Last weekend we welcomed a 2006 Nissan Xterra 4×4 to our family! For the past few years we found ourselves limited to our backpacking and hiking trips without a high clearance, 4×4 vehicle. We have pushed my small sedan to its limits with off-road driving and finally decided it was time to invest on a real off-roading vehicle. We bought the car secondhand since we plan to use the Xterra for rough terrain driving and have already tested it out on a local trail. Doesn’t she look beautiful covered in dust? We are so excited for all the new places this car will take us!
