I don't mean the ones who accidentally end up off the road !
But the ones who go there intentionally.
My situation is that It's a business need.
I'll be required to visit some of the most god-awful, and out of the way places, the Nevada desert has to offer.
It's related to mining. And visiting the tiny little towns that are affected by it.
There is a lot of irresponsible mining going on, mostly, it's about the large gold mines not cleaning up after themselves.
Back to the Vehicle.
It doesn't need to be a huge vehicle...I would prefer midsize, and am looking into the
Toyota FJ Cruiser. A new vehicle, but based on a tried and true set of frame, and drivetrain components.
It must be able to clear decent sized obstructions, such as logs, boulders, etc..
It should carry at least 5 people, and a lot of camping gear. There are no hotels where we go!
Let's hear it from some veteran off roaders!
And....as always, thank you in advance
