my campsite, had to empty out truck for a place to sleep since i decided to leave the rangertrailer at home. its surprizing how fast you can fill up a longbed with gear. the fire pit was a nice thing to have on hand.

I had no idea that TRS-2 was able to run and drive. I thought it needed much more work.

What's mounted on the camper shell window on @85_Ranger4x4's truck in the last photo?

85 had a go pro back there.

TRS 2 definitely still has things to deal with, but Jim (and Jon riding shotgun) were able to wheel it just fine.

@ryan - Jim had a camera rolling during your ascent when things started to go sideways.

I had an absolute blast. My wife had fun and it was my son's first time wheeling. Thanks for having us and it was nice to meet other ranger lover's like myself.
