    Default Hello from the Tacoma area!

    Hey guys! Just found out about this place. Excited to get to know all of you.
    I drive a 2001 Chevy S10 ZR2. I'll post some pictures of my rig once I work out hosting.

    Thanks Jerry!

    Just switched to tapatalk on my tablet which solved my image hosting. Brace for pictures...

    My Z on top of Chumstick Mountain while on WABDR.

    Interior:


    Fairly stock. Minimal engine mods. Stock suspension. Fabtech prerunner bar in front with a pair of Hella 500s and a pair of Pilot Navigator lights. Pro Comp rear facing light mounted to shell. Shell is a bit on the ugly side but was only $29 on Craigslist and makes sleeping arrangements easy.
    Inside navigation is handled by my transformer prime tablet running OruxMaps and downloaded Topo maps of area. CB radio for trail comm. Vertex VX150 2m handheld wired to a 1/2 wave truck mounted antenna for emergency /long range comm.

    Thanks! The 10"screen is nice for a quick glance while bouncing down the trail. A dedicated GPS unit would be easier, but I'm rather chea...frugal... and didn't want to shell out for an additional device that I didn't really need.

    I would like to get a Garmin gps with the 7.5" screen (I think thats the size) That would perfect for these old eyes.
    But the one I have is a NUVI 500 and it work really well. It's about 5 years old and need to be updated but it does what I need it to do, so I'm good. For now anyways. :-)
    Also Aaron it short notice but you might check out the Annual Christmas Valley campout and trail ride in the up coming events. It s a week from today.

    Thanks for the invite. Wish I could make it. Truck had a hiccup last week and we're a bit short on dollars as a result :-\

    Yes just trying to keep fuel in a vehicle now days is a killer for a lot of folks including me. At $4. per gal. it's keeping us from exploring like we used to. Getting only 16 or so mpg in our Jeep doesn't let us go ery far. The 7th Annual Christmas Valley off road campout and trail ride will be the last full weekend next June 2015. If you start saving all your pocket change now you might have enough to come next year If gas doesn't go any higher.
