2005 Expedition or the sentra
2007 KLR 650
We've been through some stuff together....about 20,000 miles worth.
Normally I will just step off as my property borders USFS but if going any further/elsewhere I usually ride my KLR. The lake is a 150yrd portage and if we go somewhere else I will tie it down to the top of the boss lady's Kia Sorento.
Dang, now this is turning into a Jeep and KLR thread..
(nothing wrong with it either.. )
thanks!! one of the best days ever.
I just walk down the street
2003 Ford Ranger FX4! I had a 2004 Wrangler Rubicon before my Ranger and i have to say my Ranger is better in every aspect- goes through anything that my Rubi did, has way more room and a truck bed but isnt so big or heavy that its hard to get in and out of tight brush.
I got a tool box for the bed for all my emergency gear and tools. I also built a custom dog box to fit all three of my huskies comfortably. Once the back seat is backed with gear and the dogs are in there box i through the canoe on the roof and im off for a weekend!
Primarily like this- on ATV's. Or, in the winter, by snowmobile.
This is my Old ride
Corn binder ( International)
cummins power 2 turbo's!! ya buddy

30 ton's of loaded fun
I can still hear the melodiest sound of full jakes echoing through the canyon

An '08 Toyota FJC. Locked and lifted.

Heres mine.... 81 K5 Blazer, stock suspension, 32x11:50's, 350 Turbo 350...
Start with one of these:
Then go deeper with this:
Lucky enough to live on a large spread in the Superior National so mostly I just walk.
Sometimes when I'm going far enough back I'll take the wheeler. There are some old logging roads too, and if I'm taking the whole crew of kids I'll take my old jeep.
Some fairly new pics of the wheeler and some really old pics of the Jeep.
Yes, those are 120mm mortar boxes on the safari rack.
Those are sweet rigs Croatoan.. I miss my old Cherokee
Depending on the weather and gear, one of these:
and these before leaving Nome a few years ago:
My Dream bush vehicle is my reality vehicle...
That right there is my dream Bush Vehicle. Colors are exact too. Funny thing is that I drive past someone with that same car every morning. It makes the mornings even more painful!
Go to bikes direct.com
Usually I just go out the back door.
For longer trips I take the 4x4 Ford pickup.
I walk my sorry butt out there. or bike. When i have enough people ill take my POS 99' stratus. But hey, first car, beggars cant be choosers.
This is my ride
Russian IMZ Ural motorcycle sidecar rig.
88 Bronco II
Walk out the front door!
and a wagon are how we do it
2003 4x4 Nissan Frontier been serving me well for the past 9 years
I recently upgraded to a very non-bushy rig. Way too plush for me - Idunno if I can stand it.
Gonna have to do more walking.
i can just walk out my door and wander up the creek.
but if i decide i need to "get away" and drive a bit, i use my daily driver...
She was my dream, but is now a reality...
She is a Mitsubishi DELICA. i call her "Tessen".
She is a 4cylinder Diesel, 5Spd trans, with duel fuel capability. She has a 2" suspension lift, 31" BFG tires, and has been camperized inside with a 2 burner stove, collapsable table and bed. She also has a custom roof rack and rear bumper/tire carrier that i plan on redesigning this spring.
Last few years, i found that i prefer to camp outside under a tarp, so i'm considering changing the interior.
She has a few dents and scratches, but overall, i love her to death.
Well, I can just walk out the back door and head into the woods but when I head further afield I drive a 1997, 6 Cyl., Jeep Grand Cherokee.
2000 Subaru Forester, likely to be replaced by a 2013 Forester.
I don't like using a car to get to the woods. When I can't walk there, I take a train. The railway network is very dense in my country, and there are lots of spectacular old train lines, such as from Prague to Dobříš, which weaves through a steep rocky slope high above Sázava river, with tunnels, bridges, picturesque stations from the 1900s and stunning views of the river, its deep valley and surrounding pine woods. Taking a train, making some music, enjoying the view, visiting railroad pubs on tranfers and generally having fun on the way to the woods fits such a trip much more than sitting in a cramped car with one driving and others trying not to disturb him too much. And there is something romantic about railways, which can't be found in travelling by car. Especially those old, almost forgotten single-track lines with five trains a day.
If I'm just going for a hike or an educational nature hike for the kids, bootleather and vibram soles. I live within a few blocks of the county trail system that follows Fountain Creek for far enough I haven't found the other end yet, and can't trust the county maps.
86 Ranger 4x4 with inexplicably open diffs. No lift, street-ish "all terrain" truck tires of stock size and a habit of breaking down when I least want it to. Currently down for a new slave cylinder. Got enough cold often enough that instead of just not working into freezing temps, it's not working anymore at all. Also once left me stranded here:
Yup, in that "puddle" which came just about up to the rocker panels. Took me fifteen minutes to convince it to start again worrying about whether or not I'd be able to get my co-pilot and myself home from out in the boonies of the Colorado fire roads during an April mountain snow flurry.
Haven't taken it up in the mountains since then, need to spend a lot more to make it reliable enough to trust my son or daughter's life or health to.
I drive a Ranger, stock so far. Its a good first vehicle for a teenager, and solid for future work. Though I toasted the shocks this week... snowbank...
Strangely, a Ranger was my first vehicle as a teenager. A 97 reg cab stepside. It was only 2wd, though. It's been gone for years, traded it to my folks for a van when the wife and I moved cross country and they got rid of it a few years ago as trade-bait on an F-150. Ended up getting the 86 because I knew the wife doesn't like me taking her Focus wagon into the wilderness and leaving her without a vehicle. I'm hoping to keep this one in decent enough condition to hand off to my daughter in ... oh dear, 7 years. I fear I may break it long before then.
'05 Nissan Xterra - "Tatanka"
I call her "Brown Trout."
She's supposed to be black.
Used to go like this.
But now I use this.
Nahhh, just kidding, she ain't in the water yet. Got some work to do, but she'll be my transportation to the bush soon enough.
Until then, my avatar shows my method of getting to the bush right now. (Open my door, and step outside.)
Well is all depends on the season, If it isn't snowing I use my ATV.
for the winter months I have my Polaris Transport that gets me where I need to go.

I drive my bicycle, or take a train and then walk for a few miles.
