    LMAO. Yup. I bet your Outback or my old '86 Subaru GL back when I had that have done WAY more off-roading than most "overland" and off-road rigs ever will. Hell, even my buddy's old 80s Toyota Tercel made its way through some hilariously gnarly stuff. No hi-lift jacks or G.O.T.O.S. gear required. Good times...

    I wonder how any of us ever made it through teh wilderness without all our fancy, overpriced crap tacked to the outside of our vehicles?! Savage times.

    I mean, most of the routes they mention are smooth paved roads.

    Maybe they can lightly wet the vehicle and sprinkle moondust all over them, especially the back windows, to get a more realistic user experience.

    The drive out to Crystal Mill itself is rough but not technical. I was out there last Saturday for a run and it was mostly bros in shiny Tacomas and Wranglers, thinking they were doing some wheeling. Meanwhile a latino guy and his family came bumping by in a 05 Rav-4 and an septuagenarian came rolling out in a ~10y/o Outback. And fwiw, no bros went past Crystal towsnit, to Lead King or Schofield, which would require a real 4x4.

    There used to be a fake spray-on mud product, in an aerosol can, for maximum poseur look.

    I can picture said bros out there with spotters helping them navigate such 'treacherous' terrain.

    Not open, and still snow through the top of Lead King as well. I just meant that these guys in kitted out rigs weren't even rumbling around "to see where this goes."

    But they were great at kicking up dust a little too fast, rocking the dad hat, rocking the DSLR and a clutching a beer while they said Yes To Adventure.

    There was (maybe still is) a place in Japan where they would spray mud on your vehicle with ~3” hoses. Give you that gnar look when you went home to Tokyo Sunday evening

    Ha, I do the same thing, I cleaned up our campsite 2 nights ago and thought the same about lazy shits in general. But recently I got a custom hitch which made it possible to put my spare back under my van....which means no Trasharoo sadly. That thing was handy. Lost 2 points in the process though.

    Gotta offer different flavors of mud. Red rock dust, wet coastal forest, Sierra foothills, etc

    More vehicles need an externally mounted bottle opener.

    I added this one to the old truck because there was a small dent and rust spot starting at the right place to drill.

    wish I had been able to take a picture, but imagine:
    Mitsubishi Sport Cross
    Roof tray
    Traction boards
    jerry can
    stickers
    all weather tires
    flag hanging, from a pole, out a half cracked rear driver side window

    You ever seen the Top Gear where Hammond has a winch on a tiny vehicle, and tries to pull some monstrosity Clarkson is driving out of the mud? For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction...

    While he might love the jokes in principle, he would undoubtedly say that it's pi in the sky for that little thing to winch anything more than an atv out of the mud.

    It would be pulley complex, but doable with sufficient leverage
