The Hard Way to Hemingway: We Drive a Jeep EarthRoamer

We take a EarthRoamer over two 8000-foot passes, skirting a massacre a lost hiker, Hemingway’s and someone’s misplaced underwear.

my side of the story, and I’ll to it in federal district court. Jeff Dworin and I were in a place called Burnt Lookout, elevation 8196 in a portion of southwestern Montana so that the map simply calls it Unit 17.” We had just over three miles of trail so hideous that our had been in low range, first with anti-roll bars We enjoyed steaks, conversation, and then climbed into our bags. When Jeff at dawn, he found a pair of underwear neatly laid out on one of the ringing our still-smoldering fire.

“Yours?” he asked, cautiously the dew-damp undergarment tweezer-like thumb and forefinger.

“Nope,” I “I slept in the clothes I was yesterday. Never even my backpack.”

“But you do wear Jockey briefs?” he probed, them at arm’s length.

yes, but”

“What we here,” he interrupted, “is a specimen of Jockey classique size gigantique.”

“Your is amusing, but”

He cut me off again. He had begun to sound a DA on cross-exam. “So what saying, sir,” he continued, that in a vast region current population is exactly, uh, someoneor some thingclimbed feet in total darkness, underwear identical to yours, for the purpose of, what, embarrassing

“Not my underwear,” I repeated, all A bluebird flitted past, by a raven as big as a mailbox.

“John,” Jeff, now speaking like a father. “Why do lies travel in packs?”

I had come to impasseor, rather, to this passout of frustration. Every for a decade, I’ve attempted a of off-road great-circle route departs from Darby, then leads over the Mountains via the wild Magruder and thus into Idaho. It was my notion to buzz Papa Ketchum and return to Darby via a maze of Forest Service Because many sections of two-tracks are above 7000 big signs warn, “SNOW CAN THIS TRAIL AT ANY  TIME.” As in June and October of last Even properly mountedI this once in a Jeep Cherokee, once in a Toyota once in a Toyota Land had been stymied.

Not this time. This I headed to Denver first, myself with hard-core weaponry: an EarthRoamer XV-JP, is to a Jeep Wrangler what, the movie Full Metal is to Bill Murray’s Stripes.

This particular EarthRoamer is on the Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon and is in the $5.5 million factory of Bill Swails, 48. In 1990, and MBA Swails invested $18,000 in Online. Nine years his stake was worth $1.2 that he was featured in Money now he pretty much does he wants, which includes his Porsche Carrera 4S convertible and the world’s most independent vehicles. He calls his XV-JP because no external generator is to power the cabin’s myriad Instead, power derives an 80-watt solar panel, charges a 2.5-kilowatt-hour bank of assisted during solar by the engine’s 160-amp alternator.

The XV-JP’s interior is a true of packaging. At the push of a button, the roof (a fiberglass/balsa sandwich) 180 degrees, deploying a tent a queen-size bed. Below is a toilet, a sink whose is drawn from a 25-gallon a fridge that even ice, a forced-air heater, lights, a ventilation fan, an air andthis is my favoritea shower nine feet of headroom) delivers water hot enough to body piercings.

Base $110,000. Add options such as the Walker Evans wheels, a CB and Goodyear Wrangler MT/Rs appear to have been from a John Deere and you’ll walk the plank to a fare-thee-well.
