The list of things to do from the last trip is already as long as my arm!
Come to think of it.. we still haven't unloaded it from the last trip yet

Got mine home after a few hundred miles towing right at the limit (nearly 5k) and the next day I get a CEL for something to do with heating or sensing temp of the DEF. Seems to be running fine, but obviously needs to go in (still under warranty).

I've got the same size BFG ATs on it now as you, Geek. Looks like the dealer can reprogram for them to show proper speed, so I'll ask about that when it's in. Also, my local dealer is a Renntech dealer, so I'm really thinking about doing the ECU tune they have. Haven't found anyone who didn't like it, nor anyone reporting any problems with it (and some have a LOT of miles with it). 80 more HP and 100 more ft-lbs is gonna be pretty noticeable. Also removes the 82MPH speed limiter. You thought about doing that, Geek? Guessing it's not new to you, anyway.

Can't mountain bike in these parts. We've been having rain nearly every day, and often biblical amounts, for WEEKS now. I was at the beach for two of those (and did some fatbike riding in the sand for workouts), but this is getting really old. Everything is soup...*sigh*

This guy was camping in the Parking lot of Winter Park yesterday morning. I guess they are less strict for Mountain Bikers than they are for skiers?

I'm going to have to take advantage of this...

Could it be more that in the winter, it's harder to maintain the parking lot if there are vehicles in it or are Mt. Bikers just really that cheap a mofo (except when it comes to bling)?

That's a good point.

I think it is also a "volume" thing. The busiest day with mountain bikers has less people than the least busiest day with skiers.

We never stood in line once... just walked up and got on the lift each time.
We got there at 9:30 (i.e. not early) and parked right up next to the base.

Dunno.. Too much stuff going on right now (summer is too short.. fun stuff comes first! ).

They are sitting in the garage.. I can do them any time; but not in a hurry.
I have other things I'd rather get done on the van first if I get van work time.

In the meanwhile more of:

Out on a road trip and saw a pre 07 sprinter van in utah, so naturally i get closer to gawk/look for new ideas to adapt to my 04.

In the location of the rear driver side window they had a hard cover and there with a lock in the middle. Found it online used by westfalia. Have you guys seen how these work? Itd be great if these could open and fold up to full open air atrium style
