Great trip report! And it's great to see the Avion back in action! Just think, 180+ pages ago, you were pulling the Avion out of the river! Much nicer seeing it in use!

THANKS!

Thank you so much for taking us with you!

Getting caught in an unexpected ice storm with no heat is one of the reasons why we go truck camping, isn't it?

Thanks again,
Joerg

I haven't followed that epic thread in a long time; I had forgotten that was the same camper that was nearly more refuse floating down a flooded river. My hats off to you 67Avion, both for the volunteer work you do, and for restoring that camper to beyond it's original glory after a dunking and near "total" disaster.

Thank you for the best TR I've read in a long time. Your photos and thoroughly engaging narrative left me wanting more - surely for a trip of 3000 miles you could write volumes! How about a little wrap-up? Did you buy any property, and will you be going back to Marfa anytime soon?

Thanks again - it was well worth the time to read.
