Man I would love to go on trips like that once I get my gmc finished! Mosesburb also has some cool camping pictures in his build thread.

Re: post up your camping pics

does anyone have one of those airmattresses made by truck bedz that has cutouts to fit around the wheel wells? I've got a 91 burban and was wondering how well they actually fit, and if they are worth it or not. Or will a standard queen size fit back there?

any more camping pics anyone?

Re: post up your camping pics

I don't have a 4x4, but I like this thread. This was the first camping trip with the truck, just an overnight in Tofino, BC (West coast of Vancouver Island).

Re: post up your camping pics

Here are some with the truck when it was 2wd and some later. In the campfire one the backend is in the background. That was on our annual weekend before Memorial Day "lip walk". We used to take fishing pole and try and fish but poles got broken and people hooked so we just said heck with it and hike, play wilderness frisbee golf, drink, and sit around the fire and tell lies. It started when we decided something like our hunting campfire experiences needed to happed more than once a year. Every year we go to a different location and drive until we hit the snow line and back off a a few hundred feet in elevation. No mosquitos, or other campers so a good time is had by all.

Re: post up your camping pics

Thanks Dieseldawg142. Yes the country side is beautiful, especially when it stops raining or snowing and the sun pokes through. Lots of good fishing if you are into that sport. Those lakes you refered to i'am not fimilair with. Not from around these parts, but my wife is. Been here now for 4 years. Still lots to see and explore. Hoping to get out camping more and exploring some trails.

The truck has a TH400 with shift kit. Dease lake is about another 6 hour drive from kitimat. This year so far winter has been mild. Snow has been disappearing fast and we have our fair share of rain too which is helping with snow removal.
