thats a great writeup

Romer's looks really comfy, looks like there is a place to stand up and change, etc before climbing into bed...I bet its even better in cold and or wet weather with a small heater.

Anyhow...hoping for good weather for CM, back to the pics

Default Safe trip.

Dr. Schlegs: Thanks for cooking MEAT and your big smiles on the trail.
All mini truck drivers: Go check your left front frame around where your front spring hanger attaches. All 3 of us had cracked/broken frames up there.
Area BFE is nice. Here are a few blackberry pictures:

yes it was. I was real happy with it. Very comfortable, quick to setup and the changing room is a nice feature. It's nice to be able to climb down the bed ladder inside your enclosure. I also had plenty of room for two chairs a table and my duffle bag.

[quote=Chris sandstorm FJ;142360]That was super fun!

I forgot my camera, I am glad you guys didn't..here are a few from my BlackBerry phone..

When we pulled out to do Kane Creek on Saturday, these guys were getting ready to hit BFE..This might be the coolest Toyota I have ever seen. There were two more smaller versions but I did not get a pick of them.

That rig is aboslutely radical. Here is some info from Pirate on it for those interested in such rigs. Check it out with the FJ45 skins on it

Did the tow rig have Kanook plates on it? That looks like Rutledges Twisted Custom creation. He picked it up last year at BHCC from them. Beautiful! He was pulling it around with a custom Mog at that time.
