In June, we went with Nick Cimmarusti, a Certified Instructor and Trail Guide for Barlow Adventures, on an advanced training course on the Rubicon. Barlow Adventures is a Jeep rental and guide service with locations in Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and California. Nick teaches classes in basic offroad driving skills, advanced driving skills, and recovery skills.

• A father/daughter team with a newer Jeep that were looking for better communication and travel skills.
