Nov 3rd we will be driving the Truck and Lance cross country towing our horse in a trailer from near San Francisco to Lexington KY on I80 until Iowa then dropping down to Lexington. We will be traveling wet, the camper fully insulated and on below freezing days have the furnace on. Stops for the night in Salt Lake City, Ogallala NE, St Peters MO. We will spend a week at the Kentucky horse park competing then do the trip in reverse about 5000 miles total. After that Its snow camping time in the Sierras and Cascades


Sounds like such an awesome trip.
I was raised in Salt Lake City and just live about 200 miles south.

Nice shop.

I just winterized mine today after using it the last several days in Eastern MT. But, I think I have to take a look at the generator to see if the vent hose is clogged. Still tbd is winterize the trailer. I have electric heat blowing into the compartment with the pump, drained the water, etc. Still tbd to run rv antifreeze through the lines.


Thanks Jim, just wish it was mine.

I need mine for work for a little while. I just ordered tank heaters for the black and gray and hopefully use it through out the winter.

I live 23 miles west of Richfield in Fremont Indian State Park.

Sure hope all is OK from the bike accident.

You should wake up to the white stuff. [emoticon]

Would have loved to have met you.

…. Here I am toughening it out in the Philippines & wishing I was in the TC somewhere… Actually on day 8 of a 10 day quarantine locked up in a hotel room overlooking Manila Bay & guess what…NO Alcohol allowed during quarantine…… And REALITY CHECK the dog and I flew into the Fry Canyon dirt strip years ago & stayed at the motel restaurant that operated there, now a residence.
