1. Casey Kaiser: Jeep on Fire
Casey Kaiser was on a solo trip in Eastern Oregon's remote backcountry when all of the sudden his yellow Jeep Wrangler burst into flames."And I just noticed out of the corner of my eye, it looked like a little steam coming out from underneath my hood," Casey says on the Gaia GPS Offroad podcast. "And as soon as I lifted the hood, flames erupted from underneath there... I have a serious problem here."Casey unloaded a fire extinguisher onto the burning engine block, but the fire kept raging. Flames quickly engulfed the entire Jeep, burning it to the ground and taking all of Casey's personal items with it. Soon, the blazing Jeep quickly became the least of Casey's problems. The fire threatened to spread into the surrounding sagebrush - a virtual tinderbox of fuel.All alone, Casey worked for hours to contain the blaze. And with the embers finally dwindling in the darkness of the night, Casey took shelter under a Juniper tree and watched as his generously upgraded Jeep smoldered into a pile of ash in the sand.Tune in to the Gaia GPS Offroad podcast to learn how Casey narrowly escaped disaster in the high desert. Casey delves into the lessons he learned from this catastrophe, including the expensive reality of insurance coverage. Find out how Gaia GPS helped Casey's friends find him 30 miles off the pavement and in the middle of the night. Plus, learn why Casey played the odds and replaced his totaled Jeep with, you won't believe this, another brand new, fully upgraded Jeep Wrangler.Connect with Casey on his Coyote Works YouTube channel. Follow his mostly solo overland adventures on Instagram. And don't forget to pick up your sweet discount on a Trails Offroad membership and a Gaia GPS Premium Membership.
