This is a list of all our videos we made during our trips in the US. You can also find them on our Youtube channels Kalaman Films (formerly Sandbox2ofcrysis) and Kalaman32
We want to emphasize that the current road conditions can be completely different than in our videos. You should definitely check the latest reports before driving a dirt road.
You can see here how a dirt road can change dramatically within a few hours : hard frozen in the morning but with the warming up during the day transformed in an impassable, muddy mess.
Fortunately there was a friendly German couple "falling from heaven" to help us out. However such a "miracle" will not happen every time...
A stock rental car is not insured for dirt roads, so you drive them at own risk. Be aware of huge costs when a towing truck has to come to those remote places.
At pickup check the spare tire. M+S tires are a great help. Take enough warm cloths, water, food and do not forget to refuel before the dirt road. It is rare to have cellphone coverage. A satellite phone might be useful.
Some of the dirt roads mentioned below should not be driven by unexperienced drivers.
So what I say is, handle with care and common sense.
There are a lot more, unedited, road videos on our different blogpages.
