Nice and simple. Like it! Do any climbing there are Seneca or were you forest road exploring?
Thanks! We did get out and do some hiking and exploring, so many neat things to see down in that area. We saw some rock climbers doing their thing but you couldn't pay me to climb that high! Off the top of my head we checked out Seneca Rocks, Spruce Knob, Blackwater Falls, Cass Scenic Railroad, did the Canaan Loop and checked out some giant radio telescope thing.


I've made some changes to my Jeep and trailer. I put a swing-away spare tire carrier on the Jeep to allow a drop-down tailgate. Got an off-brand 6x8' (approx.) awning on the Jeep's Surco roof rack. Jeep is a 98 TJ four cylinder/five-speed/3.5" lift/4.88 gears Dana 30/44 with lockers f&r/33" tires on 16" rims.

The trailer is a home-built off a highly-modified HF (type) 4' trailer frame. Tongue's been extended, suspension swapped out, 3500lb axle, 235/75/15" tires, electric brakes,
