We had two flat tires
We had a hard time not to get stuck
Tony Ramos : "Thanks for all the great fun, help and stuff. "
Justin Ionescu: "..it was a pleasure meeting and spending time with you all. I hope you all enjoyed our off road adventure as much as I have."
Christopher Smith: "I had a great time and look forward to seeing all of you again soon."
Tom Deckowski: " Just wanted to say thank you all. I had a fantastic time! Harold, the next time you organize another trip let me know, because I will be there!"
Christopher Smith: I have just returned from a Death Valley expedition led by the notorious Harold Pietschmann. :-)
Harold does not think the M is very off-road capable, BUT, it is a great vehicle. I have to agree on both counts. We traveled on "roads" that I would of NEVER tried if it was not for the guidance of Mr. Pietschmann and he was rather dismissive of their difficulty.
I took the trip in leather seated comfort, the SKYVIEW open and the B*se playing. We drove into and on some of the most beautiful country you can imagine. Places where the sign said "Not recommended for vehicle travel".
We had to do some road building now and then but the M's performed fine.
