Huuuge intentionally triggered avalanche in Provo canyon a few days ago. 30 FEET of snow crossing a 4 lane divided highway. I’d seen the pics on the news but driving past the cut out remains today (that just opened up last night, after happening thursday) was eye opening how big it really was. This would have a…
It probably didn’t deserve this, but then again maybe it did. Either way what a thing to see! The real surprise was the recoilless rifle. Dayum. I guess the whole “back blast area clear” warning is for real.
probably not, no.
5 speed manual Turbo diesel V8. Hells yes.
First ever DAKAR win
Just got my bill from my daughters surgery over the holidays. it wasn’t a small bill. Insurance paid for most of it because we had met our deductible and hit our out of pocket max...which we would have anyway...but it is still a shock to see it itemized.

I sent this along to my supervisor. Even if you didn’t do as well or as much as you wanted, you gotta have that confidence. I still feel like I did well enough to get the full raise. I better damn well.
This last Saturday I had something I haven’t had in a while - time for myself. On a whim I checked in with VicariousILive to see if he wanted to do something with that and amazing he ALSO had time. We were thinking about skiing but that wasn’t going to work... “you wanna go into the West desert?”
Get up early tomorrow and drive 3 hours to go to a national park and clean up in 37 degree weather...and then drive home same day
and then it just keeps getting worse.
I was just going back through one of my old Overland posts...one of my first good ones...and I remembered that it was shared to Truck Yeah and eventually Jalopnik. It got 17.5k views and 111 comments back in 2015 and it didn’t even include any memes, divisive content or hot takes.
