Our man Jonathon Ramsey drove a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon on a 14-week, 14,000-mile journey across North America. Check out his first, second, third, and fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh installments. Note: I've normal some interpretation from trail users calamity virtually my calamity on Yankee guy Basin, where I slid off the trail and left some tracks on the land. This was unintentional, and I very didn't desire to have an effect on the area. It was a mistake. For clarification, I'd similar to to note that the trail was log on at the epoch this occurred, in mid-October 2018, and extra vehicles  even hikers  were on the Yankee guy Basin road while I was occurring there. A local offroad outfitter similar to an treaty of the terrain bitter me to this trail. similar to I found myself in the predicament, there was no extra way out. Colorado is a beautiful welcome and I'm sorry I did some broken there.
