Best part about Sunday camping is every one heads home and the best spots open up

We scored a great spot on the Slate River above Crested Butte. Might have to spend a few days here

20 feet from the van:

We were at a knee deep stream crossing near Gunsight Pass (thAt stopped us in the Sprinter) earlier today and while looking at it a yellow sportsmobile 4x4 van came across it.

Cheryl turned to me and said 'maybe we should spend that 20 grand on the 4x4 conversion...

Wives are good at spending money. DAMHIK.

Congrats to you two, by the way. When I told Olivia she said "Cool".

So Geek, what is left to do (or at least that you have thought of)?

The improvements just seem to have no end to them. Every time I think "Perfection" you prove me wrong.

The next big thing will be the Interweave fabric so I can do the headliner, window treatments etc. I also have to do all the drawers and lower cabinet doors still.

We are camping in the van in Ouray as I type this and I'm making a list of items that seems to keep growing () but overall layout and functionality is good.

I still need to do the finished counter and vertical cabinet on the drivers side and I think we agree I'm going to make the vertical cabinet on the passenger side longer.

Then there is the sofa cushions and....

Brad you are winding me up

I love Ouray. The Best Western on the South end of the town has a bad ass hot spa. I bet you can sneak in.
