FT-4X-Toyota-Teaser-Off-Road-3-29-2017

What is it about a foolish quest that inspires us? The number one pick in the all-time list of novels (going chronologically) is Don Quixote, whose name literally came to mean exceedingly idealistic and unrealistic. Anyway, I’m not totally sure why I’ve got Don Quixote on my mind as I line up behind a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk at the mouth of a snowy trail.
