For you high roller/tech adventurers there is a new generation of drones coming onto the market that will automatically follow and film you as you experience life-on-the-razors-edge. You can now be your own one-man aerial film crew.

2014 Photos

I thought I would relive the year by creating a slideshow from some of the photos I took in 2014...

I recommend viewing on the full-screen HD setting

Judy's Ride

Judy took her first big ride in her RZR 570 and talk about a fast learner; by the end of the day she was going places a mountain goat would not go. I am afraid we may have created a monster. Watch out Evel Knievel, there is a new thrill seeker in town...

A lot of experienced riders will not try this

Christmas Parade

Every Christmas some of the park residents decorate their off-road vehicles and parade through the park. To paraphrase Cyndi Lauper "seniors just want to have fun"...

It's not easy being on the cutting edge of fashion

Rattlesnake Den

My friend, Mack, sent me some photos of a rattlesnake den here in the southwest...

Fortunately, this time of the year they are in hibernation but starting in April you definitely want to watch where you walk.

Pinal Peak

I downloaded a track from Everytrail to my gps that allowed me to loop Pinal Peak south of Globe, AZ. Once again, it was not a hard trail but had enough variety that I was able to gain more experience in the Jeep, particularly, with off-camber and hill climbing conditions.

As you climb in elevation, the desert recedes and you enter an area of tall pines and cooler temperatures. It's like two rides in one.

The road less traveled

Surprise of the day

My ATV/UTV friends are beginning to suggest that I am getting soft now that I am inside a cab protected from the elements and enjoying the comfort of heating and air conditioning. Nonsense! Just today the cappuccino machine in the Jeep broke and I had to rough it by going to Starbucks. Hey... no one said driving off-road was going to be easy.
