      Truckhaven is a huge playground for off-road vehicles. There are trails for everyone from mild to wild. This is a great place to test your driving abilities as well as the capabilities of your Explorer.

      Saturday night we will be having a potluck dinner with a twist. Everyone should bring their own meat and beverages, but also bring a side dish or desert for all to share. The potluck has been a lot of fun and very tasty in the past!

      Bring your own cooking supplies if you can. You can probably share someone else's grill if you don't have one.

      This area is primitive camping. There are NO TOILET FACILITIES ON SITE. Public restrooms are located about 5 miles from camp.

      Weather conditions in October usually consist of warm days and cool to cold nights, rain can be present at this time of year and high winds and cold nights are always possible. Come prepared and please bring FIREWOOD!!

      We really want to go. I Just go my axle back from Rob Thomas Differential so I will be putting it back on soon. The axle was bent up and back so it had to be straightened and the tubes welded to the center section.

      As long as it doesn't have a 1000 watt stereo that plays only Mexican polka, and then only from 10Pm to 4AM, that should be alright.

      This is a little premature, but are we camping up on the new mesa?

      This looks increasingly inviting and I feel inclined to invert my inscrutable indifference.
