Thread: Been on Road Trip Lately?

We just returned from Cody, WY., which is just outide of Yellowstone. It was about an 8 hour trip one-way from Denver. My father in-law just moved up near there and it has some spectacular views and tons of wildlife (mostly proghorns). When we arrived, it was also the first day of hunting season, which made for some additional and interesting scenery.

Sounds good. An 8 hr trip for me gets me just past New York City.
I've been out to Jackson Hole, and it is amazing out there. Love Denver too, especially the skiing at A-Basin and Copper Mtn. Great city too.

Great ideas. I saw a company online had those aluminum carriers on-sale recently. I'll have to look into that some more. I like the idea of the stackable containers too. Do they fit on the carrier, or do you use those in the bed?

Yes, they fit on the carrier, with about a foot to spare. I stack two there and place a couple of 7 gallon water jugs on the side of the containers using the extra space. The other two, I stack together in the bed. I also added rope w/plastic tubes as handles to the containers. It makes it very easy to load and unload the truck as well as stores our camping gear.

I joke about it, but it's nice to be close to the City. I've always loved the mountains though, and think about it when I'm sitting in traffic. Then again, I'm not in LA.
