Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Buckskin Gulch:

"Some tips i wrote out for a buddy that will apply to you to: Basic Ideas/thoughts/feelings i like your route, its seems like you have a good urban mix in there which suites you well. My preference might be more remote and wild but you will get plenty of that as well. I would just go on your route, meet people, get ideas from them and take some side trips based on what you feel. I have been really lazy with videos and blogs on living out of a car and travelling but here are a few tips i have learned after years- a decade?- doing this: - get the annual national park pass- if you go to 4 or more parks, its worth it. just ask for it at the first park -leave your front seat open- for easy access for any hitchhikers you see. always pick up female hitchhikers and most males as long as they are just some homeless guy, even then- pick em up. the stories are excellent. -always have a few beers or a case in the back of your car- to share at campsites when you wonder over to someones campfire. i prefer something more obscure like ginger beer or weird beers like lionshead -a instrument if you know how to play it. -Food: i use alot of canned goods and grains that just need to add boiling water to. Couscous is good- curried cashew style. long life milk and cereal is great- my favorite is canned coconut milk. it will be cool enough you can get away with perishable foods for a few days (butter,veggies,salads,milk,etc). bring plenty of eggs, they are like a canvas on which you create masterpiece meals. chips and salsa rock. salt and pepper can make anything taste good. fishing rod- you never know when you can just pull off the road and throw a line in. -retrofit your car so you can sleep in it. this is so handy when you get somewhere and its pouring rain or you rock up in a city with no where to stay. you can slip into the back and park it on the steet somewhere. i've done this at least 50 times in the last 5 years. San Fran, Sydney, Melbourne, Phoenix, Vegas, Perth (like 40 times). LA- you can stay with at my brother place in culver city- he can point you to some cool places- he lives about 4 miles from venice and santa monica beaches- you can just cruze down there on by bike. i love the beach culture there- some real wackos. much different than australia beaches. grow the beard- this has paid dividends for me on the road (not so much in greater society though) go off road when possible- i got two flat tires at the same time in the rental while trying to do this in tassie. i had to walk out to someones house and hitch a ride to town 50 km. keep notes everyday. i still look at mine on occasion to reminisce about the good old days. look at a paper map, bring a paper map. if it looks cool on the map, go check it out. my dad has AAA motor club so he can get all the paper maps for free and guide books free. Trip ideas and thoughts It will be april/may so there will still be snow in the high country. -Not sure about Albuquerque as time may be better spent elsewhere. i have not been there so i dont really know. ive heard Santa Fe is cool. and check out Taos just north of sante fe. i think it is a ski town. - do the great sand dunes. youll see sand and snow and mountains all in one landscape. i recommend sprinting down the dunes as fast as possible. devin knows what he is talking about. i think zapata falls in the in the area as well for a quick side trip. - I like to hang out in Telluride colorado but a bit out of the way for your route. the via ferrata looks really cool. ."  See More

"I have done 3- 10 day cross country road trips from Pittsburgh to Arizona so most of my knowledge is more northern. Here is what i wrote to friend earlier this year: - get the annual national park pass- if you go to 4 or more parks, its worth it. just ask for it at the first park. My Suggestions would be Big Bend, Grand Canyon, Zion National Park (anywhere is southern utah is awesome), White Sands National Monument in New Mexico, joshua tree, Death Valley for the southern route -Not sure about Albuquerque as time may be better spent elsewhere. i have not been there so i dont really know. ive heard Santa Fe is cool. and check out Taos just north of sante fe, you may get some skiing in. - do the great sand dunes. youll see sand and snow and mountains all in one landscape. i recommend sprinting down the dunes as fast as possible. devin knows what he is talking about. i think zapata falls in the in the area as well for a quick side trip.. (too cold for winter) - I like to hang out in Telluride colorado but a bit out of the way for your route. -also near Telluride is Ouray- you can do some ice climbing... -so you could alter you route to go from albuquerque/sante fe to Taos to Durango/Telluride then over to great sandunes. Colorado Plateau:-The colorado Plateau is awesome but empty. it is the northern arizona/southern utah area of the world. So much cool stuff to see here: -North Rim of the grand canyon- I hope it is open for you (no snow) but it probably wont be. so here is another option, something i have dreamed of doing- >"  See More
