Did you really need the chains? Why do you have your windsheild wipers folded out?


Yes it's R2, chains required.

Blades stick to glass, lift to avoid problems.


What is R2?

Mooney, BEAUTIFUL!!
I was "supposed" to be there tomorrow (the 27th) HOWEVER I am SNOWED IN AT HOME!!! I was supposed to fly to Davis to be with family and then we were going to take a road trip with 12 people in 3 vehicles (no RVs..:-( to Yosemite (Curry Village), then down to Vegas and then the Grand Canyon. Well, the snow (over 3 1/2') and then snow/ice/mudslide in my neighborhood here in Crestline has stopped that. I missed my flight and will now be flying to Las Vegas on Monday to meet up with the group. I have spent a number of winters camping in Yosemite through the years and will miss it. Enjoy it for both of us, ok? Oh, and I miss my old Lance.... I would not even attempt to pull my travel trailer there. It's under ice right now....

Mooney

I am headed there mid January. Couple of questions---

Chains--R2---> Isn't your truck 4x4? If so, then do you woundn't need chains.

What highway did you take? I am coming up the 99--and the shortest is the 41, but I have read a few post about the 140 is a better route.

Battery--I have a Lance with generator. The lance has 1 battery. I am thing of adding another one to the rear bumper area. What do you think?

Great pictures!!!Any suggesiton on places to hike or see in the winter??? Hope there will be some snow when we get there.

Your pictures are beautiful, especially the one with the sun along the top of the cliffs. You should definitely send it to Truck Camper Magazine for their next calendar contest.
I did some tent camping at Yosemite one winter and practically froze to death. The second night friends joined us with their truck camper. Guess where I slept after their arrival?? Yup,their camper! The only way to go!
I lived in California for 20 years and made lots of trips to Yosemite, with almost all of them in the winter. So beautiful, serene and quiet compared with the hordes of people there in the summer.
Thanks for sharing! Brings back great memories.
