    Trail Run: Mendocino BDT | Oct 15 - 17

    We're full at the moment, but there's almost always cancellations leading up to these events. I just sent a blast to the attendees providing an update about the re-opening of the national forests, and also asked for anyone who cannot make it to please let us know.

    Trail Run: Mendocino BDT | Oct 15 - 17

    I saw and thanks for posting. I'll send out an email by end of week informing the group of the good news. If I'm being completely honest, I was kind of looking forward to the closure to be an excuse to head north to the Rogue-River Siskiyou NF in Southern Oregon!! ;)

    Anza Borrego Discovery Trail: Diablo Canyon to Broken Shaft Gulch Question

    We didn't have any sort of issues through that section earlier this year and I don't recall anything being remotely rocky/technical through there, but these trails can change from year to year. The most technical section was through volcanic hills, and that was really just due to some oddly...

    Utah/Arizona in November

    We've posted the link to the GPX download page on the route page. The guide likely won't be written up for another 1-2 weeks, but the current gpx and kmz files have all of the POIs and discovery points. Enjoy and please post a trip report if you make it out there :)

    80 series Drawer system build.

    These look awesome and I can't wait to see them in person. I'm planning on building a complete storage system using 80 20 t slot aluminum as the frame that's going into the back of my Ram HD. Working with the t slot aluminum seems pretty straight forward, it's the woodworking that's got me a...

    Trail Run: Mendocino BDT | Oct 15 - 17

    We'll be watching how things progress next week. I wouldn't be surprised if many of the forests extend the forest closure beyond Sept 17.

    Overland Subaru-style

    That's rad! Can't wait to see this bad boy. For venturing out to places like the Mendocino NF, a soft-wheeling Subie is the perfect adventure vehicle. It may not be a Subie, but I'd love to build out one of the new RAV4 Prime's similar to what you've described.

    Trail Run: Mendocino BDT | Oct 15 - 17

    Join the OTG crew for a trip through the Mendocino National Forest. The plan is to begin in Upper Lake and work our way north following the Mendocino BDT route. We'll be capturing video along the way to create a new video route guide, but stoppage for filming is typically kept to a minimum...

    Overland Subaru-style

    @spiritual.potatoes That's pretty much how it these days. I'm likely going to try and get all of my alpine trips out of the way by July or after mid-October. July - Sept is just to rife with fire these days-- a real bummer! You might also want to check out the Wild Rivers Trail and...

    Overland Subaru-style

    I love seeing Subies out on the trail!! I've yet to see someone behind the wheel that's having a bad day on the trail! The Backcountry Discovery Trails down in Northern California are another nice option. Basically, you can do any of those save the El Dorado BDT and for Plumas you'd just need...

    El Dorado BDT Expedition - Aug 2021

    You didn't by chance do the write up on Hungalelti Ridge on OB, did you? Not sure a doublecab Tacoma would make it down through the western half of Pardoe's! Barely got my LX570 through in a few places, mostly due to wheelbase!
