    Annie and I leave home here on the 15th of September and will make our way towards Asheville. Our plan is to arrive in Asheville a couple days before Expo.

    • Well we are about 1800 miles into our trip to Overland Expo in Asheville NC. Left home on Sept 15. The truck is running great. Getting just about 12 MPG so far. Added balancing beads before we left and that made a difference for sure. Our balance wasn't horrible I just thought I would try to get it even better. Stopped in Wixon to attend the AEV oen house for their new building. What an amazing building they have put together. A great work space to be sure. Attendance at the open house was great. When we arrived and parked in the lot to go in we were asked to put the Cruiser inside the building with the AEV builds. That was very unexected but very cool too. Annie scrambled to get the inside ready for what was basically a spontaneous car show. She did a great job as we had been living in it for two weeks by this point. Scooped up a free AEV T-shirt and some Bigalora pizza for supper. If you get a chance to tey Bigalora do it, the crust and pizza is amazing. Down the road we went to Cincinatti then over to Red River Gorge to do some hiking. So far the camper and all systems are working great. If anyone is attending Overland Expo be sure to stop by for a visit. Annie and I should be in Asheville by Monday night.

              • I live about 50 miles away from Zion Nat Park, and saw this vehicle briefly when you were passing through the area. Very impressive! Pictures do not do it justice. Good job, and enjoy your time spent exploring with it.

                • Very nice. Working on a bed camper for my truck and like your selection of components. What windows are you using?
                  Ben, how far from St Augustine are you located?

                    • Man your living MY dream....only thing I'd do different is have my JK behind that beast....thanks for sharing.

                      If you have any extra time in the southwest I would try and go thru Pagosa Springs Colorado, take a break and check out the hot springs there.

                      • Redrock, we plan to tow either our JK or LJR. We just have to set up the tow bar etc yet.

                        • Here is our last shot from Glamis Dunes. Annie doing up the last of her daily travel log.

                          Then off to Tierra Del Sol for the annual Jeep Safari.
                          So many Jeeps, quads etc running around


                          Off to Anza Borrego to get away from the mayhem. Recent rains mean the desert is alive and blooming like crazy!



                          Now down in San Diego for a couple days for cell service and some retail therapy for Annie.

                            • Here is a quick update of our recent trip with some small explanations.

                              Spent some time in Quartzsite, AZ




                              Anza Borrego, CA


                              Made it to the Tierra Del Sol annual Jeep crawl. Not me or my Jeep lol.



                              Stopped in Julian, CA, for a quick cider


                              "camped" just outside San Diego


                              One of the three nights in six weeks that we got a campsite. North of San Diego.


                              "camped" in front of the Gamble House one night. Went for a tour the next morning.

                              • We stopped in Malibu at Nobu for lunch. It was our big "splurge" of the trip (other than quilting fabric for Annie). This pretty travel partner always manages to come out of the Cruiser looking gorgeous. I get dressed up by wearing my pair of Exofficio travel pants and a mosquito proof shirt. I guess I have to up my travel clothing game to keep up with her, LOL.



                                Pretty self explanatory


                                Met some new over-landing friends who invited us to camp in this lovely spot.



                                We rarely eat inside the Cruiser but this day was raining and we had lunch with three of us comfortably inside the Cruiser.



                                Northern California, Avenue of the Giants.


                                Ferry in Seattle over to Vashon Island to visit friends.


                                Ferry back to Seattle, Wa



                                Parallel parked the rig a couple times when Annie said I wouldn't be able to :safari-rig:
