I very much enjoy watching your video's. I hope to be coming up your way sometime soon. I'd love to tag along on one of your ventures if it would be possible. Love that old Jeep motor putting along on the trail. I posted a comment on your day two trip.

I really like your channel George. Yours is less YouTuby, it’s always about the adventure and the scenery.
When I come to PNW to visit you I am hoping I can trip out with this @GHCOE if he will let me. Did you follow his trailer build ?

Thanks! Yes the old Jeep has a nice note as if moves along. The motor has a lot of torque down low so it rarely seems to be working hard.

What is not to like about trailers? If done right they work real well. Stay away from those heavy manufactured units and you will do just fine.
Nothing wrong with trailers... personally I don’t like them... I’ve built a couple over the years, and I find for my traveling they limit me... for you they look like they work fine... I like to be be self contained inside my rigs.

How much do you think your trailer weighs. I just bought a small cargo trailer and it weighs + - 750#. What I put in it probably won't weigh 300#. See my post on Daily check in for today's date 11/21/20. Tell me what you think.

George, the kid and I had a ball yesterday. Especially on that last hill we went up. Can't wait for the next one!

I could'nt find your post.

Dry weight before modifications was 373lbs. It is probably in the 450-475lbs now with frame stiffener/tongue extender and larger wheels. I usually have about 100-200lbs. in the trailer depending on the trip. Most of that weight is what I normally would be carrying in the Jeep so that is really a wash.

Good to hear! It was a fun little side trip for sure. Glad Bob suggested it. I should have some pictures up later today. Thanks for coming.
