Sweet trip Dave. Thanks for posting up all the great pics. I'm going to have to plan a trip up there soon.

How did your family enjoy the trip?

It was good to finally meet you guys in person if only for a few minutes. I also got to meet Robert and spend some time with Brad (TucsonT4R) on my trip out west. This trip with Tim and Allison, and having my family with me was just icing on the cake.

.....I think all the pics are now up

peace out!!


Nice meeting you and the Family Dave, and nice meeting Tim and Allison...if only for a few minutes.

Once again, great beautiful pictures Dave!!!

Don't forget your/my bumper!!!

Thanks, it really was. I think it's a definite that I'm moving out west once I retire from the military, just not sure where yet.

Looks like a fantasic trip.

Did you guys notice a significant difference in the tail dragging between the stock bumper cover and the steel bumper?

I didn't. I have better clearance than I did before. I don't think my rear bumper ever hit, I think TIm hit once or twice (just the shackle) but mine is a little taller due to the BL and slightly bigger tires. .....but we're getting ready to do the BL on Tim's and tires so they'll be about the same i think.
