That was a great read. We simply don't have that kind of scenery on the East Coast. I hear you about the tires. When my D1 is loaded, the 215s sometimes feel a bit sketchy at highway speed. Most of the time, though, they're great.

Keep doing the adventure write-ups. Thanks for taking the time to share it all.

I have to say that these tires are the best tires I've ever had, period. A little noisy on the highway (less so than BFG M/T), very round (unlike BFG M/T), incredible traction, including not very expected surfaces like sand and snow and ice. As long as I downgrade my cornering ambitions, I am fine with those.

Thanks Chris. I think I have a decent plan for something like 8-day Death Valley trip.

Get out here Chris! 35 minutes from my house and you can be breaking axle shafts and lockers, and still be home in time for lunch.
