    Snow, Shovels, and a Stubborn F250

    Dune Days

    Running rocks, mud, side-slopes, water-crossings, hill descents, ruts - you name it - as an enthusiastic off-roader, I've done them all. Once I even drove over a frozen lake in Russia. Short of living in the Southwestern United States where desert... Read more
