    What's the rating on that trailer? Is it a 3/4 ton? What size wheels does it use? How much? I really want to get one of those, but it will have to wait until the Sub is done.

    Summer camping is for wimps! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif The last night of my last elk hunting trip it got down to 9 below zero F and we were tent camping. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif Gotta have a GOOD sleeping bag! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    That trailer looks sweet!

    Its a 3/4Ton with 16.5" 8 Bolts 31" tires stock. They are ex-Canadian military. I bought it off a guy that had a few of them. They are around every once in a while... just have to watch the auction sites. Im pretty sure the US army uses them also.

    Yep, the US has them, too. I saw a convoy of four semis w/ flatbeds loaded down with them. You could also buy the 1.5 ton and swap a smaller axle onto it, or even the 2.5 ton! (but those are heavy)

    [/ QUOTE ] Reason # 2 why I do my hunting at King Soopers.

    I did not go camping once this last summer because of all the wildfires and fire bans. I guess I figured that the Forest Service does not need another idiot (me) starting another fire in an already burning forest. Hopefully we will get some more moisture this year and it will not be so dry up in the mountains. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Most of the camping close by here is in Pike National Forest, but it was closed most of the summer after that moron started the Hayman Fire. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Winter camping is a blast as long as you're prepared for it! One thing is for certain, none of the camping spots are crowded! /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Someday I would like to go "Winter Camping" but I am afraid that my tent and sleeping bag are not quite suited for the extreme cold. I would end up sleeping in the truck. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    The tent we were in had a wood stove ( /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif ) but it would only last maybe an hour before it needed to be restocked. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif A GOOD sleeping bag, long undies, and a balaclava to cover your face will keep you nice and toasty. We also used cots to keep us up off of the frozen ground. The first couple of nights it only got down to 8 degrees and that was comfy with all the stuff we had. But the night it went to 9 below it was starting to get near the limits! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I sleep in my truck anyway! I pull the back seat out, set it by the fire and thrown my air mattress and sleeping bags in the back of the truck. Works greta for me! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
