You realize you're going on a calendar next year don't you?

All I can say is WOW. Have you considered sending the photos to Bob Ward at Outfitter? I am sure he would be interested. I would also submit a couple to Gordon at TC magazine. One should be a shoo-in for next years calendar.

Those pictures are a testament as to what a Truck Camper is all about. lets see someone try that in a 5th wheel.

BTW my wife would have freaked if I tried to go up to a place like that. I am not sure I would attempt it in anything but a pop up, especially with drop offs like that. A low center of gravity is an advantage.

I always wondered why anyone would buy a truck camper. Now I know. Wonderful pictures!

...just when we thought no one could top what you'd accomplished on that mud-slung White Rim Trail, you did it yet again! It seems that those that follow in your foot-steps will never catch up...not in this life-time [emoticon]

I'll take some license here and agree with you that GM HD pickups with IFS are the absolute best for the worst offroad conditions you could imagine, with TC on board; forget and dump those heavy solid front axle pickup jobs. You're proving 'em wrong yet again buddy [emoticon] [emoticon]

More power to ya!!

The call of the wests gets louder and louder every time I see photos like yours. Thanks for sharing that adventure.

What a great report and photos. I can really appreciate your fearless expedition because I have jeeped all over Southeast Utah.

Ok, first I just put that place on my list of places to visit. Second, send that 5th and the 12th pics to Gordon at TC Magazine. One will be a shoe-in for next year's calendar.
