    I have no style! I've been out of tenting it for better that a decade, when I moved to Vermont it's been Vt. State Park leantu kind of thang! I know call me an " Elitist ",

    but I really miss the TENT!

    I'll need to upgrade my sleeping bag/tent to the 21st century, so I'm off to the Gear section for ideas!

    I'm disabled from a work injury & find that a hammock suits me best, all I need is 2 trees or the back of my rig & an anchor

    From a recent trip north. This is a state site at Ragged lake. Tent is a MSR Hubba Bubba 2 person. I was pretty comfortable in my 20*F down sleeping bag and 3" thick air mattress. Temps where in the lower 40s that night.

    So as a way of intro (beyond the "new member" intro post) I wanted to post up some pics of places I/we have been. Will include some of ME (my favorite state), NH and am including some from CO just cause I like them! ha! With three kids and a dog I am glad we have the Yukon. As you will see from some of these pics I need every bit of space I have.  Shocked And even that's not enough some times.   Rolling Eyes But its fun. Nothing like being in the woods.

    Camping in NH

    NMW

    We call this place Beer Bridge. Coming from MA is always a hike and this bridge on the Telos Rd offers a great spot to stop and brush the dust off.....well....before we put some dust on.  Laughing

    Obligatory West Branch shot from the bridge

    Gotta love logging roads. Note the bug repellent on the dash.  Laughing 

    Logging Road photo 100_1732.jpg

    My favorite campsite in the NMW. The guys are getting the fire going obviously.

    Island Pond2 photo 000_0024.jpg

    A beautiful little FFO pond north of Moosehead that I float tubed with my buddy. Too bad it was as wet above the water as it was in the water.

    Camping on the shore of Moosehead

    Hurricane Pass

        Campin' - Page 2 P7100255ri1

    Road? Yeah this is a road....well....sort of. My wife being on the downhill side wanted to argue the point a bit!

        Campin' - Page 2 P7090141gt0

    Ophir Pass on the way to Alta. You will notice a white thing down the hill from the road in the lower middle of the shot. That's a camper shell from a pick-up that didn't navigate the road. They pulled the truck out but left the shell behind. Maybe as a warning to watch the road not the view.   Evil or Very Mad 

        Campin' - Page 2 P7090054bdf7

    Near the ghost town of Alta. As beautiful as this is I have a whole new appreciation for miners working this ground in the winter.

    Oh...I saw mention of BBQ so have to throw this in. Mmmmmmm.....pulled pork!  bounce 

    Take one of these (with rub)

    Add lots of this....

    Smoker Smoking photo Smokersmoking.jpg

    And you get this!

    Pass me some SAUCE!  Laughing 

    Anyway.....those are some pics of places I've been. Will post more as more adventures occur! If I can answer any questions fire away!

    Really neat trailer! Custom build? It certainly appears to "spread out" in a quick hurry which makes for a tedious setup and teardown. The real benefit I see to these is the "base camp" aspect. Once you set it up, you can leave for day excursions in your tow/adventure rig without having to pack back up. My van is excellent for a relatively fast arrival and departure given that everything is pretty much built in, but once we're set up for the evening (or weekend), we're pretty much stuck. I've considered a small 50cc scooter on a rear hitch carrier just to allow us limited mobility without packing everything back up to go into town or to get to a day-trip spot.

    Thanks!

    I built it myself out of a military trailer...took about 9 months.  I'll do a build thread on it if folks want to see it.

    It is a bear to do a full set up, although I've done it a bunch of times...so I guess I'm used to it

    The next one will be easier to set up...that I can promise! lol!

    Hey.....I am impressed as hell but room enough to keep your firewood dry? Holy ****. LOL Really great set-up. But yeah I can see this is not for an overnight here and next night somewhere else for sure. But I have to believe coming back to that when you're cold and wet is a dream. Good for you! And thanks for sharing the pics!

    I was a Backcountry Ranger for 2 years in the Whites (saco district) So when camping with the trucks, I'm generally more concerned with comfort Very Happy
