Rod Emory is working on a hard core off-road Porsche Macan Baja

Screenshot: @rodemory on Instagram It seems like off-road Porsches are all the rage these days. We’ve seen totally rad Cayennes from E-Motion Engineering, awesome off-roading in Moab, and even Porsche themselves are getting in on the Cayenne craze. And that’s to say nothing of the safari 911 trend that has been blowing up in this community for the last decade. The next logical progression for Porsche fanatics looking to get deep into the dirt is to start fiddling with Macans. The compact crosso...

Best Spring Mountain Bike Trails in Utah

Is The Crest good to go? No. It’s not even close. It’s still spring, and there are meters of snow remaining on sections of that trail. But don’t worry! It turns out Utah has thousands of miles of impeccable non-Crest singletrack that dries out a lot earlier than that famed route up on the ridgeline. “Where can one find these non-Crest trails?” you might be asking. All over the place. It’s all about aspect and elevation this time of year. Generally, lower elevation trails facing south or west ar...

Watch This Overlanding Porsche Cayenne Dominate Moab

Hell's Gate is one of the most difficult obstacles in Moab, a steep slick rock face fit for only the most powerful off-road rigs with excellent tires and competent 4WD systems. Porsche wasn't messing around when it built the Cayenne, as it was actually fairly off-road capable from the factory, but it certainly didn't have the talents needed to take on Hell's Gate, or even some of the less strenuous Moab trails. However, the Porsche-engineered clutched differentials are certainly up to the task ...

Choosing the Path to Bethlehem

I still remember sitting at that outdoor café table across from my mama as a newly-minted widow. In those days, it was hard for us to find time away from my three young daughters to process together. We savored our sandwiches on freshly-baked bread and sipped cappuccino on that fall day. Our conversation wandered to the book of Ruth, which we were walking through at our church Bible study. Was it any wonder that just a few months after my husband soared to heaven that God would have me circle ba...
