So as a warm up we thought we might try the Earthroamer through a little more technical back road in Joshua Tree National Park. With a longer wheel base than the usual Land Rovers and Jeeps found on this road and the fact that we are literally carrying our house with us it was extra fun! (Although Jenna may not agree with the last statement).
The Hot Springs sounded magical and right up our alley: remote, secluded, totally natural and raw, and slightly difficult to access. The idea was to follow a loop route from Vancouver through Chilliwack to Sloquet, up to Pemberton, back down to Whistler for some biking, and finally back to Vancouver. The route to Sloquet was all logging roads and required 4x4, but now that we had the Earthroamer, we figured it would be no problem!
