Real nice.
Is your camper a pop-up, or is that a 2 toned paint job?

That water had to be ch-ch-chilly!

Thanks Trosa! They are great dogs. Very affectionate, yet very competitive and field driven.

Gandalara- it's a pop-up truck camper made by Hallmark RV. There are a few pics a number of pages back where you can see it closer up. Really nice campers. I've camped in −10 no problems . The water was cold, but the dogs can take it. I jumped in and could stand maybe 10 minutes playing with the dogs. Actually kinda nice because it's been pretty warm here- low to mid 90's for the past week.

I'm trying to upload some more photo's.. Be back soon!

Default Me and the 'Boys' go camping pt.2

So we continue exploring the old town. This is the old general store (or what's left)-




And when the town was in its heyday, they had an annual Mining Days celebration where they had contest like driving steel into solid rock. If you look closely, check out the build on this you man driving steel into the rock!


And this is the rock that they used to drive those steel pins- there are still steel pins lodged in there!


This was the towns bandstand for celebrations-




It was reconstructed by an Eagle Scout and former marine some 40 years ago, but is starting to fall into disrepair again. For the longest time this was the only 'standing' structure which gave the place an eery feeling. Like folks were waiting to celebrate once again but never did.

Default Me and the 'Boys' go camping pt.4

We head back to the camper and you can see the current mining site higher up the mountain. This range is called the Moccasin Range.


On the path back this is the only 'Improved camping spot' in the entire area. It is mainly used by Boy Scouts from K-M Scout Camp.


I feed the 4 legged boys and fix myself a simple plate. Fitting for the old mining town I'm sleeping at. Venison burger and beans, cold beer (and of course- hot sauce).



The boys are in the rack, down and out for the count. Sun peeked through, still pretty bright out.


A couple hours later I'm taking a shot of the full moon rising from the screen on the side window. The town was below, no one there but us. What a good nights sleep we had.

OK, you lost me with the beans. LOL but still nice pics. I hope you don't serve any of those beans to the dogs, that will be one serious popping night.

Ah. I have a Northstar. I'm headed up to your state sooner or later to my niece's ranch. But not in winter - if I prolong my stay into cold weather, it'll get parked in her barn.

More pics, please!

Threerun, I enjoy your pictures and stories of your adventures. Someday I'd love to relocate to Montana or mountains of Wyoming.
