I have a spotting scope I will be bringing but don't have a tripod for it. I think a camera tripod will fit it. If anyone has one and is willing to bring it, please do. I will also see if I can borrow one from verk tomorrow.
I'll be heading west around 15:00 tomorrow.

I'll bring the camera tripod.

I didn't get any pictures, but I sure enjoyed getting to visit and shoot with everyone.  Once again, some great camp fire stories.  Charles, you need to get out here so you can share some of yours!

It appears there are folks coming from back east. Maybe you could car pool.

You ought to try road tripping with 1st Sgt Tom Rhodes and 2nd Lt George Smith.  Now that is a trip from hell, since we make a joke out of everyone and everything...  Looking forward to next year.  Hope the timer does not forget to hit the start button....    :o

Of course with 3B's generosity it should be less of an issue.  :)

  I remember when you got that-it is too cool!!!





 

  You could put some sides on it, put about 20 of us back there with AKs, G3s, FALs, BM59s etc and we could do a Somalian drive by :D

But, Charles, we're not "most people"! I'd ride up in that!

Or Drydock's truck, too. But I might have to set aside an extra day for the trip, what's the cruising speed on that truck? I remember my '53 1 ton would go 50-55, but it was really wound up doing it. 45-50 was more like it. But that was back in the 55 days anyway, so it wasn't a problem then.

 I bet you really had to put a load on that to even need the granny gear.

Its got a pretty tall high range gear in the rear axle.  (Rod and cable actuated with the OTHER gear shift)  and will cruise 55-60 comfortably on flat ground.  Stopping takes some planning though . . .

Two speed rear axle does make a difference, my 1 ton was just a single speed. Never really found a load big enough to need granny gear, but it was useful for creeping around the farm. I don't think I ever had a hay crew load it, just loaded it myself, most of the fields were flat enough I just slip it out of gear and leave it sit idling while I stacked it.
