Joe,

Great story! Great video! You really got the sound of the wind well.

I think you and I camped in the same site. The Tiger was very happy there. No meth heads, just lots of Lost Coast backpackers. I would have walked the labyrinth on the beach, but it was too windy.

The Tiger took the road well, although the 8.1 L engine and the Allison transmission and the driver's nerves all got a good workout.

Would I go again? In a heartbeat!

Here's a closeup of the road, so you all know what Joe means:

Here's the Tiger in camp (no drain hose; it has a holding tank):

The old KIT has one combined holding tank, and by that point it hadn't been emptied yet. Had I switched it so I could have dumped to the tank, I would not have been able to safely use diverter without doing a dump, as urine would have had a chance to run out on the ground. As it stood, we didn't dump the holding tank until the second to last day. The final contents from that trip actually didn't get dumped off until last week when I went to Nehalem.

Judging from the pictures, I say we definitely were in the same site, there was a small path between the bushes from the site next door into that one, which is how I got the trailer where it was, I pulled through like a loop, disconnected the trailer then flipped the truck and camper around.
