It's late, but I got something dealing with being off the beaten path, but no jeepin unfortunately...
So when I was younger and in scouts we decided to drive about 150 miles out of town to look at petroglyph's (indian writings). Of course this is the middle of the AZ desert, absolutely nothing for a hundred miles (other than roads).
It's gonna be a camping trip, of course, so the night before we break out some white rags and play some 20 on 20 CTF, let me say, AWSOME! Of course, though, we can see eyes glowing back at us when ever we shine our lights into obscure spots, but we just think "yotes" or whatever, being dumb teenagers. We have our random falls and fun injuries, then pack up and go to bed.
That night, as a record, the temp dropped to 22 degrees (from the 89 of mid day!), we all had orange slushies in the morning!
But anyways, we go hiking the next morning, not to find one, nor two, but THREE sets of mountain lion tracks the size of a large human fist. Of course the petroglyph's were awesome, but later we found an abandoned adobe house. There are bullet holes everywhere, vintage bottles, old cars, and tons of old appliances. After a while of running around and after eating lunch (grilled cheese, woo), a kid finds a refrigerator door laying on the ground. It's a struggle, but we get the latch (fifty's era) pulled and it opens up. Inside... wow it was scary... was a good 10 by 10 by 6 room with an old ladder going up. It reeked of the smell of oil, and the dirt walls were lined with scour marks over every inch. Our little hands fit the grooves perfectly, short rows in sets of four scratched over each other and such... Utterly creepy... there was even a broken padlock laying inside...
Never been back, but may later once I fix the jeep... I have a great memory of the route out...
Otherwise while wheeling the desert, you always find; shot up tv's, burnt furniture, exploded propane tanks, rusted out and burned cars, mexican families hiding in bushes (seriously, not kidding), and all types of clothing. Oh, and I've found personally two cows and one horse, completely sucked dry of fluids, with eyes and hides still in tact, flattened out on their sides. Seriously, la chupacabra crap!

Using pure N2 is a total waste of money considering you can get 78% nitrogen for free.
