Just a few nice views from AZ and UT


Recommended Posts

We spent most of the winter boondocking around the SW in the Truck Camper. Killed a few quail, but mostly just hid from winter. Of course, winter did find us for a few days, even though we were within eyeshot of Mexico. One great advantage of TCs vs bigger RVs is most of the places we stayed would have been difficult or impossible to access with anything else since 4x4 and high clearance was required.

 

The last photo is what I dance like when I see bucks like the one in the pictograph.

I always said photos couldn't do that country justice. 

But I guess it was just my photography - yours are gorgeous!

Very cool.  Thanks for taking us along.  How does the 3/4 ton do off trail with the camper on the back?

The scenery shots are great but that pictograph is super cool. I have never found one.

Very nice!  I would like to do exactly that in the MH one of these days.  We spend plenty of time in MT and teh Dakotas, but neither Nancy nor I have ever seen or hunted the southwest.  You are right that a big MH greatly restricts where you can camp, but we tow a truck with substantial off-road capability to get into the back country.

Beautiful. My favorite part of the US, besides the northeast. We’ve explored some of AZ, NM, NV and southern CO, but have only taken a few steps into UT. I want to go back and spend more time in UT. If I had my druthers I’d live in the Southwest at least part of the year.

We've done bout 70,000 miles with the camper on, including the Alaska Hwy and have had no issues. I added timbrens to the rear axles, and the highest load rated tires that will fit without going to 19.5 wheels, other than that I might go with a bigger sway bar, but I'm in no rush to make any changes. The Wolf Creek 850 is the lightest TC we could get that was hardsided and had a working bathroom/shower (for the wife.) 2200lbs dry, just under 3000lbs wet.

That's exactly what we are attempting! Three years and running so far.

We spend half our time searching out new ones. Lots of established locations have great ones, but the best I've seen were way off the grid in the middle of NV. No one else appeared to know about them.

 

The image below is from the same site as the dancing hunter one I posted earlier.

That's super cool! The only ones I've ever seen were in Death Valley - documented, but not widely known as they're off the beaten path, even for DV.
