Latest trip with the Jeep and Safari Trailer

Well, were back from our trip. And it couldn’t of been any better.

We brought along our four year old Grandson, Logan. Who insisted that he was going to wear my hat the entire time.

I had taken him Trout fishing on Tuesday. Score: Logan-4, Papa–0 of course he proceeded to tell everyone that we came in contact with, that Papa caught 0.

That evening while still at our home, he discovered we were leaving in a couple of days, and decided he wanted to hang around.


The weather was in the high 70’s to mid 80’s nights were in the low 40’s and gave the tent heater a run for the money.

We arrived on Thursday, and were surprised to find that all the main roads had been completely re-done.


It was nice to finally see our monies we spend on OHV tags at work. We missed out on Lyda Camp. It seems a rather LARGE Group from Idaho had made the trip on Wednesday. As it turned out, We got the better of the deal. We pushed on, and up towards Can Opener. A Rock Crawl Trail, Aptly named for what it will do to your door if you miss the proper line. As we rounded the corner we discovered that there was a nice area just off the road for to set camp with 18 Rigs and the Family’s that accompanied them.



Logan, and a few of his new buddies.


And the Gang in Logan’s new Rubicon we brought along with.


Day 2, and we got the Carnage out of the way.


Then onto the trail for a day of rock Crawling.


Over all we had a Great time, discovered some new areas to explore.


And Logan discovered that with the nicest tent trailer in Camp, and a New Rubicon………….
Wait for it…………………………………………………. That’s Right,.................

The Chicks just Dig ya. LOL.....

Hope the driver made it safe. I see that spot is between the filter and upper rock portion of Canopener. Did the rig roll all the down from the rock portion ? That's quite a ways, for a roll over.

Mahalo for the pics and nice write up .

Why do you put the canopies over the tent trailers?

Because the chance of rain at night. We were camping above the 10,000 feet elevation. At night you get thunder storms rolling though. That night we were the only one who were dry, all other camps were soaking wet.

Yes built in Eugene, but I think yours is a better set up.
