    Moab 2021: This time we are going (May 17-21, 2021)

    Gemini Bridges is a very easy trail (easily managed by a stock vehicle on highway tires), what's the level of difficulty we are wanting? Lockhart Basin is a long haul, it takes time to get to the trail head, 6 hours on trail assuming no side trips, and a long highway haul back in the dark. I'm...

    Moab 2021: This time we are going (May 17-21, 2021)

    The Gemini Bridges area is proposed for area closure, so if you want to do it, now would be the time 9 - 7 Mile Rim is super scenic and pretty fun. Lockhart Basin is one I have not done, I will look into that one but I would be interested in it. Onion Creek is always fun. There's also...

    Hyundai Santa Cruz - 2022

    They are good for bulky light weight items, you can stick four filthy mountain bikes in the back and hose it out when you get home.

    The Power Tools Thread

    I have one and 100% recommend. The battery system snaps into their entire line, so I have a mower and string trimmer with the modular motor - so I can use it for a pole saw and a bunch of other accessories. The mower does my whole yard and doesn't even get to 50% power remaining - and that's...

    Hyundai Santa Cruz - 2022

    Corrected the payload numbers after looking at my friend's new 2021 Tacoma door sticker.

    Zeekr 001 EV - 2021

    One of them was from last year, I want to see at least one full product cycle than is comparable to the West's safety standards.

    Hyundai Santa Cruz - 2022

    3,500# towing capacity is pretty damn good for a vehicle of that size, it's exactly the same as the 4-cyl Tacoma. To give you an idea of how miserable the Tacoma is as a real truck: Top of the range 4 door Tacoma TRD Pro payload capacity: 1,155 lb. Subaru Crosstrek base model with any...

    Zeekr 001 EV - 2021

    Volvo or not, they don't have a great track record. I'd want to see some consistency before buying one. More recently: Comparable year Volvo: That frontal collision alone has massive safety cell deformation, the steering wheel ended up in another county.

    Apple EV?

    Spy shot of the Apple EV when it stopped for a charge. If LG's reputation with appliances is anything to go by, this thing will be a hard pass.

    Zeekr 001 EV - 2021

    It looks interesting, but I fear that a Chinese product is going to struggle with NHTSA and NCAP testing, as well as quality. Maybe they will do a US launch in Utah since their parent company owns our local track.

    Citroen C5X - 2021

    I like it, but I would prefer it to be a true estate rather than a part-crossover mutant. It would look far better as a low-slung car for eating up highway miles. The Citroen approach to comfort should make it ideal for crossing the US when you don't need a lot of sportiness, but plan to spend...

    Moab 2021: This time we are going (May 17-21, 2021)

    You know we are going to have to give them shit for that. Unfortunately we have a room already since we needed to get into a place that is pet-friendly.

    The Power Tools Thread

    The old dremel died last night mid-project; today I picked up a replacement and went for the higher power unit. The half-amp model didn't last.
