    Tim,
    What a great time hanging out with you at the 3 Step Hideaway 2nd Annual Desert Rendezvous. I came home to cold, rain and snow. Great job on the drone shot of the riding group! Thanks for giving me a tour of your amazing van build. You are a man of many talents, and I look forward to riding with you in the Fall.

    Ride safe my friend,
    TaZ9

    Up here in Canadastan our idiot libtard leader has made pot legal here.
    So now the entire country can be filled with stoned drivers.
    Please be extra careful riding here.
    Glad I found your new posts Tim.
    I won't be making it to Alaska this year.
    The replaced shoulder won't be healed in time but I hope to see you when you pass through Prince George.
    Keep the thread going here....

    You should rub some CBD oil on your new shoulder, then eat an edible to help you sleep.
    Thank me later...

    Hope the WeBoost works for you. Our experience has been mixed, but it will turn 1 bar LTE into 3 bars, which is generally enough to work with.

    How are the Anakees on gravel? Looks to be a road-biased tire, sort of like the Metzlers on my bike...

    Breakfast here at 3 Step...yummy :thumb

    IMG_4938.jpg

    Yep

    IMG_4931.jpg

    Got the Weeboost installed in the van....super easy...went from less than one bar too a solid three bars with Verizon LTE...streaming HD youtube and Amazon Prime videos without any problems...very pleased.

    You can see the small vertical antenna on the rear of the van next to the over the air TV antenna.

    IMG_4935.jpg

    Attached the antenna mount to the existing roof rail.

    Two more friends, Bob (eddyturn on ADV) and his wife Jane also came over from Colorado for a visit in their beautiful Sportsmobile super off road camper van...Bob has a R1200GS and a WR back at the house.

    Most of my riding is back roads tarmac....the Anakees do well on the gravel with my easy riding style...and last a long time on the DR!

    I have no words....I've met terror head on and survived...Scott took me for a 200 mph ride up, down, around, over, and through the mountains (well it felt like it) in the buggy today...absolutely awesome!

    Before you sell the DR, consider turning it into this.

    Does this mean you will be extending your stay in Utah?
