... and... me being the troublemaker I am... I managed to park the rig, right, directly, beside... the three trees they need to take out of here... 'course, my excuse is, it was the only spot in this particular camp that much fit our rig... Red Canyon Campground, though a lot of room in the area, the sites are pretty snug. Mostly for tents and pretty modest rigs...
So... sometime this morning we'll hitch up and move to another camp, Skull Creek Campground, just up the road a mile or so. Scouted it late yesterday... and it's a nice place to wait out the weather a few more days.
Not a real big deal... and though I'd prefer to just pull back into the woods somewhere... it's too wet and sloppy in my estimation for that yet. Give it another few days and maybe things will dry out to allow that... I don't want to be one of "Those Guys" that chops the roads all up 'cause he couldn't wait for 'em to dry out a bit...
They claim 60 degrees or so tomorrow and a lower % for precip... so... I'm keepin' my fingers crossed... was closeted in the rig yesterday, most of the day by an almost constant rain/snow mix... That and a bug runnin' through the rig. Went through me in a few hours... Heidi is down hard... hoping she makes a turn for the better today...
While sitting here trying to hold off Cabin Fever by distracting myself with some work I really need to get done, a rather interesting Rig passed by...

It wasn't until I loaded the pic on the computer, and blew it up I spotted what they did...
|*Unique Class 8 Trailer Toter Hitch Arrangement*|
... leastways that's what I take it to be.
... and that pretty much says why they left the tandem axle on there... to make sure they could handle the weight hung out behind... pretty much converts a fifth wheel RV Trailer to a Bumper Pull! :)
'course, when you're steering a truck built to drag 80,000 lbs around... a 25 or 30,000 lb house on wheels ain't much of an issue...
Outside of the short move we have to make... it's shapin' up to be another lazy day, waiting out spring weather in the Rockies... With 70% snow/rain prediction for today... and some sort of 'Flu' bugs on the loose... There likely won't be a whole lot of Hiking done today!
Sittin' Warm and Dry waitin' out what is HOPEFULLY the last of this winters weather!

Hey, did you happen to find out how they load/unload the jeep? Just when you think you've seen it all.
only managed to capture the picture as they rolled past. Didn't get to talk... But... if you look on that rack in front of the bicycles... it looks to me like ramp sections laying under there... though I'm unsure of how they'd fit around that frame extension ... they got me scratchin' my head :)
