  • Conundrum: lol, they're contagious and more lights coming on, worrying to see the oil pressure indicator and also the windshield washer fluid lights, however I'll just wait and see if it goes away when things dry out. Good thing I took it through emissions this morning. Never Fails. lol

  • Conundrum: Wow, with all the rain I've been in as well as flooding in the X on Fat Tire, I have a new issue. Set light blinking rapidly and goes away after restarting the engine. I did a little research and I guess the cruise actuator can get nasty and seems plausible since I went through a puddle on purpose on the right hand side and that made the set light for cruise start flashing again. I'll check it out after the rain stops. lol Have fun and be safe out there everyone.

You wouldn't happen to have trip date or gps track for this would you? I have been looking to do a run like this for some time, planning on doing it this fall.

Well done btw.

That should give you some ideas...

Also, if you don't own it already, this is a great book for exploring:

Its what I use to find all of the backroads I travel on.

2.5 days is minimum.
I left the valley Friday afternoon to camp at Lake Mead Friday night. Saturday I drove in and Sunday I drove out. It's a ways away from any gas station so bring extra fuel. I had 5 extra gallons of gas and if I hadn't taken it, I would have had a bit over a gallon left in my tank after. If I were to do it again, I would love to take 15 extra gallons of fuel and stay out 4-5 days and explore even more small side roads.

Right on. I am set up right now to carry 8 gallons extra so it would give me a bit more wiggle room, but I might expand that a bit. Definitly researching this area because I want to head up there bad

It was a great weekend. If only Xterras were a bit better on gas. My dad's 2012 4Runner that was with me has the same size tank, but he didnt use any extra gas and still had a quarter tank left.  >:( Hes lucky...I used 5 extra gallons and finished with a quarter tank.

Obviously the amount of gas will depend on how many side roads you travel on. In that area, the main roads are really beautiful, but the side roads are AMAZING. In my mind, the more side roads in the middle of nowhere, the better. ;D

Depends where you go in. I filled up in St. George, Utah.

What program do you use for your timelapse? What settings? I want to make one this weekend when I do the Mojave rd, but for 2 full days of driving, is 10 second intervals to short? And is 15 frames per second playback acceptable?

I used a GoPro shooting every 60 seconds. I used Windows Movie Maker to make all the images last like .1 or .2 seconds. I just made them last long enough so you could see each picture, but fast enough to constantly be showing a new picture.
Obviously, the shorter the interval between shots, the smoother it looks. I just used a long interval because I only have a 16gb microSD card, and didn't want to run out of space.

For the video, I just had Movie Maker speed it up to around 16x speed.
