Spent the holiday weekend camping in two different spots around Mormon Lake. The weather was great, with the exception of about 5 hours or rainfall on Saturday. It was so nice to get away from the triple digit heat of Phoenix. This was also the maiden voyage of my CVT Mt. Rainier roof top tent. I love it!
I got my air deflector wrapped today. I think it turned out pretty good.
The GF and I spent a long weekend checking out the OX2015 event and camping up on the rim in Sedona, AZ. Way too much rain/hail/snow, but it was still pretty awesome.
I finally got my Rhino Rack Foxwing awning mount to the truck for my next camping trip.
I installed a PrinSu Design Studios Cabrac recently. This allows me to clear out the area behind me rear seat and put stuff on the roof.
Spent 3 days and 2 nights up on the rim above Sedona. We took FR153a off Schnebly Hill Rd. and went about a mile or so down the rim. We had a great time!
The GF and I cruised up the Jerome the other day. We took the scenic route via Wickenburg, Yarnell, and Prescott. It was a lot of fun.
The GF and I jumped in her Toyota 4Runner and took a nice 4 Day weekend up north recently. We went to the 2014 Overland Expo West at Mormon Lake on Saturday and stayed the night. We had a wonderful time driving $100k Land Rovers on the off-road course and talking to worldly travelers like Dan and cool vendors like Bobby. We brought food to cook over a fire, but all of Coconino county is under a fire restriction, so that sucked. We ended up eating some great food from some of the food trucks on site. The next day, we drove up to Flagstaff and had breakfast, then drove further north to visit the Lava River Cave. That was fun and I’d like to go visit again someday. I’m hoping to spend the whole weekend at the Overland Expo next year and partake of the many seminars and classes they offer.
The GF and I took a 3 day camping trip to Sheep Bridge. We had a great time and it was nice to get away from it all. We took N. Seven Springs Rd. (FR-24) from N. Phx, all the way up to Bloody Basin Rd. (FR-269), then headed East until we hit the bridge. We scored a nice spot just South of the bridge. It was just a little too warm during the day (make sure you have an awning or some type of shade!) and quite cold at night. All in all, we had a really good time. The only negative was a convoy of Jeeps that came through on Sunday afternoon. They were there to party and we had to listen to their bass bumping music for about 3-4 hours before they finally left. Seriously, if you go overland to places like sheep bridge, or other areas where there are people camping in the area, don’t be an asshole and bump your stereo loudly for hours on end. Other campers are out there to get away from noise like that… Anyhow, we intended to take FR-269 all the way back to I-17, but we got a flat tire right away on our way out. So we decided to be prudent and take FR-24 back from Bloody Basin, since it was a shorter distance back to civilization (and road side service should we need it).
