Combination Of Self-Sufficiency, Generosity Ensure Successful 4 x 4 Experience
Photo by Chris Laskowski
(Click picture for a larger image.) Maybe you never caught a touchdown pass. Maybe you never rescued a damsel in distress but if you 4-wheel you can be a hero to someone. If that someone came ill prepared for the excursion you can stepped forward to help out with extra gear.

Four wheelers know that preparation is key. Each driver must account for his or her own needs. But the real gentlemen in our hobby go above and beyond: The try to anticipate what may occur and pack extra supplies accordingly.

All trips entail a certain amount of group dynamics. Personalities play a part, of course. But preparation--or the lack thereof--can be a factor, too. If the trip is short, you probably won’t have any issues. On a longer trip, something as simple as a shortage of basic gear can cause friction and conflicts. You and the others can minimize or eliminate these by packing extra gear.

Off-road tools and gear to pack When deciding what additional items to pack, think of basic needs. Space permitting, I suggest you bring extra gas, blankets (or a sleeping bag) and radios. Don’t worry about trying to pack for everyone. Even one extra blanket can come in handy.

If space is limited, focus on smaller items. Some of the more valuable ones include batteries, rope, band aids, aspirin, ibuprofen, tire plugs, tin foil, toilet paper, garbage bags, Ziploc bags, and tent stakes.

While gas is always in demand, you may not have extra room. If your vehicle holds only two containers and those are spoken for (one each for gas and water, for example), don’t sweat it. Concentrate on smaller items.

Having this extra gear has as much a physical effect as a psychological one. Drivers are more focused and less worried about their gas situation when the tank gets low. Therefore, I always recommend bringing an extra 5 gallons of gas, even if you don’t need it. The additional gas provides peace of mind, and adds a dimension to your excursion: You could take an unplanned side trip along the way.

Similarly, a cold, restless night can really spoil the trip for a participant. That person’s demeanor can affect the entire group. Your extra blanket or sleeping bag can make a big difference.

Bear in mind that four wheeling naturally requires a certain amount of self-sufficiency. You should put a lot of thought and preparation into each trip.

Should you divvy up the gear among your drivers? That may sound logical, but it can cause some serious problems.

First is that the group may have only one of a particular item (say, a stove). If that breaks or the owner gets separated from the group, the other drivers will be forced to compensate.

Another drawback is that everyone in the group then starts relying on the others for gear. As I mentioned above, four wheelers are naturally self-sufficient. If you’re going to participate, you must be able to handle your own basic needs. What would you do, for example, if you got separated or stranded?

Another possibility is that you have to bifurcate your group. Drivers with certain skills or interests go in one direction, while the rest remain on the established route. (In extreme cases—say, due to severe weather or other dangerous situations—you may need to split up your group.) If gear is divided up among the vehicles, each group is going to be short of a number of items.

Bring the gear even if you’re not skilled Some guys wonder whether they should bring a piece of equipment that they can’t use (or use very well) themselves. I always recommend that they do. Even if that person isn’t very adept with the tool, another driver may be. Having that piece of equipment on hand could mean the difference between a successful trip and one that ends early.

Due to the punishing nature of four wheeling, various parts can break on a vehicle during the trip. Someone with welding skills is a real asset to the group. You may not be skilled at welding, but you can still pack the necessary supplies.

Believe it or not, it is possible to weld with two 12v batteries and some jumper cables. (Eye and face protection are crucial, too.) Another useful tool is an axle nut socket. Got one laying around? Throw it in your vehicle before the next trip. If anyone breaks an axle along the way, you’ll be considered a hero.

While you cannot be responsible for anyone else’s careless attitude and you can’t possibly foresee every issue that may arise, you can mitigate many problems with a little more planning. Carrying some extra gear you can give or lend to a teammate can improve the 4 x 4 experience for everyone.

Checking out the Carson and Colorado RR Tunnel

Thu, 05/15/2014 - 00:00

Checking out the Carson & Colorado RR Tunnel
View from the C&C railroad bed on Montgomery Pass.
(Click picture for a larger image.)
One of the great advantages four wheeling has over regular road trips is the ability to go places and see things that you can’t normally. Ghost towns, discontinued mines, remote campsites, mountain streams and meadows—among other scenic areas—are within our reach.

