I used to live near and drive by High Voltage's truck in Amana Iowa all the time. Inspirational truck there. A few days before joining here I was on MarkMC's website and saw a truck in his gallery. I emailed him about it and he told me that the owner was a member here. Turns out it was Jamesdub's truck. My truck will be setup similar to his some day.

Another cool rig I just saw on TV, UNICAT. High dollar and high capability. I like expedition trucks.

Just a bit absurd, but cool at the same time. My wife would like camping in that though, haha.

When you are filthy rich everything becomes absurd. How can you call staying in that camping? Definitely not GWNF trail friendly. :lol:

We brought our daughter up from age 1 to tent-camp with us. After 15 years with her, 25 years for us, we got sick of setting up and packing up on mud and in the rain, and we got a *really* nice Trail Manor fold up trailer. Bathroom, fridge, drawer storage, furnace. Horrified, she declared that we no longer were "camping", but merely "sleeping near trees".

Yah, I can go for that. We paid our dues.

Bullshit tractor light in front of the round grill holes. Doubt the lights even work. You start it via the windshield wiper knob.
