Sorry, Yep I never figured what full retail was. Helped that I knew the owner, he was a client. My "insider" price was $800. Still even with all those gutter mounts eventually there was some cracking on sheet metal seams. My final solution was to make a "halo" that went through the roof and...
Everything looks too clean and shiny, like it's one of those commercials where people are in the wilderness but all their clothes are fresh pressed and they look like they just came from the barber.
My coffee set up looks like it just came from a war zone!
The next morning we decided to do some exploring. The map shows a small side road leading to pass. On the drive in I thought I may have seen a faint trail going that direction. After some wandering I found a very faint trail, no I found the only faint trail leading away from the lake and up...

As the day was waning, we hurried down toward the once Scanlon ferry crossing, our days destination. Along the way we saw some interesting places we would normally stop and investigate but since we would travel out the same route in the morning, we decided to postpone and side trips.

Rising before the sun is something I relish while exploring. Making a fire, heating water for coffee and enjoying the quiet coolness of a new day, it just doesn’t get much better.
Mike has traveled with me on several occasions and knows I like to get an early...
Whittier to Little Finland
I’ve always been an early riser and even more so when the morning before daylight involves a start on an off road adventure. At such an early hour, it never fails to amaze me as I leave the greater Los Angeles basin through Cajon Pass, how many cars are on the...
Got back last night, (Thursday). Now for the real challenge......writing up the trip report!

A few trip statics:
Total off road miles - 349.5

Thanks for the heads up, and yes, I have been in this area before:
Been a while since I've posted one of my trips. Lots of interest in the Arizona Strip but little known or written about its next door neighbor, The Nevada Strip. That portion of infrequently visited land bordered on the North by Interstate 15, The east by Arizona, the south, Lake Mead and the...