As part of my ongoing scouting, I’m always looking for new trails and destinations. Many of my excursions occur over several days, but I also seek shorter routes. One day, I crossed over the bed of the Carson and Colorado railroad. There was a marker and a brief history of the now ghost railroad. I became really fascinated by railroad history in general and C & C line in particular. I wanted to know how much of the railroad bed existed, old stations still stood, and how accessible they are today.

During various trips last year I travelled almost the entire length in Nevada and California. The old route offers an interesting lesson in railroad history because of its importance in the development and growth in the southwest.

This year I decided to organize a trip to one section I could not previously find: the tunnel cut through Montgomery Pass.

History of the Carson & Colorado railroad The C & C began operation in August 1883. Interestingly it was owned by the Virginia and Truckee RR (V&T) – a short line serving the Comstock mining district in the Carson City and Virginia City NV area. To save money, it was designed as a narrow gauge (3 ft. wide) railroad. Covering about 300 miles, the railroad ran from Mound House, Nev. to Keeler, Calif. Its primary function was to haul the vast minerals, mainly gold and silver, from the mines in Nevada. It also served the Ranchers and farmers hauling agriculture products to markets in the east.

The rail line climbed to more than 7,100 feet as it worked its way through Montgomery Pass. It is there that engineers cut the only tunnel to maintain about a 2% grade needed for the route. (It is that tunnel that is the focus of a recent expedition.)

The name C&C came from the original plan to build the railroad from the Carson River to the Colorado River.

Southern Pacific purchased the C & C railroad in 1900, and in 1905 converted 140 miles of track in Nevada to standard gauge. Most of that track was abandoned in the 1930s and ’40s. The final run on the narrow gauge track occurred on April 29, 1960.



First train through the Montgomery Pass tunnel
(Courtesy of Eastern California Museum) Route to the C & C railroad tunnel Thanks to Roger Mitchell’s guide book Great Basin SUV Trails Vol. II, I mapped out a route from Bishop, Calif., to the tunnel. [Note: you reach the start of the trail head from Tonopah, NV as well.] It proved to be just as interesting as I imagined. It’s a relatively short drive (as four wheeling goes), and the trail is in good shape.

The drive from Bishop to the trail head took about an hour. We drove US6 for about 50 miles to a point near [N37 58.338 W118 19.785] where the old railroad bed crosses the highway almost at the top of Montgomery Pass.

Although the trail is in pretty good shape, you definitely need a 4WD vehicle. Driving was smooth overall, though you need to use compression braking while changing grade in the mountain passes.


Deep cut through the mountains.
(Click picture for a larger image.)
I was continually amazed at the condition of the trail, especially over old washes. Engineers many years ago filled in and leveled those sections. The fill, 10-15 deep in places, was just as solid and stable as the day it was built. It’s a testament to their engineering and construction ability. Well-constructed fill.
(Click picture for a larger image.)
The north end of the tunnel is about 2.2 miles in. We were there in 45 minutes. There were some truly awesome views of the White Mountains and Sierra Nevada Mountains on the way in. The tunnel can no longer be safely entered. By traversing down a steep bypass, we dropped to the lower RR bed as it winds out of the south entrance on the mountain contours. A very short drive put us at the south entrance. We chose not turn retrace out path but follow the south bound RR bed until in came out again on the highway.

Total distance to and from the highway was about 4.5 miles. We averaged around 3 mph, so the railroad part of the trip took about 90 minutes. But that includes stops for picture taking and walking around. After returning to the highway, we headed back to Bishop. North Entrance to the C&C tunnel
(Click picture for a larger image.) South Entrance to the C&C tunnel
(Click picture for a larger image.)

The entire drive was approximately 150 miles, and took about [4.5 hours]. Most vehicles can make that with a tank of gas. Prepare as you would for any other drive in the remote areas. On your return to Bishop, stop at the C&C Railroad Museum in Laws, CA. (Laws a major station on the California section just east of Bishop.)

Driving the old railroad beds adds an interesting dimension to four wheeling. These old beds tie together so many historical places and events. The C & C tunnel near (Bishop/Montgomery Pass) offers a unique and fascinating look at railroad history in the southwest. I suggest you consider it the next time you’re looking for a day excursion when you are near Bishop, Calif., or Tonopah, Nev.

5 Reasons To Love Your 4WD Vehicle

Wed, 04/16/2014 - 00:00

5 Reasons To Love Your 4WD Vehicle
White Pockets, Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, AZ
(Click picture for a larger image.)



