That's great except it's gonna be August till the high country trails will be accessible. Then they'll be open for 8 weeks.

Reminds me of the year with no summer in the early 90's.
Light snow showers all summer. Cool, cloudy. Smelled really good though.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.

We have to make a point of getting together.
I spent so much time on Eagle County trails.
My turf was pretty much from Brekenridge to Glenwood springs. Leadville to not quite Steamboat.
I guess the whole heart of the matter with me moving was I can live here still enjoy my favorite high country trails. Those trails are usually only available in August, and September. I can leave here in the morning and be at the trails that evening.

I would love to. We just picked up a Lance 825 today for the pickup so at some point I would like to come and set up by your house bus and go play in the sand. I have never done real dunes before.

Cool!
I'm thinking about a truck camper too.
We have that giant behemoth 40' RV. It's nice but it's also a hassle. It's too big to fit into my favorite camp sites.

I looked for a truck camper for a long time. Finding a smaller camper (short bed) in good shape on the east coast was a challenge and the few I did find were either way overpriced, or sold faster than I could get in touch to look at.

So now I have the enclosed, diy toy hauler.

We both have enclosed trailers. I use mine to haul Can Am's or my Jeep.
It has a beer fridge and toilet so technically it's set for camping purposes. Man's two needs are covered.

I think I remember seeing yours, I'm thinking this maybe the way to go. Nice long enclosed trailer big enough to haul the jeep (or both?) and our crap with room to sleep/live in during inclement weather. We do like tent camping, but I'm needing a power solution for my cpap machine.

And in other news, this is why Texas is a no-go for me. I'll quickly travel through on my way to other places.

This dude's cable went out, he looked under the house and saw a few snakes.
Big Country Snake Removal pulled 45 rattlesnakes from under his house. This was a couple weeks ago. Another house had 60 living underneath.

I'll take the rattlers over the Sidewinders you deal with in the desert. At least a rattlesnake won't chase you down.

That being said, I've got king snakes here, so I don't see any rattlesnakes.

I'm sitting here in a storm hoping a tornado doesn't pop out. Weather's been really weird all day.

The 4th 5-seater YJ in the world.

That even got mentioned over here on the Space Coast on one of the Orlando TV stations.

Our snake news stories this year have had a few rattlers, but rainfall patterns earlier this year and the associated minor flooding put lots of water moccasins on the move around folks yards. And kept one of the better trappers working steady and featured on newscasts regularly.

Luckily this neighborhood pretty much has only black racers, rat snakes, corn snakes, and garter snakes. And it seems when the snake numbers dwindle occasionally we start to see more mice and even big Norway Rats that probably came from ships in Port Canaveral literally just across the river from here. So I'm happy to have my non venomous snakes.

Not sidewinders. I kick sand in their faces.
Maybe you're thinking of the Mojave Green. I never seen one but heard stories.
I guess they'll chase a person down if they piss it off.

Surprisingly there virtually no snakes in the desert besides red racers, king snakes and rat snakes. The only rattler I came across was a smallish western diamondback a couple hours north of here.

Texas. It ain't so much the snakes. I used to take road trips to visit friends near Dallas and Houston. This is a family website so those stories are better told around a campfire.
I will say I once missed a turn and ended up god knows where in-the-heart-of-Texas in the middle of the night. I pulled off the road for some Zzzz's and was woke up by a sheriff because I guess I didn't get my whole truck off the road. Kind of a long story but we ended up going fishing before the sun came up. Better than a DUI. Always travel with your fishing gear through Texas!
