Nice report , the video's especially made it all come alive. I noticed that the tiedowns were loose , I'm guessing this was intentionally to lessen the strain on the rigs.

We were glad to be part of that trip Alex! Even if I was the only Dodge among Fords - at least you guys knew there'd be someone to tow you out if you broke down !!



It was a pleasure having you and your family on this adventure. [emoticon]

I dunno Alex, I'll have to name you Loco Man for riding the top of your tc. You must have been high on TCT or something. (Truck Camper Top) Maybe those suction shoes would work next time. Great great videos, you got it down. And I think they named Muscleman Arch after DJ. Who needs a winch with guns like that?! It looks like a real fun trip for all, glad you had good company Alex, kudos to you all!




It seemed like a good idea at the time and even my brother thought so. I think he wanted my truck.[emoticon]

I was glad to have the Dodge along too. With all the flooding going on we could have sank it and used it as a stepping stone!!! [emoticon]

I had a really great time too. Only problem it ended too soon!!

I don't know what happened in those pics. I am a fairly small guy at 5-10, 'cept for the beer!! [emoticon] Must be the light or Alex's camera adds 50#!!!

Bob was the big guy on this trip!!! [emoticon]

On trail like this loosening the tie downs will allow the camper to move around and keep the tie downs from being torn out of the camper.
