When Bill takes time off from restoring vintage guitars he likes to climb in his Astro and head for the hills. He often uses the "jeep" trails and sand washes through the desert areas of southern California to take him back through the Mesquite and Palo Verde forests. Alot of the terrain is rocky and the views in open country are spetacular. His Astro has been outfitted for such adventures. He has 4" of lift and runs 30x9.50 BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires. Should he get in trouble out there he carries a Hi-Lift jack on his ConFerr safari rack. Bill added a Warn Classic Bumper and ConFerr Jerry Can Carrier. He also added a custom air deflector to the safari rack and a skid plate to protect vital areas. Now he has a rugged "sport utility" that can easily carry both him and his wife, all their camping gear, a couple of friendly K9s and even has room left over to collect some desert rocks. Thanks for all the great shots Bill.
