4 Day Camping Trip

The wife and I just got back from 4 fun filled days of camping with our "Still New To Us" Voltage 5th Wheel Toyhauler. We had great weather too, cool temps, rain at night & few bugs. Here's a few (OK, a lot of photo's) photo's or our trip. And we LOVE the new 5th wheel .... Oh yeah, the wife tried to make friends with a dad-gum chipmunk by throwing out some perfectly fine almonds ... WTH WOMAN !?!? Damn little rodents anyways !!! ........ HAHAHAHAHAHA !!

Great looking camp spot. I am assuming your in Utah. What part and did you have to do a long section of dirt road to get there.

I have been over on your You-Tube site. Outstanding videos you have there. I especially liked the "38 Miles of Hell" ride. I have been on similar trails in Utah but never 38 miles of it.

The June 02 2015 Snow Ride was pretty interesting. As you were talking about getting a 5th wheel up there it made me think to my "how much dirt road" question. Seems like allot.

Thanks
Arlan

Why Thank You Arlan Guy ... it was an awesome place to set up camp. Yup, I'm in Utah, Northern Utah actually and we were in the Monte Cristo area on this trip. We only had to do about 5 miles of dirt road, but it was kinda rough, tome anyways, pulling the 5th wheel in. So, I took in easy & it took us about 45 minutes to an hour to drive in.

Hey, Thanks for check'in out some of my vids. Glad you have enjoyed them too. Yup, the "38 Miles Of Hell" was a pretty great ride, but man, did that ever beat the dog out of us !!

Oh, trust me, I wouldn't want to pull my 5th wheel trailer in there any further than I had to, to camp. And one problem that doesn't show up in any of the video's is, the road in is a narrow dirt mountain road. So you meet someone going the other direction ... well, it wouldn't be pretty .... or fun !!

Thanks for check'in out the photo's Arlan. Hope to have more sometime in the future !!

Gunny,

Do you perhaps have waypoint coordinates for where you were camped?

Just interested in the area...

Thanks,

Pirate

Pirate, I'm sure I do someplace ... I did have a track of a ride I did that included that area, but I deleted it yesterday.

But I'm sure I can find some coordinates for you.

Gunny,

What, you deleted it???

Do you use Garmin BaseCamp as a GPS software tool?

Its more of a database application than Map Source was. Thus connect your Garmin GPS, everything automatically uploads and goes into the database.

You can then choose limit the data base file by exporting "trips" as a gpx file and save them on an external hard drive or "in the cloud". And save them for future use or sharing.

Just a few thoughts!!

I'm not crazy about Basecamp so I still use Mapsource. And I don't use the cloud either. And I can change the gdb file extension to the gpx file extension & they still work.

Did you get my PM ??
