    Went up to the mountains of WV for some trail riding and camping. It was pretty mild, but still cold and snowy. Had a good time. Blazer did well. The locked rear really helped out, but I used 4wd in the snow jus incase.

    Nice pics. Especially that last one, the windshield shot. I am also reminded of why I bought a Burb - no tent necessary in bad weather.

    That looks too cold. If ya need something over your mouth to warm the air, it's entirely to chilly.

    well it wasnt too bad. yeah right. lol. it was cold. Dont forget I drove up from Florida. It was 80degrees when I left. I was born and raised in WVa but been about 15years since I did winter there. lol..It was fun, id do it again. The trail riding was a blast, we went up and down all the mountains. Nothing hardcore and it was pretty tame.but still fun.

    LoL..yeah. well. The wind was so bad and cold that it was jus easier to cook in there. it worked out well. If I had more room, id invest in a big ass tent, like a 8x8 that you can stand up in and what not. or one of the military GP smalls. But they are big and take up alot of space. Infact I carried so much gear that it was pretty hard to get to any of it without dragging it out. Between me and my buddy we had enuff gear to last weeks up there. But it was a really fun trip.
