You know I've got a keeper when she lets me tow my 77 K5 down to Gatlinburg for the honeymoon and cruise it all week. The truck has no doors and no roof, but she wanted to ride in it everywhere!!! She's a good one! We went to Nemo's tunnel, an old train tunnel built in the 1800's. It was so cool. Ended up stuck, and muddy. We got out and had a blast. Can't wait to do it again. Notice I tried real hard to keep the passenger side clean so she wouldn't get muddy!!! It was an exciting trip to get to the trail head. Blazer blew a tire, then we had to buy brand new 33's!!! Oh darn! They were the only 15 inch off road tire they had!!! Lucky me, not so lucky on the trip budget! 64547472529--5A32AF14-CCEB-4112-A1E4-CAE57C009CA0.jpg IMG-6602.jpg IMG-6606.jpg IMG-6671.JPG IMG-6695 (1).jpg IMG-6615.jpg IMG-6616.jpg IMG-6644.jpg IMG-6635.jpg IMG-6659.JPG

Good times for sure. Your bride does sound like a keeper.

That tire was separating before it blew. new tires should run smoother.
77 you say, the trim should have the orange stripe.
Good looking truck wrong trim or not.

Somewhere being famous.
Looks like fun. You should have hit me up while you were here. Windrock park was only 2 hours away. 73K acres of trails.

I almost went out to Nemo tunnel a few months back with a local first gen group. But then I deleted Facebook and haven’t had contact with anyone. I’d like to try going again sometime.
