Took the Northstar out for the first time. Went to Cloudcroft New Mexico for the weekend. Traveled the Forest Roads for many miles testing the F350 and the Northstar Laredo SC.

This was a nice road for testing.

Found some nice campsites.

Nothing like a campfire after dinner.

Next morning woke up to the sound of Elk.

I was lucky to see one of the great hunters.

This guy was just trying to dry out after some rain.

Everything worked great with the F350 and the Northstar Laredo SC.
The F350 handled the TC with no duck walking on those side to side off road situations. I think this is the best combination for the places I like to visit.

Camping in the clouds.

Can't wait to go out again.

Arggg! Darn you for posting this! This is the type of boondock camping I used to do in my area(in a NorthStar no less....)

I am so envious of your rig, except the Ford (LOL) and the awesome location!

Well, I guess I can live vicariously in your post and keep longing for my next camper.

Nice stuff!

For some strange reason, I don't think I'll be heading there with the Winnie?:

Those are breathtaking places, and I'm sure that it will make many of us MH owners wish we had a TC....for that extra freedom. [emoticon]

Beautiful pictures....nice looking rig....thanks for posting...

Happy Camping[emoticon]

Hey, Nice camper! [emoticon]

What a beautiful area. I see you have an awning, table, and chairs. Where do you put these for the trip? I told Todd we could put some things like the carpet and chairs in the ladder area, but he's nervous about doing that.

Thanks for sharing your pics, glad you had a great first outing.

I think that your rig is exactly what I would get if I was getting a new truck and camper right now. Beautiful set up. 2014 can't get here soon enough.
