As I get braver I get stronger, and as I get stronger I get braver. It’ a good cycle.

Fun to see your take on some of the same areas we visited this fall. We can see some of the places we missed and will have to see next time. Thanks for posting your reports!

Thanks for all the generous comments.  I enjoy the challenge of writing the posts.

 

The trip blogs posts are now all done ending Oct 28th.

 

Time to start planning the next trip.  Maybe the Owyhees and Silver City.  Or maybe a trip to the Washington coast this winter during a storm.  And I want to go to the Seven Devils in Idaho.  And...    :)

Very nice write-ups and thanks for posting the blog.  

 

Would you care to share what, in general, is your camper trailer (length, weight) and your tow vehicle (looks like a 2WD Dodge Dakota?).  Just curious since I can't make out much from the pics.

I drive a Dodge Dakota 4WD and tow a 17.5 ft Bigfoot.  I don't remember the weight.  At times I lust for a pop-up camper.  But with two dogs and the desire to only camp off season; resulting in more inside time, I have the trailer.

Bigfoot is a mighty fine camper manufacturer, and about the only game in town for winter use units. For any of your future considerations, we love our hardside pop-up.  Ours is a knock-off Rockwood from the Forest River family of brands, but the knocked-off unit is the A-Liner.  I understand the A-Liners have powdercoated steel frames. Our Rockwood frame is simple painted steel and as such it will never see salted roads.  

 

The hardside A-frame popups go from low-wind resistance towed mode to tall, roomy hardside units in literally one minute.  Ours has a combination A/C and heat pump for hot nights and cool nights when hookups are available, and a propane furnace for boondocking on colder nights.  

 

Thanks for the info!  I'm always interested in the kinds of rigs folks go a-wandering in!  Mostly the FWC/ATC truck campers here on WTW, but there are a few of we trailer-draggers lurking about.  We have very good friends in West Seattle and they're pondering a lightweight trailer acquisition, focused mostly on R-Pods but still considering other brands/configurations.
