After a very long hiatus from offroading- in which i took care of some problems with the rig (and installed my front bumper)- it was time to go for some serious offroading. had a nice 2 day trip to the southern desert- and did a 70 mile trip.

this is a dry riverbed called "ashosh". the problem is that in the middle of the river there is a steep part that has claimed the lives of many jeeps - here it is- and here we are trying to figure out how to drive up this monster

and here is the kia:

this is VARDIT- another steep incline - and here we try to climb (hard - we are hung over)
