Default Operation 4runner swap.

This past weekend, while some of you guys were wheeling Bill Moore Lake, Treeroot and I headed down to Proffitt's. Goal. Pick up new 4runner.

We had lunch in Glenwood Springs, traffic was terrible heading back towards I-70. So we changed plans and headed into Delta via McClure Pass. JP was not at the shop but Eddie showed Treeroot around a bit. We headed out after not really having a plan. Finally found camp near Blue Mesa Res. Westin Pass Sunday to get to South Park and our end goal of the Cabin. Perfect fall weather. 4runner ran great. Thanks 'Root for tagging along!

Dan, great to hear you on the Ham, and out on the trail!

Hey Perry and Mike. It was cool speaking on the HAM while we were on Bill Moore Lake trail with Jeff Zepp and our crew that day. Good to here you guys had a great weekend. But the most interesting to me is the way you two float with what is thrown at you. Anything can change and you guys always say ok what will we do instead.....Then you make it awesome.
