miles to the next gas are fairly common, but this 150 mile sign on the Extraterrestrial Highway (375) in Nevada, got my attention. Though my truck has good range (diesel), and I carry extra fuel, if one has not filled recently they might not make it it all the way to Tonopah. ------------------------------ #Nevada

The #toyotalandcruiser is such a solid platform. My friend @sthompsonpc just past 250k on his...however, this past weekend it felt right at home bombing around the Utah desert. This shot was taken high above the #greenriver at "Tyson's Point". The best campsite ever! #utah #utahisrad #overland #landcruiser #landcruiser100 #desert #canyoncountry #canyonlands #adventure #thetoyotamag #thisislivingoverland #livingoverland @outdoorx4 @provenoverland @americanadventurist @tctmagazine @sthompsonpc @100serieslandcruiser @expeditionutahofficial

That time we stumbled on a secluded creekside camp... 🏞

Then some more of this happened, hail. I'd already offered the flagger girl water and a protein bar...she said she just ate lunch. The U.S Forest Service was felling trees that were in danger of falling on the highway. The construction delay was about 30 minutes, both directions, but it stopped dumping after ten.

Utah, Highway 14, near Brian Head. I shot this on the wrong side of the guard rail after stopping to take photos of a sign warning about 10 miles of 4-8% grades ahead. Not a problem for my heavily-loaded Ram/Cummins truck and camper, the manual transmission and factory exhaust-brake make mountain driving easy. Up or down. ------------------------------ #OverlandExpoWest

Navajo Lake on scenic Utah Highway 14. Taking this backroad was rewarding. I will again. ------------------------------ #OverlandExpoWest
