    AM cars...

    What's the best car to drive to the AM trailheads...?

    Subaru's are too XC, but big old Chevy pickups are too aggro dh/fr guy...

    I need a good AM rig...

    i'm going to say a 4runner, xtera, or honda crv or similar . trucks are for the downhillers. Cars are for weenies, be it weight or road.

    The Element is the ultimate AM vehicle, equally suitable for AM bike or ski.

    AM means it can do everything to some degree. If I can't sleep in my vehicle, I don't want it. Tents suck...motels suck...self-sufficiency is the goal. Vans or pickups with camper shells are the best overall compromise around, and AM bikes are a compromise.

    I'm quite pleased with my 4Runner. It gets the job done. My Grand Cherokee also got me anywhere i wanted to go too...MTBing,camping,kayaking. I hated to get rid of that Jeep,but it was its time.
