I know where you can get a really good deal on one that needs a little bit of work and would be perfect for you...trailer included...seller willing to finance...

That would be awesome if froader got your rig. The driver seat seat might have to get moved a bit though.

Glad to see you guy's had a safe and great time. Looking foward to the next trip. I really need an offroad fix.

Hey Bill, good to see you could make it. I haven't seen you in awhile.

Rigs are all looking good. Amazing the changes in the last 10 years when 33's were monster tires.

Just got back. Hope everyone made it home alright.

Fun trip, not a lot of camper. But a good turn out for the day run. Nobody broke too bad and no one tolled or layed it on the side. It was cool having a sport trac in the group.

Glad everyone made it out that could, even if you didn't bring a rig it was cool to see y'all again.

Potluck had a nice amount of food for everyone there. Good burgers, chile verde w meat, brats, tamales, cake, pie, etc.

Now it's time to find a drive shaft for the toyota and a spindle for the Navajo

My brother-in-law and i had a great time out there this weekend, it's been a while since i've been to truckhaven. On the runs we did in the washes, he kept saying how he drives like that in video games, but didn't think people did that in real life. He definitely wants to attend more trips. Thanks again Ted for letting us ride with you and for getting us back to camp on time Saturday. Robbie, sorry we didn't get a wash run in with you, after Zombieland ended Friday night we turned around and almost everyone had disappeared to their tents, haha. You should come out to Barstow with us in 3 weeks. And it was great meeting some new people out there, i unfortunately don't think i met John Stone, but seeing your truck in action finally was cool! I'll get pics and vids up later on or tomorrow.

BTW... Got home to another flat! As soon as I pulled in I saw that Char had a flat rear tire on her 'yota :( Went to put the temporary spare on, and it's screwed too... Missing a chunk of the tread and the carcass is visible. Two new tires are in order for the 'yota now. :banghead:

Just made it home. 9 hour drive back wasnt so bad this time. I did stop to drop off my nephew and his friend and i stopped at the truck stop outside tucson to weigh the van/trailer/x combo. With just me in it, it weighed in at 13800 lbs.

Was a great trip. Ill get pics and the other video up tomorrow.

I'm stoked for all you guys that were able to go this weekend! I wish that I could have been there! Hopefully next year I will be able to make the trip with you guys! Take it easy everyone and cheers to a weekend of good wheeling and probably some new friendships!
