Re: post up your camping pics

I just started taking out my latest dog last year. She's a rescue and still getting used to the off road gig. She does love being out there though. Does great off leash, comes as soon as I call her. I'm pretty sure she scared something coming near our campsite one night too. Was sitting right by me and bolted to the edge of the campsite barked out into the darkness and the next thing we heard was some rustling of stuff on the ground in the distance. Pretty cool.





My buddy Shane and his daughter with Storm zipping through between them.


Her first trip out for our annual snow run.








I got her a new light up collar for next season's camping fun. Storm is a little hard to see in the dark. I need to get her a coat too. She got pretty cold on one of our runs in the early fall.

Thanks dude! She's a mix, some cattle dog, some shepherd, don't really have it nailed down. She's pretty smart and does herd our other older dog around at times. Pretty funny to watch.

It's nice with her in the camper if it's chilly out. She's a little heater when she's laying next to you. All in all she's a great cohort in crime out off road with me.

Re: post up your camping pics

sorry about your friend. my two dogs are real old now, one can hardly walk, and the other is diabetic, and can't see anymore. They both used to start whining when I opened the back door of my crewcab. they knew we were going somewhere. they could tell if it was the front or back door opening!

Re: post up your camping pics

thanks 3757chevy...i do miss him not kickin' around...

ya, it really bites when their short lives start winding down Crewcab, this is the "hard" time of K-9 ownership....
been three weeks since Dawg passed and had not planned on more dawgs till prob next month or so, but today i put my name on the rescue list for some ultra cute rottie/lab puppies that were found beside the highway...(grrr!!!)
there is one little girl in their that looks just like Diesel, it would be pretty fine if i could snag her!
Dawg was also a rottie/lab, also heard of some rescue mastiff x puppies (just like DixieLou!) but they are about 400 miles away- each way....

Rumble is the big one, he's a pyrennes/rotti/lab and growing at a crazy rate. he is 9 weeks old and 30lbs already- eats like a horse
near him is Moe, a 9 week chihuahua, and the close puppy is Roxie, she is a little over 7 week old rotti/lab, and a real cutie

Re: post up your camping pics

With a new Desert trip a month away, I finally started processing footage of the trip from last year. Here's the two I've got put together so far.

Re: post up your camping pics

Enjoyed the heck out of all three videos, guys. I’ll be web wheeling until my camper truck returns with another new transmission... I’m not paying for this one at least.

Re: post up your camping pics

We did a test run for a Desert trip last weekend. Here's a look at the highlights.

Re: post up your camping pics

My buddy's 8.1L/nv4500 powered M1009 on tons. It was the first major run on a frame up rebuild. It had a couple of teething issues, but nothing we couldn't manage.


Mud below 9500 ft, snow up to 11,500 ft. Higher we got, the deeper it got.





Then I hit a deep spot. High centered the whole thing on some glacial hard snow. Took the Jeep and Taco tied together to have enough holding power to winch me out of said hole.




Good prep run for the trip. I've got a couple of items to shore up in the camper to keep the rattles to a minimum.
