While this isn’t the most important Range Rover issue I’ve ever blogged about, I picked up a “Reduce” brand two pack of stainless steel vacuum insulated tumblers. These two cups fit the Range Rover center console perfectly and look good in the car. As in you can use the both cups in the cup holder in the same time.
They have a unique lid with a straw, sip, or gulp option on the same lid, a straw lid is about $10 extra from Yeti. So it may not be Yeti quality but this Costco cup addition comes in at $20 which is very reasonable and a great accessory for every Range Rover 2007-2012 owner.
These cups are great for iced coffee and drinks, Reduce claims a 24 hour cool performance from their stainless steel vacuum double wall construction. In practice you can leave an iced drink in the sun light in your Range Rover, come back after running some errands and come back to a nice cool drink.
UPDATE: After offroading these tires more than 5 times chunks of outer tread are cracked but no damage to sidewall.
Mid-September I attempted to run Yankee Hill but ended up taking Miners Gulch which was also fun. I picked up the trail near Central City, Colorado. Central City is an old mine supply town and is full of a beautifully preserved buildings many of which are either owned by the city or casinos. Unlike many casino cities including Las Vegas and nearby Blackhawk, Colorado Central city is a town you have to see during the day.
Nevadaville and many ghost mines are close to Central City and Blackhawk, you can see very old Masonic and Odd Fellows Cemeteries close to where the trail pickup is.
I’ll post more pictures soon from this outing. Check out switzerland trail run.
