Love the picture of that fire in particular.

Gerry - that was the classic stump fire! We'd all brought some firewood with us, as that area doesn't have many trees, not a lot of natural firewood available. Mostly just brush.

However, when we pulled into the camping area, we noticed one old tree had been cut, and several big sections were right there... PERFECT for a long-burning fire! We started the campfire late in the afternoon, about the time the sun dipped below the ridge. Kept the fire burning right against the side of the large log, and it burned all night long in the snow! Next morning it was still plenty warm!

Looks to have been a great time of enjoying the mountains. At what elevation were you camping?

Pretty low Mike, no more than 3,000 feet ASL.

I asked because the snow pack didn't look to be that great. Was this a year of low snow pack? We certainly haven't had the snow that we would normally expect.

We're way above average. Last year, that canyon was virtually snow-free.

Up high, here in Washington, there's a LOT of snow.

Guy,

Are you going to Moab for Easter?

No. This is the 50th anniversary of the Easter Jeep Jamboree, and huge numbers of jeepers are expected in town. I'm not sure Moab has a very good idea how many are coming. 10,000? 20,000? And it's going to be a PARTY... :)

Fun perhaps, but not the sort of thing I enjoy.

Some friends and I are going to go poking around a real remote chunk of Utah, in 2017, with 300 miles between fuel stops. Also have a long "overlanding" trip to make in central Oregon this coming summer, making additional fuel a really good idea.

Guy

I think you might need a trip down here we can take you up to the snow in the Jeep drop you off and I'll come pick you back up when the snow melts. Then you can tell me when it stops snowing!!!

By the way I think it's snowing on Mt Lewis right now 43 and raining @ 4600 ft I wonder what it's doing up around 10k?

Great pictures Jake. A new Jeep is on my retirement list!

Great pictures Guy, you definitely don't help my need of getting a new rig.

A vehicle approved by Clark carries a lot of weight. But, why isn't he operating the winch rather than driving?

Should prove to be quite an improvement for my longer duration hunting & fishing trips. :)

Trailer is a Jackwagon Basecamp. www.jackwagonoffroad.com

Very nicely built. I picked it up today, lightly used and in excellent condition. Has trailer brakes, so had to wire the Jeep for that. After stacking three deer carcasses in the back of the Jeep... I knew I needed more room... :)

Handy looking outfit. That should extend your comfort by quite a bit, Guy.

Guy, they seem to fit together well (y) I am sure that will take care of your over crowding problem :wink:.

Blessings,

Me too Scotty. Have had one on every vehicle I've owned since about 1980 or so, or whenever I first found those in the PX.

As a young Marine, before the HMMWV's replaced the "Mutt" which was the military version of the Jeep in those days.

Our Jeeps all went afield with a trailer. There was no room in the Jeep for adequate supplies of food, ammo, water, etc... So, each Jeep towed a trailer. This is just an updated version of that practice.

We towed a trailer all the way from Kuwait to Baghdad on the back of our HMMWV with all of our team crap in it. I'd love to have one for my truck these days. They were some kinda solid.
