So what keeps you overlanding/off-roading?

It gets you outside into nature. My two kids and wife love it also. It's a great way to escape everyday life and explore things that not everyone is able to see! Life is an adventure and best enjoyed on the dirt! (So cool! Here big shoutout to Luke!🤩)

Tell us about the trail, why that location? What was the coolest moment? Any scary or recovery moments?

Hells Revenge, Moab Utah. The coolest moment was making it up Hells Gate. The scariest was dropping into hells gate on only 3 wheels.

What makes this a difficult or easy trail?

Would you recommend this trail to anyone or more experienced folks? 

More experience people definitely. 33" tires and at least one locker would be highly recommended. If you just did the hells gate loop you will cut out some of the more difficult climbs and drops.

What is your favorite or dream trail and why?

My Dream Trail is trail 74 (Walden's Ridge) in Windrock Park, Oliver Springs, TN. It's 3.5 miles on top of a mountain ridge. It's very tight and challenging, lots of off camber moments and incredible views!

*Editor's Reaction: Luke really is a risk-taker and challenger!👏👏👏

In your opinion, are there any modifications or accessories that everyone has to have?

Skid plates, and good tires are both high priority mods!

How important is proper lighting strategy for the trail? Do you have any suggestions about lighting set-up for trail riders?

Very important. Nothing is worse than getting caught on the trail in the dark. Proper lighting will keep you and others on the trail safe. It can help you see to get out of the trail, and even help if you need to do trail repairs.

Bright lights forward, back and side facing all of great advantages. Side facing can help shine into ditches, forward so you can see where your going, and backwards incase you need to reverse.

Here are more details about the Hells Revenge Trail in the Onx Offroad app:

Overview

Difficult, long, but very scenic and exciting, this is one of the most popular trails near Moab. Hell's Revenge intertwines with the Slickrock Bike Trail, so be very careful at crosspoints. Bikers have the right of way. Sand Flat Recreation Area has a small fee.

Technical RatingRead more about technical ratings - 6

Very rocky, rutted and off-camber trail with erosion, loose rocks, sand, washes and obstacles up to 3 feet tall, including ledges and short, steep grades. Potential for deep water crossings with strong currents.

History

When Dan Mick came to Moab in 1973, Hell's Revenge didn't have a name. He and friend George Schultz named the trail while driving it on one particularly hot day. George was the first president of the Red Rock 4-Wheelers and Dan was the second (1986-88). Mickey's Hot Tub got its name because Dan was the first to drive it. Dan knows all the obstacles extremely well, so I had a great spotter when I drove the tricky Escalator in 2007.

Getting There

From S 400 E, on the east side of Moab, take Mill Creek Drive east 0.5 mile. Continue straight uphill at the cemetery on Sand Flats Road. After 1.7 miles, enter Sand Flats Recreation Area and pay fee. The parking lot for Hell's Revenge is on the left just ahead. If riding an unlicensed vehicle, park in the lower lot where the trail ends. You are permitted to ride up the paved road to where the trail starts.

"We are outdoorsy and just have to have the nature fix of clean fresh air, running waters, and towering trees around us. Sleeping in our rooftop tent overlooking valleys, ridges and lakes keeps us content and resets our minds from the busy go-go lifestyle of business. Seeking trails out, testing my skills, and just having fun we keep off-roading to find those unique places."

How To Choose Floor Mats For Volkswagen ID.4?|Review & Evaluation

by Lasfit Official August 08, 2022

"I'm Wei. In order to find the right floor mats for my VW ID.4, I did some research and comparisons. First I have bought a set of the Weathertech floor liner. I thought the extra money was going to get me extra quality. However, after 3 weeks of usage, it still has a very strong smell. Also, it doesn't cover the full dead pedal. Then I came across a Yotube video of Lasfit floor mats and decided to make a try......"
