    My Journey

    Ace, JD, & Foy.....yes, I would definitely head south. What I've noticed about myself is that I enjoy the beginning and end of winters, but I'm not interested in living through an entire winter in the Rockies. The neighbors nearby, from where I'm camped, told me about this guy that bought...

    My Journey

    Greg.....so you get it that there's a lot of extra work to the lifestyle. I think that's why I enjoyed traveling for 5 or 6 months and then returning to a home and having a rest. I just have to find the right place to settle down. Yesterday I was camped near a 9 acre parcel of land that's up for...

    My Journey

    Ace.....I can honestly say that most everything had bullet holes in it. I'm not sure that I've ever seen so much destruction from gunshot. Did you notice that both of the state welcome signs were full of bullet holes ? Another thing I can say is that I was always uncomfortable walking out into...

    My Journey

    The headstones were interesting..... After filling our stomachs with lunch and checking out the old cemetery, we turned and finally headed north again rather than in a westerly direction, and eventually departed Utah after a wonderful three weeks of exploring the beautiful state of Utah...

    Mccaf.....thanks for posting. I checked out the videos as I'm sure plenty of others did as well. I find peoples fascination with trains interesting.....such as Ken the tramp, and I assume you as well. I know I felt fortunate to happen upon that event..... One thing that just amazed me about...

    My Journey

    And that spot was called Monument Point.....about as far to the northwest as you could go and still access the Great Salt Lake..... I stepped out of the truck to survey a possible place to camp for a few nights. No more than one hundred feet from the truck I encountered this snake...

    My Journey

    Sierra Valley.....the trains were cool. The first four train pictures that I posted were taken Thursday evening when I initially passed through. As you can see if you look closer theres nobody nearby. The following day (during the event) the trains were roped off, and off limits due to the large...

    Ace / OverlandNA / Foy / ITTOG / PNWY / JD / furbucket.....thanks for chiming in and offering the opinions. It's interesting for me to read others thoughts and ideas. I do appreciate that. I was thinking this morning how it is that so many people are inspired to travel due to the thousands of...

    DWH.....I didn't have any issues with your post (I liked it just now). Seriously, you answered Arjans questions perfectly which I had no idea how to do (obviously). When it comes to most anything technical, or that requires a brain, I'm pretty much lost. You are the man when it comes to that...

    My Journey

    The salt in the water gives a reddish tone to the waters surface..... Just to the north of the lakes edge is a small mountain.....no doubt about it.....this was my favorite place to hang out..... For me it was the views.....for the dogs it was whatever crawled around in that tall...

    My Journey

    DWH.....I bought the 6,500 lb. rated Blue Ox tow hitch that you linked to go along with the Renegade motorhome that I purchased last year but when I made the switch back to the pickup truck we couldn't make it work. I left it in the Renegade..... DWH / Vintageracer.....I own a brake system very...

    My Journey

    Now I'll have to admit that I wasn't paying too much attention to the landscape that surrounded the gravel road into the hot springs.....all that was on my mind at that time was soaking in a natural hot spring. But the drive back out on Diamond Fork Road to Highway 89 was truly magnificent...

    My Journey

    Arjan.....not too sure what I can say about that trailer hitch. Traveling Europeans are checking that hitch out from time to time and they've mentioned to me in the past that it's not used in Europe. It's so simple as it just flips up and down. When in the up position it has two pins that hold...

    My Journey

    It was "climbers mecca" that brought me to Maple Canyon and I shouldn't move on from here without at least sharing a few pictures of some of the climbers on the big walls of the canyon..... I clearly remember sitting below the base of the wall leaned up against the rough bark of a big ole...

    My Journey

    The following morning we got a fairly early start and hiked up the Left Fork Trail (3.2 miles roundtrip)..... With the slowly rising temperatures the snow melt was creating numerous small waterfalls along the way..... Later in the day we hiked the Middle Fork Trail (3.2 miles...

    The Road Chose Me: Driving a Jeep Wrangler 80,000 miles around Africa for 2 years

    I've spent many mornings in my camper with my hot mug of coffee following your travels & adventures around Africa. It's been great and I too wanted to thank you for taking the time and making the effort to share with all of us.....

    My Journey

    From here the plan was to go Walmart shopping in Richfield, Utah but the trucks GPS had different plans for us and before I realized the errors of its ways I was ten miles north of Richfield so rather than backtrack I continued north and finally made my Walmart stop in Ephraim, Utah..... Now...
