"Is that a Lexus?"
"Are you lost?"
"You should turn back!"
These are the standard greetings I receive when I use my 2003 GX470 for trail duty. It’s okay, I am used to it after almost 8 years. I have learned to retort with witty humor to diffuse the clear shock of these folks; My GPS told me the outlet mall was at the end of this road.It’s all in good fun.

The Dolphin RV, built in the 1970's until early 1990's, cornered the market on small, affordable, and practical recreational vehicles. As a young couple who loves the outdoors, we knew this fit our needs perfectly. After looking for a few months on classified ads all over Southern California, we finally found one less than 20 miles away! Our new 1990 Dolphin was in very good shape, but was still very much a remnant of the past. We made the decision to renovate and it ended up being a much larger project than we had imagined. It started with a complete removal and replacement of the crusty old carpet. After the painstaking removal of an endless number of staples, we managed to rip all of it out. Our next dilemma was painting the interior. It was the midst of summer, we live in the high desert, and the RV had old wallpaper that came off in pieces so small that The Sistine Chapel would have taken less time to complete. Thankfully, we found some oil-based paint from the hardware store that, when applied in two coats, completely sealed and filled any memory of the ugly wallpaper. We also repainted the cabinets to finish the white-on-white clean look.
My Wife, Dog and I drove the Pacific coast from Baja, MX to Chile, then crossed over to Argentina and Uruguay in our 2001 Toyota Tacoma. We Slept in our roof top tent and cooked on the tailgate, traveling for 16 months. Surfing was one of the highlights of the trip; these are some of our favorite spots.
It nearly 50 years ago in January 1967 when the first official SEMA show debuted under the grandstands of Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. At the time, the show featured 98 booths and approximately 3,000 attendees. It was not until 1977 when SEMA moved to Las Vegas where it’s been growing rapidly ever since. Today, the four-day event attracts more than 140,000 attendees and over 2,400 exhibitors from all over the world.
