After months of searching for a SUV that offered high ground clearance, AWD, and great mileage, I found a Honda CRV! This little machine is great and reliable. With much help from my Youtube viewers and my partner, we found a great ad on craigslist and drove 3 hours to buy! See images below for this great ride. I am working on a video to share; it will be showing how great of shape this little 2005 CRV. With this little car I will be able to continue to record while off road and save gas!
Thank you to all that commented and helped with their input and recommendations!
