#45: 1.21 Gigawatts of WHAT THE F*CK WAS THAT?! A lightning strike just fried the off-grid ranch.

Being completely honest with this statement…Craig is lucky to be alive today. Immediately upon his return from Bears Ears, a massive lightning strike decimated the off-grid ranch in Gunnison. Craig was in the house when it happened and witnessed lightning bolts of energy pulsing through the air in the living room area. He explains what happened, how the strike completely destroyed the entire electrical system, and what it’s going to take to get everything back up and running again. Thanks for tuning in!

#43: Craig talks about how his winter survival experience pushed him past the breaking point

In true truck camping fashion, we recorded this episode on the back of Craig’s tailgate this morning from camp in Bears Ears National Monument. I’ve been wanting to talk to Craig about his experience this past winter living at the off-grid ranch in Gunnison County, CO with snowmobile access only. What was it like when the walls started to close in? Was there ever a moment when he wanted to quit and leave the ranch? Craig goes into detail about how this past winter changed him physically, mentally, and spiritually. Thanks for tuning in and have a great weekend!
