    It's red.
    So I finally got around to uploading some of the decent photo's from my trip to Oregon on the easter long. Our main purpose was to drive down to Bend, OR to get our new CVT Mt. Bachelor tent, which we did. After we went back north and stayed at Ft. Stevens state campground for three nights and tested out the tent.

    For all those looking for an RTT, got with CVT! Bobby is a totally awesome, really nice guy to work with. There was a little hiccup with our tent and we ended up getting upgraded to a Mt. Shasta. He's a very good communicator and will go the extra mile to make sure you're a happy customer, and the tent is fantastic, they have thought of everything.

    And now for the pictures.

    Just outside of Bend, OR, stopped to get a pic of the truck with the freshly mounted tent. That's my amazing wife/ co-pilot smiling back at y'all.

    The tent folded out off the side of my truck.

    The wife and I out on the beach, we'll have a lot of these photos infront of major landmarks as we continue to travel North America.

    It's still not as tall as some of the 4runners going about with tents mounted on their roofs. I also don't intend to go ripping around corners in the desert with it on...:D

    Sorry guys, it's been done anyway. I'm personally a big fan of the high clearance prerunner look and not such a fan of wrap around bumpers, plus I save a shit tonne of cash moneys when I build armor myself. I'll have some pics posted up pronto of my wheeling from today.

    You can see my new "high clearance" bumper here, Wasn't that high clearance apparently, my brother managed to hit something and bent it up, would have been a whole lot of body damage had it not been there though.
