Off Road Rover under DDOS attack

Unfortunately we may have had to block some good traffic to survive a DDOS attack which is unfortunately on-going.  Please pardon any throttling or blocks right now as we persevere through this attack.  We have removed alpha functionality at this point to preserve up-time.

 

Thanks and Happy Easter!

Boulder, Boulder Canyon, Off Road in Snow

So when my High School friend Mike came out to visit his family we had to make a trip up to Boulder.  We hit this incredible breakfast place, the buff, that has $1 drinks. After that we went down Pearl Street, hit up the shops, took in the sights then headed out up Boulder Canyon.

We stopped to snap a few shots and continued up boulder canyon.

Turning off on an off shoot we off roaded until we couldn’t in the snow.  I didn’t take any pictures of where we stopped, I should have though, it got a bit rough and tight.

Then drove home and noticed the weather change from blizzard to sunny as we descended.

Idaho Springs, CO to Black Hawk, CO, Snow Mode Failure, Abandoned Mine

My Buddy Mike came to town so we made a run up to Tommy Knocker in Idaho Springs Colorado, after that we explored some of the back ways to Black Hawk.  We ended up taking a road that was not maintained in winter.  On the 2011 Range Rover SC we have street tires.  I switched it over to snow mode but we couldn’t continue to climb through the snow during an especially high peak.  I think perhaps if we put turned off DSC it may have helped, but for now, I am a bit disappointed in DSC, because I felt it limited my power up the hill when I needed it most.
