Re: post up your camping pics

yeah, dieseldawg is the black one. some days he thinks he's superdawg, leap creeks in a single bound, climb mountains. he got a little cocky on the mountain, mis-stepped & i had to grab him by the scruff. my brown cow is a cranky girl (dixie), heck, some days she's so grinchy, she doesn't even like herself!

Re: post up your camping pics

was able to wrangle a week out of the boss. went to a couple small lakes.
road in was 'bout 10% grade, a lot of off camber, some big rocks & ruts with a few drop-offs
biggest fear was running in to someone else. road was pretty much single lane

Re: post up your camping pics

back in the early 90's, we took my '68 910 custom cab on a 2500 mile trip up to boya lake (yukon border), pulling our restored '71 McCloud Hiawatha tent trailer. 383 never missed a beat, nor did we even get a flat (even though i brought 2 spares). have 8 or 9 rolls of incredible scenery & wildlife, these are pictures of pictures
