    Took a few pics yesterday on my trip across the state to pick up a '77 K20.

    Since I like mountains, I figured I'd share them. Nothing spectacular or nothing great of photo quality, but I didn't take time to get out of the truck or stop to take them.

    Heh heh. Thought for a second from the third pic in this thread at first that you'd flat towed the thing! :haha: :haha:

    I almost thought about just throwing the tow bar in the back of the truck and going over and towing it back that way... but the '77 had expired tags and the trailer handles alot better, especially if your going down any hills that might be slick or windy. I've towed alot with the tow bar that towed perfectly smooth up to 55-60 mph... and some that were a huge pain to even reach 30 and the towed truck would try and send me into the ditch. Also slid sideways once on black ice down in the ditch and one lane of a highway for a couple hundred feet at 45 mph with the tow bar hanging onto my Orange Blazer (pre-orange) and it stayed attached and intact (Someone was watching over me, and still is on every trip, and you know who). But I use the trailer more often now.


    Don't wish that on yourself. :eek1:
