Thanks! Definitely appreciate the comments! I'm getting ready to head out to Big Bend National Park so I'll follow-up with all of you and give a good trip report when I return next Monday. Take care y'all, have a good weekend.

welcome to the club, I was just down at big bend about 6 to 8 months ago. Great place to see. We started at the mcdonald observatory around Ft Davis and then just meandered through the state along the border following the Rio Grande. After getting into the park there is a hot springs thats pretty cool on a dirt road to the right, or rather a goat trail. You should take a look while your there.

Big Bend was incredible! Richard, our Art Director, and myself were there for 3 days and had a blast. The first portion of our trip was spent on several four-wheel trails including the Old Ore Road (home to a recent gravesite that freaked us out since it was only 100 yards from where we planned to camp the first night), River Road, Black Gap Trail, and Glenn Springs Road. All these trails are very easy with the Black Gap Trail being easy/moderate in sections, and all trails provided some excellent driving in a beautiful setting. I highly recommend them all!

After driving around in the Jeep, we filled up our packs and backpacked the South Rim of the park which is a 13 mile hike. We actually camped in a primitive site about halfway around the loop (right along the South Rim) and the views at sunrise were absolutely breathtaking! From there, we completed the loop and then headed back to San Antonio and Houston as we had to be back at the office on Monday.

Overall, the trip was awesome and the park has so much to offer. I will be doing a full write-up of the trip as we have several gear reviews including: Adventure Trailers can holders, Garvin EXT series bumper/rack system, Mountain Hardwear Meridian 2 tent, Thermarest Luxury series self-inflating mattress, and Thermarest Lounger in the next issue of JPFreek (due out on December 4).

One quick thing about the Garvin system: it is a must have for anyone who owns a TJ and plans to do an extended trip. I can't say enough about how well built the system is, from the welding on down to the entire setup. There were a few things I would have changed as far as the design is concerned but all of that will be included in my review.

Lastly, the following links are a few 'teaser' photos from our trip. More to come in issue #5 of JPFreek! Thanks, and happy Jeepin'.

Frank

Thanks for the welcome. Below are a few links to some photos I took at Big Bend. Overall, I took over 220 but obviously couldn't post them all here. More to come in issue #5 of JPFreek. Take care!
