Ironically I was off the Grid for most of June some of it camping with my Trooper and another trip on my dual sport. I also worked a very long 2weeks of overtime. I'm up in Maine with my wife and one my youngest son at Maine Huts and Trails.
I didn't bring the trooper this time, but I will someday.

My little Diesel Troop is running great, leaks a little oil and is due for some new brakes. But it is a fine little overlander and like Paul Evan says, I put it to the test and it consistently delivers.
Future plans:

I have some cool Soild Steelies I'm am going to powder coat black and put some new BF Goodrich 31" AT's on. I couldn't make Uwharrie this spring, but I am working on attending Hallowharrie this year!
I'm honored to be ROTM. See you on the trails.
