    I guess I had to get the '83 K5 muddy before I traded it off... had to get it stuck once too. A small block, 10-bolt axles and 33" all-terrains definitely aren't what I'm used to. It made me humble again.

    But everyone got stuck at least once.

    Thats what I'm talking 'bout! Looks like you had a blast.

    It will be like that here soon, as soon as the frost goes out the logging roads will be nothing but a ribbon of sink holes through the woods.

    Nice pics!

    Nice pics man! Where did all that take place? I Just moved to Colville and was wondering where I could do some wheeling. Somebody over at 4x4MECCA said you were in the same neck of the woods so I checked out your web site. All I have to say is damn that is one hell of a impressive collection. My wife bitched about all my vehicles before we moved and I only had four! I dont know if my truck would keep up with yours [all stock fer now] but maybe we could get together sometime, have a beer and do some wheeling. You can shoot me a e mail if like at stoutcameron@yahoo.com

    We're having a play day/weekend up there on April 28th and 29th. We have one short and deep mudhole that looks pretty nasty right now. This is what it looked like last fall:

    and this clip has some video from our mud play day last year at my place:

    Should be fun, and everyone's welcome to come up and play and even camp... at least those who don't mind camping at a place that feels like a wrecking yard.

    I'd love to have another K5 with that same paint scheme on it. Reminds me of the '83 I had that was stolen from my uncle's driveway a few years back and never recovered.

    Well, it's going bye bye here tomorrow. I have the '83 K5 traded for an '82 K30 Diesel. The K30 has a bad tranny (TH400) but is otherwise whole and has a 205, Dana 60, and winch, as well as 4" lift and good 33" tires. I figure the K5 needs alot of little things that are minor, the K30 has a major problem (tranny) but in the long run I'd rather have the 1-ton truck and I have a TH400 lined up for it.

    The guy wanted like $2500 for the truck with bad tranny, which in my opinion isn't worth that... but I offered the K5 in trade and it seems like a go.

    My only setback is the title got lost, and I've been trying to coordinate with the previous K5 owner to get the release of interest/affidavit of lost title form signed and notarized, but he gets off work at 5 or so and home by 5:30 and every notary in Spokane leaves and goes home at 5:30 or 5.

    I think I may go see what it takes to become a Notary that offers services after 6pm just since it seems that none exist.
