The rigs that take us through these trials are all modified. Some more than others, but all are purpose built for these trails. Check out the rig pages here to see more on these off road vehicles.

GPS Maps, powerful ham radios, camping gear, navigation apps on tablets and even google earth imagery are some of the tools and equipment we use while on the trail. See more about the gear we use and some camping tricks we've learned on our gear pages.

For licensed ham radio operators, we include some radio repeater information on each of the trail pages.
