Never have I been so envious of one single man and his RC. Sure I can build one just like everyone else and we can race all day long. But you, you have something that I simply will not be able to get in the States, the most wonderful scenery ever.
Have you considered the Summit? I know that you have a serious amount invested into your E-Maxx, but some of the new features are really up the alley of what you do. Remote locking differentials and two speed transmission could serve you well on your hikes.
By the way, don't ever stop. Your photos make up a majority of my wallpapers and screen saver pics. Thank you.
