    So, I went for a one-nighter on Sunday night. It was pretty uneventful. Drove there, stayed a night, and drove back.

    My parents and my brother came. I had a camper site and a cabin site next to it for my parents. My brother rented the cabin next to it, because he did not want to hear snoring.

    My Dodge Nitro pulled the RV with no problems. The wind and the passing cars pushed it/me around, so I stayed in the 60-65 range the whole way.

    On the way back, I stopped to get gas and it turned out to be bad gas, with too much water in it. Now I am going to change spark plugs tonight because of issues from that. Fuck Chevron.

    Also, we went camping in Idaho next to the Snake river. I am thinking about Oregon next.

    I know this is not action packed greatness, but it is hard to reach that point with three little kids.

    i did not

    i'm a motel 6 gal.
    though i've slept outside, i have actually never been camping


    if you're gonna tick off national parks, and jesus, you named all the best states for them (i can't wait to go to Arches and Zion in UT) get a National Park Pass.
    that said, i have no clue how national parks and RVs work together, but when i'm in the parks, i see plenty of people driving them

    Saw a deer last night. It came right up to the camp, but it was too dark to get the pic. Enjoy the pic of the eyes.

    I am planning on hitting up the national parks. The one that is close to me, I drove thru it today, is free.

    If you ever get to this part if the country, let me know.

    I saw in that website, that there is a military deal. I need to hit that up before I retire.

    got back into town from a long fucking drive on sunday...just getting the photo's uploaded.

    The trailer is a 2013 Tailwind 10' tandem axle and right now it is at about 40% of where I want it to be in terms of the build. I am planning on a two year build, and Im about 4 months in. I use it every weekend so it's comfortable for the girl me and the dog. I quickly added some temporary shelving right now, it's ugly but it works, all I have in terms of wood tools is a skill saw and everything has been done with that thus far. Its parked in a carport and thats where I can work on it - Its getting a full set of cabinets and drawers for holding firearms and ammo - food chainsaw and all my shit.

    So what I wanted:

    Small, tandem axle and a place to put all my shit and the bikes. I wanted a bed, and warmth. So far I have it and I have great sleeps in the bush.

    Modifications from stock:

    It came as a plywood skinned interior with two lights on the ceiling. It had a vent as well and I have done the following.

    commercial grade vinyl flooring
    e track inset into the sub floor
    spray foam insulation
    added a slider window
    wall panneling on top of insulated walls and ceiling
    Solar Panel
    optima deep cycle blue top battery
    Blue see master breaker
    blue sea fuse block
    blue sea negative bus bar
    queen size bed foam mattress that folds up to the wall
    western red cedar trims / baseboard
    3rd aux interior light for the back portion

    What I have that is not installed:

    LED puck lights for the workspace / counter top
    quick fist mounts for guns, compressed air, fire extinguisher and misc stuff
    LED light bar for back
    LED work lights for outside the man door
    other shit I am forgetting

    I was drunk when I took pics so forgive me

    Here is the cluster fuck of shelving and some of the shit that goes with us. Not all of that crap is mine, my buddys stuff is all stowed away there too.

    [​IMG]

    This is what the bed looks like when folded down, I keep the shotgun beside me with slugs in case of bears.

    [​IMG]

    When you arrive and get drunk you then have to rifle shit outside to make room for the bed. This will change when I build the cabinet for most of the stuff that can stay inside.

    for all the pigs - pack of bacon in the pan.
