Zion National Park is what America is about.  Zion National Park is what America is about. 

I get to have a beautiful ride through the Santa Monica mountains and along the PCH every day to work but it’s still not every day that I get to experience something truly as wonderful as a National Park. It makes sense why people travel from around the world just to see places like this. America is full of jaw…

I love free campsites!  I love free campsites! 

 I have found a free campsite for the night! It’s amazing here in Zion for my short time here. I’ll post more photos when I get back to decent cell service! Tomorrow is a hike of the narrows.

Adventure Plans have changed..  Adventure Plans have changed.. 

I’ve gotta be back at work on Monday now so my plans have to be changed. I was originally gonna do Arches, Canyonlands, Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon, Grand Canyon North, and Zion. Now I only have time for Zion. So, who has some suggestions for where to camp near Zion and what are some must see things in the park?…

Cars being "improperly used" thread Cars being "improperly used" thread

Obviously, I dont mean “improperly” by Oppo standards. I am just referring to “normal” people standards out there in the real world. I havent seen my Miata in a couple of weeks now so I was looking at some pictures to reminisce. Then I realized how many times I have taken that car down a dirt road because “why not??”…

Anyone ordered from "tires-easy.com" ? Anyone ordered from "tires-easy.com" ?

Just curious if anyone has ordered from this website before. This site seems to have far better pricing than anywhere else I have seen but I worry it is too good to be true. I am going to ask my local tire shop if they can come close to the price I found online. Then I would rather just pay them but otherwise I will…

Next Adventure: Canyonlands/Arches National Parks Next Adventure: Canyonlands/Arches National Parks

I am very uninformed about the National Parks in Utah and will have a couple of days to go explore Arches and Canyonlands parks. I have a pretty decent itinerary put together for Arches but am overwhelmed with information about what exactly to do in Canyonlands. I have found information about the straightforward…

Shameless ripoff of title from another oppo and leading with a picture of a Mountain goat from an epic hike... Its like we had the same minds lol.

Videos and Pictures from Utah Videos and Pictures from Utah

Yesterday I went on a short hike off of UT-199 since it was close by and I wanted to get out and enjoy some nature. There wasn’t really a trail where I was hiking but it was still fun nonetheless. I also finally got around to pulling some video from my dash cam and uploading them. So here are some media!

UT-199 through Johnson Pass UT-199 through Johnson Pass

Since I found out that I’m actually working nights while I’m here in Utah (SURPRISE!), I figured I’d make use of my day time for some exploring. Yesterday I went for a drive East through Johnson Pass and enjoyed the wonderful empty road through there. Very fun mountain pass in the STi. Hoping to do some hiking today…

Made it to Utah!  Made it to Utah! 

After a pretty easy 10 hour drive, I have made it to Utah! The 15 was pretty scenic through parts of Nevada and especially Arizona. Soon after entering Utah, I exited the freeway around a town called Meadow, and headed North from there. A nice 2 Lane back road with a 65mph speed limit. And at the end of it, Google…

New radio in the Subaru and packed for a 700 mile drive tomorrow!  New radio in the Subaru and packed for a 700 mile drive tomorrow! 

On Thursday my new Alpine stereo arrived in the mail from Crutchfield and I immediately got to work on the install. It was a relatively straightforward installation, just had to solder together the wiring harness to the new unit and then swap the stereos. Pulling out the old unit was mostly fine except for the…

Driving to Utah!  Driving to Utah! 

Next week after Labor day, I’ll be heading out on the road to Utah for work travel. Since I’d love to experience some real hiking while I’m out there, I’m going to drive my own car and spend some extra time there to enjoy it. I’ll be staying in Tooele, UT (which I just learned is pronounced “Too-well-ah” and NOT…

Winter Tires for the Subaru! UPDATE: Think I found a better solution Winter Tires for the Subaru! UPDATE: Think I found a better solution

After doing some research, I’ve decided that I definitely am going to do some sort of performance winter tire for the Subaru this winter. Yes I live in Southern California where winter doesn’t really happen so snow tires are rather unnecessary in general. But I want to take this car skiing since I’ve got a season pass…

Thinking about replacing the radio in the Subaru Thinking about replacing the radio in the Subaru

I’ve always enjoyed car audio for the pure joy of just cruising down the road and listening to some tunes. In my past, I’ve decked out a Honda with 1000 watts RMS of audio POWER. That was a bit of overkill and a surefire waste of money as a college student, but I do kind of miss it now. I’m not planning to do that…

Mt Wilson and Little Tujunga Canyon Carving Mt Wilson and Little Tujunga Canyon Carving

On Friday I took the Miata up to Angeles Crest to find some fun roads to go enjoy on my day off. I woke up late, was lazy all morning, and played ultimate frisbee from around 1230-2. So it was a slow start to the day and I didnt end up at Mt Wilson until about 3. This led to a bit of traffic on Angeles Crest Highway…

Dream Garage? Dream Garage?

Okay, it is time for lunch finally so I feel like posing this question to you Oppos about your dream garage. Here are the rules:

Ordered some new sticks!  Ordered some new sticks! 

Since it’s summer time, there are some decent deals out there on skiis. My current set are pretty TOAST. They will still work with some ptex added frequently but they will be my early/late season skiis when I’m likely to be chopping through rocks and other crud. It’s nice to have a backup pair anyways and any time I’m…

This ice cream This ice cream

I ordered a four scoop ice cream because it was only $1 more instead of the two scoop. It was really good ice cream but a really terrible idea to eat that much. I finished about half of it but man was this thing ridiculous.

Sunset in Malibu Sunset in Malibu

Decided to pack our dinner last night and head on down to Malibu to enjoy a nice sunset. While there, I had to get some “golden hour” photos of the Subaru since i don’t really take enough pictures of that car. My girlfriend graciously took some photos with her fancy iPhone x so it came out pretty darn good! If only I…
