Default Escape from Barney Riley 2021

Cliff notes:
Plan: Easy relaxed weekend camping and maybe using the hot springs.

Reality: A real adventure with 2 blown tires, 1 forgotten BBQ, 1 coolant pipe breakdown, 1 bend exhaust bracket, ugly nudists at hot springs, chased by a fire to make 3 campsites and across 2 states, no sleep Saturday coming back.

Tamarack fire was not on the radar till we were already close to the original campsite, it got out of control Friday July 16.


Figured a teaser will be fun.

Not quite as planned.

Was the vehicle problems with the Land Rover of the new 4Runner?

If it was the Land Rover there would only have been concerns about pinstriping and dirt

Reminds me to update

If you really want to break it....in, you should probably make it back down here in September for your Mojave Road trip!! Your weak ass has only been out there Once, whereas most others have been out multiple times!! JP took his Army Green TRDPro out three times already!! What's your excuse?!
