From the owner: I have a job. It is not Overlanding. I'm an amateur or worse, do not take anything on this site as expert advice. ColoradoOverlandRoutesandElements.com is just for fun, it's a hobby site, an artistic outlet, not an advice site. I am not the king of Overlanding, far from it actually, I have multiple regrets. I've made and continue to make a lot of mistakes, I've hurt myself, gotten people I care about lost in the woods and broken my gear doing this. You'd be a fool to follow me or to substitute my judgement for your own. I'm not an expert, you're probably more Overlanderier and smarterer than me. This is what I did, not what you should do.  You shouldn't do anything.
