A fantastic video from Vimeo, various areas of Utah (including some very familiar sights to us) from a Gopro mounted to a quadcopter:

Time flies.. We went to Moab in May, still sorting the pictures, still have to post some. When we returned we put our trailer up for sale and it is gone. Now we are starting the process of designing a new enclosed trailer to replace it. That should be an interesting process and hopefully we can share some of that as it happens. Meanwhile it’s been raining non stop in Western NY which makes enjoying the Jeeps tough. Hopefully we’ll get some summer here before fall hits.
I’ve been following the Drive Nacho Drive blog for a while now, chronicling a couple’s journey as they try to circumnavigate the world in their VW Vanagon. So far they have made it all the way to the tip of South America and then shipped the van to Malaysia. They are currently in south-east Asia but need some help funding the crazy fees required to drive through China. They are running a kickstarter campaign to fund a book about them driving on the Silk Road to pay for the government fees. Otherwise they will have to ship around China – which was their original plan, but they will be missing a big chunk of the world.
Check out their site and if you feel like donating you can do so on their kickstarter page. Should be a great adventure to read about.
To finish up the front air bags I had to make a few modifications to the track bar mount and have some spacers built for under the air bags.
What happened to the winter…? It’s been a busy one here, between working on my Jeep, gprgrl’s Jeep, and doing an entire rebuild on my parents’ Jeep. But anyway.. The air bags are in the back of my Jeep and about done.
