How about a little Monday morning inspiration? Recently Hema Maps posted a nice short trailer covering the Colorado section of their epic Continental Divide Route Expedition from 2016.
While our friends from Expedition Overland are exploring South America, they've been releasing a steady stream of videos covering a variety of subject. Their newest series is called "In The Shop", and they started off with an excellent vehicle: Clay's 2013 Supercharged Tacoma.

The Rugged Charm of the just-released FT-4X Concept car is very clear. Like the FJ Cruiser concept back in 2003, some will love it - others will hate it.
As we previously discussed, Toyota has a full slate of capable, rugged, and dependable Trucks & SUVs. We should know, we’ve been covering them for more than a decade!
Continued from 6 Days on Hema Map Patrol, Part 1.
Our inability to cross the Continental Divide via Union Pass outside of Pinedale, WY had us a little disappointed. However, after three hard days on the trail, we were happy for a nice night in a soft bed.
As a contributor of this fair publication I get to see, and even sometimes drive, some very special off-roading creations...so it's not that often that I get stopped in my tracks by a Land Cruiser. It was only an hour after my first coffee so admittedly my mental faculties are not at their most trustworthy at this time of day, but several of my senses worked together to convince me that what I was seeing was real. Land Rover have their 127 and 130 crew cab pickups but Toyota doesn't have an equivalent, at least, I didn't think so... but here on the streets of a little village in Brazil, was what looked like a double-cab 40 series driving towards me. Full of people in the back they were obviously going on some kind of off-road safari! The driver mistook my bewilderment in his car for interest in a tour and handed me a leaflet. A phone call later and we arranged to go on a trip in the surrounding jungle the next day. Easy.
A year ago, I flew to Merida, Yucatan in Mexico to visit Progresso. For this 7-day trip, I rented a car and visited Progresso and Merida. As I was driving around and seeing the different areas, I determined the area to be an awesome destination just to explore and see Mayan ruins, cenotes (fresh water caverns), and everything this place offers. After my week in the Yucatan, I started considering the different options I had from shipping my vehicle to driving it to the Yucatan. I came across a blog where a family from San Antonio did the same trip. I carefully read their story and made the decision to pursue this adventure.
The promise of sleepy beach towns, pristine and secluded beaches, geothermal features, and misty rainforests drew us to visit The Coromandel Peninsula (The Coro, for short) toward the end of our latest visit to New Zealand. The Coro is located on the North Island, an hour and a half drive or a ferry ride east across the Firth of Thames of Auckland, yet it is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the country’s largest city. With no agenda and a limited list of places we had to see, we kept our two days planned for the area open to exploring anything that caught our fancy.
