Best post ever! Thanks for the photos and story. And, I envy your bravery for putting your GMC through the paces of rock crawling. I'd be too scared to break something and be stranded. Looks like alot of fun!

Thanks so much! Every time I read one of these, I want to go there. Badly.

Great, great pictures, and fun to read. You made my morning. Now I just need to find some motivation to go back to work...

Outstanding! Just simply amazing, and yet, just another normal report from Whazoo.

Great 4 X 4 action shots. Well done sir!

Gee Wiz Dave!
I don’t know what to say about the road going in with all the washouts.
You’re either the Macho Macho Man the Village People sang about or you’re ready for a white suit and a padded room. Hope the dings on the camper aren’t a big deal. Either way, nice job on negotiating the road. The trip and pictures were a lot of fun to look through and follow.
Take care.

Goooood morning Whaaaaaazoooo!

Man, this is the 1st instance of technical rock-crawling I've ever seen with a fairly large truck camper aboard a heavy-duty truck !

I would say "outstanding", however, I'll say, "out-crawling!" Unbelievable what the 2500HD GMC/Chevy can do with this extremely robust front-end IFS [emoticon] Now, I wanna see a Ford F250/F350 do that with a 2800+ LB camper on-board (is that a challenge? You bet! But you Ford guys better bring along some spare parts) [emoticon]

.....now that star photo is great, and shows a satellite streaking across the top-center during the extended exposure. Well executed!

You just made my day(or better, my week). I thoroughly enjoyed the humor. Mrs Silverdunes is out shoveling the near foot of snow we got overnight, but she certainly will be reading through your expedition report when she comes in!

Excellent work Lynn & Dave,

Whazoo . Great photos and special effects. You really make trip report interesting. Just a question do you mainly stick to the more Arid parts of the US like Utah, Arizona and Nevada?

Awesome, amazing, fabulous, wonderful, what to say ? Thanks Dave for this magical moment.

Question : would you like that I reseve the Hall or Mirror in Versailles Castle for the official presentation of the Whazoo's desert collection ? [emoticon]
