I don't know, but those might just be the best group of photos ever posted on the truck camper forum. Very nice photography. Thanks for posting.

That was GREAT.

Where do I send the money for the map?
I'm ready to go.


I (2-10-05) bought a 2002 F350 CC SWD PSD and a new 2003 Citation 10'8. Rancho 9000X, Superhitch, Wave 3 & Toyo M55's or Toyo 19.5's. I have been a tent camper all my life. I wanted more comfort while camping and doing my Crater Lake Ski Patrol duties.

Nice report as always.

One problem though:
"We were right as we watched one cowboy in a dually 4wheel flat bed WITH chains literally fight his way towards us, having already been to the end of the road 8 miles away."

Come on now, I have always heard here, and therefore that it is the truth, that all ranchers know duallies are terrible off road, in snow, on the ranch or anywehere else other than pavement which is why they all drive SRW. How could they have made it to the end of the road AND breaking trail? And wait, there's more: you both had chains on? We all know if you need chains, you should be at home!

Good work Whazoo!


Funny you say that BTG, and maybe you should tell this guy how screwed up he is, since you're the expert. He was as cowboy as you get, WITH Colorado plates. Kept popping his lower dentures out as we talked. Had stakesides with a big ol utility atv on the flatbed. Talked about getting buried to the axles in the snow and was the real reason we didn't "fight" to get where I wanted to go. If we hadn't met him I might still be there, waiting for spring! And no...I didn't have chains on. Didn't use them till I slid off road, twice, and that was enough for me. Besides, had I stayed home we wouldn't have had a great great time. That was the point!


Now you know I'm teasing whazoo...I am ALWAYS in favor of being out there and doing it, regardless of what you have and all the rest. More is how you use your equipment than what you have. You won't evert catch me busting someones chops for giving things a shot while everyone else is sitting in their armchair telling you what a fool you are, you can't do that etc. Well, I guess there's always the 40' 5th wheel trying to take on Engineer Pass or something, but you know what I mean. More power to you, and anyone else who challenges "common sense" from time to time.

Funny 'bout the Colorado plate. I remember hearing the Wyoming 'inside' joke when I lived there for a winter:

How do you tell when it's spring time in Wyoming?
When the plates start turning green! (as in all the CO plates showing up.)

Aw man, I was just about to delete my own post before you read that. I read to much into things sometimes and shoulda kept quiet, I apologize. I was hoping you were yankin my "chains."
And funny, all the plates in Arizona right now are from Michigan. Thought I'd moved or something.

That really was a fantastic post Dave. What a trip. I have also been to Muley Point and hiked Grand Gulch and Road Canyon in the area. It is hard to beat that part of Utah.
Thanks so much for the post, it makes me drool. I am returning there in the spring.

I hope you know you could frame some of these pictures and sell them in Moab. Do a photo book of the Southwest. Great pictures.
If I could talk my wife into going this time of year the only picture I would get is the back of my truck as she leaves me there.

Fantastic photos and report, I think I'm coming down with Whazooidus ( a itchy condition of ones feet after read a trip report by Whazoo). This has to be the best trip report you have done

Beautiful trip report.
Your picture taking is spot on.
Don't eat the yellow snow.
Do you know what the tower in the picture near the end was for?
