● So Mike, could you tell us what keeps you overlanding and off-roading?

Tackling obstacles and watching the gratification of people tackling obstacles that we didn't think we could do gives me all the feels.

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

There are several trails in the Las Vegas area. This Lasfit sponsored trail we did was called Bitter Springs. This is one of my favorite trails here in Vegas since it has a little bit of everything. A bit of rock crawling, scenic drives, washboards to go fast on and nature all around with wild horses and burros roaming around. This trail has some difficult obstacles but we have a great group of guys that help each other out and spot each other well.

● What makes this a difficult or easy trail?

This trail is as easy or as difficult as you want to make it since there are options to try and tackle rock crawling sections or bypasses to take if the comfort level is low.

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

Bitter Springs is a trail for everybody and that's why it's one of my favorite trails. It doesn't really matter how experienced you are because you have options and several routes to take depending on how comfortable you are.

● What is your favorite or dream trail and why?

I have quite a few dream trails that are on the bucket list. I'd say either Cleghorn in CA or trailing in Sedona, AZ are my next two trails I'd like to experience in the very near future.

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

4x4 and clearance are necessary for the crawling obstacles but if you decide to take the bypasses this trail can be very easy and you can get by with 2WD. A good spotter is always a plus when you go through more difficult obstacles.

● How important is proper lighting strategy for the trail? Can you list from the most important to the least to us and explain why?

When trailing at night, lighting is essential! I had the opportunity to try out the Lasfit Ditch lights and they worked out extremely well. I also have fog lights and a light bar as well which I'm strongly considering on making the change to Lasfit since they perform excellent. You can never have enough lights either.

● Do you have any suggestions about lighting set-up for trail riders?

Like I said, you can never have enough lighting. It just all depends on how deep your wallet is and Lasfit makes lighting very affordable with high quality lighting. Fog lights, light bar, chase lights and ditch lights are on my rig and it is ample for night trails.

"My ’22 JLUR came with the standard carpet mats and I’ve had them in for the last 8 months. Living in Utah and having to deal with snow, wet shoes/boots, dirt from Moab, and dirty dog paws I wanted something that keeps the dirt/grime/snow, etc contained and is easy to clean. Trying to get my wife’s hair or the dog’s hair out of the carpet floor mats is impossible."
