Here are some pics from one of my earlier offroad adventures to Big Bend National Park back in 2003.  We called this one the Terlingua Full Moon Run.

I might as well join in...

From my trip report of October 2014, here's my new (used) vehicle near Glenn Springs in Big Bend National Park, with the Chisos and Chilicotal Mountains in the background:

From my trip report of October 2013, here's my old (used) vehicle (totaled when some guy 25 feet ahead of me on the road suddenly tried to make a U-turn) on the Solitario Road East in Big Bend Ranch State Park, with the north rim of the Solitario in the background:

Jalco what's going on with the bull bar on the front right on the truck?  Looks like it extends and is touching the ground.

Apache,

That's actually the rubber cover on the bar, lol!  It came loose when my son backed up and hooked it on a rock.  It has since been re-attached.   :dance:

Well I hope pictures that are not gnarly 4X4s are welcome here.
 If so here is my trusty '02 PT Loozer .



Looks like my right front wheel is about to collapse or come off, it's just the distortion created by the photo stitching software.

That must be a new sign - this was all that was there last spring....



I notice the new sign says four wheel drive required now instead of just recommended...
