My censoring is more of things a person should not consume before operating a motorized vehicle


I'm even MORE surprised I remembered that. One should not consume large amounts of prune juice before going on a long ride.

Was a WONDERFUL trip..............after we got there. It took us two days to travel 130 miles. The fuel selecting valve went out on the '89 Ford(mechanical and hard to find)> I ended up getting the truck towed about 40 miles for $200, then had to wait three days for parts.

Then one of the wheel bearings on the trailer grenaded. It is hard to find bearings by make/model of travel trailer. I had to pull the other wheel off(double axle) and pull the bearing to match up the bearing by dimensions.

Regardless, the trip was nice.

The trailer is finally set up



View from our camping spot



The campground host was a ford fan. I tried to "spread the word" about FTF, but he didn't seem interested.



Another Ford vision of loveliness. Our oldest boy drove the '78 up to join us. It was fun to watch people drive thru the campground and stop and point at the truck.



Picture of Little Tongue River back behind our camping spot. Got down to 28 deg. Wednesday night.



And for the Grand Finale(for anybody who is interested-Ahem, Eric), a truckload of sheep.

That's great Doug, glad you had a awesome time. The pictures are really nice, what a spot. 28*!!! yikes, fall was definitely in the air there, wait, that's more like a winter temperature!!!
Having the trailer sure beats a tent, got to get one

Thanks, Roy. Decent, older trailers can be had fairly cheap. Ours is an '88, but had been used about 4 times since purchased new. The gas stove still had the operating instructions inside the stove.

The campground was at 8400 feet.

Ah, yes, would get nippy at that elevation. That seems to be a common thing with RV's, being like new and hardly used. Yours is nice
