Packed and ready to go camping. Finally able to use my Whynter Fridge. Plan on using a 300w power station to keep it running at night and using solar panels to charge the battery during the day. Can't wait to hit the mountain!

Today a trip to the dentist for a future implant but over the weekend we purchased a new trailer and
Trailer.PNG took Hwy 2 East to 97 North to 20 East to Aeneas Valley & another 8 miles to the Cabin.

Hwy 20 West, 97 South to 17 South to 395 West to Richland.

Richland to Lake Stevens WA with 30 sheets of metal siding on the trailer. Was really happy with the towing experience, set cruise control at 75 and only had to downshift twice to 5th gear pulling some bigger hills and up the pass. Started out with a never seen 18.75 MPG on first tank, this was short lived with the wind and the increased payload on home stretch.
In addition this road trip tested out the spacers added to the driver seat rear location bringing the seat into a more level stance, this seems to fixed the issue I was having with shooting hip pain and lumbar discomfort.:alien:
This I figured saved me at least 3K when I was considering Scheel-mann or Ricarro seats. So I purchased a upgrade to the stereo & DD LED replacement bulbs and rationalized to the wife that I was saving money! I learned this from her...;)FJ Cruiser - OEM Audio Plus

Bozeman to Salmon ID.
Some of the nicest scenery I've driven through. Staying in a shack 20 ft from the Salmon river with mountain view. Will be mixing time on horses, dirt bike and FJ. View attachment 1133579

That is a really nice drive. I used drive through there on my trips up to N ID to visit family. One year in July we were stopped at the top of the pass on the border of MT and ID waiting for the pilot car because of construction and it started snowing.

Just got from camping at crab Flats campground in California. Hit dishpan springs. Encountered the half way point and huge boulders going down. Super technical at that point but didn't want to chance it since I was solo. Decided to head back just to be safe. But looked fun! My soul was refreshed being in the mountains!
