Just got back from the NWOR rally. We had so much fun I barely got any pics of the trailer or the event. The trailer worked out perfectly. Sleeping, cooking, washing, overall camping was a delight. Can't wait to get up to BCOR next weekend with wifey and family.
We caravaned over from Spokane with a group from the Overland Bound community in eastern WA and northern ID. I think every member of the group had a great time. After something like seven years of participating in NWOR I finally went on one of the planned road trips. Our was the easiest one of the many they schedule. In fact, there was nothing about the trip that would have precluded me from pulling the Beastie along for the ride. I road along with my daughter and her girlfriend who owns a neat 2014 Unlimited Wrangler. The view from the crest of ridge was fabulous. It was both the girls' first time at attempting both the ride and the obstacle course. The Women's groups that were present did a great job instilling confidence and building up their overlanding skills.
Every year there the weather is different. this year was cool and windy. By the time the nightly raffles were over I would rush back to the trailer, throw my dog Tucker in, start the propane furnace and thaw out. The final morning broke the mold with quiet and mostly sunny weather. After putting together one final meal the group split up and we headed our separate directions toward home. Ray and Marianne Hyland and Mario Donovan really do a great job, along with all their volunteers in putting these events on. Thank you one and all!
I was having so much fun I didn't take very many pictures. Here is one of our messy group campsite.
