went camping out in the desert this weekend with a few friends and my buddy brought his 2wd open rear xterra. it actually did pretty good, i only had to pull him out 3 times. but the trails were pretty easy. most of these pics are from the west loop and east loop trails with a couple detours to find some rocks. enjoy.



the new dakars handle the weight pretty well


i have no idea what this is but the date in the concrete was july 1953







i did this a few times



now for the bad quality ones. sorry.somone thought the multiple shot setting would be a good idea





















the pics are kinda boring but we were just out having fun and screwin around.

haha yeah i dont know it had bars on it like it was a drain maybe. but why would there be a drain in the middle of the desert? it seemed like it went down deep but there was too much trash and rocks on top to tell

I would guess it was a bomb shelter.

1953 would have been right in the middle of the cold war and many people were scared we were going to get nuked.

Hiding in the middle of nowhere and building a concrete bunker was the best thing you could do, so some people did it.

LOL....."I did this a few times."

I saw about 20 xterra`s the other weekend-that`s funny. Yeah, with mods they wheel nice-kinda like a jeep.

Looks like a great time, wish I had more time for wheelin'. Full time job, full time masters program = no fun. I couldn't help but notice you were pulling your buddy up the hill in reverse, just wanted to let you know you might not want to do that. The gearing on reverse is not near as strong as 1st, that is pretty hard on it and would likely do some damage if done often. I would only do that in a must-do situation. Anyways, looks like a lot of fun!

yeah i just wish it was a 4x4 so we could go do more fun stuff. but i think all the weight in the back gives it good traction or somthing
