suzi the psychic is getting fitted out to play with miss bitchy in a couple weeks.
nothing serious- just to shake things out a little bit.
i can think about straightening out the other side now.
still need to put the skid plate back on.

i added a place to put my thermos, water, etc.and a little stowage cubby behind the seat.

Have you looked at the Cabela's seatcovers with storage pockets on the back?

the seat has a nice web pocket on the back, but just for light stuff.
it fills the role very nicely, but i had to do some cutting and welding to make the seat fit and operate fully.
did i mention it's electric? leather(not heated).
came out of a bmw m3. passenger side, so controls are on the right and back release levers on both sides.
has this funny way of lifting up and forward when you tilt the back to access behind the seat.
anyway, i don't want to interfere accessing behind the seat.
i'm still trying to figure out how much "stuff" i can carry.
i'm packing an air mattress(coleman w/pump). getting older.

...the getting older part, yeah. I recently purchased a Ramcharger to haul a future camper trailer around, and use both to replace my minimally useful motorhome.

suzi the psychic and miss bitchy went out to play.
spent a couple nights at ef carson.
fine trip with no hassles, but disturbingly dry so early.
i'll add some pics.

prepping to run suzi to courtright reservoir and environs. thinking of approaching from pine flat lake.
solo run this time .....
start 0510(thursday,a.m.)gotta be back at work the next wednesday.
may go look at chicken rock.
real glad to have made the shake down run, got the gear sorted out better.
my water container arrangement didn't work as i had hoped, so i've gone back to my 5ga. coleman cube, triggering a pack shuffle. not bad.
i'll give the air mattress another try. it sure is heavy.

suzi and i tried to get to courtright reservoir.
should have checked first- had to spend thursday night at wishon.
camped at dinky creek friday night(not the campground- it's not open yet either).
spent saturday exploring around and cut the trip short.
nice drive.

my map led me to believe this was the way i wanted to go.
[Linked Image]
i found a small tree down, so i removed it.
[Linked Image]
then i found 3 trees down, so i started breaking thru ....
[Linked Image]
and got it clear enough to pass.
[Linked Image]
then i found it was a connector to a road i would have come to anyway. go figure.
later in my travels i was stopped by bigger trees. i didn't bring my chainsaw.
by this time i was just exploring anyway.....

I have a nice, small 18-gallon potable water tank that might fit in a trailer behind suzi... It appears you don't have much air volume remaining to convert to storage anymore. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