As a four-wheeler, you probably spend a lot of time off road. Doing so allows you to marvel at the many amazing sights and sounds of the great outdoors. You can really appreciate and experience nature.


How often, though, do you take time to appreciate the amazing piece of hardware that got you to your remote destination? I won’t get all philosophical on you, but I think it’s important to reflect on your 4WD vehicle. Not from an engineering perspective (how thousands of parts work so smoothly together), but how the vehicle adds so much value to your life.


As you prepare for your next 4WD adventure, consider these five qualities inherent in your 4WD vehicle. Regardless of the make or model, that vehicle offers you far more than a standard car could.





Freedom: Four wheeling offers a sense of adventure. Your vehicle can take you places a car cannot, and allow you to engage in activities you otherwise would not. You’re no longer confined to the concrete and asphalt barriers of ordinary driving. Nothing wrong with driving on roads, of course. But being able to get away from it all is so liberating.

Visit ghost towns, fjord streams, cross deserts and sand dunes; experience the peaks and valleys of nature. Enjoy the outdoors with many or with none at all. Let the wind blow through your hair as you leave life behind, if only for an afternoon. You decide. Safety: Four wheeling by its nature involves encountering and overcoming challenges. You drive in areas not designed for the average vehicle. In the process you develop skills that serve you off the trails as well.

You are more skilled and better prepared—at least compared to the average driver—for bad weather, terrible road conditions and disaster situations. Your vehicle is equipped with gear that can carry you through some of the worst conditions you may face in urban areas. Get stuck in a snow bank? You know what to do.

Driving off road makes you a better driver on the roads. You are more in tune with the dynamics and characteristics of your vehicle: how wide it is, how it performs in certain situations, and so forth. That knowledge and those skills stick with you for life.

I recently received an email from a former student who said she avoided an accident on the road because of her off-road capabilities. Having driven on rocky terrain, she had a good understanding of her vehicle’s dimensions. As the pileup occurred in front of her, this woman realized she could squeeze between two vehicles, thereby keeping her from becoming part of the mess. She got through with just inches to spare on either side.

While off-road, every obstacle is different. This forces you to make certain calculations and judgments: What kind of terrain you’re facing, how your vehicle will react, your vehicle’s dimensions (including clearance), and, finally, how best to handle the obstacle. You don’t get that kind of training driving on streets. Versatility: 4WD vehicles are quite versatile. They can go off-road easily enough, of course, and they are not some huge RV that stays parked in the yard and is used only four or five times a year. 4WD vehicles are used every day to commute, get groceries and run other errands. They are generally very good at hauling heavier loads like pulling a boat out of the water. When coupled with a trailer, a 4WD vehicle allows you to bring home plywood or camp in comfort.

Even though I spread out when I go by myself, I still have room for several passengers. So you can take your family or friends along. In fact, I encourage you to do just that. A Good Hobby

With your 4WD vehicle, you can choose to take day trips, weekend getaways, or escape for a week or more. You’re not as limited as others might be. Your training, gear and vehicle allow you to experience so much more during your free time. And, you may even decide to take more free time. Now there’s a great idea! Year-round birthday gift: What other gift have you received or given yourself that offers so much pleasure? And that allows you to keep on enhancing? 4WD vehicles are like good websites: they keep on changing. Just think of all the goodies you can add or replace over time: tires, rims, bumpers, rocker rails, lift kits, radios…the list is nearly endless. I mean, heck, why keep the money in your wallet when it can do more good on your vehicle, right?

A 4WD vehicle is infinitely customizable. There are dozens of firms out there willing to help you part with your hard-earned cash so you can express your true self. Sound Investment: Because of their versatility and durability, 4WD vehicles tend to hold their value. They are even quite popular with folks who spend their days on the roads. You can expect a pretty good resale value for your vehicle when the time comes.

This is why many households purchase a 4WD vehicle (or one that’s easily convertible to off-road use). The vehicles are just as useful for everyday driving as they are for going on the trails. The next time you need to replace a car, consider purchasing a 4WD vehicle.



Someone once said that a man’s best friend is his dog. That’s probably true. But a close second has to be his 4WD vehicle. It may not be able to wag its tail and lick your face, but it can be quite the companion nonetheless.
