Camping and Jeepin'

We just returned from the northern lower of Michigan for some trail riding and general R&R. Our next trip is planned for Silver Lake sand dunes, also in the norther lower of Michigan. Truck campers are a perfect way to travel for vacations. Our truck camper has all the conveniences of showers, refrig and cook stove , and for those hot and humid days...air conditioning, lol. Post your travel rig here if you would like.

Looks nice does a hammock and my jeep count as a travel rig?

Definietly a challenge getting the Jeep and toys to the Sand. Easiest just to have my wife drive the Jeep down when the trailer is full of atv's.

Camping and Jeepin'. Nothing better.

Nice set ups guys.

Here's my little class C.

...and the Jeep trailer doubles as an outdoor camp kitchen. Mmmm, bacon!

When we go on the family camping trip the camper tends to get full, I sleep in my Jeep.

Box fan set up, blowing across me I might even get cold at night. A twin blow up mattress fits perfect in the back with the seats down!

If I'm going camping by myself, I stay in my Jeep then too.

Basically, I'm for anything that gets you through the night - be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniels - Frank Sinatra

When I Die, Bury me in my JEEP. 'Cause it's never been in a hole it couldn't get out of!

I modified this small boat trailer that will hold just about anything we need for short or extended trips. Plus, it will just about go anywhere the Jeep will. It is still a work in progress though.

My hammock+jeep setup does, so yours probably does, too.
