Had a great time last weekend camping and jeeping with some friends. We had 8 Jeeps and covered 84 miles of back roads. The flurries weren’t ideal but we still had a blast!

  Thanks for sharing your outing with us. Looks like you all had a good time.

  What power plant is in the orange pick up truck?

I wish there were some other Jeepers around here, but so far, I haven't met any.
If you can't get there in a Jeep you don't need to be there

Seeing the old Coleman stove makes me remember a lot of camping trips. 

The smell of a Coleman stove, with meat and onions frying, or a couple of nice trout filets crisping up to a nice brown decadence, combined with the smell of the damp woods and a river, is what it made me think of.

I was fortunate to be on this trip. It was a blast. Cool jeeps, great guys and beautiful scenery too. I actually was able to use the floodlight I installed to illuminate my camp. Very handy to have Smile

I finally have a few minuets to review the photos and videos from last weekend's trip. 
 
What a great time!  I got to spend time with some old friends and meet some new ones - help an awesome young man learn some scouting skills - put my most recent jeep mods to the test - and spend some time in a beautiful part of the country that brought back many memories of growing up in the mountains.

Many thanks to Seth for putting this all together!  

The videos you guys put together are great!  I attempted to get some video while driving but found that steering, shifting, and working the windshield wipers took all the coordination I could muster - good thing I wasn't trying to chew gum at the same time!LOL  The best I can contribute are photos of all my buddies from the trip.  Thanks for having me along guys - already looking forward to the next ride!

That's the whole reason for owning one of these classics.  I can't wait to get mine back on the road to do this too.  Just need to get a few more Jeepers together in my area.  Great video!
I wish people would quit hittin' me on the head. MQ
