Our story begins with some friends, their dog, and our rig, Jax. Jax is our silver 2005 Nissan Xterra, which you will get to know later on in the story. Anyway, the plan was to go to Southern Vermont to an abandoned ski hill where we would camp out overnight on the summit.
Our friends, Corey, Diana, and their dog Cash, set out on the weekend of adventure in their lifted Jeep Wrangler Unlimited on Friday, a day ahead of us. Corey planned the trip and received directions to the ski hill from fellow overlanders. Sadly, we weren’t going to head out until Saturday morning.
