I thought I heard something faint once. Maybe that was you?

I basically just called out "KD0DHI monitoring" every time I heard chatter.

That trip looks awesome. I'd love to head out there some day, but it would probably take me 3 days in the FJ40 cruising at 55 MPH...

Did I miss anything?
Engine cooking, hot chili, warm apple pie, 8,000 year old rock art, fossilized treeroots, 100 miles of dirt road to get to campsite, pet Perry, Pink Floyd concert, free dope.

Lessons learned....
-Don't pack bottles of beer on their sides in your fridge, or you will have 14 beers empty when you arrive. If I was an 80, probably fine, but a 40 with 2" of travel, no.
-Feed Perry often
-Trail braking at 50mph in a curve is a bad idea in a shortie on hard pack roads. Extra pleats in my seat now.
-I don't need extra fuel for this trip so don't pack 2 fuel cans.
-Blue Rhino is not the same as a blue flame.
-Bring a pair of chains for at least one truck in the group....not really necessary but conditions just a touch different and we could have used them.
-Just carrying a spot receiver is not the same as pushing the BUTTON.
-there is hot chili, then there is HOT chili. Shazzam. My face wasn't the only thing burning.

All good, but that shot of Barry descending rocks is perfect!
