    My wife won't either for the same reason. Actually, she'd drive it pretty much anywhere, but wouldn't park it anywhere. She'd leave it out in the street...

    Been a great tire, so far ..the only requirement I have with tires is atleast a AT, and has to have the snowflake/3 peaks symbol, these meet that criteria.
    Ive also had bfgs(in the pic below this you can see a bfg spare), nitto and toyos on my 4x4s, these seem to perform just as well, although I have not had them in snow/ice yet.

    Lol! She was really driving. It's hard to be a full time passenger and she got to learn about picking lines in a few fun spots. Now I need to take her up something a little more technical!

    Lucky man, as soon as my tires hit the dirt my wife closes her eyes and sometimes screams. Because of road conditions of course LOL.

    I was just up there today as well. Hurricane Creek Trail on I-40 west. I got a lot of video feed (sadly not much outside the car). If anyone has been on this trail I tried going the route to the bus. Had all 3 lockers on and in 4-lo. That clay is slick as snot and almost rammed me into the tree once or twice. Sadly I ended up backing up and calling it a loss since I was all alone and the mud was up to my knees. Not gonna happen. I was even contemplating getting the winch out to make it over but at that point I was just out to prove to myself and that is pointless. So I backed up and we kept going up.
    Anyways… that was a long tangent so here is the scenic picture:

    Out in the Idaho woods doing some video shots for a tire review video. Tomorrow is opening day of elk hunting season in Idaho, and the sun was out and it was beautiful, so the woods were full of hunters racing to get camps set up and do some scouting.

    As an out-of-stater, it would cost me about $800 to buy an elk tag in Idaho, and they sold out in a couple of hours back in January. And the elk herds are pretty strained from the introduction of wolves, so buying a tag is pretty much throwing away $800.

    I still go out with my dad and brother, though. I just don't shoot anything. I like being in the woods and trying to find the animals.

    Things got a little sketchy trying to turn around on a muddy logging road that suddenly ended...

    Nah we don’t need places getting too overpopulated. Just do your research and go out and explore.

    i found so many awesome places just miles from the cabin that I had no idea existed just by fueling up and driving around haha.

    I went and updated my post. It's definitely not a secret spot, it's been used and abused. I've seen burned out cars in the river bed, and what looked like a blown up camper trailer in this area too. There are way too many "party goers" out there and they're just going to ruin it for those that do enjoy/respect the area. Sadly I'm worried they'll close access to this area if that keeps up, that's what already happened in some other areas.

    No GPS coordinates needed, just generic info, for enquiring minds. Like, “along Badger Creek in Oregon”. Or “exploring southern Utah BLM roads”. Gives the reader an appreciation for your journey.
