    Thanks! No idea on weight, definitely 500+. Truck handled the load like a champ. The heavy duty leaf pack (2 extra leafs) takes 1000lbs on the back without issue. We are very fortunate here, no issues at all related to flooding. Merrit and princeton are really having a tough go of it. The hwys...

    Before our next trip I had some maintenance issues to resolve. Another Cv bit the dust... New unit in. Every time I repair this front it's a kick in the ass to get going on the solid axle swap. Slip yoke is still bypassing fluid. I either need to find an oe offset seal, or a new slip...

    First light the next morning. Letting the truck warm up for a moment. Can't beat this scenery in my opinion Another moosy morning Found this spot where two bulls were fighting the night before. The snow was completely torn up and moose hair was everywhere. Couldn't beat the blue bird...

    ^ I can't say I've ever heard of that. I know in extreme cases they will lose their hair and look like "ghosts" Just finished up another 4 day hunting trip. Picked up some treats the day before. 60lbs of Moose jalepeno cheddar smokies & pepperoni. Repairing a repair, this seal failed almost...

    Just wanted to add, 4 days of rain, and freezing temps at night. The entire time we were thankful for two things, the hard shell and the diesel heater. This would have been a miserable experience in a tent. Absolutely love this set up at the moment.

    Did some more spring mushroom scouting. Mushrooms are already starting to pop up Lots of fresh veg starting to pop up as well Hard to give perspective on the size of some of these fires. This one was 81,000 hectares. Ended our trip by spotting this brute.

    ^^The tape works awesome. The biggest help is running the diesel heater full time on those cold nights. It dries out the air and gets rid of any humidity that causes sweating. The combo of the two has been winning a formula. Just wrapped up another 4 day trip hunting Before we left the truck...

    Yes all of the snow has been 1200m+ elevation. Nothing in the valley yet. Definitely have to reassure myself I'm the predator when I see big bears and cats. Something about camping in total darkness in the forest that makes a lot of noise to get you on your toes. No doubt, last season I had a...

    Last post, Couple of maintenance items. I've fallen off the bumper getting out of the truck more times than I care to admit. So I fabbed up this little grip step that works awesome. Cut some notches in it for extra traction. This was a safety issue more than anything. That chrome bumper with...
