    Got back last night from Lake George with the family and friends. Great camping weekend, little rain but nothing that really dampened the trip. Tired as all hell today, I need a recovery day...

    I have Monday off o_O half day Friday. Hitting up VT woods with the dog and people, probably. Yee haw.

    Ditch lights en route. I bought a kit w/ brackets on Amazon special. Lights might be mediocre BUT I have some cali raised LEDs I can put on there. Setting them up w/ connectors instead of hard wire so I can swap them out and put the white vs. amber ones on as I desire. And a CH4x4 switch to put it into the dash instead. I don't think I'll have more switches so one, maybe one more in the future, is plenty. The amazon kit comes with all the switches and wires and whatnot. For the cost, if I priced out a DIY wiring job, it would have been ~10 bucks cheaper. Plus a couple hours extra work. Just going straight to battery on this one w/ inline fuse. If I want to add more shenanigans in the future I'll get a fuse block or something but, for now no worries.

    Also bought some of the OEM bed lights @Unchained 5150 for when I have my topper on. 30$ also amazon special :rofl:

    For you northerners yall might see me in the infiniti pulling the trailer this Saturday. Heading up to Vermont to hit up Ben and Jerry's as well as Shelburne farms and museum. Then swap on over to New Hampshire and hit up Santa's village.

    That's my neck of the woods. I'm guessing you'll use Rt2 to get from Shelburne back east to NH, you'll pass right by my place. After you pass through Marshfield Village, you're going to start climbing, there will be three sections of road with a truck lane, we live right near the top of the last one, after you've passed Mollys Falls Pond on your right.

    Oh shiiiiii where in VT? I might be heading up too mid-day Friday. We have Monday off in RI for racist day victory day.

    But I'm trying to get toward southern VT, Somerset area. I don't want to drive all the way up to Northern VT again.

    One of the people I'm going with just found this as a potential camping spot about 20 minutes ago :rofl: .... any knowledge? We'll have about 3-5 trucks looking for a spot. But we're again hopefully aiming south.

    That's about a half hour from me. If you want some remote areas to drive through, going through Rowe/Monroe is interesting. That's one of the most remote areas in this state. If you drive by the decommissioned Yankee Rowe, you can see the casks that store the spent nuclear fuel from across the river. One side of the Hoosac Tunnel is pretty close and there's an abandoned pyrite mine near there too but I haven't been there.

    Nice. I've been through there a handful of times, but the group I usually go with goes way up north and I'm just trying to see if I can convince them southern VT has stuff too :p

    PS I've seen some bits - the dorset caves are NOT closed by the town, it's an angry land owner. But the town's not doing much to stop them. It sounds like all the town and locals wanted to do it but had no legal footing, so some dude got fed up and went for it, and nobody's really motivated to stop them.

    There's no camping at the pond that you'd get a truck to. There are a few tent sites, but you'll have to hike or paddle to them. I'd suggest Groton SF - New Discovery Campground for something in this area. https://vtstateparks.com/newdiscovery.html

    The pyrite mine is actually in Rowe. It has been abandoned for around 100 years. I don't know who owns the land or if there are any signs - I've only driven by.

    Cool beans - thank you for the advice!

    We're looking for a lake front site if possible, bringing the kayaks, too. No worries - I think we're going to try the reservoir down at the air strip this weekend. At least there's a lot of backups should it be less than ideal.

    Interesting. Might have to swing by. I don't have the land owner maps on Gaia, someone who's with us might though.

    I mean I'd expect nothing less for an overlund trailer. In reality though I'm jealous. I've been eying getting an M101A1 more as a utility trailer, but also so I could take it camping if needed. Mainly because most trailers are just built so shitty. I hate borrowing a friends trailer or renting a uhaul one and u loaded/ unloaded they are pogo-sticking all around on the highway. They've almost all got shitty hardware with fender flares and such falling off, generally thin materials being used. Just general overall garbage construction IMO.

    Crazy times for job searches. Friday is actually my last day at my current job, end of a 14 year career. A little scary and exciting at the same time. I start with a new company on Monday. Basically doing the same thing just different patch on my shirt.
