Baja for Beginners

can. For me, Baja was always at the top. By way of off roading even more so. But Baja isn’t a small road trip, it’s international travel even though it’s still just down the road from southern california. Baja can be daunting to say the least. So in late 2016 I began my task of taking part in the Trail of Missions, which is put on by Desert Assassins, a company operated by Cameron and Heidi Steele, of Baja racing fame. The Trail of Missions is a 2000 mile journey from the border, to the southern portion of Baja California Sur. Each year follows the royal road through a varied list of historic missions, with incredible landscapes, and the punishing trails connecting them.

t’s all about the mindset. There’s a place right on the beaten path, a place where everyone goes. It’s linked together with a spider web of asphalt and telephone poles. Homes so close together that people have to unintentionally see every move of their neighbors.

New England or Bust

In May of 2016, at 18 years old and still a senior in high school, my brother and I set out on our first major overland trip – a trip I had coined as the “New England Loop.” A trip that would, as Steinbeck put it, absolutely take me. In 4 days I covered over 700 miles of New England, starting in Massachusetts, heading north into Vermont, right up to the border of our friendly northern neighbors in Canada, east into the White Mountains of New Hampshire, into southern Maine, and finally back to Massachusetts.

FJ Summit X

So I wanted to provide an AAR (After Action Report on FJ Summit) because I know a lot of people would have loved to go, and between this and TaCo Rock Therapy I think the best Toyota events happen within 3 hours of each other in Moab and Ouray.

I’ll preface this by saying I was incredibly on the fence about going. I tried to register originally for the event, but got on the wait list within 30 seconds. Registration is brutal and I didn’t find out about being on the wait list until mid-april. I signed up thinking worst case I could sell my ticket.

Cooking with Farm Equipment

In this, our latest (and only) episode of "Cooking with Farm Equipment" we will be tilling a field prior to sowing our crops using a disc harrow borrowed from our friend, Jerry L'Ecuyer... This important implement will not only break up our soil, chop up old weeds and crop remains, but later it will also help us make one hell of a good cheeseburger. You heard me.

t doesn't take very much to spring an excellent adventure. This idea of spontaneous and unplanned adventures is often forgotten, even avoided in the popular adventure and overland scene, but exactly the idea one must discover and rediscover to truly live and experience a passion for adventure.
