I lived in glendale for 3 months it was all I could tolerate, give me the cold

going into the Adirindaks in a few weeks & trying to be prepared for the worse

RE: AA1PR's M416 Trailer Build
sadly the table isnt as high as the 6' version I had before, though my daughter likes it

the canopy was a challenge to erect, with my injury I couldnt get it setup properly
one of my ham radio friends is selling me the awning off his popup camper he is junking & I'll add that to the mix instead

so that'll be coming soon I hope for summer camping season

That's pretty handy. Nice for the campsite when you might get a brief rain.

Yes its not bad we used it for field day weekend & it worked great

on a different note

(my Son) Jr got the 98 Jeep grand cherokee laredo paid off from my parents today for a whopping $800, registered, insured etc too

its his first vehicle so dont laugh too hard

it was my moms since new, it has 150K on it & comes with summer tires & winters on a steel set of rims

[Image: DSC_1736.jpg]

he added a few decals tonight LOL & is talking about a mild lift (already)

[Image: DSC_1737.jpg]

we're going to my storage unit tomorrow to dig out the 10" boom box, amp & old cd stereo I have thats not being used, my kind of additional thank you for all the wrench twisting he does on my rig for me

[Image: DSC_1733.jpg]

I'll see if I can coax him to join

RE: AA1PR's M416 Trailer Build
Your trailer build is really cool man, I like what you did with it.
Also, congrats to your son on the jeep. I had one exactly like that a couple years ago, same color a Laredo, everything. Had 220000 miles on it when I bought it, and I sold it to a buddy who's still driving it with a 4 inch lift I installed and over 300000 miles. The only ones laughing are those who have never wheeled in or rode in one of them. They are extremely capable rigs and perfect for the North winters with that full time 4wd option. He got a Laredo so he doesn't have to worry about all the fancy stuff that came on limiteds breaking (like mine will lol).
Stick with a 2" budget boost. Any higher and he gets into track bars and control arms and lots of $.

RE: AA1PR's M416 Trailer Build
Thanks Guys, he is as proud as can be

The youngest wanted to go camping & the weather looked Ok so off we went to Moosalamoo campground


got the tarp setup off the back of the trailer with my homebrew poles, it was starting to mist &
reminded me of the PNW a bit

I dug a small trench maybe an inch deep or so to channel the water away from us if it did downpour

little one setup the table to her height which was all that bad since the tarp was low anyways

got a shot looking back in

& then the thunder boomers & lightning overhead came right over us,I decide it was time to leave when that happened

& then the weather turned for the worse
