No wild animals, yet. However, I physically measured the barn last night at 60' x 60' inside dimensions. That alone is about 1/2 our current living area between goats, vehicles and house. I'm excited!!

I suppose one of the Monteros could be cut to look like a Toys-r-Us giraffe transport...but no.

you made a good find.
giraffes can come later.
do not modify the montero yet!

add042411: figured out the driving lamp/relay/signal problem i had created by willy-nilly pulling wires out of the dash. ground switching. i remembered the relay logic.
still only have a high speed heater fan, which may be kinda a weird problem. it really does blow "high" since the duct work.

suzi the psychic really had to work on this one, and she made me proud. she even tried to be a snow cat 'cause i asked her to. it was my fault- not her's.
i had tried to access out of markleeville, but the gate on hwy89 was closed(locked) and i couldn't find anybody at the inn to unlock it for me.
i drove around the gate by going into nevada and working my route in reverse.
i thought i'd be able to work out to markleeville on sunday.
that didn't work.
i got her dirty.
[Linked Image]
i'll add.

a bit of trail info: to get off the barney riley towards markleeville, one may use the 310(part of which seems to be known as "tie rod hill"). it was blocked by snow drift.
[Linked Image]
i know another way that meets the 310 further up, but it was not passable near haypress flat.
[Linked Image]
coming in via loope canyon is probably still a couple of weeks out.
i had to grunt back to the b riley and run back thru nevada.
if i follow my tracks i can't get lost.
[Linked Image]
add:
here's another view of snowcat suzi. she got me out.
[Linked Image].
i'm trying again in a couple of weeks.
i'm putting her mud boots on this time.

obligatory photo of the tubs.

descriptions i've read about the b riley mention driving on baseball sized rocks- true. they don't say much about the basketball, watermelon, suitcase, washing machine, or refrigerator sized ones.
nevada has some very good scenery also.
[Linked Image]
i ended up back tracking this time. doesn't usually happen that way.

tagon- spritzed suzi with the pressure washer. she's at least 100lbs lighter and shiny in places. haven't discovered any trail damage that wasn't there before.
i'm gonna have to measure this off pavement run. could be useful info for a future expedition.
my little coleman stove croaked on me sunday morning. wouldn't pump up- some valvething down in the pump chamber.
must fix or replace. mabe a pull-out 2burner for the chuck wagon. plumbed to the tank and on slideout rails.......
no- but mabe the 2burner.
no- i take too much crap and the single burner is fine.
i'm thinking of a firebox though. any experience with that sorta thing? i was never into big fires anyway- have to find too much wood.


did some cypherin' -- only 38mi. off pavement ths run. felt longer. i should do something about the seat. my right leg keeps going knumb.

looks great, I miss driving around Nevada back roads, able to see the geology!!

I have 2 old/older Coleman stoves if you'd like them for parts or as fireboxes. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

ah yes, rockman. i can appreciate the scenery that way also!
no formal study- i make up stories. i take my rock book.
the coleman offer/idea is good. i was thinking about some sort of metal box mabe a little bigger(?)and perhaps a little thicker(again?). plus how to carry and stow it- must become a bit of a messy thing. perhaps a lidded box....
