I have spent the last 20+ years dividing my time between working as a mechanical design engineer and a photojournalist. I love design but have become tired of the cubicle life. I am embarking on a new direction. I am leaving behind the office and the condo and hitting the road fulltime. I am near completion of a custom 4 wheel drive vehicle that will allow me to work and travel around at will. I will be exploring the limits of off grid/boondocking travel.

Autonomous4X4 will be covering a multitude of topics including vehicle systems, power generation, food storage and preparation, travel tips, water conservation and much more. I will also be sharing the photos I take along the way. Like many of us, I have dreamed of leaving the bounds of day to day living behind and travelling wherever the road or trail takes me. I am making this dream a reality and am taking you with me.
