Arizona decisions....

Since we moved to Arizona, I've been thinking I need to re-think some of my(our) vehicle decisions. 

I'm looking for recommendations on 4-wheelers, trail bikes, off-road trucks and portable grills for when we break down and have to eat the weakest of our party as a last resort.  (I'm kidding, we'd first eat any indigenous animal life that we could blast from our collection of 10 pellet rifles).  More likely, we'd use our cell phones for an uber.   But anything could happen, focus on the vehicle help I need. Thanks in advance, hugs and kisses!!!  Guy with the hippy dog avatar.

Back on track (ahem).... 

Oy, also If are stuck in the weeds, any recommendations of lump that would be good in an emergency. 

Thanks yall. Hippy dawg

    Are you really into pellet rifles?
    My next toy will be a nice PCP .25 or .30 quiet bull. Thinking FX Indy.

    Just remember... A 4 wheel drive vehicle is simply one that will get you stuck deeper in the woods than a 2 wheeler!

    You should really call me, the guy with the fluer de lis avatar.  I may drive a porsche, but I have backed into a few trucks.

    I also restore old dirt bikes, quads, planes, motor boats and international tractors.  I can hook you up with just what you need.

    Nothing wrong with mesquite lump.  You just need to know how to start a proper fire.

    Pretty pathetic day fishing.  Fun day on the water despite the lack of bites.
