On the BRPW 9/5/2011, our 25th anniversary meal, I wouldn't have traded for the finest restaurant on earth.
Thanks you two for the report, it takes me back to 02 when I had my family out there, being among those giants is the most spiritual spot I have been outside the church walls, and on some days when the sun shines through just right even more so.
It is a wonderful place, and I understand what you are saying about Yosemite being loved to death......and it is ashamed.
from what I have seen you have more room in a wet bath than a dry ( in truck campers).
or maybe it's just mine, but my 03 Lance slide has a dry bath, I wish it was a wet bath, because there is almost no room in the shower and we are smaller people.....I didn't say limber....just small.
Gleno jones lake camp ground (Saline co. conservancy district) a nice lake and some good hiking along the ridge trail.
Pounds Hallow State Park, 3 weeks ago we were the (only) campers in the entire camp ground for the 4 days we were there, that is really nice for piece and quiet, also a nice small lake along with some of the most scenic hiking in the Shawnee forest.
We have a 13.5 tandem Pamlico Wilderness systems, we stand it up on end the wife will hold it over a bit and I climb on top then we use the ladder as guild runners and I pull and she pushes until she cant reach, by then it's far enough for me just to pull on up, I use the foam pad kayak things you can get and use motorcycle tie downs to secure it, it works well......our kayak weighs 75lb empty and probably 90 with the add on things we have, I have a splash deck, paddle holders, both paddles, life vests, pump, and some other small things.
Setting up an old truck/camper unit is the only thing that would make me sell my current rig, I think they so much cooler than laying down $60-100k on new stuff.
I love any make from the 70's down, but something in the 60's would be my pick.
that truck is in really nice condition, and is going to look sweet.
I will promise you won't be able to fuel up with out someone walking over to take a look at it.
We moved back to our level night camp... about half way between highway traffic along US-60 and the barge traffic.
hope you don't mind "barging" in to your report Mr. Chet, but we pulled in to St Albans on your advice and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was, we had a nice walk down the river and a nice nights stay, thanks again and we will be there again on our next trip east.
We knew September on the BRPW would be risky, but like you said it's nice to just snuggle in and listen to it rain, luckily only 2 days of rain in 18, but those rainy super fogy nights when we took our last stroll around the CG before bed were very spooky.
