Nice Pics. Nice Feeesh!

Perhaps a bit cold for my fingers and a flyline?

Nice, there is something really special about catching a fish, of any kind, on a fly you tied yourself. Give the steelhead fishing a try this fall when the weather conditions are about the same as you had on this trip. You talk about a rainbow trout with an attitude problem, the steelhead is it. LOL The Lab looks to be a seasoned camper and ready to go again.
When my wife and I were first married, in Alaska, she would go with me on trips like this, but now after almost 40 years, when invited to go, all I get is the comment, "have fun, I will see you when you get back." LOL

Great pics and reminders. I cannot say how much I miss that state. One day maybe....

Awesome pics, how do you like the Fox Landing step setup?


Honestly, I can't imagine being without the landing. We LOVE it!!! That's how Violet, our 84 lb Lab manages the steps. She hops onto the landing, which gives her a place to pause and then up and in she goes.

What great pics! It sure looks cold, hope you stayed toasty in the TC. How does the pup manage those stairs? How did the truck handle? Glad you enjoyed yourself and got the chance to break it in. It's a nice start to your new TC experience. Keep us posted with updates.


Hey "T", haven't heard from you in a while.

The TC stays very toasty, its very well insuated and very comfortable. The truck handles like a dream, a lot better than I ever expected it to. It's lke it floats with ease and turns and manuevers effortlessly, with awesome control; we LOVE it!

Honestly, if not for the Landing, I don't know how Violet would manage those entrances and exits; it's one of the best things about having this TC.

How's your camping going?

Wow ... looks like an amazing trip! Good luck catching salmon - yum! How's the new Artic Fox in the cold weather? Some time back you talked about putting "batts" in all of the crevices to keep the cold out ... do you still?

Some day we're going to take our "office" on the road to Alaska ...


The TC is great, heater warms up quickly and its insulated very well. There were a few areas that we nearly void of insulation, like the battery box, the back cable storage and dump station area. I made insulation pillows; short and long ones. I then cut them to length and eased them into nearly all void spaces. It's amazing the difference. Prior to having them, I could feel cool air entering the bottom kitchen cabinet when I opened the door. Now, I feel hardly any cool air coming in, they're great!

Don't wait for that "someday", for that Alaska trip. Plan it and then get out and do it. We drove up last September, took 10 days from N. California and had one of the greatest experiences of our lives, and now, here we are doing the Alaskan adventure thing. Just do it!
