My oldest son and I enjoyed the Northwest Overland Rally, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. We camped with friends, and each of us led a group of 4x4 enthusiasts on "trail rides" in the Central Washington area. Here's some photos:

























We go to this rally every year, and it's just an awful lot of fun. Good people, good country, and some mighty interesting "overlanding" machines.

Regards, Guy

Nice pictures and I am sure it was enjoyable.

Seeing the picture of opening the gate reminded me of the old tombstone shaped sign that I came across once back when our Mark Twain Forest had some open range cattle running on parts of it in the glades. "Here Lies the Last SOB That Did Not Shut the Gate".

The food looks good!

That Airtop deal on top of the white Jeep is something I've never seen before.

That's one kind of "roof top tent." The RTT has gained huge popularity with the folks who camp with their 4x4 rigs and wander to remote places. Very fast to set up or take down, and much heavier material than a normal backpacking or recreational tent. I don't have one, but yes, they're pretty cool.

The things I don't like about roof-top-tents:

1. Expensive. Usually $1500+

2. Heavy. Usually 150 pounds or so, and all that weight is up high. I don't like that.

3. Requires breaking camp, just to drive the Jeep someplace... Hmm. I'd rather have a base camp, and be able to drive the Jeep without taking down the tent just 'cause I want to be mobile.

So, I stick with my little 6 pound, $175 backpacking tent.
